We had 2 recommendations to go to Bud's on the Bay. The location on a warm, still evening was perfect. Service was good, but the food incredibly disappointing. The fish & chops totally over fried, the salmon dry, the prawns nice, but the bed of rice vey tired. Thank goodness for the view!

In the area overnight, we enjoyed the beautiful riverside town of Brockville. Bud's was recommended by the tourist info office for waterside dining. The outdoor deck was nice with a view of marina and river, and provide shaded as well as sunny tables. The service was attentive and friendly. Only problem was the food. My husband's fish and chips was... More

The food at Bud's on the Bay is really good! They have a nice menu with many different kinds of foods. The atmosphere is great because there is an outdoor deck on the roof making it really nice to overlook the Brockville waterfront. Our server was really nice to us and she was always smiling! The value of the food... More

Used to be a regular down there but stopped going when the new owners took over. Came back to check it out after the previous owner came back and was VERY glad I did. Had dinner with some friends on the patio and had a fantastic meal! Service was great (thanks Jamie) and our dinner was awesome!! There are some... More

An hour away from where we live is Brockville and the every wonderful Buds on the Bay. On a sunny day it is one of the best places to be. Situated near the water, a balconey towards the water, cold beer and good food, what is not to like :) This time there were boat racing going on so it... More

Had a great hamburger that was big enough for two. Bud's has some great choices if your a vegetarian. Meal came with a salad. The waitress asked if we would like a Greek salad or Caesar salad. Forgot to mention it cost extra. Worth the price but would have liked to know the up charge when I ordered instead of... More

Stay away from this place, unless you have lots of money to waste. Very over priced food & drinks and they even have the nerve to add a $ 2.00 charge for a bug wipe to keep the flies away. Poor management, bad food and over priced drinks.

Delicious food and excellent service accompanied by an outstanding view when you sit on the patio at this restaurant. I had prawn skewers and my husband had salmon.

My wife and I went to Buds on the bay for the second time on June 19 2014. Let's start with the first time we went, it was not that great but not as bad as last night. We went with a couple of friends for a graduation party and we ordered at 18:45 PM and my wife and I... More

My son and I went for breakfast this morning and were greeted by a friendly waitress who informed us that the downstairs was full but there was seating upstairs on the patio. We went up stairs and were greeted promptly and seated. The waitress quickly brought me my coffee and my son his orange juice while we decided what to... More
