Very casual, but great appetizers!

We ducked inside this restaurant to escape an afternoon storm while walking on the marsh walk. We ordered a round of appetizers which were very tasty. Our server was attentive to the fact that we had two hungry boys in our party and was ready to suggest extra hush puppies. Great seafood, but... read more

A little on the expensive side, but large portions. We had salads and the burger was cooked perfectly for one of our fussy customers. Highly recommended and the staff was attentive.

....everything was perfect. I see some less than perfect reviews on here, and as a restaurant owner I know there are good days and bad. often numerous factors lead to a bad experience, however this was perfect for us. we started by first looking at the menu.... we were unsure at first but the place was strangely alluring.... sort of...

I ate here twice the first time was great food. Loved it actually for lunch. The Second time? Well... I showed up with friends a party of like 8 of us. 10 minutes before lunch ended we were sat down. Lunch menus in hand we quickly wanted to order and then the waiter came by and actually took the menus... More

Just had appetizers and Pina Coladas. Just ok. Nothing special. The drinks were not very good. Atmosphere is fun, casual and on the water. Those are the best parts.

Just wanted to say thank you for such an enjoyable experience. The food was amazing, loved the hush puppies with cranberry butter. The view was enjoyable and the breeze off the water was pleasant. Our server WILLIAM was the best waiter ever. Always smiling and very people friendly. He is a great asset to your restaurant. We will defiantly be... More

A casual, colorful and quirky shack that gives you everything you'd ever want from a place with a name like "Bubba's Love Shak". My mom and I went for lunch and had an order of hush puppies and shrimp & grits to split. The hush puppies were good, however, being from up North, we don't really have anything to compare... More

Have been there twice and I will go back again and I recommend to all my friends. Has a wide variety of food, seafood, burgers, etc. We even asked for grilled chicken on a wrap instead of fried and it was no problem.

I had lunch there yesterday and ordered the special - fish tacos - for $11.25. Server was friendly, but knew very little about the way the dish would be prepared. The tacos were tiny -- two small tortillas with one small bite of fish and very little garnish. The sauce was tasty, but I was extremely disappointed with the serving... More
