Bub City was great! My daughter has a dairy allergy and they were careful that no cross-contamination occurred and we were able to enjoy some great food! Both the manager and server paid attention to detail.
Awesome Bloody Mary Bar with lots of fresh options! Food was great, portion size is definitely sharable. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff.
Atmosphere was great, food was delicious, and service was top notch! Absolutely would recommend!
We were here for a Congress and had dinner. Good food and service and super ambiance during the karaoke. I highly recommend it.
Great bears brunch
Great spot! If you like southern food and beer, this is the place to go. The biscuits are huge!
I love it. It's my second time going and I will be back
Great BBQ, definitely get the brisket and the back porch iced tea! It was a warm fall night and we got one of the booths by the window which is perfect for getting outside air, a bit of inside AC and music, and great views. Had 2 kids (2 and under 2months) and the dinner was smooth with them in tow. Liked our server a lot, he knew to fill the toddler cup halfway! Best of all, lettuce entertain you points!
Say is by the speakers blasting country music making it difficult to have conversations - Mac and cheese was watery ribs and fried chicken very good
Bub City always features pretty incredible musical talent. Even if you're not a huge country fan, it is worth a visit. The atmosphere is fun and inviting. While it can often be crowded, you can make a reservation to secure seating. I'm also not a huge fan of the food - just a personal preference - but it is a great spot for beer/cocktails and live music.
It was a great night and amazing service. Ashley our server was great most of the night. I am not sure if someone in my party upset her but after she gave everyone's card back after the bill was split her energy shifted as if she was upset. Other than that extremely small thing we had an amazing time and will surely be coming back.
Good vibe, nice service - highly recommend the brussels sprouts. Live music can make bar get crowded but great for dinner on the early side.
We were glad to get reservations at Bub City before Saturday night theater at the Oriental Theater. Valet parking made it super easy for us to dine and retrieve our car to get to the theater. Atmosphere was fun and great people watching as the doors were open to the sidewalk and street scene. Service was friendly and teamwork was efficient. After our meals were served it seemed as though our server was less available to the floor. Not sure why but we ended up having to ask for our check. Aside from that little quirk we were pleased with the other aspects of Bub City.
We loved the food and live music. The energy was great and both bands were great.
Music was great. Party of 2 without reservations were seated before our party of 2 with. Pork sandwich had a lot of fat that I couldn’t chew and cheese on the nachos tasted like powder cheese. Drinks were good and priced well. Service from waitresses was great.
Enjoyable. Simple. Will continue to frequent. Consistent. Big fan!
No está mal Música country El problema es que cuando llegamos a cenar ya no ofrecían el menú completo, tan solo el de bar, con poca variedad
Service was not very attentive.
Good food, but the service a little slow.
Will come back again.
Osgood and Adam were so amazing. FOR SURE coming back to see their beautiful faces. I can't decide what was better - the buffalo bites or the Boyz.
Good food, terrible service.
Lately the food here comes out Luke warm.
Perfect place to take a date. He live music was fun, but we could still have a conversation
Food and vibes are great, but the last two times I've gone the service has been terrible. The first time they forgot about my appetizer and brought it out after my meal which took longer than usual, especially for lunch. The second time we watched our server hangout at the bar as we continuously tried to get her attention before having to get up and get her to come back to the table. Otherwise, great scene at night...
Live guitarist/singer was great! Brunch food was alright, it is definitely not geared towards sober us, but rather groups wanting to drink at brunch.
So delicious I could eat here every weekend!
Bub City is always excellent! The chicken is killer and those fried brussel sprouts...FAB!!
Love this place AND country music!
Everything was delicious! Chicken and waffles bomb!
Food was great! Superb whiskey selection. Service was good enough.
Love the atmosphere. Always a great experience.
Bub city was very accommodating to my growing group of friends who gathered to celebrate my birthday.
Food was average, but reasonably priced so I was okay with that. one thing I really did not like about the food, was how quickly it came out after we ordered. We ordered, and 5 minutes later the food was at our table. Too quick.
Drinks were great, and so was the wait staff. The atmosphere of the restaurant was fun, and energetic too! I will go back, but will ask for my food not to be rushed out next time.
The waitress wasn’t exactly kind. She snapped at me when I asked for a chair. I did not hear her say yes cause it was so loud in there so she said I told you I would get it
Also we asked for two bills and she couldn’t seem to get it right
Great food. Good drinks. Decent pricing. Will definitely be back!
Great country restaurant right in the middle of the city. Food is always good and the staff is very friendly.
The team was great. Service was top notch. I was there during a very busy concert and I always had a fresh beer. Highly recommend
Tuesday night live karaoke is incredible! So much fun to watch
We had a very good experience at Bub City. The food was great, and the waitress and staff were attentive. I would recommend!
Wonderful food and maybe best ribs ever. Great selection of beer and bourbon. Well priced. Great interior and friendly staff. Worth a visit or two. We will return.
Great for a crowd, fun, and great value for the prices
