The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon to Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, located on Bryan Woods Road.
A Paula Deen restaurant opened in 2004 by the Food Network star and her brother, the eatery’s namesake, Uncle Bubba’s treats diners to savory, Southern-inflected underwater fare served in a down-home atmosphere. Dive into an order of the chargrilled oysters ($7.99 half dozen, $12.99 dozen), or float your boat in the shrimp and grits, a creamy, decadent twist on the Southern standard ($18.99). Lick your fingers or those of a dining companion after finishing Aunt Peggy’s fried catfish platter ($16.99), and then unlock your stomach’s heart with a slice of key lime pie ($5.99). Uncle Bubba’s outdoor deck overlooks Turner's Creek, a serene setting for enjoying the restaurant’s lineup of live music on Fridays and Saturdays.

Uncle Bubba's Oyster House
"First Lady of Southern Cooking" Paula Deen and her brother Bubba grew up in southwest Georgia, where homestyle cooking ruled. When Bubba decided to partner with his sister and open up a seafood restaurant, he knew he wanted it to be a place that reminded him of home—a place with hearty food and a comfortable atmosphere.
At Uncle Bubba's Oyster House, guests can dig into Grannie Paul's oyster stew, chargrilled oysters, seafood buckets, and a slice of homemade key lime pie. Eat inside the restaurant—which looks like a large log cabin set against lush greenery on the coastal marshes—or outside, which is decked out with tables and palm trees. You can also grab a seat at the outdoor tiki bar, sip a sip a "Paulatini" or a "Bubbarita", and hold a conch shell up to your ear until the ocean confesses its secrets.
