The place isn't very big but we didn't have a long wait. We had burgers and sweet potato tots. Super good. Service excellent. Can't wait to go back.

After a long day working a convention and cocktail reception, everyone in our group was looking for something casual and relaxing, and Bubba's sounded like just the place. Our instincts were right, as we got casual and relaxing, but also much better food than we had anticipated.
As one would expect, they had a very good beer selection, but the real surprise was their menu. Much more extensive than you would expect from a bar, and very eclectic, ranging from burgers to steaks to salads, to mexican. We split two "tater-tot" appetizers - Sweet Potato Tots and Buffalo Tots. I'm not a big Sweet Potato fan, but even I couldn't leave those tots alone. As good as they were, the Buffalo Tots will probably remain the coolest bar food idea I've had the pleasure to eat for quite some time. Kuddos to whoever dreamed that up.
For my meal, I went with the Haystack burger, which really hit the spot. The best of everything - great beef, bacon, mushrooms, swiss, and haystack onions. Fries were great, too. Recalling the meal, I'm wondering how I was able to put it all away, but it was just that good.
Hoping to try them for breakfast on my next trip to Traverse City.

more relaxed atmosphere. service was very good. we tried the red quesadilla and loved it--unique. Many beverage selections. The service staff works as a team to help expedite food delivery. It really is the best pub food in TC.
