Very good lunch!

We had lunch here and the food was really good. I had the pulled pork and my fiance had the Po' Boy. My pork sandwich was very juicy and had just the right amount of sauce. We tried the hush puppies and they were HUGE. I would recommend stopping here if you're in the area.

Staff was friendly and efficient. Food was delicious. It was a great experience!! Apparently, a favorite for many if the talk and crowds were an indication.

Bubba's Fish Shack is always a must when we visit Myrtle Beach. It's a short, enjoyable drive from where we stay that offers nice ocean views from its outdoor dining area. Bring a marker to leave your mark on the deck or building. There are thousands of signatures and small graffiti all over it. It's fun to look back each... More

Fun atmosphere, loved looking around. I recommend the po' boy sandwich, it was great. The kids liked coloring on the paper table covers while we waited.

Went with 7 other family members on a Sunday night. Hour wait. Tables were a bit crowded, not much leg and arm room. Service was decently quick at first, then got a bit slow. Food was pretty good. Portions are huge! Coleslaw needs a little work. Would eat here again. Good place for fried fish and a drink with family

After a half day of golfing, my husband and I were looking for a seafood restaurant but not one of the many buffets that dot Myrtle Beach. We found Bubba's and we're glad we did. Fresh fried flounder, hush puppies, coleslaw, french fries were on the flounder platter. We also had an appetizer of Fried pickle nickles with ranch dressing... More

A go to every year when we are having fish. Easy to walk to and if you get there early, before 5:30, you won't have a long wait. Just a great beach atmosphere with good food!

Loved the river shrimp. This is the restaurant to go to if you love fried food. Great ambiance, cold beer and excellent corn meal battered river shrimp with fries. Great outdoor sitting area.
