Just left this place and wow. Fried shrimp, catfish and hush puppies were ridiculously good. And the homemade tartar sauce was good enough to drink. Better than most of the so called Calabash restaurants in the area. For yourself a favor and go here when your at the beach

Food overpriced and small portions. Not much better than going to a fast food restaurant. Service was fair. Staff was friendly. Atmosphere was ok. Very loud and too many kids for me.

I had always wanted to try Bubba's Fish Shack because it looked interesting from the outside. The inside is just as interesting and the food was good.

We were staying in the the Surfside Beach area and we noticed this restaurant driving down Ocean Blvd. looking for a place to eat. Bubba's did not disappoint. I had the... More

If you are looking for a fried basket of seafood - well, here ya go! Definitely a beach bar atmosphere - no fine dining here - but very good food. We had the large sampler basket and everything was great - the grouper fingers for our 2year old were great too. Cold beer, fried seafood - good times. Will for... More

Food was great and reasonably priced. The catfish best I've had in a while. Our family of 8 liked everything we ordered. Fun place!

Had a very enjoyable visit here. Most of the food is fried, but it wasn't that heavy and the portions were very generous for a reasonable rate. Loved the old fashioned decor inside as well. No frills place, but pretty small. I'd try to go at less busy times, but this is a definite stop on our next visit to... More
