Where the locals eat...

This is a great little place to eat for pizza, italian or seafood. Prices are good and food is better. Staff is attentive and nice. Recently updated so I'll have to give them a visit. Get there early as they have a tendency to get busy! Caution though: it's cash only....no credit or debit cards... read more

Service is average, food comes out fast, place is a bit cramped and the major deciding factor for me, the steak. My other half and I had two different steaks, one of which was an $18 dollar prime rib. It was ordered med-well, but came out well.

Not sure what the big deal is but the hotel we stayed at recommended Bud's so we called for reservations. We were told they don't take reservations but would seat us. Then they told us they don't take credit cards. This is unacceptable for a business dinner of 12 peple. Most went elsewhere but a few of us got cash... More

Bud's is a nicely appointed family restaurant. We ate at the bar. the bartender was very friendly and attentive. The White Pizza appitizer was super. Very cripy thin crust, nice and garlicy and cheesey. We had side pasta since I could not decide what I wanted. The pasta with clams was very different, it was a bit creamy and thick.... More

I have been to this restaurant many, many times over a 14 year period. I have tried a lot of the menu items...at least 1/2 of the menu. I think overall the food is very good, especially the Italian dishes and the fish and pizza. I'm not crazy over the steak sandwich which is what I just tried again to... More

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
