Went to dinner there with a coworker and we ordered the scallops wrapped in bacon for an app which were very tasty. I also ordered the Yellow Fin tuna bites that were seared but on the edges and in large chunks but the center of each one was ice cold. The Catch of the day was average and the filet... More

The food here is pretty good. Service was very good. Renovation done. Stopped by on our boat heading south to Florida. My request is, please, can we have more grilled .. shrimp, fish choices, meat choices! Fried is good but many folks are shying away. Us as well. I have salmon on salad (special) and my husband had hamburger, no... More

After a few more minutes she took our food order. After 45 minutes we got our food. Asked for more coffee and got cold bottom... More

The food was good, combination seafood platter. Took almost an hour to get food after ordering and it was late afternoon, very few diners at this time. Hate to see how long of a wait if it was busy. Don't plan on a quick meal. Service was good but the time waiting was way too long.

We had our 2nd Annual Employee Appreciation Party at Tubby's and another huge success! The newly renovated Banquet room is beautifully done. Few decorations were needed in the beautiful space so I suggest you look at the room before planning. The staff and Manager, Alex were so attentive and efficient. The space is well equipped and offers a private entry... More

This used to be our go to place- we'll never go back. Our waitress brought our appetizer with no plates after asking for them she dropped them on the table. When she finally brought my daughters food she dropped the plate yet again and all the food when in our laps and all over the floor. I wiped the food... More

Swung by Tubby's in Thunderbolt. Atmosphere was cool. Staff was good. Food was just ok. Live music outside was pretty good but was very loud. I ended up leaving with a headache.

1 review 5.0 star rating 10/21/2016 Used Tubby's for a business dinner / meeting. From the very beginning, talking to Katie, Brooke, Melissa - the staff was amazing to deal with! The new back room at Tubby's is beautiful and a wonderful space to have a private party or business dinner. We had about 60 at our dinner and there... More

Wow, Tubby's offer the best sweetest, tasting shrimp you could ever eat. Something about GA shrimp, maybe it is something in the water but these are the best shrimp ever. I usually get the shrimp and grits entree but this time my wife and I both got the fried shrimp platter..the platter comes with 12 or so fried shrimp, spanky's... More
