We eat here every couple of weeks while in the area for the winter. Bubba's has the best catfish. The lunch basket special is good value for money.

Hi there, We are handicap accessible through our elevator. Please see the hostess first or place a call to the restaurant to ask a waitstaff member to send it down.
