Buddies has a different special every night, and excellent menu food. But where it excels is with its fantastic waitstaff. I haven't had a server in the past several years who was not kind, attentive, personable and informative. Buddies has become a weekly or semi-monthly destination for us for several years.

We went here on St. Patricks Day for drinks and food. The DJ was playing good music and takes requests. Nice size dance floor. I liked the layout and decor. Food was good too.

Wide selection of food offerings from burgers to full, home styled meals. A great place to go when there are multiple sports that you want to simultaneously follow as they have enough TV's for everyone's favorite team. We've visited mostly on Sunday Afternoons/Evenings, so not too busy, but were able to watch the Lions (Boo) and the Patriots beat Dallas... More

The food at Buddies is well prepared and tasty, portions are generous (but they have smaller versions of some items for lighter eaters), and prices are easy on the wallet. As befits a sports bar, there are television sets scattered all around the restaurant and bar area. They have a decent-sized patio when weather permits. The staff are friendly and... More

Generous portions, everyone can always find something to eat. Several locations, all slightly different in menu and specials, but owned by the same family. Our "go to" place when we can't decide or don't want to eat at home.

Buddie's in Okemos has a nice menu and good service. It's a great place to watch a game. They have a nice Sunday brunch also.

This has to be my worst ever lunch experience. We arrived at 12:05. There were three tables of guests. Menus were brought, and drink orders taken. We promptly had our order taken and drinks served. Our server was not busy, but did not come near our table, avoided eye contact even. We then proceeded to wait 50 minutes for our... More
