“OVERPRICED FOR SELF-SERVE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

This grubsteak fish house is in a barn like atmosphere surrounded by TVs and noisy kids. Food is good but the self-serve environment does not merit the mid-high pricing for an uninteresting entree. The salad bar with dinner is class C as are the packaged rolls they serve to you in a plastic basket when you pre-pay at the cash register. A good last resort to feed the kids a pizza and let them play arcade games while mom and dad enjoy over-poured margueritas made with cheap well tequila. Tables are all bussed en masse so you may be seating yourself and waiting for the next bus boy pass our cleaning up someone else's mess. The sawdusst on the floor thankfully soaks up much of the unattended spills.

“When you want a lot of food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This place is too casual for us. Place is cavernous, noisy. Food is OK but quantity not quality seems to be the draw. Friends kept telling us to go, and the place is very popular with locals, and has been for years. It is just not the place to relax and enjoy a meal and quiet conversation at the end of a busy day.

“Always Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

It doesn't matter when you go to Zubie's. The food is always great and they give you a ton of it. The service is "order and get your own" and the place is funky enough to work really well! Great drinks also!

The food is average. Can be over priced for the value.
