Bud's at Silver Run
Our own recipe! Made with jumbo lump crab meat, served with roasted tri-color baby potatoes
With blueberry gastrique and wild rice, mushrooms, and baby kale
Fresh pan-seared salmon with teriyaki pineapple sauce, served with wild rice
I had a solo dinner tonight and left beyond satisfied. My server was personable and knowledgeable about the menu. My cocktails/entree/dessert all came out sooner than I expected and my water glass was never empty. I especially loved the berry crème brulee! What a great experience.
Discovered this little gem via the Carroll County Chamber of commerce. The food was delicious. Highly recommend.
Would recommend this location for anyone who likes great food and service.
Wonderful atmosphere, excellent food only wished my roast beef was hotter. I definitely would go back.
The food is exquisite and well worth the drive to Union Mills! An excellent House Wine reasonably priced!
The food has been consistently well prepared and delicious. This is one of our "go to" places for a nice meal.
As always everything was amazing! We’ve never had a bad meal here. Can’t wait to visit again!
The tester ain’t was great, the food was awesome, and the service was top notch
As always… food, service, atmosphere - all FABULOUS
My husband and I had our first date at Bud's six years ago and we decided to go back to celebrate on our anniversary. The food was fantastic and they gave us a mini bottle of champagne to celebrate.
My mother and law and I had a marvelous time for Mother's Day. The food was very delicious and the service was phenomenal. A very lovely atmosphere and a great experience. The restaurant has a special very and definitely a place for special occasions.
Fantastic food and service, but a bit pricy. However, it’s the kind of ‘pricy’ you don’t mind paying for… you just can’t go there as often as you’d like!
First time there and enjoyed a good meal from the many choices on the menu
Always a fantastic experience! Crab Egg rolls are spectacular. Ken and Brooke go out of their way to ensure everyone is satisfied.
The food was great and Lara our server was top notch. I had the salmon and it was wonderful.
Staff was welcoming and the food was delicious. No complaints. Look forward to returning.
Always a great place for lunch or dinner. Staff are always helpful and cheerful. Ken Lurie (chef/owner) always comes out of the kitchen to greet his customers and talk about his menu. It's casual but a white linen restaurant. I have never been disappointed at Bud's. The restaurant is on the smaller side so it can become a little loud but it still can be intimate.
Chef Ken's new pasta/lobster appetizer is excellent!
Special of the day was excellent and you must try the crab egg roll for the appetizer.
The food was very good. This was our second visit there and the food was just as good as the first. The service however was not great both times. We had the same waitress both times. She is very forgetful, we had to ask several times for the same things or ask someone else anfter waiting 10+ mins for something that was asked for more than once. The wait to place an order for drinks, apps and dinner was very long.
The food and service were excellent! My husband had the soft shell crab appetizer and said it was one of the best he’s ever had. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was friendly and checked in on us frequently making sure everything was to our liking. We will definitely visit Bud’s again!
Two things: The bread should not be toasted for the hot roast beef sandwich and the sangria needs to be darker and more alcohol added. Other than those two things, it was stupendous!!
Bud’s is definitely one of mine & my husband’s favorite restaurants. The food is always superb, service is excellent and staff is friendly.
Bud's is great ! The food is always super and the owner is probably the nicest owner I have ever met !! Try anything and you will like it but the specials are always the best .
Great food and atmosphere, our new favorite place. Will be back soon.
A wonderful time with friends -- thank you for everything! The appetizers and salads were terrific. We loved the cheesecake too.
Bud's at Silver Run is a hidden gem in Carroll County, Maryland!
The food is always good with good service. You can get a light meal and or a hearty one off of the specials. Great place weather at the bar or seated in the dinning room.
Have always had wonderful experiences at Bud's. Can't wait to go again!
Excellent food. Professional staff. I was AWESOME that we were served as it was an Anniversary celebration, and we didn't know Bud's was closed on Monday. We will DEFINITELY be back again. Thanks.
My wife and I dined on a Saturday. We did make reservations shortly before going. We were greeted and showed to a table immediately. Our waitperson was fun and knowledgeable. We paired a great bottle of wine with some mouthwatering steaks, recommended by our server. The chef even came out and talked with us for a few minutes. Can’t say enough about the staff. Very clean restaurant with COVID safety measures in place and enforced. Get out and eat at this great establishment!
Excellent meal, excellent service and excellent dining experience!
We love, love, love Buds!!! We moved a little farther away a few years ago so don’t get to visit as often as we’d like. Buds never disappoints- fresh creative meals, excellent service and great ambiance! Can’t wait till our next visit!
Do not judge the appearance of an older building. Very clean. Best salmon we have every had. Crab cakes were good and staff was amazing. Recommended the seafood eggroll. Food came of hot and fresh. Save room for dessert. Made in house and will be returning. Fantastic first experience.
Forgot to place this review so I apologize for forgetting dish names.
First time dining at Bud’s on the fine dining side. Wonderful experience. The highlights were their “cream cheese poppers” and egg roll appetizers.
I highly recommend this little gem located north of Westminster, MD! While this is a small venue (probably larger when the bar and outdoor areas are open), the ambience was perfect! The decor is clean and classy, with thoughtful additions like an etched glass pane between an open window frame and the foyer to prevent breezes and noise from affecting guests sitting at nearby tables. The cocktail I had was delicious as were the wines my father and I had with our lunch. The food was some of the best I've had in recent memory --so often even upscale restaurants have food that is mediocre...not the case at Bud's! The scallops were perfectly seared and even the spinach was really tasty. Our server was delightful, too. I cannot recommend Bud's enough and am already looking forward to my next visit. One last note...I have not gone to many restaurants given COVID-19, let alone taken my 85-year old father out to eat. Bud's has a strict mask policy and it was evident that they take sanitizing and social distancing seriously.
Food was good, unfortunately service was very slow. It felt like we were only 1 of a few couples in the restaurant. Seafood sautée was great. Roast beef was good. Food was good. The service was really disappointing.
Went for lunch. Not crowded. Had a full menu. We had appetizers and sandwiches. Food was impressive.
Well worth the drive! Highly recommended for any date night with friendly service and excellent quality food!
We started with the Oysters Rockefeller, the best we have had in a long time.
The Lobster bisque is scrumptious with lots of lobster stirred in.
The spinach salad was a winner.
The Veal chop was perfectly done along with the risotto.
The chef owner and wife are super friendly and out to please.
First visit but not the last. We will definitely drive 45 minutes to return. !
What a wonderful Valentine’s Day - the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect.
I highly recommend the Brussel sprouts (they were on the special of the day). We ordered the crab egg rolls - yum!!
Start to finish - everything was terrific. Thank you Ken and Brooke!!
Look forward to seeing you both again soon!
