I especially enjoy breakfast at Buds on the Bay; especially in the summer. You have quite a choice of seating areas, including outside on the second floor.

This restaurant provides an interesting and varied menu. The food is absolutely outstanding and extremely reasonably priced. It is the favourite breakfast spot for Brockville residents and the fact that it is frequented so extensively by the local population attests to the quality, value, menu and outstanding service in a delightful pub atmosphere. I have eaten at all times a... More

The atmosphere in this old building is nice, and the restaurant area is separate from the bar area. The service was quick and friendly and the food was very good. I have no complaints with this place and would definitely recommend. Years ago they used to have a great rooftop patio, unsure if they still do but great during the... More

Friends and I have been coming here for years. Always a pleasant experience. They used to give the birthday person a free meal with a slice of cake with a candle on it. How awesome is that. Needless to say I and my friends came here for our birthdays for years. Summertime we sit up on the patio facing the... More

A great breakfast, a excellent start to the day. A very wide choice of food. My wife doesn't eat meat but a good choice for her. The staff were very cheerful, helpful and polite. Would go again if I over here in Canada. One of the best breakfast I had in Canada and I like my breakfasts.

Have been here many times! Everytime I visit Brockville, I stop here for dinner. The staff is friendly and courteous. The food is really good and worth every penny! I usually get the steak and lobster, and I love it! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!

After our 1000 Islands Cruise, it only seemed natural to stop by Bud's On The Bay for a quick bite to eat. Our waiter was very friendly, as was the bar keep. The food was delicious, though we had to wait quite some time to be served (it was busy). The soup was fantastic and homemade. The sandwich I had... More

We went to Bud's for breakfast and very disappointed, we were a table of 5, it took too long to get our first coffee and chocolate milk, waited again to get our second coffee and second chocolate milk while waiting for our breakfast. Over an hour to get our breakfast, where to homefries were over cooked and our 2 pieces... More

Bud's on the Bay was recommended to us by our hotel. We arrived about 7:30 pm and were seated at a table upstairs on the open air deck overlooking the water. We didn't have a reservation, but were able to secure a table for two within 5 minutes wait. Menu is good and offers a variety of food and beer... More
