Went on Friday night at 7, waited an hour for our food, half of the dinners were ice cold and congealed. Waitress's reaction to our complaints was "ummmmm" so we asked for the Manager. The Manager took these meals off the bill, but two people in our party got violently ill from the food at this vomitorium.
DO NOT WAST YOUR MONEY HERE!
The meals were overpriced. The food was unappetizing and frozen. The service was untrained and inept.
The people rating this restaurant Excellent or Above Average have no clue what good seafood is. Ask any local and you will not hear anything positive about this place. They survive on ripping off the unsuspecting Tourist.
We were expecting a really great experience and being a fan of Paula Deen (Food Channel) we had very high expectations of our dinner. What a complete disappointment. Of all of the fine dinning establishments to eat in Savannah we wasted an evening on this inept, sordid place. I have had better seafood at Captain Ds! Please, don't waste you time or money going to Uncle Bubbas’. There are a lot of places in Savannah to get really wonderful seafood.
Great food – I thoroughly enjoyed this resturant. I ate fried oysters and corn on the cob. Service was great too. Keisha was a great waitress even for a party of 10.
Best Food and Service...HUH? – Well obviously "staciagrizzle" (A) has never been anywhere (B) works for Uncle Bubba or has family that does (C) uses drugs heavily. Vacationing at Tybee? Well that says it all. What a ridiculous review. Uncle Bubba's is just OK AT BEST! And just like every other Restaurant in Savannah they are nothing but tourists traps and price gougers. We are locals and we don't eat in Savannah anymore. If you want great food at reasonable prices head over to Hilton Head. Here is another tip if you want good food go to Lady and Sons (Paula Deens) if you want Great food go to Mrs Wilkes!
BEST FOOD AND SERVICE!!!!! OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT ! – WHEN I STARTED READING THE 1ST FEW REVIEWS I WAS SHOCKED! THIS IS OUR FAMILIES FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT WHEN WE GO TO TYBEE ISLAND! WE PUT MONEY UP JUST TO GO TO BUBBA'S EVERY VACATION! THE FOOD IS WONDERFUL! TO DIE FOR! WE HAVE ALWAYS BRAGGED ABOUT HOW GREAT OUR SERVICE IS EVERY TIME WE GO. THERE ARE PEOPLE CHECKING ON US AND FILLING OUR DRINKS CONSTANTLY! THE ATMOSPHERE IS WONDERFUL, WE LOVE TO EAT OUTSIDE BY THE WATER. THE SEAFOOD IS THE BEST...EVERYTHING IS WORTH THE PRICE!!!!!
Horrible Food and Worse Service – This restaurant is a joke. The only reason people go there is because Paula Deens name is involved. Her brother "Uncle Bubba" think's he is famous, when in reality he is just riding his sister's coat tail's. The restaurant is run as cheap and inefficient as possible. The menu say's "fresh" seafood, but It is all frozen and was probably caught 2 month's ago. It cost's 25.00 for a frozen crab stuffed flounder?????? They do not support local Georgia shrimping industry because it is cheaper to buy frozen shrimp. The kitchen is run by low paid worker's who could care less if you get sick or not. The cooler's are usually broken so the shrimp temp's out around 70 degrees which bacteria thrive in between 41°F and 140°F.....
All of the seafood is thawed out in a sink and is not taken care of for hour's after it is completely thawed out. All in all this business cares about on thing MONEY. They don't care if you or your children get sick from eating a contaminated product. I wouldn't even trust feeding this food to my dog. I highly recommend NOT going to this restaurant if you are in the Savannah area. Just remember that just because this place is run by a "famous chef" does not mean that you will get a decent meal!
they do believe in bread – where ever uncle bubba got his rescipe for gumbo he needs to give it back and his chicken that is advertised as Paula's chicken tast nothing like the chicken at the Lady & Sons Restaurant that i had the night before, I wont be back.
