After having out order taken for burgers and soup, it was over 40 minutes before the food arrived. With two wait staff and one person behind the bar, and about 12... More

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

Here to have a meal with my family, ate the French Onion Soup; it was really salty so I couldn't actually eat the whole bowl. My mouth was pretty dry afterward. Fish & chips were ok though.

Excellent place to go. Outdoor patios and many different rooms for special occasions. The food is great and so is the service. Prices are reasonable.

Great lunch with an associate. Service was excellent and the little change requested on the daily special was accommodated in a friendly manner. You won't find a better lunch anywhere for under 10 bucks I assure you.
