I haven't been to Buddie's for quite a while because there are just so many choices. However, I decided to take my daughter and son-in-law there for their anniversary. I was surprised to see how much they have expanded. Unfortunately their prices kind of expanded, too. Not terribly expensive but certainly a lot more than the last time we were... More

From SC and this is our 2nd trip down and this is a must to eat. The steak is so good with bacon wrapped shrimp toppings. Mac/Cheese is an amazing side as well. Oyster appetizers and best around we have tasted.

Was told by friends to try Mac and cheese it was very good. I had the bone in pork it was about 2 inches think and very juicy with a nice... More

My daughter took me here for my birthday, they had atleast 2 Parties booked. Took over 3 hours to be seated, receive our meal and checked out. ( only waited 20-30 minutes for table ) Service was horrible, food was really bad! Steaks had burnt particles on them, only warm at the best, salads had way to much dressing, bread... More

We've been missing Buddies because they never seen open when we want to go there until tonight. I never need to eat here again. The BBQ shrimp had a runny sauce with anorexic shrimp. I had a picture of what it used to look like, but the waitress was unimpressed. The wedge salad was okay. The dessert was lame. It... More

We returned recently after not visiting for a while. Buddies has a nice - although not huge - selection of food. Service is consistently good. We were delighted to see the completed renovation of the main dining room - warm and welcoming. Steak tips, salmon, and bacon-wrapped shrimp are perennial favorites. It's a nice place to relax with friends, have... More

Good food in a casual atmosphere. My family enjoys the steak tips on Tuesday nights. Seafood potatoes are a must try!

This is definitely worth the stop. I had the tuna. Its the first time i have ever eaten tuna it was wonderful. My husband had the bacon wrapped shrimp and it was to die for. Our waitress Hope was wonderful and so sweet. The whole staff was very friendly. Will definitely be stopping by again next time we pass through.

Buddies is a great place. I have a friend with deep roots in the Pumpkin Center/Ponchatoula/Hammond Metropolitan Area. Whenever I find myself there with time to eat, I ask him for advice. This year he recommended I try Buddies and that's what I did. While the name suggests this is more of an adult themed establishment, it was a full... More

We decided to try Buddies based on the reviews and friend's recommendations. We went on a Saturday night around 6:00 and there were only two other tables occupied in the main restaurant, there apparently was a private gathering in the back as I could see people going back there as we ate. The waitress was very friendly and suggested their... More
