There was a concert going on and I put in my notes we would like to be seated on the patio, but wasn’t really expecting to get one because of the event, but they reserved it for us! For an event like this no place has ever reserved a table for us outside. Plus our server was outstanding the food was amazing. Definitely going back soon!

We have been to Bub City a few times and always have a good time. This is a great place for families. The food is great and service is consistently terrific. Father's day with the mini golf was awesome, the kids loved it and the live music was a bonus!

Their whiskey list is so extensive, take an Uber! Their food, the staff and the place was fun, with garage-style rolling doors along one whole wall to open it up to the plaza center. Location and staff was busy, but still attentive and knowledgable about the menu and the spirits.

We were late for our reservation because we got turned around in the parking garage trying to figure out where to go. Upon walking in, the hostess was talking with a coworker saying something along the lines of, “its so rude like if you say you’ll be here at 8, then be here at 8.” ...She was talking about me and my party. When I gave her the name she rolled her eyes and said “I just marked you as a no show since you were so late, but it’s no problem.” Our actual server was nice, but not very attentive to our table. In his defense, he did have a huge party next to us that he was taking care of as well. The food was good and the wait staff was kind, but dealing with such a rude hostess will keep me from ever returning.

This was my first and last visit to Bub City. We were assured the sampler platter would feed 3 people. Not even close, and the food was fair at best. Even the cocktails left a lot to be desired.

We sat at our table watching server after server walk by, without greeting us or acknowledging our presence. After a few minutes I gave my drink order to my girlfriend and went to the bathroom, assuming while I was gone, the server would come by and take a drink order. Well that didn't happen and we decided to leave. I can't imagine a recovery from that bad start, no one at the hostess stand to ask why we were leaving or wish you well on the way out. This is not how I want to be treated anywhere I eat. Management definitely needs an overhaul.

Very loud energetic fun place that is surprisingly well priced for the area (it’s close to Gibsons). Food is great, my people love the ribs and brisket, but this is my 3rd time and it’s mac and cheese and fried chix for me - and I might be considered a connoisseur of both by now!

Breakfast scrambled eggs and avocado tacos were really good. Tortillas are home made and it's a hearty portion. White sangria is tasty. The country live music wasn't very good, but the food was. Fried chicken and their biscuits were really good. People dress casual. It's very country themed. Food is worth trying for sure.

celebrated my sisters birthday - big group with 3 kids and 8 adults. 2 kid meals were brought out and didn’t bring the 3rd kid meal until we asked for it. rest of the entrees came and they didn’t bring out my brothers meal. until we finally got a hold of someone they went to get it and came back and said they were out. so they said for him to pick something else while we all ate. by the time we got a hold of the waiter again, he says hold on and comes back with his original order. my question is why say they were out and then come up with some? where did it come from? ridiculous is what it is. not a very good experience. it was taken off the bill but still, who does that? when we got the bill and they gave back our cards, they didn’t give the check we sign or add tip? we had to wait again... to find a waiter to ask for the receipt.

Glad we made a reservation. Busy night, especially with a bat mitzvah going on next door at Joe’s. Our waitress was fantastic (I’m bummed I don’t remember her name.) She apologized for the slow service due to the kitchen working the special event as well apparently. But geez the noise bleed - the “ambience” was a mix of country music and the pounding bass of the event. Food was good tho pricey for the special rib tips, I thought. Family enjoyed overall.

Great sports bar type restaurant very open with lots of tables. We ordered the full rack of ribs and nachos with chicken, so delicious! Loved the smoky rub on the ribs!! Two women noched away at the nachos, but we barely put a dent in it. The nachos serving size is enough for 4 people to share.

Ribs over cooked.

Music was obnoxiously loud. There is a big difference between energetic and punishing volume.

Chef needs to take a trip over to Green St Meats.

I know will.

I would not recommend during any holiday. We’ve eaten at Bub City lots of times and have our favorites (fried chicken sandwich & ribs). We were a party of 5 for Mother’s Day 4:30 reservation and ordered 3 chicken sandwiches, an order of ribs and the salmon dinner. 4 out of the 5 dinners were over cooked and 2 of those were not eatable and sent back. The 2 newly prepared plates came out well after the other 3 were finished eating which only added to the very disappointing dining experience. The only good thing was our waitress was friendly and attentive. We can’t help but wonder, is there no quality control when dishes are prepared, for someone to look at the food to make sure it represents the quality food you want for Bub City. It was very obvious these dishes were over cooked and was borderline petrified chicken & ribs.

We went for Mother’s Day and I have to say, our server was the nicest I have had in ages anywhere. She kept up on us and was very personable. I unfortunately failed to remember her name, may have been the Bloody Mary and mimosa dog that took affect. The brisket was to die for, I highly recommend it. Fries pickles were done right as well. I will be returning.

Went for Mother’s Day, with three little children, it was the perfect place to let them be kids and not bother other guests. Loud enough to let the kids be loud and still able to carry conversation. Food was excellent and the staff for great.

Bub City was a wonderful experience. we celebrated my son's 25th birthday. The waitress was wonderful, she cut the cake for us and and was very gracious. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice the only bad thing was the parking situation. It was hard to find parking. But otherwise everything was great!
