Food very good. Budd Bay has always been a sure bet re food. Service was great.
Do feel that it is time they do a retrofit. Beautiful location although very worn look.
We will return although it will be a while. Really looking very run down.

We had a good meal, but the service was VERY slow and the ambiance is just average. The setting is very pleasant - on the water facing a small marina, with outdoor seating available if weather allows.

Budd Bay Cafe is the best restaurant in Olympia, and has been consistently good for over 25 years.
We have never had an meal we didn't enjoy, brunch through late evening meal. Summer time dining on the dock is a special treat, while a warm dinner inside for winter is equally beautiful. Budd Bay Cafe is a must, for Olympia dining.

Nice place, very good food. Drinks are fine. Waiter/Bartender overworked. View to the water and marina. Clean bathrooms.

Great place for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. The spread for brunch is impressive. Great for groups and out-of-town guests. Really comfortable ambience. A little upscale but not at all stuffy. Nice menu with a variety of choices. Everything we've tried has been delicious. Steak, seafood, chicken and pasta have all been done really well. One of my favorites is the seafood saute over spinach. They offer sherry with their clam chowder. Take them up on the offer...yum. Good sized portions. You won't go hungry. It's in a great walkable area. You can walk along Percival landing and the bay. Walk over to the farmers market Thursday through Sunday in season. It's a local, go-to favorite nice resturant.
