In the heart of Old Cloverdale, Bud's is a local mainstay. The two regular bartenders are adept at mixing most any cocktail you ask and there is a menu of standard pub grub. The food is decent, the drinks are better. This neighborhood bar draws...More

Bud's is foremost a bar. If you don't like smoke and the bar atmosphere it is not for you. The kitchen closes at 9. The ham burgers really are something to try in Montgomery. They are cooked just right and taste perfect.

I've dined here several times and found the bar staff to be excellent, and the Kobe beef burgers outstanding. My wife even sent me back the next day for another Kobe burger takeout. Recommend getting it with swiss cheese and the thick cut fries. Ambiance...More
