On Christmas day when most of the businesses were closed, we were very relieved to find out that Buddy's is open with a reasonable price -- around $25 for all you can eat lunch. We came in without a reservation. The restaurant was packed and...More

I was looking forward to the all you could eat buffet with the snow crab legs included but the menu has changed as well as the prices. Same great food but crab legs will be sold by the pound.

After driving almost 1800 miles from Denver to Annapolis, I had been thinking of crabcakes most of the trip. My early years (many years ago!) were spent on the east coast, and some of them included trips to MD and eating crabs and crabcakes. We...More

The seafood was delicious, well prepared and fresh. The servers were nice but it took a long time to get menus and water and service was slow throughout the rest of the meal.

Went there not knowing they had a lunch buffet so we were at the end of it or I might have given it a higher rating. The food was still good, plenty to eat and choose from, good selection of deserts. Their potato chips looked...More

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.
