Great place to eat. Very casual with a nautical theme. Staff was friendly and the portions were fairly large. Would definitely go back.

I wanted to visit this place based on the reivews. Upon entering, I just didnt like the smell of the place. But being that we drove 25 min to get to it and had a family meet us there, we followed though. The prices were average, as was my popcorn shrimp, although I do have some advice if you are... More

Stopped here for a late afternoon meal and sat outside with a water view. It was very quiet being off season and between lunch and dinner. Service was quick and wait person was very nice. The clam strips and chicken fingers were tasty. Being from New England and seeing clams on the menu I had to remind myself that they... More

No wimpy little dishes here big portions of fresh, tasty well prepared seafood. Fast service, staff excellent. Well worth a sidetrip down by the Surfside pier

Raw oysters were mediocre at best. But the peel and eat shrimp were fabulous! It was nice to discover that a hole-in-the-wall place was just a walk across the lot from where we were staying. Taylor did a fabulous job taking care of us and we plan to return on the next trip to Surfside Beach.

OK "Bubba's Fish Shack"....... this is not white tablecloths and fine dining. Who cares! I like good food and a good value; I found it here. My wife and I weren't starving so we tried the basket meals; she got flounder and I got oysters. Both were tasty, perfectly seasoned or breaded. We shared an order of mussels dripping in... More

After a horrible 80.00$ meal of greasy hush puppies and greasy seafood we searched and found Bubbas Fish Shack in our back door. Best on the beach so far. Friendly people and great service. Very good prices we ate and drank for 64.00$. Hats off to Bubbas at Surfside beach.

My wife and I had a great grouper sandwich on the deck! Place was a bit "rustic" but that only enhanced our experience. Great place!

We ate here and I ordered the all you could eat Catfish Special. Well, they gave you so much food the first round I couldn't do another plate so the waitress offered to just bill us for the catfish platter without us needing to ask. The service was quick and the our waitress was very attentive even though it was... More

Great relaxed atmosphere near the beach with great food and great service! We were told it would be a 15 minute wait and we were seated in about 10. Manager was at the front and keeping good eye on things. Got an appetizer of calamari and it was perfect! The jalapeño jelly was a nice touch and the cocktail sauce... More
