    Bud's never disappoints! We try to visit as often as we can, but since moving it is a bit further away for us unfortunately! Our server Billie Jo was terrific and we always enjoy our visits with Ken! The sprout salad was amazing and the seared scallops were perfect! Had to leave room for the creme brulee! Can't wait to go back and enjoy a wonderful meal again!

    Raw Oysters, Fire poppers, cream of crab soup, crab cake and Rockfish were all very good. French dip sandwich was not great, and green beans with crab cake were a bit undercooked. Our server, "Filene"?? was great and the manager and owner made it a point to come check in on us. The atmosphere is very nice with warm colors, natural finished wood floors, nice paintings & photos and white table cloths with black cloth napkins. Will definitely return.

    Food was prepared tastefully (DELICIOUS) and presented well. Service was exceptional. Would like to see a candle on each table (even fake candle okay) . We will definitely revisit Buds. Looking forward to trying their shrimp salad as well as Chicken Chesapeake and chocolate fudge cake.

    We were looking forward to dining at Buds again and have read lots of favorable reviews recently. We were disappointed. The soups and salads, along with 2 of our 4 entrees, were excellent. But the fish—halibut substituted for rockfish which we ordered before being told that the rockfish was not available—was dry, and the coffees we’d ordered with dessert never came. (Though we were initially charged for them). The ambience was nice but tight quarters magnified the volume of nearby parties. Improved service could have pivoted the evening to a more enjoyable experience. We’ll try other places before we head back to Bud’s.

    Was so looking forward to eating here but was so disappointed with our meals. My Chicken Chesapeake had a piece of breast meat with a bone and very dried out, however the crab imperial on top was good. My boyfriend wanted the Rockfish on the menu but it wound up being Halibut, not too bad but didn’t come with the corn salsa that was to accompany it, also he wanted FF instead of the potatoes but didn’t get. The service was good though and the atmosphere was too but our meals were disappointing.

    High end, well prepared, mostly local sourced food with quality ingredients served in a casually elegant yet pleasantly relaxed ambience which belies the unassuming building exterior which could suggest something equally friendly but not quite as posh as it actually is. Very nice, attentive service and the owner circulates the floor and fields any questions beyond standard menu knowledge. We had spinach salad, blackened fish with salsa and summer squash, steak and potatoes for entrees, and chocolate cake and bread pudding for dessert with freshly brewed coffee. Everything was very good. This is the second time I've had bread pudding there, and it deserves special mention for its deliciousness. Not a huge place, reservations a good idea.

    First time in after passing by it on the road for many years. Have to say it measures up to it's excellent ratings. My wife and I went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it from service by Lori to Bud's wonderful food. I ordered a crabcake sandwich and a cup of cream of crab soup. My wife ordered a rib eye sandwich and a cup of the Maryland crab soup. Both meals were delicious and my crabcake sandwich featured some of the best tasting fries I've ever had. Long Island Iced teas were large and made well. Altogether a fine experience and we look forward to dining there for dinner soon.

    My wife and I dine at Buds regularly. The service and the food is always outstanding. Ken Lurie, the owner makes a point of visiting each table. He ensures that every individual is satisfied. His wife, Brooke, is frequently a server and since she is also an accomplished chef, she is a great source of information about every item on the menu. As usual, we were totally satisfied with the entire dining experience!

    We had never been to Bud's, but friends were impressed and recommended. I was pleasantly surprised upon walking in the seeing the nice white tablecloths, glassware etc. Truly an upscale restaurant that didn't look so from the outside. Yet, the prices were reasonable. The food was excellent! The crab spring rolls to die for. We are already making plans to return.
