This was my first visit to the town of Annapolis. Since I was in Maryland, I wanted to have a soft shell crab sandwich. I was referred to this place by one of the local store clerks. Service was good. The atmosphere was nice, but the soft shell crab sandwich was a huge disappointment for me. I didn't like the... More

We went here on a spur of the moment trip for thier seafood buffet. The buffet was more expensive then normal it was around $26 per person, but they had more seafood than they normally did. I would reccomend this place to anyone visiting this area, and I will definitely be back on my next trip. They food was great,... More

Hey Buddy, I gotta tell you. I don't give many five star reviews, particularly for takeout, but one warrants a high five. The cheeseburger was OK, and my granddaughter loved the fries, but the Maryland crab soup was delicious. Even my granddaughter commented, "I love this soup." She's not that easily impressed with takeout soup, so take her comment as... More

There staff is a little green and it may be wise for them to higher more seasoned servers. They where clueless on a few things.

Stopped by at Buddy's for Sunday brunch as they offered an all you can eat buffet. Food was ok and of a reasonable standard but it could all have done with being hotter. There was a wide selection with everything from mussels to fruit. The fresh waffles were good and the atmosphere was simple and relaxed. Lovely views across the... More

Buddy's is a down home restaurant with a bar type atmosphere when things get really cranked up. We have gone here many times when we visit Annapolis by boat for one reason their "crab cakes" which are delicious! I love crab cakes so I taste them wherever we travel and they are in season. We had a lovely seat on... More

Buddy's is kind of a hidden gem. It's hard to tell that it's a large restaurant because it's on the second floor of a building in downtown Annapolis. I think the only reason we got in last minute during a very busy weekend was that people are not aware of it...now they can be. The crab cakes were delicious and... More

Went to Buddy's based on a recommendation from a store downtown. The downstairs entrance advertised buddy loves kids but the upstairs has beer signs everywhere. The decor was confusing and didn't makes sense to me. Service was sub par, the waiter was attentive and friendly but used curse words on two occasions while speaking to us. The side I ordered...

My husband and I met another couple here. I have heard this restaurant recommended in person before by another Annapolis employee. I heard it ha a great view. I called to make a reservation an the hostess said they don't take reservations for parties under ten people and that we would be fine. On a Friday night I was a... More
