I am a very hard grader of restaurants, I tell it how it is and do not sugar coat. I always list pros and cons. Pros It was not easy to find anything that this restaurant had done right. I did visit twice because I had such a bad experience the first time that I visited. I was not impressed... More

My recommendation is the Sausage sandwich with all of the trimmings... More

A colleague suggested this place for a small group of us and I was not disappointed. Outstanding lunch menu - awesome salad (I had 1/2 and it was plenty). But don't expect anything fancy. A medium dinner plate filled with lettuce (covered in Buddy's dressing) with cheese and plenty of garlic!! 1/2 sausage sub dipped in their primo homemade marinara... More

Always busy, always good food. Their (Buddy's salad) house specialty salad will not disappoint! Wilted lettuce dressed in a heavy garlic and cheese dressing will have you reaching for your breath mints the rest of the day. Pasta is hand made, pizzas have a great crust texture and flavor as well as great toppings, and their sandwiches are very good!... More

Every bite is full of flavor. Starting with their salad, I always ask for them to get the wet salad at the bottom of the bowl because it has been totally saturated with their amazing salad dressing. Next I order the sausage sandwich with everything well done (love the sausage crispier), and order a side of marinara sauce to drip... More

The waitress was nice but incorrectly totalled our check, charging us $11 more before notifying us. The food was fine but not worth $20/plate. No flavor and tasted like it came from a jar. The hostess was in a basic blue t-shirt and gray sweats. Really? So unprofessional in what is priced to reflect a fine dining experience. I should... More

Buddy's was a delicious dining experience. Small, quaint ambiance. We felt welcomed at every turn. Try to get a seat in the front room/bar. Would eat there again!

We had sandwiches. They were not good. Waiter could hardly come and service our table. Felt like we were an imposition. I would not go back. Bad food and bad service don't add up to going back.
