Red Lobster puts this place to shame. Sllooowww service and the food was horrible. They were out of things and it was just bad quality.

This s was a fun restaurant with a great view of beautiful yachts parked in the marina from the upstairs dining room. Lots of steps, but they do have an elevator in the back - I still wouldn't recommend it for anyone with mobility issues.

We had a Groupon for Buddy's so stopped for lunch. We both did the buffet, with was solid but unspectacular. Recommend Buddy's for kids, teens, perhaps college students or young adults. It's not fine dining, so temper your expectations.

Food was mid price but the food was terrible. Buffett was cheap and cold food. I wont be back . I did come here every year but the food and service has just gotten worse.

The lunch/dinner menu has a good selection. Prices are average but this place is good for a mid day meal. They have views of the main street, the square, and the harbor here too.
