While the wife and I were staying in Murrells Inlet during February we stopped into Bubba's twice for dinner. Both times the food was Great, service was attentive and the bill was nice! Not too expensive! We had Flounder Baskets both times and we enjoyed them. I would say to give them a try if you are in the area.... More

The all you can eat catfish was so good. So was the chicken fingers. They gave you bunches of fries. The sweet tea was SWEET! The service was excellent and they were constantly busy!

Went Monday night for dinner with friends, 4 adults, one tween, one infant. We had a great time! Fun decor and atmosphere, friendly, fast and efficient server, and not only was the food good, but the menu was as well- my daughter is not a big fan of a variety of seafoods but they had lots to choose from.

Blackened Grouper sandwich, I have never ordered anything else. We have been vacationing here for 10 years and we have never ordered anything else. Delicious sandwich, bucket of beer with the salt breeze blowing in your face needing say more.

Not bad food or service. we did make the mistake of ordering a table full of appetizers. They brought us exactly what we ordered and it was all fried. (I think it was all cooked in the same grease) Can't bring myself to go back. Not really their fault.

This was a very interesting place to eat. Very casual. The fried clams were excellent as were the fish fingers.

We really loved the funky atmosphere there. Lots of cool stuff hanging on the walls ,looks like a real fish shack with picnic tables on the deck and a great view of the beach. We got the fried pickles to start with and they were the best we've had. The grouper sandwich and fish and chips and hush puppies were... More
