We enjoyed a nice dinner at Bud’s The food was excellent, especially the creme brûlée and the crab cakes. They had a nice assortment of handmade cocktails from their bar and I really enjoyed the red sangria. I like the feel of the restaurant as it is fancy enough for a special occasion but also it’s perfect for just a night out with family.

We had a lovely lunch. The dining room was so pretty, but empty, so we sat in the bar. Very nice atmosphere. Good service. Good food. We particularly love the canine greeter, Lilly! She was too sweet. We will be going back.

My only complaint would be the one bartender being overzealous about me not wearing a mask. Even after I explained to him that I cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition. We both enjoyed our meals immensely and will definitely return.

What a wonderful surprise, I thought we might have a decent meal here and instead everything service the ambience, the quality of the food ,the selections on the menu, what a terrific place.

The exterior has your wondering a little bit when you first pull in the parking lot, but once in the door, The welcome ,the cleanliness , the white linen table clothes change your perspective quickly.

Our clams casino and crab dip appetizers were delicious, and the crabcakes and fillet we split to make surf and turf entree we’re excellently prepared, and everything was served piping hot!

We don’t live in the area, so not sure when we’ll be back, but I would drive 20 miles out of my way to have dinner there that’s for sure. Thank you folks

Been wanting to go for a while and it was worth going. Excellent staff, the owner is really nice and the food is basically 4 or 5 star quality without the price. Excellent. Go hungry...and, we happened to go during restaurant week. The portions were not dialed down versions of things normally on the menu but rather menu items in full, 4 courses for 35 bucks. Totally worth it. Thanks!

As always, fantastic! We had the crab clusters, crab soup, mussels, and oyster appetizers.for our main dish we had the Rockfish small.plate.that was perfectly cooked and just the right seasoning. Love Buds and will gladly return anytime. They even parsed the seating to accommodate more distance from table to table and e ething was spotless.

As always, dinner at Bud's was a pleasure. We had our requested corner table and the food was delicious. I had the Elk chop, cooked perfectly, and my husband had the scallops. The wine selections are great and the atmosphere is friendly and homey, yet upscale. Ken came out to greet everyone which is part of Bud's charm - everyone is treated like family. We are planning to go back again tonight!

We had a delightful meal. The only problem were with the ambiance on this particular night. Because it was Valentine's Day, the restaurant was pretty full, and we sat in a place where the chilly breeze from the outside door could reach our legs. More unusual was that the electricity was having difficulty, and so the lights kept dimming and then brightening throughout the meal. Not a big problem, really, but somewhat disconcerting.

Great food, wonderful service. Unfortunately the party next to us had a big bouquet of flowers that included very smelly lilies. The tables are so close the smell was overwhelming. We had made the reservations about a month a head and there were tables in the main dining area, but we were on a porch like room that had a cold blast of air every time the door was open. We come here a few times a year and this is the first time we have had anything but a wonderful time.

First time in your restaurant. Overall had good experience but they were out of so many things we asked for on a Saturday evening prime time- romaine lettuce/ Caesar salad, beets/ beet salad, and another vegetable I can’t recall. Waitress was attentive but had to keep coming back to tell us, “ sorry we’re out of that”. Good flavor of the things we had but wouldn’t go rushing back
