What a fun place to hang out for informal food & drinks while listening to good local bands and with a great view of the Inlet. Inside or out-and also TVs for the game. Just good fun

We live in Myrtle Beach, so the inlet is about a half hour away. We have tried most of the restaurants and we thought we would try Bubba's. First of all you have to order everything at the bar, even the food. They bring the...More

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.
