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.

What a fantastic find! And the owner came out after dinner for the complete background of the restaurant/building, how interesting. The food was delicious and unique. We will definitely return and bring some new friends with us!

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

Food was exquisite! Table was ready upon arrival on New Year’s Eve. Hostess and waitress were extremely friendly and helpful in decision making. The broth for the mussels was simply outstanding; we even requested more bread to completely enjoy the multiple flavors!

From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed! Everyone we encountered was genuinely friendly & caring. The food was very good & reasonably priced. We were a party of 3 girlfriends on New Years Eve & had a lot of laughs with many of the folks serving us. Our 1st visit will definitely not be our last. We’ll be back!! HNY!

We had some hiccups with an appetizer and an entree, but the staff was super attentive and corrected the issues as quickly as possible.
Elk chop and veal chop were superb!
Nice wine list and good beer list too.
Staff and owners were amazing. Owners talked with us, and the other diners too, for at least 10 minutes. Not the "we hope you come back" talk, but real conversation and interest in us as people not just customers. Really enjoyed and respected this - this is the first time this has happened in a LONG time from any restaurant.

Really the food tasted very good, and was plated with care..just wasnt enough of it for the money. I dont mind spending- but when i do i better get a decent portion- 90 bucks later 2 people should dinner table satisfied in my opinion. The management was attentive, though waitress- though nice seemed a lil over stretched? The high rent ambiance really didnt add anything extra for this average joe. A bit fancier than our usual spots- Bud's is a nice, small cozy, dinner date kind of place. Guess Its just not my kinda place.

My wife and I met another couple, good friends, and had a very enjoyable meal at Bud's. My wife and I each had the elk chop, which was delicious and not at all gamy, as venison can be. Our friends had rockfish and salmon and enjoyed their meals, too. We all agreed Bud's would be a great place for us to meet up again.

The food was excellent! We have never had anything that we haven't enjoyed.

The restaurant was not busy that evening. The server provided good table service but she made several comments regarding the slow reservations that evening. On football Friday, when school has just begun, that's not uncommon. The server didn't use good judgment when sharing her thoughts, which I believe is due to inexperience. She needs to focus on being a server, not trying to be a confidant with the restaurant's clientele.

It will not stop me from coming back to Bud's- the owners are friendly, the environment is relaxed, and the food is always excellent.

It is a lovely restaurant. Food is always well prepared and good. Dining room is very nice.
Very few diners when we have gone, but hopefully it still does a good enough business to continue another 10 years.

The crab risotto w scallops and shrimp appetizer was awesome. Cream of crab soup was acceptable. Service given only 3 stars because we were only ones in dining room but took about 2 hours from start to finish. I think next time would have said we only have so much time to be there so the staff would have been more attentive. Definitely will return.

I thought the gift certificate I had for $200 for two people would have been more food than we got. The food was great but for $100 per person, there should have been more quantity. And we should have been able to pick our food rather than just it being given to us. My guest did not eat 80% of the food we were given because she didn't like many of the servings.

Very nice atmosphere. I loved how quiet and quaint your restaurant is. Food is reasonable priced and very tasty. Linen tablecloths and candles were very inviting to relax and have a nice QUIT dinner where as so many restaurants you have to scream to each other to talk. I'll be back
