Amazing crab soup, chili, crab cake, and great waitress!
Chef Ken always surprises with something unexpected and delicious. This week's soup of the day was excellent.
A wonderful meal and experience - this is the place to go for a great evening.
We always enjoy our dining experience at Buds. We have brought friends and family and the always rave about the meals. Great people Ken and Brooke, we love you.
This place is great! I highly recommend you check it out. You won't regret it. The food is amazing and thd people are just as great.
The atmosphere and friendly service is great. While the food was good, it was not special. Wine and drinks were limited but good selections overall. Desert was exceptional.
I do recommend this restaurant if you have never been before and for something different. Others may find something special during their experience.
Had a great time and was able to talk to my date without it being loud. The Food was great! I'd really recommend the sausage and grits also the duck and the salmon was great too. Haven't been to the bar side yet but I've heard their bartenders are quite exceptional and can make anything you can think of.
Ken & staff do a fantastic job from beginning to end. The food is excellent and the wine list superb.
We love Bud's at Silver Run and highly recommend!
I was a little disappointed with the atmosphere at Bud’s. It was our first time here and we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The tables were a bit close and there was no music, making it a bit awkward. The atmosphere was definitely lacking. That being said, the food was good. Maybe we’ll try the bar if we go back again.
Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our meal which was prepared to perfection with interesting flair and just right proportions. The menu included something for everyone’s taste. Ambiance was perfect for a quiet dinner. Desserts were ordinary but certainly satisfying.
Chef Ken always has a unique take on what might otherwise be an ordinary meal. Well done!
I visited at Bud's at Silver Run with a friend of mine and we sat bar side.
The atmosphere is welcoming and fun -- several suggestions of drinks and appetizers were made by our waitress. The potato and leek soup sounded delicious -- one of my favorites.
My friend chose the blackened tuna salad and I chose the surf and turf burger. My friend mentioned that her meal came out to perfection - the tuna was cooked exactly to her liking.
My surf and turf burger was delicious - I added goat cheese which was the extra taste that I like.
The owner stopped by and chatted with us and gave us the highlights of the menu and also told us a bit about the restaurant.
Bud's at Silver Run has quickly become one of my favorite stops for a great meal. I will certainly return again in the near future.
Thank you for providing top quality meals and a great dining experience.
Wonderful experience!! Thank you so much for making my friends birthday a happy one.
Food was good but the kitchen extremely slow. Not an extremely busy night and plenty of wait staff. This was disappointing
Buds continues to be one of the best casual Dining experiences in Carroll County. Ken is a creative chef and great host. Their new menu merges their bar menu with the dining menu and now offers a number of smaller plates and less entrees. We tried the Elk chop in a blueberry gastrique that paired nicely with the wild rice mushroom kale side. Cooked to perfection. Would definitely get this again.
Great menu with more couples meal options, small plate options, great appetizers and a sandwich and burger selection along with great salads. Comfortable environment and well trained staff. True feel of a family owned restaurant. Not a huge wine menu but nice selection in all price ranges. Food delicious and locally grown.
Great food and experience. Intimate.
This was our second trip to Bud's, and we found it just as enjoyable as the first time. Everyone enjoyed the cream of crab soup, and one of us had the wild mushroom au gratin. Very tasty. Victoria was an excellent server.
Excellent food. We have mixed reviews on the new menu which lists sandwiches and dinner entrees. The women in the group liked the smaller portion option.
Had the half and half crab soup, best ever!! We had crab cakes and steak, all was absolutely delicious!! The waitress was very attentive as well. Will definitely be back!!
Another wonderful meal at this gem of a restaurant. Loved that the chef came out and spoke with us.
Food was outstanding and the server was excellent. It did take us over an hour to get our first course, and over 2 hours for the whole experience. We had an engagement after dinner that made this timeframe stressful, so next time we’ll allow plenty of time.
This was my wife and I first time here. Quiet restaurant that used to be a house but was very beautifully designed. Staff was courteous and knowledgeable. Definitely coming back
This was our first time at Bud's. The restaurant was quaint, and very well appointed. The food was great, and Victoria was a great waitress.
