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
I always talk about Bub City to my friends, so they wanted to experience it. The food was great as always and the band was awesome!! Will be back!
Great atmosphere and BBQ in the heart of the city!
Lots of delicious BBQ items including pulled pork sandwiches and "Bird on a bun"
The portions were small but tasty, Small portions being kind of odd for a BBQ joint. Amazing Bourbon selection for those that love to indulge, Service was so - so. Get the buffalo tots fantastic.
The staff was amazing seating and serving our party of 30 (1/2 of them being noisy, excited cheerleaders after a huge win!) - would highly recommend! And the food was delicious - I recommend the BBQ nachos!
Delicious food, fun atmospere, friendly staff.
I definitely recommend this place.
Awesome food and atmosphere. I will be returning soon.
Amazing! So, pleasantly surprised...heard it was good but it was great!! I loved that my children were welcomed since we went earlier!
Went to be entertained while having a layer back meal! Was great
Good food, seats in a high traffic area, drinks are priced a bit high
Went to celebrate a birthday. Waitress was distracted and unattentive. My son had bad indigestion several hours after his meal. Valet scratched my car. Memorable occasion for the wrong reasons.
Food was okay. Service was amateurish. Ordered entrees missing and server was pretty inept.
Always a great choice. We were meeting friends pre concert. Food was great. Casual fun atmosphere and still able to hold a conversation. Excellent service. It was our friend’s first time there and they are new fans now as well. Keep it up!
I would totally recommend Bub City. The sampler platter was worth the money. Great service and great food. Don't hesitate to try anything, and ask to take some of these beans home.
Great night! Food, music, drinks, fun!
Fun casual ambience,
Good menu and good value. One piece of feedback is that the women’s bathroom was filthy with trash everywhere built up from the day
Server was very accommodating to our group and hostess was very nice to help me with the reservation (I had to change it several times.) Had a good time!
I went for my 34th bday and had a blast!!! Ozzie was our server and def took care of us. The chef made a special request for my bday candle cake which was a Mac n cheese portion. I was extremely happy 😁 Thank you for the memories and fun!!
Great bbq and live music. Felt like a true southern bar. Fantastic, would go again!
I was there for lunch this time. Excellent service and a great selection on their lunch menu (the "Meat and Three" menu). Maybe around 8 options for the meat (excellent burger, great pulled pork sandwich). I also saw a vegetarian option. And maybe 15-20 sides to choose from, from BBQ standards to salads. All we had was very good, as was the service.
