On a cold winter night, after an exhausting afternoon of shopping and running errands in Brockville, my husband and I took refuge in Buds on the Bay. As I recall we had been to this location many years ago in the summer when the patio was crowded and the place rocked.This January evening was quite different. It had a peacefulness... More

We reserved the upstairs at Bud's for a team breakfast and were very impressed. The food was great, we had lots of private space for our team, and the service was excellent. Our party was 30 ppl and everything was ready and waiting for us. Prices were very reasonable. Location is excellent right on off the water. I'll be back... More

Daily soup/sandwich for under $10 with taxes and tip, and this is not a downsized meal. Burgers are great and the service is super friendly

Brittany was our lovely hostess who took care of all our needs, from adult beverages to hors d'oeuvres, main courses, desserts and coffee! Menu had a fantastic variety, reasonable prices and the atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable. Conversations could be... More

This is a nice waterfront bar and restaurant in downtown Brockville. The menu is varied with something for everyone. A good selection of beers on tap. Nice place for lunch.

I want to express my gratitude for the excellent service we received. Bud's was chosen by the happy couple who were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary primarily for its accessibility and varied menu. As a newcomer to Bud's I was impressed with the ease and flexibility I was met with when I called to reserve or update our group of... More

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

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.
