While staying in Surfside beach me and my family decided to check this place out. Just steps away from the pier. Good seafood for decent price. The fried pickles and popcorn shrimp basket were both tasty.

Good food at a decent price right off the beach. Very touristy, can get noisy quickly. Portions are good for sharing. We often split the catfish basket.

We stumbled on Bubba's when the restaurant we were going to was closed. Nice eclectic atmosphere, great wait staff, and yummy food. Fried seafood was well prepared. We will go back!

You may have to wait for a table, but it is always worth it! Bubba's is part of our annual summer beach trip tradition. The fried pickles are awesome, and the shrimp basket keeps us coming back every year! I highly recommend it!!!

Bubba's is always at the top of my list to have dinner. As a local, when I'm looking for something fast and good, Bubba's always enters into the conversation. It all depends on where I am. Cold beer, great fish dinners and wonderful onion rings.

We stopped in here for lunch and really enjoyed it. We sat out on the front porch which was a block off of the ocean. The scenery was great and the service was also very good. We all had different baskets, fried cod, fried catfish, fried flounder and fried clams. For side items we had coleslaw, fries and onion rings.... More

Went with several family members aged 7-80 while visiting the Surfside Beach/Myrtle Beach area. We all tried different baskets from the lunch menu: catfish, clam strips, chicken tenders, and creek shrimp. Several of the older members of our family shared a basket in order to keep from overeating as the portions are generous. All baskets come with fries, and we... More

We had another excellent meal at Bubba's! We ate there the first week of October and the food and service were excellent!
