Clam chowder was on point, we had 10 adults and 3 toddlers, the waitress did not even wright our orders down and everything was perfect. Everyone liked their entrees and our bill was only $145.

Bubba's is great at accommodating your needs. Best to ask the staff about something that important. I totally recommend the crab cakes, large and delish!
