“Local Flavor”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Off the beaten track in a sketchy part of Dubuque, this restaurant isn't going to attract diners for its ambiance. It was loud the evening we were there, with tables close together so that it was easier to hear conversations around us instead of our own. The service was slow, took about 10-15 minutes to order. The food was good, my steak was done as requested. My husband enjoyed his smothered chicken. I will get a take-out order next ime

“Amazing - Supper club atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Looking for the great supper club atmosphere that over 50's remember? Buddy's is great, it offers you that atmosphere without needing to get all dressed up. The charm of the owners is without a doubt very heart felt and earnest. The drinks and food are amazing. New to Buddy's, no need to worry about "experimenting" with a new venue..you will not be disappointed.
Great food, (a salad bar made from scratch items and totally amazing), and beverages at extremely reasonable prices.
Great atmosphere, and "Sunny" is a great waitress.
I recommend the prime rib, (finished off on the grill), the fish collars, the Southern comfort old fashions, a bloody mary with a homemade horseradish pickle.
After coming to this friendly place, you will need to come back again and again.

“Great food and very friendly local familly restaurant”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Very friendly local familly restaurant with good atmosphere !
The food is very good . We had the ribs and liver. The soup of the day was asparagus. Yummy.
The kids had a lot of fun watching the train going around the restaurant.
We came in Dubuque to ski, and this dinner was the best surprise we had.
Really recommend you to go and meet the owners.

“Finally…..a decent meal in Dubuque”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Are you kidding me? It's in a super sketchy neighborhood and there is no way you would stop. It's amazing…the steaks are hand cut and the soup is so tasty. Buddy and Sunny are so welcoming and I am so glad we found this place!
