Last night, 09/11/19, had dinner at Bubba's. The view is beautiful, particularly near sunset. The service provided by Bailey was very good. She was knowledgeable, attentive and conversant. A lovely young lady with a sparkling personality. That said let's address the food. I ordered broiled flounder...a very generous portion except it was not white sprinkled with a bit of paprika - but grey. I'll go no further. The coleslaw was more than generous in portion and very well prepared. The seafood platter was exceptional for the variety and one of the best my husband has enjoyed. No bread or hush puppies served with the meal. An order of hush puppies consisted of a dozen - way too much for a couple. There was no loud overpowering music so you could carry on a conversation.
All in all we enjoyed our meal and will return.

Friendly service, great atmosphere, great view, food was excellent. Good simple seafood options, a great place to be a local and/or a regular. Some people complain about the prices but they're comparable to most places plus you get the view. We'll be back and bring company when they come to visit.

Ambiance and atmosphere and VIEW: A. Staff, peeps servicing you: A. Kindness and gentility: A. Carey as a bartender: A+ (People can fake it but she was really cool and deserves a raise!). All kidding aside, she's real and she's cool and she wants you to enjoy your visit. You really don't get that everywhere. Steamed crabs: B-. Sorry. I loved the seasoning. Pepper flakes! I'll add them to my next steamer but they were not Jimmies. Two were but a dozen Jimmies will fill me to the brim, normally but I ran through them and was still hungry. HOWEVER, for the price you'd pay for Jimmies in MD (circa $125 vs. the $69 I paid, FAIR VALUE). I'd give the visit a 4.5 if I could but alas...

Tasteless seafood, if you’re big on seasonings I would not recommend this. Only flavor you really get is from the butter. Tried the little Jimmies & the soft shell crab, both were a little pricey for the size of portions. Plain sides, not many too choose from either. Cheesy bread was literally frozen bread with slices of cheese “melted” on top served with jalapeños & marinara sauce
Nice to sit outside with the view but wasn’t ideally what I thought it was going to be.
Waitress was nice/attentive & getting seated didn’t take very long

I came here on a recent trip to Virginia Beach looking for a "dock to table" experience. This place came up in my Google searches.
My starter were the raw oysters. Delicious and definitely fresh. Among the best I've ever had.
I got the soft shell crab as it was in season and a popular local dish.
I did not particularly enjoy this, but it wasn't through any fault of the venue. I wanted to try soft shell crab, but I found it wasn't to my liking.
My sister ordered crabcakes (1 broiled and 1 fried). They were fantastic. My wife ordered the yellow fin tuna which was the featured fish. Again, fantastic. The she crab soup stood out as a great starter.
Service was was warm and friendly. i will definitely return upon my next visit to VB
