“Great ocean side locale, along with tasty food !”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Went for lunch to avoid the dinner crowd and Bubba's lived up to all the positives reviews. The look and atmosphere of the place fits right in with its beach location. There is outside seating on the front porch, as well as inside, your choice. We were seated immediately and the service was outstanding - very friendly server.
We started off with the nickle pickles (free with coupon) and hush puppies (10 for $2.99) both were very tasty, and I would recommend them both as starters . Since we were there for lunch we took advantage of the $5.99 specials. There are about 10 specials to choose from and the potions are plentiful. Our group ordered the double cheeseburger, chicken strips, and the BBQ sandwich and they were all outstanding. And the best part - the check did not break our wallet! Great food, nice atmosphere and friendly service - made for an enjoyable experience.

“Favorite meal my whole trip!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

The food was delicious...we had raw oysters and shared a platter of fried clam strips, shrimp, and oysters served with fries and hushpuppies. The atmosphere was perfect, we sat outside while it rained and had a view of the ocean. You must go here if you stay at Surfside Resort, it's right across the street!

“Good casual restaurant”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

i stayed at a condo on surfside beach. This restaurant was close and had good food and a good value. I recommend the oyster sandwich and the oyster bucket. The fried oysters were tasty. They also allow for carry out so on 2 occasions I brought the food home.

“Ample portions”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Gave a lot of food for the money. Sat outside on a Tuesday evening about 5pm so there was not much of a wait. We were there as a family to be together and converse with one another and that we did. Timely refills and all went well.
Hostess must have been having a bad day when she pointed us outside. Waitress did her job. It was like no one that worked there wanted to be there. That's okay as we did not go there to be entertained by the staff
