Got there at the height of the rush on Friday evening. Parking lot was almost full and people were waiting to be seated. Uh oh. However, we were seated within 10 minutes, service was great, food was terriffic. What more can I say? Try the white clam sauce!

When living in Apalachin Buds was a once a week dinner out. Great chicken and veal parm. It is now a must when traveling back to town. They also have great pizza.

I've never had a bad meal here, but the atmosphere is loud and the tables are so close together that it's hard to walk through to your seat. When I've gone here, I've spent my meals in silence rather than shout to my dinner companions. The food takes a while to come, so it's not friendly to very young children... More

The pizza at Buds is the best in the triple cities. Sauce is delicious, crust is perfect. Also had a salad which was very fresh.... The Steak sandwich is also great. Its a little dark in the dining room and service was a little slow but they were very busy...Great value all around. They are cash only which I see... More

Thought this was an Appalachin landmark. Not sure why they are still in business. Two in my party had orange roughy which was poor at best. Prime rib was also fair. They don't take credit cards do they know that it is 2013 and my paperboy takes credit cards? To add insult to injury their ATM machine charges you a... More

We stopped here thinking it was a diner. Upon entering, we realized it an Italian restaurant. We ordered the cheese pizza and gnocchi. The pizza was very tasty. It tasted like their was a blend of Swiss and mozzarella on it but it was very good. The gnocchi special was also tasty. Their sauce is awesome!! I compare it to... More

Good Italian food. Big servings. They don't take credit cards. Old fashioned, down home restaurant. Everything my friends and I ate was delicious. Can't go wrong!

I stopped at this place to eat but they do not accept credit cards. I understand why they do this but for folks who do not carry cash or those that do not want to be goughed by ATM fees, this is problematic. Do what my mechanic does; add a 4% surcharge to card users. Your food sounds good but... More
