Was here twice in March 2017. The place has been very busy both times.....It's a nice, open restaurant, with huge "garage door" windows that are opened up to bay views when the weather is nice. You are right on the bay, with good views and a little sandy area outside. Service both times was very efficient and friendly; things arrived... More

This place has a great view and killer hush puppies, but the rest of he Food was so so and not terrific service. The view is terrific on a pretty day though!

Seaside views, clear garage doors line one side of the restaurant to see the ocean. There's an outdoor sand beach lot for kids to play in. The decor is half maritime half hunting lodge (very odd) but the atmosphere is fun, the place is clean, the food is cheap eats, and the service is fast and friendly.

This is the second time we've been to Bubba's and it's just as good each time. The food is really good, especially the shrimp po-boys. It's a casual, fun atmosphere right on the water. The servers and manager were helpful and nice.

Best fried "real" fresh caught gulf shrimp in Texas, no question about it! All the negative reviews are bogus and should not be paid attention to at all... They are either on drugs or just plain haters... Elizabeth, my bartender, every Monday night, is the sweetest bartender I've ever had the pleasure of being served by... She's an angel and... More

Waiter did not bring the standard hush puppies and chips with the meal. We didn't realize it until our meal was finished. We mentioned them and he grudgingly brought us hush puppies only. He also did not refill my husbands tea which sat empty for 10 mins til my husband finally had to ask him to refill it. He did... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat seafood in my home area. In the past, we have always received excellent service and the food is, of course, to die for. I've always rated it 5 stars. I'm sad to report that this time was different. When I got there, they told me it would be a 30-45 minute... More

On a rainy Saturday afternoon we found ourselves hungry at Galveston Bay. We have been to Bubba's before, they have really upped their game. I had the fried shrimp and salad bar. Both were fantastic. Husband had the shrimp and sausage boil. Also great. The shrimp sized were perfection. Large but not so big they were tough. We packed up... More

We had the all you can eat shrimp. It was much better than I had hoped. Very fresh and tender. The view watching the ships was fun for our group. We also liked the bread pudding. A great place.
