Menu and hours are too limited, what we had was good & staff are certainly friendly. They've been open for awhile now with plans to open a children's play area but it hasn't happened. You get the feeling that you're eating in an 'under construction site'. There's too much open space, it made me... read more

on our way from Miami to Orlando we stopped at Lake Placid, Fl. and ended up at Chef Buddy's. The owner confessed that her grandparents were Dutch but the food was definitely Italian. We loved the subs and the Italian sausage.

This place is ideal if you want to grab lunch in Lake Placid. It has that local charm I really enjoy when entering cities and towns along the ride. Spotless clean, friendly staff, good prices and tasty food. Pay attention to the time, they close at 2pm on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays. Isn't it good when you go... More

There lasagna is the best. We order it by the tray for parties or large family gatherings. You will not be disappointed with any item from the menu. There meats are good too. Try the filets for grilling. If you stop by for lunch, try the meatball sandwich, Italian sausage sandwich is also excellent. The seating area is small, so... More

The meatball sub is too good to be true. I also love the roast beef, and the spaghetti and meatballs is delicious. Everything I've ever tried here has been great. Nice place with great staff. Definitely family friendly.
