“Ok nothing special”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Stopped here on our way through Castleton.The diner has nice decor and the music was spot on.We had Ranch burgers and one portion of fries which were ok but as in my title nothing special for me to want to come back.Staff and service was good and the ice creams look good.Toliet was poor.Just ok.

“One of the best Burgers I have had.”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

At last, someone get's it . A burger is not something to be churned out without respect. The Buddy Burger is so good. The bread bun is sweet and chewy (in the right way). Crisp bacon, juicy meat oozing with melted salty blue cheese. Respect is due here.

Would be nice if there was some outdoor sitting. Nice local but if you have a dog (as a lot of ramblers will have and you are on a great rambling route) they have to wait outside (of course) hence the outdoor seating request.

I can not to be back.

“lovely cappuccino”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We visited on Monday 8th April 2014 to do some field work for a Geography assesment at Kirk Hallam Community Technology & Sports College. We sat for hours in the warmth and comfort of the restaurant, enjoying chips, burgers and cappuccino's. The variety of American sweets was broad and enjoyable. I would highly reccomend Buddy's to any visitor. The wonderful and Jovial staff also made for a leisurely atmosphere.

“Fantastic food, service and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

I really don't agree with any of the negative comments in other reviews about Buddy's American themed Diner in Castleton!!! Maybe those people were having a bad day in general or don't get out much!?
I visited Buddy's with a walking friend today, Sunday 6th of April and was greeted by the friendly welcoming smiles of its owner Jade and her staff...
Both myself and friend were spoilt for choice as to what to order... Each meal described on the menu was as tempting as the next one, and all at reasonable prices too!
I must add that the food arrived quick and was well cooked and delicious, and of ample portions!
It was money and time well spent in my opinion! I would highly recommend you visit Buddy's when next in Castleton!!
