We enjoy the atmosphere and the food is good. The mgr. comes around to see if alls well. It is by the water & you can let the little kiddies play in the sand.

“Endless fried shrimp and a salad bar. Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

There are always lots of folks at Bubba's and everyone is enjoying lots and lots of shrimp. The coating doesn't overpower the taste of the shrimp and the two side dishes are just right. Bubba himself has seated us both times we've eaten there and there is a real welcoming atmosphere.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

My brother-in-law loves Bubba's for lunch, especially on Monday's 'endless shrimp' days. He took us there for dinner this week - it's officially our new area favorite. Neither my husband or I took advantage of the endless fried shrimp, but he and my nephew dug in and loved them. My husband's grilled shrimp and my grilled oysters (totally new experience for me) were wonderful. The salad bar had a good selection that was truly fresh - no sour bagged salad smell that we've found elsewhere. Side dishes were great; try the homecooked greens if they're available. We ordered the sweet potato fries and fried okra - light breading on the okra and both the okra and sweet potato were tasty. No room for dessert, but we'll certainly go back soon to experience more. Another important note: my sister is very allergic to seafood and will usually only visit a salad bar at a restaurant that serves shellfish. We spoke to the waitress who assured her that there was no crossover use of cooking oil or prep areas with their shellfish - they're very aware of the danger to some people. We were quite impressed.

“Great Shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

My parents saw Bubba's on DayTripper, a local texas tv show. They had been once before & wanted to bring us here.

We had lunch here during spring break. The fried shrimp was awesome! This little place is well worth the drive. It sets right on the water & has a sand area for the kids to play. Nice relaxing views of the water. Great service.

Great local food. Not uppty or fancy. Just great shrimp. Will definitely be back.

“Worth a trip from any distance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Some of the freshest shrimp you will ever eat. Do not try to classify the shrimp by the usual large,jumbo etc. as they can be anywhere from large to super jumbo. I had one shrimp on my plate fully 5" long, and 1 1/2" diameter... took 5 bites to eat the whole thing! You really get the taste of the shrimp, as the breading is light and not greasy at all. I also had the blackened oysters... amazing. The bread pudding is good also, but the table next to us had the "don't ask chocolate cake" and for sure that is our dessert next trip!

After spending most of the week in Galveston, we found out about Bubba's and were we sorry it took so long. With most of the popular resturants on the seawall being Landry's joints, finding something different can be a chore. Will make this the eating spot of choice from now on!
