Had an awesome time coworker recommended this joint for fresh blue crabs, went there and was not disappointed. They offer crabs by 1/2 dz and dozen at market price ($25 1/2 dz) Great steamed blue crabs, but also offer Snow crab clusters as well. Great variety of seafood, oysters, clams, shrimp... read more

The service at this restaurant is horrible. We waited 1 full hour to get our appetizers. We waited an additional 45 minutes to get our entrees, and finally decided to cancel our order. We, African American diners, watched as others who arrived after us, were served BEFORE us. The manager was unapologetic and crass. There are too many other good... More

My son and I stopped in for the Saturday buffet. The food was horrible. Most of the time the crab legs and oysters were totally gone. Everyone in a while they brought out a small tray, which people were liked up for. On the occasion that I DID get crab legs, they were so over cooked the shells were the... More

Potential. I ate here with a rather large group and had terrible service. The bathrooms were dirty. The oysters made me feel sick. All of the seafood is either with breaded or drowning in a butter-oil concoction, unless, of course, it happens to be frozen. The atmosphere is very loud, and to get to the dining area, you climb one... More

Had brunch at Buddy's. Some ordered off the menu and some got the buffet. the buffet has a lot to choose from as well as waffles and made to order omelets. We also had the mimosas and bloody marys what are special for the buffet.

I was here for a quick lunch at about 2PM. I wasn't in the mood for anything heavy so I just ordered the pasta, soup, and salad bar. The selections were not wonderful and a lot of it had been sitting for much too long. The salad entries weren't crisp and the pasta was so tired and limp you almost... More

The food was very good. The fried green tomatoes were great. The rest rooms were a total disaster. Urge caution. The business is on the second floor, with no elevator.

We were in town for a Boy Scout merit badge conference at the Naval Academy and had the pleasure of eating lunch at Buddy's. Try the English fish and chips and the Big Buddy (crab sandwich). They were both fabulous!
