The location of Buddy's is great and has an open air patio that faces Topsail Beach and the pier. Great spot for a drink while watching surfers and taking in the beach. The food however is not that good. I went twice and was disappointed...More
I've been going there for years. The food is ok, it's pricey for what you get. Good little place to be able to sit by the beach and watch the waves. Drinks are good.
I like to go here for a drink and watch everyone on the beach - the bar maid wasn't very attentive though - the second time we went we ended up leaving - we ordered more drinks and the bar maid started getting drinks for...More
