The staff was very friendly in a homey atmosphere. Generous portions and the hush puppies were delicious. Right at the beach in Surfside. We'll definitely go here again.

I just LOVE this place from the hush puppies to the catfish and even Bubettes Good Doins salad. There isn't a bad thing on the menu.

Basket of deep fried pickles were delicious (especially since they were free with coupon). Loved the décor. Lunch specials were just the right amount of food. Clam chowder had great flavor and contained lots of potatoes/clams

We were going to have lunch across the street for the view but decided to go to Bubba's to avoid having to pay for parking and we were so glad we did. We split the fried shrimp and oyster baskets. We opted for one order regular fries and an order of sweet potato waffle fries. The seafood was fabulous and... More

My husband and I had the shrimp platter. It was very good. The place was busy, the staff was very friendly, and they were quick and efficient.

Had lunch here and totally enjoyed the specials. Had their creek shrimp basket which was very tasty. Lots of shrimp and fries. And the soft drinks were bottomless. Great place for a fun lunch. Did I mention that the service was super!

Such a nice outdoor place to eat, very well decorated with a nautical theme....one of my favourite bars in the area. I will admit their food is great, if not a tad bit pricey (probably due to the crappy ownership of Jack Divine), but overall a warm place to eat, and nejoy a view. Thy have a decent beer selection,... More

This restaurant located right in the heart of Surfside Beach is always a great hit for us when guests come calling. A very family oriented spot with great food and very interesting décor. We have always been greeted by exceptionally friendly staff. Get a sweet tea and roam around and check out the interesting articles on the wall or fun... More
