Start with a cheap beer, grabs a basket of hushpuppies ( usually excellent) , and go from there. Don't forget the swings downstairs & walk across the street to Scottys for a nightcap

Choose Bubba's two years ago based on Tripadvisor reviews and loved it. Conference took us back to Myrtle Beach and we went again and took more friends. The flounder is wonderful. These are probably the best hush puppies I have ever eaten. (sweet)

I guess working at a high end seafood in DC I am spoiled by the crab cakes we sell. Ours are 98% jumbo lump crab meat. What I got looked like a smashed salmon cake and was burnt. And I mean BURNT! I am a server, I never send my food back. But I did tonight. Absolutely the worst crab... More

Stayed down the st from here all week. Got takeout twice for 7 people. As far as ordering takeout it's impossible by phone. The first night it took 20 min to order. Sat on hold twice and called 10 times to get through. Bartender takes orders, fills orders, makes drinks, and takes all money. Pretty much everything while 3 girls... More

Was in the mood and looking for a great seafood dinner, didn't get it, sorry. Though we would share so I ordered the flounder dinner and my wife ordered the shrimp dinner. The flounder was about average but the shrimp was under cooked, the slaw was dry a flavorless. The fries were so-so and the hushpuppys were not all that.... More

Food was FANTASTIC and reasonably priced. While eating our food my husband and I looked at each other and said we will be back before we leave! Service was friendly and food was served quickly and hot!

Nice late lunch with friends. We had shrimp and catfish platters. Food was hot and tasty. Service was good as well. Note that most of the menu is fried food.

My husband had the all you can eat catfish. They were big pieces and he said some of the best he'd had. I had a blackened mahi mahi sandwich. It too was great. Really enjoyed our meal.

I had blackened grouper and it was really good. I don't really care for blackened but it was the only thing not deep fried . We had a party of 15 and the service was great . The hushpuppies were very good .Over all everyone was happy with the fish and service. I would have rated this higher if they... More
