Great liitle place!

This is a great little bar with some awesome food options. We had the buffalo shrimp and a burger with fries. The buffalo shrimp appetizer was good and the shrimp were large, but the portion size was a bit small. The burger was awesome and so were the fries. We have been here several times and... read more

Get pint glasses for your draft beer and some friendlier bar tenders and the six of us would probably come back.

Bud's is for folks who want to smoke in public and get small, expensive drinks. The place was crowded with young (and surprisingly well dressed) people... it was very loud. I have heard the burgers there are great... I just can't bring myself to eat in a place filled with smoke though.

We stopped in this local bar. The bartenders were Ryan and Bubba. Both of them were excellent and very friendly. The place is nice with a couple of pool tables and an old fashioned hand shuffleboard game on one side of the bar. Very interesting place and very nice. Only thing is if you do not smoke cigarettes then you... More

Bud's is foremost a bar. If you don't like smoke and the bar atmosphere it is not for you. The kitchen closes at 9. The ham burgers really are something to try in Montgomery. They are cooked just right and taste perfect.

The Kobe beef burger here is the best burger in the state...possibly anywhere. There's nothing else to say. It is incredible.

I've dined here several times and found the bar staff to be excellent, and the Kobe beef burgers outstanding. My wife even sent me back the next day for another Kobe burger takeout. Recommend getting it with swiss cheese and the thick cut fries. Ambiance is local character with a touch of elegance, located in the charming Old Cloverdale district.... More
