Don't eat there. – I went to Bubba's for lunch with a friend. Our waitress was very nice and came quickly to the table. She asked for our drink order and returned with them quickly. She started off by asking if we would care for an appetizer. We responded with yes, we would like the stuffed mushrooms to start off with. Then for lunch we ordered two side salads, a dozen raw oysters, and a bowl of she crab soup. She then asked if we would like the soup brought out with the oysters. We told her to bring it all out at once but to get the mushrooms to us as quickly as she could. We had been at the beach all day and were very hungry. Well in about 5 minutes our oysters, soup and salads came out and she said that the mushrooms should be out soon. We laughed after she left saying that that throws the hole meaning of appetizer out of the window. We started to eat and my oysters were warm. I mean warm and had many chips of shells in them. The soup was a great temperature. Pretty much the soup was the only enjoyable experience we had. The salads had the taste of dirt to them. Then about 10 minutes went by and we were about done and the mushrooms arrived. There was four on the plate and they were nothing but mushrooms with crab thrown on them and broiled. No butter, salt, pepper, or cheese. Just dried crab on a very soggy and watery mushroom. I will never go there again. I had a bad experience before but love the deck and decided to give it another try. Boy was that a mistake.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Seafood is the specialty at the restaurant with waterfront views, outdoor dining and an informal atmosphere.
Great food, location, beer and people!! – We come to Bubba's often by boat and by car. have never been disappointed.
WORST RESTAURANT ON SHORE DRIVE – On a recent visit, we got 2 very simple meals, "to go." Not only did it take 30 minutes to prepare 2 salads, and one appitizer for pick up on a slow afternoon, but one entree had HAIR it; the other was supposed to be teriyaki style, but was blackend instead. I took the food back to the restaurant to just give the food back and ask for a refund for the food. Not only did they not refund my money but the female owner/manager argued with me and said I was wrong about my accusations ON CHRISTMAS EVE!
I wouldnt go back to Bubba's if you paid me. Congratulations, Bubba's is offically the worst restaurant on Shore Drive.
Simply Fantastic: Best Seafood in Norfolk – After eating lackluster food at the Duck-In, my fiance and I went to Bubba's for seafood, and boy were we pleased! The outdoor dining is absolutely perfect! Service is stellar (ask for Shelby!) and the sheepshead is divine! Moderately priced and incredible food, I couldn't ask for a better experience!!
Very enjoyable – We asked our guide at the old coast guard station, he suggested Bubba's. We sat outside, watched the boats come and go, and the birds fly around. We even had a pelican to watch. The service was great, the food was better than other places we have eaten. I thought the portions a little small, but the taste was very good. The she crab soup was fantastic! Our waitress brought me chowder and I told her I meant to get the she crab, she replaced it super fast, and even removed it from the bill because she felt bad (I'm not 100% sure what I ordered, but she said it was no problem). Not much of a kids menu, but they brought my son 5 large chicken fingers, that was enough for him.
UMMMM! – Best Steamed shrimp and Garlic Cheese Bread ever.....A full meal
Waterman's Delight – A truly great place. Excellent service, wonderful food (and they will modify the menu for you) and one of the most "intimate" water views in hampton roads. Long our favorite.
