We visit this area several times a year and Bubba's has been on our list of restaurants that we always visit for years. Unfortunately it seems that the Marsh Walk in general is much more geared for drinking instead of eating now, and that must...More

The menu is on the short side but if you're looking for a place to grab a quick lunch, have a cold drink and overlook the beautiful marsh (and Goat Island), this is a great option!

We have already booked our room (Royal Suite), how do I get the upgrade to the VIP package that everyone is referring to? Do I do it at the hotel at check in? And does anyone know the cost of that? Thanks!

Bubba's is a bar/restaurant - very relaxed setting. But they own a nice restaurant right next door - if you don't like the bar type setting.
