It's been years since I patronized Budd Bay Cafe. Years ago, they were a fabulous restaurant. They had a walk up window where you could buy a cup of their clam chowder to go, which really was great on one of our gray, rainy days....More

We were looking forward to some good food and service. Overall, we had neither. It was a slow night for the restaurant, so we were seated quickly. That was the last time we could describe our service as quick. It took our server quite awhile...More

BBC has been one of the 'go to' places for family and visitor entertainment dinners for more than 20 years. The view is the best....sitting outside (when available and weather permitting) is the best location for eating on the water in Olympia.

We were not all that impressed. The food was sub par, and the prices were very expensive. Would not recommend this place for sure. The view was great though

Budd Bay is one of those places that you can go and you can always rely on getting a great meal. If it's a nice day, you can sit outside overlooking the boardwalk and the harbor.
