Had never been here before, but went with some friends for lunch. The staff was very pleasant and showed us to our table. The deck seemed like it would be great, but was way too hot to be outside. Once inside I was struck by...More

Tubbys hosted an informal banquet for 55 people. Facilities, food, wait staff were excellent. "Buffet style", there was more than enough food and it was hot and delicious.

Tubbys has always been a favorite restaurant of mine but even though there was no grouper on the menu this visit, we consoled ourselves with the best fried scallops we've ever had. The batter was light and crispy, the scallops were tender and cooked to...More

The Fried Shrimp at Tubby's are delicious! I chose the Spuds as my side because they are the same Spuds as Spanky's & taste great. My mom had one of the lunch specials which was a chicken wrap sandwich and she enjoyed it.

Do not know. Not worth it. Many other places that I would want to spend my birthday at free dinner or no free dinner.
