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.

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 .

Went to Bud's for my birthday dinner and enjoyed the best cream of crab soup around! the restaurant was quiet and the wait staff was on the ball. The owner came to our table several times to check on us and eventually sat down at the table next to us and had a lengthy conversation with us. Great food and very friendly atmosphere!

I knew Valentine's Day was going to be busy so I went in knowing service would take longer. But what I did not expect was lukewarm food after waiting for an unreasonable amount of time. Appetizer (crab crostini) took 40 minutes and it was soggy and warm at best. The potatoes and asparagus were lukewarm, too. How could the potatoes be lukewarm when they were plated under a steak? No way was I going to send it back because it would have been midnight before it came back out. It was a bit disappointing given our past experiences. I hope this was just a hiccup on a busy night.

Nice place to eat, make sure you get there early as the parking is awful. The parking area may hold 10 cars, however by the time we left (6ish) there were at least 20 and a produce truck in the lot.

We took a family member for a 60th birthday to Bud's. She had never been there and was quite surprised when she walked through the doors. She expected a bbq joint, instead found a warm, inviting and casual, elegant dining restaurant. We all ordered drinks, which were prepared perfectly. We each ordered different meals and every one was pleasing to the eye and delicious. The staff was friendly, attentive and we loved that the owner/chef stepped out of the kitchen to ask folks about their dining experience. This is a fun place to dine and the relaxed atmosphere and food make it worth driving a little distance to get to. One of our favorite "newest" finds!

We enjoy traditions, and our previous traditional anniversary restaurant was destroyed in a flood. We very much enjoyed our meal at Bud's and we will definitely be back next year. I had a steak that was very flavorful (and not just from the rub). My wife had crab cake which she said was very well done and almost entirely lump crab meat. Prices were typical for a restaurant of this quality.

Our first conversation, when we got home from Bud's (about a 45-minute drive) after lunch with our grown son for an early Father's Day, started with "Wasn't that a great lunch -- when was the last time we sat down unhurried and had such wonderful food and conversation?" I could not have asked for a better experience as the "hostess" for our jaunt, from the on-line reservation to the final dessert and coffee. Excellent marks for the entire thing.

My first visit to Bud's was more than I anticipated. The dining room is exquisitely renovated, appropriate for an historic colonial structure ambiance. The food is beyond five-star quality. The service staff are gracious and dutiful. Personally meeting Ken and talking with him all evening was pleasantly engaging and highly enlightening for this newcomer to the Silver Run area.

I love Bud's. Great food and great service. The regular menu is really good, but they always have really cool, great specials. The chilli and the peanut butter pie are two of the best that I've had. Either way, we just always have a really good experience. Super nice folks and really good food.

Not what I was expecting for our 2nd visit. Our special anniversary celebration contained food not up to the usual standard for Bud's (My rib eye steak was nearly a third pure fat) and my wife's Chicken Chesapeake was very small for the price). Having eaten here before, I was looking to Bud's for a memorable meal on this special occasion but unfortunately, it did not happen. Was it that it was on Preakness Saturday which marred the ocassion?

Walking into Bud's is like coming home ! We are bar diners but enjoy great food. Buds has a beautiful dining room and also a great bar area.

My daughter and I stopped by for lunch on Mothers Day. I had the beet salad w/ crab cake and my daughter had a grilled Caesar w/ salmon. Both were excellent and the salmon was cooked as ordered

The bartender was attentive but not overbearing. And although is was quite busy, the meal was well paced. Hard to beat Bud's!

Have driven by Buds @ Silver Run for years when traveling and have always thought it would be a good place to eat, but never made it happen as it's out of our normal radius. Planning a spontaneous get together with friends, Buds seemed to be a mid-point for both couples, about an hour for each of us. WELL WORTH THE DRIVE!! Very upscale and fine dining but not overdone. Menu is creative and the Chef executes well. Comfortable atmosphere and a hidden gem for sure. Have already recommended Buds to several family & friends we saw the following day and would absolutely make the trip back. Totally understand why it's been voted Carroll County's best for multiple years. If you're in PA...even as far as Gettysburg, make the drive. It's easy and very well worth it!!

Something was amiss with the Open Table reservation system. When I tried to book online, the response was that the restaurant had no availability until 1:30 that Sunday. So I took the 1:30 slot and detained our gusets with small talk until the appointed hour. When we reached the restaurant, it was virtually empty. Next time, I'll call the establishment directly, bypassing Open Table.

Good food. We had filet, scallops, crab cake and chicken Maryland. Party of four. Service was attentive, with a little occasional prompting.
Catered to my wife's need for gluten-free, though choices would be improved with one or two GF desserts, especially given this was a combined birthday and other celebration occasion.
A little pricier than expected, but overall good.
