If you get to meet Bubba, you're in for a treat. This place has everything you'd expect at a water front bar. Good cold beer, good oysters (That's what Bubba is known for) and good friendly atmosphere.

The atmosphere was eclectic and laid back. Live music, friendly people and palm trees; what more could you ask For? I had a great time.

Bubba's has a fun atmosphere. Food is okay; not bad just nothing special. We go back because we enjoy the location and music.

We came to listen to music, dance and eat a little with a drink. Fish bites were really good. Live band was quite good with a variety of songs from the 80’s, 90’s and today. The mixed drinks were very good. Wait staff was understated...More

Flatbread was very good but clams were way too salty and buttery. I would go again because the view is spectacular and it's a very relaxing atmosphere.

I ordered the crab cake. I wasn't a fan, the flavor was good however it was very greasy. My mother had the seafood soup, she didn't like it. I've had worse but I doubt we will be back.

If you're looking for a classic Waterfront fun place to eat this is the place for you. You overlooked Goat Island and the marsh walk. Beautiful Breeze and great atmosphere. Great selection of food and plenty of it for the price

We have been here a few times for drinks watching the people on the marsh walk from the rocking chairs facing the inlet having a few drinks and listening to the tunes. We watched the Eclipse from here with my family and Dog. Dog friendly...More

We decided to give Bubba's Love Shak a try while walking along the marsh walk about 3:00 pm, since quite a few people were there. They have a very unusual service system. A sign states "order food at bar", and another sign states "order here",...More

Bubba's is a bar/restaurant - very relaxed setting. But they own a nice restaurant right next door - if you don't like the bar type setting.
