“Off fish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Everyone raved about this place, considering it was on the ocean, why was the fish off and why did it cost $40 for a couple of pieces of fish and some chips?????

“GREAT VALUE AND DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I was at Bub's last weekend and had a very enjoyable experience. We fed the fam (2 kids and 2 adults) for around $50 bucks and EVERYONE was happy....we had the big seafood platter and there was more than enough food, it was really good value!
The fish was really fresh and everything was delicious. Sitting right on the waters edge is just a bonus! Great value and great food.

“Best of what?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

Bubs claim they are the best FaC in all of NSW. How very wrong! Once we got there the place was a dump! The tables and floor were covered in food, the bins were over flowing and had a very horrible smell! The woman serving us was rude and the food was not at all reasonably priced. It arrived dry, stale, tasteless and just plain bad. Would not visit or recommend!

“Not famous in our circle!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Not sure what Bub's is famous for but as far as we are concerned after spending over AD$300 to feed 4 average families. Bub's is now FAMOUS for the crappiest and most over priced FnC we have ever had. The service was very slow. The fish (flathead) were likened to fish fingers from the supermarket. Squid like small pieces of had rubber.
Bub, stop ripping off the tourists and get your act together!

Never coming back!

“Overpriced and over rated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Overpriced and over rated. Don't do it, just go else where, plenty of better fish n chip shops in the area. How do they keep winning awards? Maybe they serve 1 kind food to the judges and another to the rest of us because its certainly not award winning food I bought today.
