“Service was great, food just okay”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Their lunch menu had several choices at very reasonable prices. We both had the seafood platter which came with three shrimp, a crabcake, fish, hushpuppy and two sides and a small piece of cake. The shrimp and friend pickles were greasy and smelled like the cooking oil needed to be changed. The fish and crabcake were okay but not the best I have had. I might go hear again, but would not order fried food.

“Greasy”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

For the price 17.00 to 25.00 the food was not worth it. Everything seemed greasy, and from a can. I wished we had gone somewhere else. The server was very nice though.

“Only ok!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

It was not our intention to eat here, but we had been to several restaurants without much success. It is a pleasant restaurant, service acceptable and food average. really expect more when restaurants build themselves up.

“A Tale of Two Meals”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

During our 3 night stay at Orange Beach, we ate at Bubba' on the 1st and 3rd nights - 3rd being Christmas Day.

The first meal was ok and the beer was cold. Our server was pretty attentive. Our 2nd night we ate at Docs, Bubba's sister restaurant and their food was excellent. The 3rd evening Christmas Day was disappointing throughout. The server was rushed off her feet, the place was packed out and the food mediocre.

There is clearly big demand at this time of year and local businesses would benefit from a review of their menu and service offered.

We made the most of our food and drink selections and were indeed more fortunate than a couple sitting opposite us, who waited an hour for their food and it eventually arrived stone cold.

We felt sorry for the servers who clearly had had a very busy day.

“Made our day!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Christmas Day means not much open, but we found Bubba's and were so glad! Our server, Dee, took us in hand and took such good care of us. Food was good, beer was cold and service was terrific. Prices were reasonable, too. I got grilled shrimp with 2 sides after we split a dozen delicious raw oysters. There were 2 skewers of 6 each seasoned and done nicely. Husband got Bubba's platter and just couldn't eat it all so I got 1/2 of one crab cake. It was delicious. We just couldn't have been happier. Thanks, Bubba's, for making our Christmas Day dinner.
