This is busy neighborhood type restaurant. The clam basket was fine for dinner. The dining room is on the second floor but there is an elevator if needed. You receive a discount when you show your room card from the hotel across the road.

Stopped in for a later dinner and was very happy with our choice. Had good service and great food. The boys loved the hush puppies and the coloring paper was nice to keep them busy.

This is a good place but you need to like fried food as 90% of the seafood is fried. There was a blackened grouper and that was a great selection to a entrée that was not fried. Good place to eat with a friendly staff.

We ate here for dinner and my overall opinion is that it was just average. The food was nothing to brag about. Just your typical deep fried fish.

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!
