A local restaurant with okay food. Good for social gathering. Pleasnt staff & good service. Don't expect the culinary experience of your life, but for locals, many gather for social time. Their fish & seafood dishes are their best.

Good variety on the menu and good number of specials. If you get a seat near the window, there is a great view of the lake.

How did I miss this place before? Hands down the best beer and chowder and most interesting people to talk to in this area. Directly across from the lake, five minutes to the ski area. They have an eclectic menu ranging from pizza to seafood to specials like Cuban sandwich, risotto loaded with local ingredients. Great place to dine with... More

Bubba's is a great place for bar food. The staff is friendly and efficient. My family and I have been there many times and appreciate the consistency . We never have to worry about getting served garbage, which by the way can happen at the new place down the road, Suna. We'll stick with reliable Bubba's

Everyone loved their meal at Bubba's. We were a party of nine - four adults and five children - and they were very kind to us. My son's nut allergy was easily accommodated. I would definitely go back next time I am in the area!

My family of four went to dinner one night and had such a good experience, we went back again as a group of 8 the following night. The servers were very friendly and the food was really good. Some had the fish and chips - a large portion, lightly breaded and delicious. Kids meals are reasonable, with the exception of... More

My family goes to Bubbas regularly for weekly dinners but this is the first time I tried their catering although I knew it would be great and it was. Bob is easy to work with and knows his customers so well!

The food here is creative...but it is over priced! You are really paying for being across from the lake....Thats the only attraction to this place.....service is hit or miss.....been here 4 times only because we went swimming.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to see Christmas display at the Fells. So glad we did! We got a table overlooking Sunapee Lake. I had a Reuben and my friends had the Monte Cristo. Both were very good and waitress was pleasant was well as efficient.
