“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant has been in business a long time but we had never been there before. After trying it recently, we have been back 3 more times.
The service has been excellent and the restaurant very clean with a variety of things on the menu. Their Bud's beef is one thing they are known for and it is excellent, very tender, and full of flavor. The dinner salad is huge and comes with the dinner. For a added fee you can add bay shrimp to your salad which I highly recommend. The fish I have had has been very good. You certainly get enough food for your money and the prices are moderate.

“Great dinner, great service, great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were headed back to Oakland and we reached Stockton around dinner time. We decided on Buds since we were in mood for clam chowder and it was recommended per trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. We were there for happy hour so the pricing was very reasonable for CA. I had the Buds beef which was very tender and flavorful. My husband had the rainbow trout which was also tasty and well cooked. We both had a cup of clam chowder which was thick and full of goodies. We finished our meal with the pots de creme. It was very good and disappeared quickly. Oh...and the sour dough was also perfect.

I should also mention the service was very atentive and friendly.

“Top notch food top notch service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I've had brunch, lunches, many dinners and even had their "Bud's beef" catered. Consistently wonderful. If you like fish it is always perfectly prepared.
Highest recommendations, and I'm kinda picky.

“Sand dabs, wine, coffee and desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Best seafood restaurant in the area. Good wine list and menu is full of excellent choices. It's in Lincoln Center with very good parking in front of the bar and entrance.
