Not only the best Seafood in town and clam chowder but their non fish entire's are great too. I especially like Buds beef, marinated filet mignon and served grilled in strips. The chicken Marsala is excellent and if you are in the mood for a hamburger his is the best in town. Juicy and cooked... read more

The chicken Marsala is excellent and if you are in the mood for a hamburger his is the best in town. Juicy and cooked perfectly.

Bud's has been our restaurant of choice over many years. The best clam chowder outside of Tadish's in San Francisco. Always consistent. Love their huge crab louie and when they are on the menu, the halibut, petrole sole, and trout are fresh and saute'd perfectly. Always recomment it to others. They also serve wonderful fresh large portions of sour dough... More

Excellent Seafood and not from a chain; no cattle car feeling (Rush).Enjoyable atmosphere, friendly staff .If seafood is not one of your group's choice, then The BUDS BEEF will put a big smile on their face. Other selections will do the same.

If you like your fish breaded and fried you'll love this place. Hubby had the special- breaded snapper. Just ok. I had calamari parmigiana. It was good but the potato was just that. Baked and blah.

Ordered a Ceasar salad , tasted like oil and vinegar, everyone at the table tasted it and said oil and vinegar asked the waitress she said that is their Ceasar. Service was non existent except for the Busboy that I recognized from Stockton Joes years... More

We recently visited relatives in nearby Manteca and they suggested this place for lunch.They were very busy during our weekday lunch there. They had a fairly extensive menu with something for everyone. We had a great waitress who never missed as beat, if a plate was empty it was promptly removed. Our group of 4 had a caesar salad, steak... More

I was traveling to Stockton on a business trip with other co-workers who had been in Stockton for several weeks prior to my arrival. I could not believe they had not been to Bud's. We ordered the fried oysters and fried green tomatoes as appetizers. Both were very good and had a very good presentation. I ordered the Pesto stuffed... More

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. We had a delicious meal. We began with some delicious sour dough French bread and butter. Next we had the house salad. Great tasting salad dressing. I had Thousand Island and my husband had Bleu Cheese. We both felt the dressing was the best tasting dressing. My husband had rib eye... More