Dissapointed – My friends and I were visiting Savannah and were looking forward to eating at Bubba's restaurant. Our waitress was abrubt and seemed inpatient. We ordered baked potatoes and lima beans. Neither one was served with our meal. No refills were offered and our waitress didn't once come to the table to see if we needed anything. To top it off dessert wasn't offered but the bill came promply. To say our group left feeling dissapointed is an understatement. Would I go again NO . Would I recommend them to friends. NO. We left a tip because we realize that it's not only the waitress that profits and personally I feel she was the one at fault. It would be in your best interest to inform your staff that manners and certain procedures should be their unmost priority. Del and Rosina Ward
Average service and over priced – If you are the health inclined, Uncle Bubba's is note for you. Additionally, the prices are high and the service is slow. For instance, $1.99 gets you 1/2 an ear of overcooked corn as a side. Corn muffins served with meal were oily. It took a long time for our meal to arrive and server seemed disengaged.
Bad Service – Yesterday (06-07) evening we eagerly detoured on our drive from North Carolina to Florida to stop at Uncle Bubba's. We had previously had a delicious meals at both Lady & Sons and Uncle Bubba's and we looked forward to more of the same on this trip. My wife ordered the shrimp and grits and requested no bacon or peppers. I ordered a combination seafood dish with Lima beans (my favorite) on the side. When we were served I was given black eyed peas with no explanation. I pointed this out and while the peas were initially taken away the server quickly came back and stated that they were out of Lima beans. I accepted the peas. However, my wife's dish was also wrong as she still had peppers (at first glance). She game fully accepted the error and began eating until she noticed that she also still had bacon as part of her dish. As she does not eat pork, this became an issue. She pointed out the error to our server who stated that she had "forgotten to place the order correctly" with the cook. She apologized and took the plate so as to place the correct order. The replacement plate took so long that when it arrived we asked to take it to go. As the two errors had tarnished our image of Uncle Bubba's and as our meal had been disrupted I took the opportunity to mention it to our server. I rarely complain (much less write comments) but felt the matter needed attention. She stated she would discuss it with the manager. When she returned she offered us dessert as compensation. I replied that an om mission error such as with the pork and peppers could have caused an allergic reaction to an unsuspecting diner and that their offer for a "free dessert" was insufficient response. We declined and paid our bill. By this time was wife (having come from a line of chefs) felt she needed to speak to the manager. When she did so his response was "Thank You for the feedback"and no more. We are both EXTREMELY disappointed in our dining experience and will not only NOT return, but will share the story as well.

This is my version:
We dined @ your establishment last evening (6/7/09) at approx 2030. The service was very disappointing. The waitress did not adhere to my request that I did not want any bacon or green peppers with your famous Shrimp Grits dinner. The dish came with the green peppers & bacon anyway (I don't eat PORK!). She said that she forgot to tell the cook not to add the bacon & green peppers and that she would take the dish back . She did & it took about 15-20 min to get the corrected dish back. By then I already started to eat some of my husband's meal which was the Combo Duo ate his fried catfish It was very good. He had the fried shrimp. The waitress kept coming back & apologizing for the wait and her mistake (about 4x)
. We had to keep telling servers to refill our tea glasses ( the place was not that busy with maybe 2 toppers). It was late closing time & I had lost my appetite & was disgusted about the pork, & since I had to wait for my meal! When the waitress came back to tell us again that my dish would be out in a few more minutes I told her to put it to go. Because, it was getting late & we were heading out for a long drive to FL. I asked speak to the manager & a young man came out (he did not identify himself) I told him how disappointed I was with the service I got! He just said that he would let management know. This is the 2nd time I have been to your Establishment I like it better than your sister's Lady's & Son's because of less crowds & I like seafood better than home-cooking. Though I did eat @ her establishment it was excellent but I was swollen from all that salt intake! When we drive through Savannah I prefer to eat @ Uncle Bubba's we don't have to wait on line to get a reservation & wait to be seated even though we do have a reservation ha, ha ha....
I guess that comes with you Paula in having a Famous Establishment & Good Country Cooking!
