My son and I traveled to Annapolis and decided to try the Saturday Seafood Buffet for $24.95 each. What a waste of money! We are not picky eaters at all, but were hard pressed to find anything extraordinary. The "seafood" on the buffet was horrible. Dried out salmon and non-existent crab in the crab imperial and crab balls. The seafood... More

My experience here was okay, only one server on a Thursday night. Food came out at a decent time, but it was bland. Not a lot of taste to it. I had a chicken burger topped with crab and crab dip; the crab was tasteless and almost nonexistent. Someone else ordered a crab cake and they said it was the... More

If you happen to be in Annapolis and want to go somewhere that has good Maryland style crab cakes, come here. The food is very good especially the crab cakes and the prices are moderate yet reasonable especially if you are really in to getting good sea food in Annapolis and they have a very good beer selection on draft...

My group collectively spent an evening at Buddy's restaurant for a private event last month. We were treated to a generous buffet that included a wide variety of surf and turf dishes. The décor of the restaurant was casual in its nautical theme. A good experience of American East Coast offerings.

I have been to both locations of Buddy's (Annapolis and Ocean City) and both were absolutely delicious. Actually my husband and I often find ourselves saying, "Man could I go for some Buddy's" Great atmosphere, even better food.

Stopped in for lunch on a dreary Saturday and have to say the service was wonderful and looking out over the main square of Annapolis lends itself to a nice meal overall. The crab cake was truly wonderful - virtually no filler and the aioli was a nice balance. Fries however (advertised as boardwalk fries) are good but certainly not... More

We came here as a work lunch, we had employees from out of town and brought them here for a lunch maryland style. Wish we had gone somewhere else. The food was just ok, the service could have been a lot better. There was hardly anyone there eating (3pm) but we could not get the attention of our server, no... More

Casual dining upstairs dining overlooking Main Street and waterfront. Limited craft beer selection. Extensive menu of sandwiches, salads, pasta, entrees, ribs. Entrees come with salad. Very fast service - didn't wait long for soup salad or entree. Good portions. Good service. Prices are a little high, but now worse than elsewhere. The Maryland crab soup delicious.

My family ate here during a recent visit. Although there is a buffet we ordered off the menu. Kids under 10 eat free with purchase of adult entre. Service was good. Food was okay. View is nice from window seat and tvs allowed my husband and boys to get football scores during meal. Nothing stood out about this one but... More

Being on the coast my daughter wanted to try all the seafood. Buddy's had a seafood buffet for $24 you could try oysters, crab, shrimp, crawfish, gumbo and much more! Couldn't have tried it all for that price anywhere else off a menu. Mashed potato, macaroni, and breaded shrimp was awesome! Great atmosphere looking over the dock and town.
