Atmosphere was amazing. Good seafood restaurant with yummy drinks & friendly employees!! Handicap accessible by way of a lift that was great for my husband. Other restaurants in the area are not as welcoming to people who are handicapped!

We went here based on the reviews and am disappointed. I am sitting here in the restaurant waiting on the check writing the review and wondering how others loved this place for the seafood? We had a drink at the bar. Cranberry vodka ($6) and bottle of sams ($4). The bartender was super quick and extremely nice. 5 stars. Seated... More

Three of us ordered the fried flounder platter and none of us could eat it. It was the worst fish I have ever had. I had fried flounder a few days prior from another restaurant and it didn't compare. My daughter ordered the fried shrimp which I tried and was good and so was the hush puppies and coleslaw. But... More

We took a chance on this place even considering it was a 30 minute drive for us. We did so based on the reviews but I certainly didn't understand the hype when we arrived. The atmosphere is fun and our server was friendly but that's really all of the positive things I can say. If you travel with children that... More

Walked from our hotel to here. Very casual. Hillary was very nice wait staff! The fried green tomatoes were a little greasy. The shrimp basket was good/fresh.

Good food! Entertaining servers! We were asked trivia questions about the movie, Forrest Gump. Our prize was free napkins and ice water. Overall a great experience. Would definitely recommend!!

This was our first time eating at Bubba's and our server Danielle was awesome. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped my family decide on what we wanted to eat. She was also polite and had a lot of patience. We will definitely be dining at Bubba's during our next vacation.

Waiter very friendly and let us know that they have mostly fried foods . I had the crab cake sandwich . I am hard on reviewing because I realize every place I go that New Orleans is the best seasoned over all. I love that the restaurant looks full of history.

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.
