It's in the name. The burgers are great. Good fries and shakes. Service was very good. Cost was reasonable. Has an old diner type theme and feel. Likes this place.

My wife and I along with other members of our local Mustang and Ford club out of Duluth-Superior took a Sunday cruise to to see the changing leaves and to have lunch. We were led here by one of our members that has a cabin near by. The service was super and the food great. Great view of Lake Superior... More

We stopped here after walking the Ashland murals. The food was good, the waitstaff friendly and we were happy.

We loved Buddies BLTs! The ambiance was classic 50s diner with poodle-skirted waitresses, Elvis on the speakers and cozy booths. Best part was the special promo celebrating their anniversary with special 25 cent scoops of ice cream! Loved the Mackinac Island Fudge flavor. Yum!

We rented a condo across the street for a couple of days, so it was nice to use the tunnel under the main drag to walk to downtown Ashland. Without checking TripAdvisor or any other service, we decided to walk around and just pick a restaurant for breakfast. We chose Buddies and we are glad we did. It was a... More

Grand daughters wanted to get ice cream. This was my 2nd visit. Fun for all ages. Great decore. I love the names and flavored of the ice cream.

Homemade buns, real ground beef, olives. A flash back. Maybe the best Raspberry Shortcake I have ever had ! Must try it in season.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. When it was previously "The Golden Glow" we always enjoyed stopping there for breakfast or lunch. Happy to say it is still a place we can look forward to coming to. The restaurant decor is 50's diner and it is spotless. The waiter and waitresses are friendly and do a good job.... More

Amazing menu with the classic breakfast and lunch serving. Not excessively warped or deranged by some yuppie wannabee manager. This is what you want. Eggs, hash-browns, wonderful smooth rich coffee not burned, and more. You can order just one biscuit with gravy which comes with 1/2 order of meat so us fat boys still can enjoy a little of what...

We Moved!!! Now serving breakfast 6:00 to 11:00 am. And we still are a hamburger joint with chicago style hot dogs that were delicious...fries yummy, onion rings crunchy outside and perfect inside, the best chocolate shake I have had in ages. Steady flow of cutomers. Booths and tables. Clean and inviting. Owner gracious and wants to please. Stop in, you won't be disappointed!
