Fried food but a good bar bring in locals, dining room is old brown carpet and heavy wood tables, did I say fried food? They're out of business now, when they divided rt. 1 it killed their business.

Bud's Hut was closed and knocked down last month after many years in business. Tripadvisor needs a better way for reviewers to share info when businesses close, they are making me write 100 characters for this.

Bud's Hut has very good food and always plenty left to take home for the next days lunch. My wife raves about the cocktails. I gave it only 3 stars because service is hit and miss. You can wait awhile to be seated even though no one is in front of you. Also the waitress can be painfully slow, aka,... More

From the outside, Bud's looks like a dive. The good news is that when you get inside, you aren't disappointed - you get exactly what you expect. The night we were there, the main dining room was closed, so we were seated at a booth in the bar area. The place was nearly empty. The backdoor was open, and there... More

I have been going here for over 40 years and the place has gone down hill especially lately. The Delmonico steak which has been a staple here is now just a piece of grizzle and fat. My wife who has always been a fan of their scallops and seafood got sick. Its time for a renovation, a change of chefs... More

I still like their steaks and its one of the few places that know how to cook scallops properly. But the prices are a bit high considering the amount of food you get. when i go out to eat i look for good food at a reasonable price, and good service. A clean restroom is also a big plus. The...

Overpriced, mediocre appetizer & entry. Atmosphere is old with a loud karaoke bar next to the dinning room. Service was a little slow & manager took a few bucks off a dinner for a too fatty steak. Now I remember why we stopped going there years ago.

My husband, our friends, and I went here last night for dinner. There was no waiting to be seated because there were only two other tables being used. We sat down and about 10 minutes later another party came in. Now mind you there was only four tables occupied and one waitress. We got our salads, drinks and bread within... More

The people at the hotel nearby recommended this place since we like to try mom and pop restaurants rather than chains when on the road. I ate here two nights while in the area. The place is nothing fancy and the salad and seafood a bit bland. We sat in the dining room but the bar area seemed a bit... More
