Delicious

The food was great! There was 4 of us and we all ordered something different to share. We ended up sharing snow crab, blue crab, soft shell crab, ahi tuna, salmon, stuffed shrimp, regular shrimp, crawfish, mussels, clams, oysters, hush puppies, asparagus, and salad.

Food was wonderful and plentiful. We all tried a different seafood combination and shared them. They were amazing.

We waited 45 minutes for a table (no big deal) but when we were seated and had placed drink orders, were told they were out of crabs. That info should've been shared prior to asking us to wait. I asked 3 times for a refill on my water and finally after 30 minutes went to the bar to get it... More

The brunch is excellent. Lots of choices of well prepared food. However I have to say the personalized omelette was the best--love that I get to decide what to put in it with multiple choices of meats(bacon, shrimp, lox, chicken and more) lots of beautifully chopped vegetables. The two men operating the station are quick and skilled at what they... More

We had the lunch buffet. Mostly fried seafood, ribs, etc. I had a very good chicken dish. The desserts were really good! Pretty good price for all you get. Warm inside! Service was good. Lots of stairs to climb to get upstairs so not for everyone. Nice view.

Ok, this place isn't fancy by any means. And it's pretty basic, which is one of its charms. This is an everyday restaurant. Most diners on the day we visited ate at the buffet, a melange of mostly fried foods. We ordered a raw oyster sampler - very fresh, tasted like they came right out of the sea. Next we... More

Brunch is usually not on the top of my list but I would go here every Sunday if I could. The options are endless... For people like me that are not breakfast food fans. And it's crazy affordable.

Different factions of my family visit Annapolis frequently. This is where we are from, though none of us live here. My brother and sister-in-law have eaten at Buddy's many times, so with the whole family in town for a funeral, we decided to hit them up. We, 8 grown-ups, a teenager, a first grader, and an infant, showed up around... More

My friend and I and my mom ate at Buddy's yesterday while walking around Downtown Annapolis. The food is just okay. The service was a little slow. It was just average. Will not go back.
