Went for Sunday brunch and there was a great variety of foods (made to order omelettes; mini crab cakes, french toast, chicken skewers, seafood gumbo, desserts, etc) and the quality / taste was superb. An excellent deal for about $16 per person. Get a window...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.

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

So I took my family here while visiting Annapolis because I never could afford it as a Midshipmen at the Naval Academy. I would say for a family style place, Buddy's is pretty good. Similar to many bar/restaurant combos, it is relatively informal and able...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.
