Stopped in to Buddy’s Clubhouse for dinner. Prime rib was delicious and so was the catfish collars. Salad dressings were homemade and the homemade soup was delicious. Owners and wait staff were great. Can’t say enough good things about this place. Great dining experience.

The food was great, and the train running near the ceiling was neat. Very shady looking part of town, not sure if I would go there again due to that fact. But it is one of those old time steak houses we enjoy, so it...More
