My husband hurt his foot and couldn't make it to the restaurant so we decided to take out our dinner. The service for take out was quick and easy and the food was excellent. Now I want to go back and eat in!

Visiting during the 4th of July. Wait time was a little over an hour. Food came out hot and fast. BBQ was good. Husband had the seafood platter - it was okay. Nothing spectacular, unfortunately.

Bubba's is great at accommodating your needs. Best to ask the staff about something that important. I totally recommend the crab cakes, large and delish!
