Not a particularly positive experience. We went to Buds for breakfast, weren't expecting anything fancy, however there was very little flavour to be had in the cheese omelet, the toast was unbuttered and was cold by the time we saw our server to ask for butter. The home fries were dry and unseasoned. Luckily it was relatively inexpensive, as it... More

We recently had our club book for Sunday breakfast, and although we had many more show up than planned, Bud's crew handled it very well. There was pleanty of coffee, and lots of good food. The service was excellent! Love it!

Breakfast was good enough, though it took a long time, considering they weren't busy. Location is convenient near the waterfront.

"on the bay" is on the harbor / marina off the St Lawrence. Pub type, but nice enough restaurant. We had lunch. Food was good. Well prepared. One order could not be prepared because they had run out. Not a problem for us, but waitress gave us both free desert later. Unexpected, but very nice.

Very cool place to go for dinner with friends and have a few drinks. Dinner was ok no complaints at all, but nothing special.

We stopped by for lunch while traveling; they were opened. We had stopped by two other restaurants that were closed. We were seated quickly but our waitress was overwhelmed. My husband went to the entryway to get menus. We got a soda and a local draft beer. Both came quickly. Getting our food took a bit longer than we expected... More

We had breakfast here and the food was excellent. Server was very nice and the food was quickly delivered. Having been to Bud's many times the best part is the rooftop patio overlooking the harbour. The location is great and there are many things to do around the restaurant. Definitely a great place to have a quick bite to eat... More

We went for a quick lunch. The food was ok. We had the "fire alarm burger", it was not spicy or hot like we were expecting and like the name would suggest. We also had a chicken burger that was supposed to be hot...but finally, not hot or spicy. Nice deck on the upper floor with lot's of space. Nice... More
