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!

Stopped at Buddy's after a long walk in freezing cold weather. The crabcake sandwich I got was one of the best I've ever eaten.

In town visiting the In-laws, and we decided to walk around Annapolis to get brunch. After looking at multiple menu's online - we decided Buddy's had the most diverse, and best price, for a breakfast with kids and adults. We made reservations, and got there soon after it opened. We were treated to a wide variety of steamed seafood, waffles... More

This place was recommended in a guidebook which was why we ate here - wish we hadn't. The food was really not great - limp salad leaves which looked as if they'd seen better days, lukewarm entrees. The appetisers and entrees and salad all arrived at pretty much the same time. Nice staff and location, but food was very poor... More

My brother and I worked here right when Buddy's opened. It was fun coming here now with my family. We had dinner for New Years Eve buffet; food was sooo good for such a PACKED house. We got a window table and saw the 7:30 pm fireworks. Kevin (owner) was always on top of things and the best part, our... More

We had the New Year's Eve buffet. Overall great food; included quality seafood selections and delicious desserts. Surprisingly short wait time and good service, considering how busy they were, and very reasonably priced. The location was absolutely unbeatable. We had a table next to the window overlooking downtown Annapolis! It's a family-friendly place, we'd definitely return.

I've been here a few times in the past few years and most recently last week to see the Christmas parade of boats. My wife and kids had the buffet. It is expensive ($26?) for adults but has a great selection of seafood, food and desserts. I had a soup and salad and it was good. We are staying a... More

I have been here many times with several family members. It's great because the buffet offers something to please everyone-- both hearty eaters and veggie lovers. We prefer the Sunday brunch buffet, which is only $14.95, which is a great price for all of the different food available, especially seafood. Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Screwdrivers are also available at half... More
