I have already reviewed this local favorite of ours, but we visited again for dinner and wanted to post an update for a different meal and some more pictures. This time we visited for dinner about 8pm on a snowy night and the place was pretty busy. Live music being played that was pretty good. We started with an appetizer... More

Many people love this casual place. On my visit I didn't but it was my own fault. I ordered nachos and they came with BBQ pork. The idea sounded good but the pork was covered in a sweet BBQ sauce that IMHO, just didn't belong on nachos. I think plain bbq pork would have been tasty. The people with me... More

We live nearby and visit this place somewhat frequently but I have yet to write a review. Typically we visit for lunch or dinner and drinks, but this time was for breakfast. It was late, around 11:30 am, but there breakfast on Sunday is served till 2pm so we were in luck. It was a Seahawks gameday and the place... More

We stopped by there on a Sunday afternoon for some shuffleboard. We had ice cold drinks and for eats we ordered the clams and mussels appetizer. It was so fresh and delicious. The broth was really good and had nice crusty bread for dipping it up. We all liked it so much we ordered a second order! Really nice.

Retired about 1 1/2 years ago and now meet weekly with former colleagues for lunch. We have worked our way through numerous restaurants, taverns, food trucks, and sandwich shops. Introduced to Buzz's Bar & Grill 2 months ago and have returned 3 times. Possibly our favorite spot. Great outdoor deck with view overlooking Mud Bay. Extensive menu and the food... More

This is a popular local watering hole in a very interesting location. The food and drink are what you would expect, but the place is right on Mud Bay, which deserves its name at low tide but is beautiful at high tide. I'd guess that 80% of the patrons are regulars but the place isn't anti new person.

Thursday night "open mic", always friendly staff. Decent food and a relaxing place to stop and hang out, some good music to boot.

They have a great outdoor patio on the water. A huge menu for a small bar. Appetizers and pizza were great. Weather you get all the toppings or just one the price is the same.

2 disabled people who went to have lunch there were refused service for no stated reason - recommend going elsewhere - like Annie's for example. Female manager lost this local business a lot of money! Never going again.

We drive by here all the time but have never stopped until one of our friends was singing and playing his guitar here a few days ago. It was a pretty nice day and there were people on the deck and the servers were very nice and the food we had was good too. They have a nice clientele. We... More
