Our family (a party of about 20 including 4 kids) visited during our VA beach trip this year as our family meal. The seating was tight, and for those that did not like seafood the only selection available was a cheeseburger which we had to ask for without crabmeat (the menu has the burger topped with crabmeat) my son ended up with cheesy bread for a meal (yes that was a meal on the kids menu). The oysters Rockefeller were the worst we had on our 7 day vacation. If you need to come with a large party OR have members or your party that want a different option other than seafood, go elsewhere. We won't be back.

A local recommended this place and it was just perfect. A casual place, with fresh caught fish and a beautiful view of the bay! Just off the beaten path, but well worth it!

Visited here for lunch, for our bi-annual visit to the Tidewater area.

We brought friends this time who enjoyed sandwiches. I dined on the stuffed flounder which was again delicious.

While on vacation we choose Bubbas to bring our party of 6 to. They were not very friendly. We were seated and after 15 minutes of no acknowledgment my husband went up to the hostess and let them know we were still waiting. She said someone would be right over. We waited 5 more minutes and then left. I told the hostess when we left why we were leaving and she just shrugged her shoulders. Very very rude. We left and went to Docksides which was not only a great meal but the atmosphere was fantastic

After long day of sightseeing, we enjoyed cold drinks and the freshest ever seafood (soft shell crab, calamari, shrimp and rockfish). Waterside table 2 foot from the water, could have been more enjoyable. Expensive, but worth it!
