Pretty Good

We ate there for lunch one day last week while visiting from the North Myrtle Beach area. There was a super bead store I wanted to go to and when we left we asked for a nice place that had seafood lunch specials nearby and Bubba's was recommended. It was a fair price for what we received but I... read more

We visited in the afternoon around 7 pm... decent crowd not crowded... we ordered fried green tomatoes (they were yellow and red more than green) they tasted good but needed salt. I also ordered broiled spicey shrimp but there was not a lot of seasoning but okay. The Thai wings were really good with a nice flavor...more sweet vs. Spicey.... More

We go to Bubbas if we're desperate, lol. The service has been subpar the three times we've been there, and we've visited in different years.. There's plenty of other places you can spend your money for better food!

This a place that sounds fun to eat at but has awful food and burgers. Waitress staff was friendly but the grouper sandwich was a joke(little piece of grouper). The place next door Neal & Pams has much better food at a better price!

It was late and we were hungry so we chose the restaurant across the street from our hotel. We were so glad we did. The food was great the wait staff was awesome. We went to a chain seafood restaurant the next day and wished we had went back to Bubba's Fish Shack. I can't wait to go back.

The reason to come here is if you want to have drinks and walk back to your hotel, or if you don't feel like driving. There is better food all over Surfside. On this recent visit, I had the "homemade" clam chowder. It didn't taste homemade, and I don't believe it was homemade, but, whatever. It was thin, flavorless, almost... More
