What a great place! The drive is a bit out there but it was worth it and easy to find. The restaurant is adorable and cozy. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was really good! I enjoyed the cocktails as they were fun without being too crazy. We will definitely come again!

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.

We went to Bud's for our wedding anniversary and our friends secretly arranged to have sparkling wine sent to our table. We were impressed and appreciated that the chef/owner greeted us and poured the wine for us to wish us a happy anniversary. We lucked out because Ken had a tasting dinner the previous night and some off-the-menu selections were offered to us. They sounded so wonderful that we did not even look at a menu. Food was amazing! Mixed grill with Red Deer Backstrap and Leg of Duck Confit. Great service. We will not wait for a special occasion to come back!
