I have been there about 10 tiimes. The location is great and I enjoy eating outside, looking at the ocean.

Casual southern seafood that is really good. Do not miss jalapeño dip on calamari! Not real hot so do not be afraid.

Not much to say except that if you like fried food...it's just OK. Wait staff were friendly...atmosphere is old wood floors, table cloth was brown paper, beer was cold, It's cheap, quick and a little greasy. There are a lot better places to go....

We have eaten at Bubba's on a few trips. The grouper fingers were fantastic! My husband and son had the catfish which was wonderful and the hushpuppies were very tasty. We will visit again.
