My friend and I, who are both in the industry, dined tonight. Everything was fantastic. We felt very safe, and taken care of. We were so caught up in catching up that we didn’t get our servers name. Tall gentleman with curly hair and dansko’s, A+. We were taken care of, not rushed, and everyone on the staff was great about social distancing and being safe. Fantastic variety on the menu as well! We even got an impromptu firework display.

Our server, David, was very attentive and very friendly. The outdoor seating was comfortable and very nice for the circumstances.

Another great meal, even during the quarantine. Service was spot on, professional and friendly, again. Food is nothing but fantastic. A much needed night out. Thanks, Bud and Marilyn!

My husband and I went out for Brunch. The entire experience was absolutely amazing from the food down to the service! The best part is that this is the one restaurant we’ve been to where I didn’t have to make any substitutions to my meal and I could eat it as is! Kudos to the CDC for creating such a comforting menu!

At no fault of their own, the restaurant did the best they can do given the current situation, I did not enjoy this engagement at all. The outdoor seating on the 13th street area was terrible. As we ate, 5 different vagrants approached us asking for food or money, one even said that if we can afford to go out for dinner, we should help them because we were privileged white people. I didn’t even finish my meal just packed it up and took it home.
I feel bad because this establishment and all the others they own ALWAYS do an impeccable job. I even over tipped the waitress to show my support.
I love this restaurant and will continue to go back, I would just add that the outdoor seating areas need to be supervised to protect the patrons.

We had to sit outside due to the pandemic and it wasn’t the best view. The food was ok . Service could have been faster given that we were only one of two parties that were at the restaurant at the time.

Excellent Service from David, loved the Burger and Chicken sandwich but the Meatloaf dinner was flavored not as much too my liking but still good.

I enjoy Bud and Marilyn's, and this was my third time eating there. Although seating is outside, they do their very best to keep it looking clean and serve as quickly as possible. The drink pouches were especially my favorite, and the seafood jambalya always hits the spot.

Great service! They take and stick to their reservations even if the place is full which it usually is, this helps in planning a dinner better. Food is delicious, we just tried the crab fries and cheese curds as it was evening but they were real good. Ambience is great. With the outdoor seating you will have a bit of vehicle noises interrupting but they are far and in between.

Second time coming here. I love the pouch drinks, moira is my fave. Food is good. The only thing we didn’t like was an appetizer and the restaurant was nice enough to take care of it.

2nd time eating here, first time was pre-Covid last winter and we really enjoyed the food. This time we were outside dining. It was a hot day but not unpleasant. Food and service were excellent. I love the vibe here and can’t wait to go back. Chicken sandwich and hush puppies were especially delish.
