Stopped about 2pm for lunch, asked to sit outside and was seated pretty quickly. Waited about 15 minutes before approached by waitress. One ordered water, one ordered soda and she brought two waters and had to be asked to bring soda. We ordered the shrimp salad crossiant which was really good, she brought me ranch dressing for my potatoes and... More

We have been to Tubbys twice in the past few weeks. Both times we had excellent service and the food was very good. We had seafood and chicken fingers. Both were cooked to perfection. On our last visit, Alex the manager, stopped by our table to see if everything was fine. Our waitress, Laureen, provided excellent service.

Was a bit concerned bringing my 10-year-old grandson here on a Friday night 3 weeks ago, but after being seated upstairs as the band was setting up and being taken care of by Marissa, we had a wonderful time! Food was top-notch and wait staff member Marissa was AWESOME! She made us feel like we were her only customers and... More

I have been here twice, and both times there were many problems that covered the food, the service, and the ambiance. Last time I was here I was told they didn't have what I wanted and then was served one of the worst meals I've had in a long time. When I complained to the manager i discovered they ACTUALLY...

We've boated over to Tubbys countless times for drinks or the fresh fish and spuds. The last three times we've gone the oil has been old, and last night our food and service was so awful that we are finally compelled to write about it. We were told we'd wait 15 minutes for a table, but when we checked in... More

We drove over to Savannah from Hilton Head Island for lunch and it was delicious! Well worth the drive. From bacon wrapped scallops to fried shrimp to steamed shrimp - it's all good. Perhaps the best, in my humble opinion, were the hush puppies! Our server, Icey, deserves an A+ for excellent service and answering our many questions.

McKenna is the best waitress in the world. She was very friendly and seemed to care a lot about her job. Will definitely come back and ask for her :)

Ambiance was good...waitress sucked. We sat outside and she ignored us, catered to a group of young men bypassing us. We never got a refill (tea is $2.99)...by the time the food arrived it was cold. The fries had been left out (hard, cold, stale). We told the waitress and she was like, "sorry". The fried shrimp was ok, but... More
