Bubba’s Fish Shack is well known for its delicious down-home-style seafood.  We pride ourselves on serving excellent southern fried seafood how it’s meant to be.  With summer in full swing along the Grand Strand and visitors joining us from all over, now is a great time to share some of our guest’s favorite menu items.  Follow along as we share our top-ordered options.

First up is our First Mate’s Platter.  This fried feast allows guests to choose two favorite seafood options and pair them with fries, cole slaw, and our homemade hushpuppies.  Guests can choose two items from this list: Flounder, Catfish, Mahi, Fried Oysters, Fried Scallops, Gulf Shrimp, Grouper, and Popcorn Shrimp.  This platter indeed proves that there is something for everyone at Bubba’s Fish Shack.

Next up is the Shrimp Basket.  A menu staple for seafood restaurants around the country, Fried Shrimp is more than just a little ball on a plate.  It is a bite of delicious wrapped in a golden brown edible wrapper waiting to be enjoyed.  Served in a basket and paired with our tasty fries, you can’t go wrong with this option.  If you are curious to know more about fried shrimp, check out this blog: https://bubbasfishshack.com/2020/12/31/fried-shrimp/

The next option should come as no surprise.  Our Pickle Nickels are the stuff of dreams.  An absolute favorite of Bubba’s Fish Shack guests, Pickle Nickels garner smiles, happy palates, and social media attention quicker than anything else on our menu.  We agree!  The tangy pickles dipped in batter and fried till crispy that make you want to say “Yum” are just spectacular!  Read more about our delicious Pickle Nickels here: https://bubbasfishshack.com/2021/10/31/pickle-nickels/

Our Captain’s Platter is the next item, an option that should not be taken lightly.  It is like the First Mate’s Platter, only BIGGER, MUCH BIGGER.  The Captains Platter features the same list of items to choose from and is paired with the same fantastic fries, slaw, and our homemade hushpuppies, but you choose four items from the list of Flounder, Catfish, Mahi, Fried Oysters, Fried Scallops, Gulf Shrimp, Grouper, and Popcorn Shrimp.  If you plan to order the Captain’s Platter, you better bring your appetite.

To round out the Top 5, we finish on the Flounder Basket.  From a nutritional standpoint, flounder are nutrient-rich fish with 24 grams of high-quality protein per 200 grams of a cooked serving.  Flounder can be a primary source of amino acids and contains a full range of essential acids.  Flounder is also one of the lowest fatty fish consumed in the United States, featuring only 5 grams of fat and 1.2 grams of saturated fats per 200-gram serving.  It contains less than 200 calories per serving, making it an excellent offering for those on a diet.  For even more information on flounder, check out this blog: https://bubbasfishshack.com/2022/03/15/flounder/.  The Flounder Basket is served with a perfect portion of our fantastic fries, and we recommend an ice-cold sweet tea to go with it!

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention a couple of honorable mentions to our Top 5 Guest Favorites.  Our guests love our hushpuppies so much that sometimes, the ones that are served with your meal are just not enough to satisfy the table.  Our guests remedy that by ordering Bubba’s Homemade Hushpuppies from our Shack Snacks menu.  Available to order as a basket of 3 or 10, this basket will help satisfy the whole table.

The other honorable mention is our Catfish Basket.  We have written extensively about our catfish, and our guests rave about it in reviews almost daily.  You need to try the catfish.  You can find more info on catfish here: https://bubbasfishshack.com/2020/08/25/august-is-national-catfish-month/

We are not surprised by any of these top guest choices.  We love them just as much as our guests do.  Delicious food attacks people.  Bubba’s Fish Shack has delicious food, and we can’t wait to serve some to you!  Come see us today and taste excellent southern fried seafood served the way it is meant to be!
