The nicest parts of going to Bubba's were the wait staff and the view of white lake! The young workers were very attentive and fast! The lake view was breathtaking. The food was average. The flies were numerous around the buffet trays.

We appreciate and value your opinion. I must apologize that the food did not meet your expectations and the flies were bothersome. I am happy to hear that my staff was attentive and fast :) I truly hope that you will give us another try so we can have the opportunity to change your mind.

Went to Bubba's BBQ on Father's Day 2016. Sat outside on the deck overlooking beautiful White Lake. Not only was the server attentive, the hostess stopped several times at our table to see if all was well. We had a party of 7, so the gratuity of 18% was built in (is for parties of 6 or more). But service was well worth it. The food was very good and there is not better atmosphere in the summer than eating while watching boats and jet skis go by on White Lake. Worth a stop if you like BBQ and if you don't they have enough menu items that are not BBQ to satisfy your appetite.

I've visited Bubba's BBQ with a friend either for lunch or dinner 3 or 4 times since they reopened for the 2016 summer season. Bubba's has a new and improved menu for 2016 and it's a winner!

Bubba's offers a variety of meals that feature great BBQ, but they serve a lot more than that. They have a great selection of tasty appetizers and sides. My friend is crazy about their chicken wings appetizer and pulled chicken dishes. She said she's dreamed about their pulled chicken. I've ordered the BBQ roasted chicken, the ribs and their signature burger. The BBQ chicken had crispy skin and was very moist and tender. The ribs were tender and just plain perfect. They also have some options for vegetarians, such as cheese quesadillas and veggie burgers. The available side dishes include an awesome corn pudding and crispy sweet potato fries. If you have room after your meal, it's worth checking out their desserts.

Bubba's BBQ sauce, which I am told is home-made, is worthy of special mention. It's smoky and, unlike many BBQ sauces, was not too sweet. It's worth slathering on all your BBQ.

The hostess and waitstaff are all very nice -- friendly, informal and they keep a watchful eye out to get you anything you need. The restaurant is lakefront, and you can sit outdoors by the lake or get a great view of the lake from inside the restaurant.

Bubba's also offers a buffet that hasn't yet opened for the summer. That's something else to look forward to.

We saw the Bubba's sign the year before and vowed we'd stop in on our next trip to Bethel Woods. Well...The view was beautiful and the staff wonderful. That's where it ended. I had a dried out BBQ half chicken. My husband had pulled pork that should have been called PUSHED pork. Needless to say, we both spent the next day visiting the throne and not feeling like royality!!! PASS on this one!!!!

I noticed you had this experience back in September 2015. I'm disappointed that you had this experience and I would like the opportunity to invite you back this 2016 season to give us another try. We have a new kitchen manager who has a passion for bbq food and many years of experience. Feedback (whether good or bad) is a learning tool and we take each and every one seriously. Thank you for yours and I hope that you will give us another try.
