I've been visiting Brockville regularly for the last 3 months and Buds has become my regular stop. The food is always good, much better the usual "pub grub.".

Quality of food was really good, but quantity was less. Steak was superb. We were in town for 1000 island cruise and decided to have dinner as it was near by. Kids also enjoyed the meal.

Buds on the Bay, overlooking the St Lawrence river, lovely just lovely. They will bend over backwards to accommodate, they owner is present and available. We had a wonderful server in Kerri. If you need a relaxing laid back atmosphere, this for you. Dianne.

Our motorcycle club held a breakfast there this month. John and his staff put on a buffet for us and it was excellent. Great food, great service.

The staff are unfailingly friendly and the prices are reasonable. I've been there in the summer as well, when the large upstairs deck is open and it's very comfortable too.

Several visits over a couple of months while working in the area, with pretty consistent results. Food was always good, service was slow, especially when there was a full house. Probably should look at extra staff during the tourist season.

Horrible service, it took 15-20 minutes to get noticed by a server, and then my drink order was forgotten. Dirty environment, especially the smelly patio (reeks of garbage). Food is terrible, VERY slow to get your order let alone your warm beer drink order. Over cooked burgers, steaks. Don't waste your time or your money!

We have tried Bud's more than a few times in the past year. We won't be back. They have a special for November 14.99 for a decent size steak with carrots and fries. There were 5 slices of carrot (that looked like they were boiled to death yesterday), some of the fries were overdone and some were underdone. The steak,... More

Staff was friendly. The food was pretty good and hot. We were there with a group and had the upstairs to ourselves however it was cold in the room halfway through our meal. Service was slower for some families. When ordering my steak I was asked if i preferred mushrooms or onions and was not aware or advised these items... More

Sundays are packed and we waited long for our food. The quality of the food is good and worth the wait.
