“Good menu”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Buddie's in Okemos has a nice menu and good service. It's a great place to watch a game. They have a nice Sunday brunch also.

“Stay away unless you have hours to spend at lunch”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

This has to be my worst ever lunch experience. We arrived at 12:05. There were three tables of guests. Menus were brought, and drink orders taken. We promptly had our order taken and drinks served. Our server was not busy, but did not come near our table, avoided eye contact even. We then proceeded to wait 50 minutes for our food, which was cold, and incorrect. I had ordered sweet potato fries for an up charge. I received limp, cold regular fries. I had ordered a turkey bacon club wrap. It arrived with no bacon?? We did not get a drink refill. The bill was incorrect when we got it. Never again will I eat here!

“Buffalo burgers!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Great for bar food; even better for buffalo burgers. Friendly, comfortable (especially outside in warm weather), and nice.

“Solid Place”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

I've been going to Buddies -- the Lake Lansing/Hagadorn location -- for many years. It's a solid family-type sports bar, and has many regulars. Too many televisions for my taste, but that's pretty standard anywhere you go...
We tend to get very good service; being regulars probably helps. The food is a notch above "regular" bar food, and when it's good, it's really good. When they've busy and the kitchen is a little "off," it's still OK.
They know how to grill or braise pork chops, and their wraps and salads are good. The Chicken Fiesta Wrap is delicious, esp. for $8 with fries.
Prices are very reasonable, at least for food; the beer selection is somewhat limited, and microbrews get spendy pretty quickly. Make sure you know what the 'special' is lest you pay more for a pint than for a 22-oz. mug.
Nobody will ever accuse Buddies of being 'hip,' but for a place to go have a burger and a beer, you can do a lot worse. I certainly have, especially in East Lansing ;->
