One of my favorites for a quality but quick dinner

One of my favorites! Good food, very casual but good eats. Every time we visit the area we stop in for crab cakes and shrimp. Quick service but the beer is cold and food comes quick and is fresh.

Small joint but huge flavor! We've ordered out apps& soup& tried the bbq food last night! Fried pickles are very good (huge serving)! Wings, ribs & bbq pork are to die for! We loved this place!

Kids as Hostesses, and not caring or knowing how to act. Food So-So. Waitress got upset when I went I had to go to the bar to ask for condiments (we had been ignored). Does Divine have any training of their waitress staff?

We take all our out of town guest there because it's really southern. The food is really good, wonderful hush puppies. The seafood is always cooked well. The atmosphere is "laid back" and fun. We go early to get ahead of the crowd. I have to mention the wait staff. They are very friendly and helpful. We always have a... More

This place was convenient to where we were staying. Menu was mostly seafood and also mostly fried. I did ask for a deviation in menu (wanted half fried oysters and half fried shrimp instead of all platters of each) and was told that couldn't be done. So one of us ordered the fried oysters and the other the fried shrimp.... More

We ate at Bubbas for the first time based on it's rating with Trip Advisor. It is a typical beachy bar/restaurant, but not typical in taste. I had the flounder sandwich and my husband had the grouper fingers. Both were cooked deliciously and were around $8-$10. I had a pineapple and coconut drink that was good. We will eat there... More

Took my family here for dinner on our first night in town. Beware parking is limited and you may need to pay. We were told the the wait for the six of us to get seated would be about 20 minutes, but we were called in less than 10 minutes. Our server suggested an appetizer of fried pickles or fried... More

Not my favorite spot BUT the conveniences makes up for what the food lacks. Not that the food is bad it's just a simple menu. It offers families who don't want to haggle with the crowds a nice place to eat while staying close to their place. We recommend it for families in the area.

My group of 5 consisted of my uncle, who cannot eat gluten. The waitress, Tonia, was very understanding. She showed us everything that was gluten free, which was surprisingly bountiful. They offered to grill anything except for their cod, which was nice. It didn't take long for the food to arrive, and it tasted great!
