We came here for lunch after a long drive from Philadelphia area. We wanted to try something different so we stopped here. The area leading to the restaurant was pretty ugly - lots of construction and high rises condos. But once you get to the...More

Traveling in the area we were unfamiliar with restaurants in the Virginia Beach area. After exploring sites on TripAdvisor and checking out their websites we decided on trying Bubba's Seafood Restaurant and Crabhouse. We shared a she crab soup for starters and it was delicious....More

We were worn out after a long drive into town and found Bubba's just down the street from our rental home. We are so glad we stopped in! My husband and daughter had jumbo raw oysters and said they were fabulous! They were so fresh...More

The food was good, great location though I think in summer it might be a mosquito hotspot. We had the coleslaw, which was delicious! The burger with crabmeat was definitely a great choice. Go here around sunset for a romantic atmosphere.

I thought this place would be really good being by the docks. Not impressed. The only thing I truly enjoyed was the she crab soup. Everything else wasn't worth the price at all!

On the marina. Outside dining. Adequate parking. Best oysters in Virginia Beach. They are very big. Got to sit and watch the boats go by. Very good food. Not terribly expensive. It is worth the drive from the beach. Very helpful staff.

The food is fabulous, especially the fresh catches! I've never had the crab cakes there, but I'm from Maryland where they make the best crab cakes in the country, so I've learned not to order them out of state. The service, atmosphere, and view are...More
