Service was on time and the food was good. Had the Bud's Beef for $13.25 Marinated tenderloin delicious and very tender. Served with rice or potato, vegetables, bread and butter. Loved the bread

I have been to Bud's Seaford on many occasions and have truly enjoyed it. This visit wasn't up to my normal standards which I have come to enjoy. We went in after church to have a family visit and felt like we were being rushed out the door. Good service is part of the whole dining experience and yesterday was... More

We ate here as a family group a few days after Christmas. We made a reservation for an early dinner as we had people who needed to drive home out of town. We ordered off of they early bird menu. The clam chowder is the best part of any meal here, and it is offered with all of the entrees.... More

The clam chowder is so thick and packed full of goodness that I always make it a point to stop for some when in town. And don't skimp on the sourdough!

This was our visit and it just did not live up to its billing. My fish and chips were nothing special. My son in law had to send his meal back...the other meals were just so-so. We will be moving to Stockton next spring and will try Bud's again.

The service and food are always consistently excellent. We know where we are going with expectations assuredly to be filled. My Mom lives out of town and this is always here first choice when visiting. Wife and I love the Bud's Beef Salad.

What a beautiful evening. We sat outside and enjoyed the special which was a panko encrusted halibut with rosemary red potatoes, vegetables (perfectly cooked) and a lovely sauce. My husband splurged and had the seafood fettucine which he enjoyed as well. Great service and nice atmosphere. Only critique for the owners are that the menus need to be wiped down.... More

Evidently this restaurant has been around Stockton for a long while (I'm relatively new to Stockton). I can understand why -- the food and service was great! I ordered the sand dabs luncheon and it was simply delicious! Having eaten sand dabs most of my life (via Asian cooking), Bud's sand dabs was a surprise. Delicately cooked, lightly crusted, totally... More

Food is fresh and good. Clam chowder could be eaten by the gallon. Throw their french bread in, wow! Only down side is that drinks can be expensive.

May have the best seafood in town, it's just good food at a moderate price. Seafood is always fresh. Known for it's clam chowder, it sells out quickly.
