Waited over 45 minutes for a plate of nutchos...soggy & cold. Main meals took over an hour & a half...Cold, small portions and not much taste. Waitress kept apologizing but stated, kitchen staff were getting mad at her for asking when the food would be ready.. My first and LAST visit to this establishment! Would NOT recommend this place....

Bubba Rays opened a second location in Halifax in the home of the former Red Fox Tavern. My husband and I like to go to Bubba Rays a couple of times a year for the cold beer, potato skins and chicken wings. Write ups in the local paper indicated the owner wanted to replicate the atmosphere, food and service from... More

Both me and my wife are big fans of eating burgers during weekends ... usually we head to big chain restaurants such as Jack Astor's and Montana ... as we are living in downtown and have no car ... we struggle in finding a nice burger joint as not lots of places would provide that except for Darrells and Ace...

This is the first time I have been at Bubba Rays in awhile, and I definitely would not return for the food, or at least what I had this particular night was not good. We just had a few appetizers to share and everything was bland, greasy, cold (not even lukewarm just cold), and just plain not good. I was... More

If your into sports, this is the place to go, we ended up going to watch a world cup game there and it was awesome, the amount of TV's was amazing, everywhere you looked you could see the game. The food was very food and all the different wing sauces made it hard to select, wide variety.

Soccer match Brazil vs Germany and a football game broke out 7-1 omg! That's the most goals I've seen in a soccer game. The atmosphere was super and the service very good. Lots of TV screens and sports memorabilia to keep you entertained while you chow down on some fantastic wings and nachos.

This sports bar is deceiving from the outside. But once you walk in, you are amazed at the amount of space and televisions they have! We visited on Wong night, around 7pm and by 8pm it was totally full. Great price for the wings, with 60 flavors to choose from. A jug of draft beer was only 10$.
