    Nice experience and perfectly prepared steaks. Sat in the bar area and the one bar tender, who was also our waiter, was efficient though seemed stressed and stretched to his limit. He did get some help later in our visit…

    When we entered in the person was very nice. Our waitress Sara was amazing. She helped us pick our appetizer and when that came out and food she always checked on us. The food was absolutely delicious. The only problem was behind these curtains you can hear people talking and that is fine but the cursing is not okay.

    Excellent food and atmosphere! We were seated at a table that wobbled pretty bad but the hostess fixed it. We also did not see our waitress for about 15 minutes after we were seated. I have never had that experience at Buddies before so I was a little disappointed.

The host, the wait staff, the bar and the chefs always exceed our expectations! We always return for these reasons! Thanks to everyone at Buddie's for making our date nights amazing!

    Celebrating 55 yrs of wedded bliss. As usual ordered Tomahawk. Cooked well. But we took home half. The half we took home was about a 6 oz of solid fat. Not happy !

    Everything was great but do not book a reservation with them through open table as they do not utilize if. You have to call for a reservation. We booked a reservation through open table and when we arrived they didn’t have our reservation and when we said it was through open table we were told, “oh, we don’t really use that; you have to call.” We were able to get a table.

    Our server was great. My steak was $13.00 MORE then what it says on the website. And my steak was not as good as it use to be. They do not offer you any bread or crackers. You can not even buy any bread, except for their $12.00 Oyster Loaf. They do not serve Baked Potatoes anymore. They do have Mashed Potatoes with the peeling in them. Yuck. The food was ok. We will not be back for a while.

    Steaks were highly seasoned and overcooked. Waiter asked us to cut into our steaks and walked away before getting an answer. Got our bottle of wine more than halfway done with the meal. It was my father’s 80th birthday. I wrote it on the reservation. They said it did nothing about it. Will never visit again.

    Buddies consistently delivers an exceptional dining experience. The food quality is premium, the service is professional, and the ambience is charming. Every aspect of our visit seemed to fuel conversation, and we were there for three hours without even realizing it. We will certainly return very soon.

    Very nice atmosphere, the server was very polite & professional. Would have preferred to have the oz. size listed on the filets as the Queen was quite small, very good, cooked to perfection but if we had known the size amount I probably would have gone with the King. The only complaint was the creme brulee, the sugar was flamed torched as needed but underneath the creme was cold & appeared to be instant? Will definitely return.

    Great experience and a pleasant surprise. Service was exceptional and the food exceeded expectations. It was a little noisy but not too bad, the cost was a little bit higher then I would have expected but concurrent with the quality and the experience.

    Great waitress..friendly and efficient. The Italian sausage queso with pasta is great. The brisket bombs are different and great. It’s hard to beat the crab and eggplant napoleon as an entree. Filling, full of flavor and consistently good. It’s a favorite destination for us.

    Our waiter was terrible. Wrong dressing on salad, steak was burnt, didn’t get second drink, took forever to be waited on and follow up. He even forgot to run our debt card to pay for the meal! The owner did call us and told my husband our meal was free so that was very nice. We love Buddies and have always had great service so this will not stop us from going back.
