We stopped in Buddy's today for lunch. We got the all-u-can eat seafood buffet. Food was awesome....but we had to move 6 plates (in the stack next to the buffet) before we cam across a clean plate. It appears their dishwasher half does the job. Our table was very very sticky from either spilt beer or soda. Great food if... More

I went there with family on a Wednesday afternoon for the seafood lunch buffet. There was just enough choices to eat that I felt adequately stuffed on a variety of seafood. They also had salad, chicken, pizza and desserts. I will definitely go back again.

The food here is fine, but you go to Buddy's for the same reason you go to Chick n Ruth: because that's where tourists in Annapolis go. You will have a fine enough meal, but you really go there to be able to say that you went.

We ate at Buddy's because we wanted some good seafood. We had crab cakes. They were excellent. Service was good. They are on second floor of a building on Main Street.

We had the buffet and it was quite adequate. Expensive but the choices were good. Our waiter was way too attentive but it was still a nice meal. We would go back again. Be sure to ask for a seat by the window. All seating is upstairs.
