Previous reviews have been hit and miss - which we hadn't seen ahead of time as we might have passed on Bud's. Our experience was a positive one. Stopped in by chance on a busy Friday night on a recommendation from our hotel as one of several food places in the area. We were seated right away though the restaurant... More

We arrived there too early for a lunch, we were jetlagged and starved! The breakfast offered was big enough to take us to the diner time! The waitress has been very nice. A very good pitstop during a long drive between Toronto and Montreal!

Went to Buds on the bay for a dinner on a summers afternoon. The outdoor patio is sun filled which is nice, but you over look a huge parking lot, which leaves a little to be desired. The food was good, and our server was quite pleasant. Nothing mind blowing, but a solid 4 stars, and likely a consistent good... More

Buds usually has a special on Wednesday nights that we enjoy. Patio in the summer has a great view of Blockhouse Island and river. New pizzeria has opened, Many selections. Great staff, reasonably priced menu.

My husband and I had a dinner in this restaurant. We chose it according to other people's reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff was nice and friendly. Food was excelent and we were served very fast. We don't live in Brockville, but we would definitely visit again. The prices were reasonable too.

Then things went from ok to bad....we sat and sat and sat . After an hour of waiting and no one even acknowledging us I went up and mentioned that we... More
