Waiter was nice, but the food was a bit slow coming out. Seems like they have a hard time keeping up when it's "busy". Food was pretty good.

You can expect friendly service and good quality food at this often very busy, informal eatery. The fish sandwich accompanied by tasty fries was a winner as was the special of the day, a turkey wrap with garlic aioli. Bubba's is frequented by locals and visitors to the scenic Lake Sunapee area. It does not disappoint!

Food was wonderful and service very good. Our group of five all had really excellent dinners and desserts. One tip - clear dirty dishes off before dessert is ordered.

WE has the chef's special that night and it was just as good as we have had in Italy. The place is an informal pub style restaurant, but the cuisine that night was gourmet Italian

A local restaurant with okay food. Good for social gathering. Pleasnt staff & good service. Don't expect the culinary experience of your life, but for locals, many gather for social time. Their fish & seafood dishes are their best.

Good variety on the menu and good number of specials. If you get a seat near the window, there is a great view of the lake.

How did I miss this place before? Hands down the best beer and chowder and most interesting people to talk to in this area. Directly across from the lake, five minutes to the ski area. They have an eclectic menu ranging from pizza to seafood to specials like Cuban sandwich, risotto loaded with local ingredients. Great place to dine with... More

Bubba's is a great place for bar food. The staff is friendly and efficient. My family and I have been there many times and appreciate the consistency . We never have to worry about getting served garbage, which by the way can happen at the new place down the road, Suna. We'll stick with reliable Bubba's
