The food was pretty good. My friends and I sat on the deck outback and enjoyed our lunch with a nice view of the lake. I would definitely recommend them if you are in the area.

Three of us had the lunch buffet with salad bar. One had the quesadilla and fry platter. Every bit as good as last year. Missed the cornbread though. They had small rolls instead. If you love home cooked food, this is for you. We sat outside on their covered deck. Watched all the boats on the lake. Perfect day, great... More

Had lunch recently with my family. I had been here years ago under previous management, and the BBQ was excellent and cheap. Things have changed for the worse on food quality, my ribs were very dry and with little favor, my wife pulled pork the same, and the nachos cheese was some strange concoction closer to fracking than milking.On the...

Had a pulled pork sandwich. Pork was dried out as if it was under a heat lamp for a very long time. The owner is very sweet as she walked around the tables. I didn't say anything about the food as my dinner was a treat from a friend of mine sitting next to me. The onion rings however were... More

We're not BBQ experts; this was convenient. Had the pulled chicken platter & the fried chicken. Portions are huge. Draft Sam Adams Summer Ale was excellent.

Take a seat on one of our two expansive decks and enjoy a meal, a drink and the scenic view. Catching a show at Bethel Woods? Save time and money by stopping in for our Bubba's Buffet every weekend and any concert night from Memorial Weekend through Labor Day Weekend!