I absolutely love Buds! We eat here every year on our anniversary! The people, food and atmosphere are all top notch!
The outside looks are deceiving. Inside is elegant dining with a great atmosphere. Food was top notch and some of the best I have had in this area of not the best. Grits were amazing. Stuffed Rockfish was Devine. This is a hole in the wall local eatery that should not be missed.
Excellent service! And--Chef Ken always has an interesting surprise on the special of the day menu.
We enjoy everything about Bud's, especially the food. Superior food and service, plus, Bud's is warm, comfortable and inviting.
A real surprise out in the country. Lovely atmosphere. Great staff. Worth the travel to get to it. Food is creative and excellent.
The appetizers were better prepared than the main course, The crab crostini were perfect, and especially the Risotto with shrimp, which was delicious. My entree, the Chicken Chesapeake, had good crabmeat, but the chicken was uninspiring and a little dry. The fingerling potatoes also were a little dry. I shared a strawberries and Grand Marnier dessert that was very good, with fresh local strawberries. I’m sitting on the fence and am not certain I’ll be back soon.
The initial impression walking in was great. When our nasty waitress appeared and so called waited on us it went down hill instantly. Her nasty attitude got so bad that my sweet husband said, Are you mad at us for some reason"? However the food was very good and we will go back one more time to give the staff a second chance.
Always good !!
A real gem!
The best crab cakes we’ve ever had (and we are both from the Eastern Seaboard).
Great service; really wonderful menu in an unexpected rural MD location. Well worth the 15 minutes of extra driving.
Excellent service and the food was incredible
Nick greeted us, seated us, and made sure that our water glasses were filled during dinner; great job, Nick.
Carla, our waitress knew the ins and outs of the daily's specials, and readily repeated them back to us as asked. She did not rush our ordering, in fact, I was surprised that there was such a casual, laid-back atmosphere for a Saturday night. Carla did not push the menu on us, in fact, we didn't see one for the first 15 minutes. She was quick to ask if our drinks needed refreshing and apologized for the long wait for our second drinks. (Not her fault) She did a great job.
The bread basket has two types of warmed bread and came with olive oil and butter crab bruschetta appetizer was delicious, as was the cream of crab soup (Lots of lump meat) and Maryland crab soup. The soup spoons were oversized tablespoons, I would look into ordering standard round bowl soup spoons. I ordered the catfish with crabmeat and creamy grits, and a zucchini squash medley; one of the specials. My wife and our neighbor both ordered London broil, rare and medium rare and they were cooked spot on. The wild rice was excellent. Other friend ordered Chesapeake chicken and was satisfied with presentation and taste.
We were too full for dessert but still listened to the choices. They all sounded great.
I was disappointed this time. Food was no where near as good as it has been and no one from the kitchen cared to come out and inquire why only 1 bite was missing from servings.
Bud's does not disappoint. We've dined there numerous times over many years since they opened, and it's not close to where we lived in Ellicott City! Def worth the trip. We have moved to FL but come into town to visit and Bud's is always on the list of 'must dos'!!!
We love Bud’s! Carla is one of our favorite servers. She has a great personality and is very helpful in choosing which entree we should do when we like so many things on the menu! The food as always is just so delicious! We love the grilled Caesar salad when it’s on the menu. Great place for lunch, dinner or special occasion!
Service was good, ambience good, we were celebrating my daughters birthday. My wife and I had a Rebun sandwich there was very little cornbeef and what there was of it was tough and hard to chew. My daughter had a French dip it was fine. My son-in law had a open faced prime rib it was fine. Deserts we had Choclate cake and Cheesecake and they were good. I have been in the hospitality industry all my life I hope this email is constructive.
Waitress was a little spacy but adequate. She stopped in the middle of our order to greet people coming in. She had double duty that day. Overall the service was fine. Three of us ordered Rib eye steaks and they were tasty. Another ordered scallops and she said they were very good. Owner/Chef greeted the diners .
