McKenna is the best waitress in the world. She was very friendly and seemed to care a lot about her job. Will definitely come back and ask for her :)

Ambiance was good...waitress sucked. We sat outside and she ignored us, catered to a group of young men bypassing us. We never got a refill (tea is $2.99)...by the time the food arrived it was cold. The fries had been left out (hard, cold, stale). We told the waitress and she was like, "sorry". The fried shrimp was ok, but... More

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
