Still one of the best places in South Florida for scrumptious craft beer. Special bacon/beer pairing and pig roast for this weekend’s annual celebratory release of Maple Bacon Coffee Porter beer! All employees wear masks appropriately and consistently. Outdoor seating spaced more than 6 feet apart for safety. Be sure to try the Barrel-Aged Morning Wood, when available...five enthusiastic stars!

This brewery has done an amazing job at providing a safe experience for those who choose to dine at the location. Tables were well spaced, food was brought in disposable containers, and the servers were a nice addition to the experience. The server told us that the company paid them throughout the closure due to the pandemic. Well done Funky Buddha.

Came in to renew club membership. Looked disorganized. No one at door and we waited to get seated. Wasn’t anyone taking responsibility to seat people nor were we asked if we made a reservation. Beer was good as was food. Service was bad. Asked for check and our waitress said be right back. She disappeared. Had to get check from different server. Long story short didn’t renew. Just wasn’t anything to get excited about in beer lineup. Another COVID casualty I guess. Been long time members too. Didn’t recognize most of the staff.

Servers passed by our table several times before we could get them to take our order. Order wasn't correct. We've enjoyed in the past, but even with many servers, the service was poor.

I was seated immediately, no menus. We weren’t told we had to scan the tables QR code and eventually figured it out on our own. We were sitting for about 30 minutes with no water, or even anyone asking us if we need anything or took our order. 3 waiters walked right past us. I understand times are hard right now but I have never been so genuinely dissatisfied with this restaurant. It was not very busy. I just don’t understand why they are allowed to treat people that way. I’m disgusted by the lack of service. Nobody even said anything to us on our way out but they sure did stare me down, almost felt like I was being racially profiled.

Went to funky buddha for the dolphins game. We were greeted at the front and was shown to our table right away. Menus were digital which made it safer to dine. Beers were amazing as always. Plenty of tvs to watch all the games. Tables were social distant and all employees kept masks on.

Everything besides the fact that the waiter forgot to order my food was great. The hostess was a sweetheart, my second waiter (not the one who forgot about my food) was awesome and the beers were out of this world!! I’m definitely going back!!

The visit on Oct 22nd, my first time, was great. However, when I went back on Sat, the 24th, the female assistant manager was very rude to me when I asked to return a FB hat that I had purchased but didn't fit me. I'd like to go back and bring some other guests, but not if I'm going to be treated like that.

Great effort to establish a COVID-safe environment with well-spaced tables, mask requirements (when not seated). Only issue we encountered during our visit was being at the mercy of the roving servers: without a designated server, you might be checked on twice in the space of five minutes but then not see someone for 20-30 minutes, and without the option to head up to the bar yourself, it made for an uneven experience. All in all, well done, FB, we'll definitely be back.

First time at this brewery. Seats were spread so far apart it was strange. Much more so than other restaurants in this COVID era. Server was very nice and accommodating. Food was just average, somehow we expected better. Probably won't be back unless just drinking post COVID.

My friends and I went to watch the FSU/UM football game. We went with reservations made and were seated right away. They had huge screens set up so no matter where you sat inside you had a great view!
Our server was awesome and the rest of the staff was very friendly!
Love Funky Buddha & the new seltzer’s are amazing!!

This was only my second time going to the brewery and my first since the pandemic started and it left me as positively astonished as the first time. I was there with friends to watch the Dolphins play and the way they had all the tables set up, made us feel very comfortable and safe. We order a couple of appetizers consisting of the yuca fries and the bacon and both were to die for. Our server who I recognized as one of the main bartenders there was outstanding with the service and, personally, I let him call every beer I got and he literally and figuratively delivered. As far as the ambiance goes, it’s never too loud, you can tell most parties were there to watch the games, and everyone kept it civil. Finally, I love their set up, their rustic ambiance, and the fact that you still feel like you are in a brewery. In short, not only would I recommend going there and actually sitting down during this harsh time, but ALL their beers are amazing no matter what you’re taste. That you Funky Buddha staff, I will be returning soon.

First of all, we appreciated the social distancing signs, hand-sanitation areas, and distanced seating arrangements. The service was fantastic! Our bartender/server was great with drink recommendations, quick with our orders, and checked on us throughout the night.
The food and drinks were delicious and we were so happy to be there on Friday night!

The beer is fantastic- always a great selection. But when we went they were out of chicken, so we couldn't order 1/2 of their menu.

Service was lacking. Had to call server over more than once. Food was pretty good. Beer selection wasn’t very diverse, too many IPAs. Cool atmosphere though. Would go back.

We have missed the Funky Buddha since the shutdown. When we heard the tap room was open, we wanted to get our fix right away (love the Bison Burger). We love the addition of fries to the menu (the seasoning was perfect. Thanks Jeff). Congratulations to you all. We hope that the Proud to be Funky group that we belong to, will be back real soon.

Love Funky Buddha. They have unique beers for all tastes and some other things too. They also have vegetarian friendly food options.

The staff is knowledgeable and courteous. The place including the toilets are clean.

The themed decor is pleasant and they pipe in some good tunes too.
