On our way back to Florida from Outer Banks. We obviously ate our fair share of seafood during stay in OBX. Tubbs didn’t disappoint! Rich creamy she crab soup. I suggest you share. We shared fried (of course) platter of shrimp (2 perfect) oysters(amazing) scallops(tiny)crab...cake (all crab meat,no filler)and fish(large piece) the grits(very thick)and cole slaw (vinegar based) great sweet tea and friendly waitress. Definitely worth the short detour!More

I would like to think of ourselves as “ fish aficionados “ being from Alaska and with that noted...High Praise for Tubbs. The grilled Mahi was cooked perfectly, the She Crab soup tasted like more, the hush puppies were yummy and bang bang shrimp appetizer...with fresh coleslaw was a hit. Our waitress, Taylor, was friendly and attentive. Locals and visitors alike...don’t miss this little gem.More

Not sure how this is the number one ranked restaurant in Florence. They were the very definition of average. I had the Flounder Po Boy (average). My wife had the Mexican Hushpuppies (average), Root Vegetables (average), and the Collard Greens. The greens had a chance...to be a little above average, had they not been so insanely over salted. We also ordered Sweet Potato Pie, which (upon arriving back to our hotel room) we realized they didn't give us. Fortunately, they didn't charge us for it either. No need to return.More

The food at Tubbs was ok, not outstanding. The pkates are all large do go there with an appetite. The lobster and shrimp ravioli were much more shrimp than lobster and the sauce was too heavy, almost seemed like just melted cheese.

Tubb’s food was delicious! Our waitress, Sarah W. was excellent! I ate there for lunch and had blackened shrimp, grits, and vegetable roots. Tubb’s feels very home-y!

Went to visit my sister and told her I wanted delicious seafood. Tubb’s did not disappoint. I was actually full after the She Crab soup but kept eating until my stomach hurt bc everything was so delicious. Their Bang Bang shrimp is the best I’ve...ever had. Service was extremely friendly.More

I opened the Zillow app to look at houses so I could move to Florence to eat here all the time! Food is delicious. Service is great. OMG, fried green tomatoes, broiled scallops, root vegetables...to die for.

We are traveling and spent the night in Florence. We saw Tubbs had great reviews so we tried it. We were not disappointed. I got fried scalops and my wife got the scrimp. Both were spot on. My sides of grits and roasted corn were...both very good. My wife got the collards greens. She said they were the best she ever had. Their hush puppies were also great, especially with their lime butterMore

Traveling from Fayetteville, NC to Augusta, GA and looked for restaurants in or near Florence, SC. Tubbs Seafood showed up as a top 10 in Florence so we decided to try it. It is about 6 miles off I-95, and you would never find it...by driving by or just off an exit, but it is worth the trip. Old converted gas station with an additional screened patio. This is not a fancy place. It’s very local, which is great. Only about 10 tables during COVID, with a wait, but they have call ahead seating which is what we did, and waited about 5 minutes when we arrived at 7:45 p.m. on a Saturday night. She crab soup was delicious! We both ordered the “fried choose 2 with 2 sides.” Fried shrimp and fried oysters came 6 each on the plate. Not greasy at all. Shrimp and CrabCake on the other. CrabCake was very meaty. They have shrimp and grits with andouille sausage and a variety of other items as well. Very reasonable pricing.More

WHat an awesome experience. I talked to the manager on duty earlier in the day and told him we'd have around 15 head to seat @ 6:30. He said get here as soon as you can and we'll do what we can. We did and...he did. He sat us in two groups, one inside and one outside which was OK outside from the fact we had patrons on the same ticket in different spots. We advised the waitress to take the orders by uniform numbers and it went flawlessly, Not to mention the food, which was OUTSTANDING. Can't go wrong here and we will go back the next time we are in the Florence area.More

No. You don’t need a reservation. They do call ahead seating if there is a wait and you can have your name placed on the waiting list.

It is 3.5 miles from Hospitality Blvd. Not far at all.
