Absolutely love going here. Great beer selection and good food.
Only thing is I wish the service was a little faster.

It was great. The wait staff is great but seemed a bit to overwhelmed at points. Get the bottom less Mimosa! Food was great and everything was tasty. Great find. It was just our first time but we will... be back!! *update* Their customer service is great. I left something at the restaurant and they found it and holding it. It's not about just finding it but how they stayed in touch and actually helped me without saying "no we don't have it." Nice job Buddies!! See More

Buddy's Bites and Brews is a good restaurant with the decor of a beach house. I had the oysters and the clam chowder in a bread bowl. I asked for the oysters to come out first and they did. Just as I ...finished the oysters the clam chowder came out. Perfectly timed. I ordered a hard cider and they let me try this first before I ordered my meal. The cider they have is really good and tastes great with the sea food that I ordered. I then decided to order dessert. The dessert menu doesn't have much but then again they are in the middle of fixing up the menu. So I think that I will give Buddy's Bites and Brews a four out of five stars. See More

I feel really bad not giving my regular excellent review. But regretfully our last couple visits have yielded such. The food is still very good. And the waiter staff is very friendly. But my issue is ..."time". The last couple times we've been there we've actually seen people leave because the time between ordering our food and receiving it has been to long. And this is during a not busy time of day. After a lengthy wait we were then told that an important component to our choice had to be thrown out. In their defense they did not charge for the replacement choice. � See More

I always like this place. Fun menu... Plus our waiter was totally cool with us taking up space to watch the game and just chill... We were there for a couple hours. My girl met up with us and she came at the end and she was able to chill too. Everyone is ridiculously friendly! Plus the little games they have are cool.

I'd say get some more fun table games!
Aaannnd have chicken options for the pork items on the menu just cause my honey doesn't eat pork but that's it!
Food is bomb otherwise!

The fish and chips was gross, really oily with oregano taste in batter. The service was horrible. I got my food 30min later because waitress got my order wrong. On top of that big major issue for me a camera right on top of baby changing table. Wth is that, no privacy for my toddler for everyone too see. They placed baby changing table in between men n woman bathroom. There is enough room to be placed inside the woman's bathroom. This is uncalled for!!! Never returning to this place again. See More

Buddy's Bites and Brews is our new spot. We went last night with our three children. Tonight just the hubby and I. It's a fun place. The staff are attentive, friendly and AWESOME ! They have the best made Cesar salad dressing. The guacamole is house made as well. Onolicious! See More

Super tasty and super friendly. I have yet to have a bad experience here. I've had the clam chowder, the crab sandwich, and the meatball sandwich - all of which I've thoroughly enjoyed.

They also h...ave amazing hot wings. The strawberry flavor in the sauce is awesome and like nothing I've had anywhere else.

If you're in the area I say stop by.

The food was really good, not too many people in there so why did it take a bit longer than the norm to get our food? Will I go back...yes. Hopefully it won't take too long next time.

I came to Buddy's after a ballgame with my son. I asked if we could order food and a beer. They have me the late menu and said we had to order from that. We order and they brought one part of our orde...r . I asked for anothe beer and was told sorry it's 1101. My original beer was a short pour anyway. They suck period! in the service and food quality.

Do not have the Turkey and Avocado sandwich. Nothing but process Turkey, far too much mayo. Just a poor excuse for a sandwich. Plus after eating it my sister did not feel well. The strawberry lemonade... was good. As was the fish and chips. Been there before and had the fish tacos, which were good. I think it is time they roast their own Turkey and slice it up in house. It is not a hard thing to do. See More

Ok, I'm going to be honest. This is not really my type of place. The decor doesn't appeal to me, the music isn't my style either. But the food is pretty darn good. The beer is also very good. I'm ...still waiting to find the perfect match of beer and food. I've had two really good meals, and good beverage with each, but considering I was sharing a pipe line with a friend who had a completely different meal, my beverages didn't quite complement my food, but still darn tasty in its own right.

I was able to do the four horseman wing challenge and succeeded, although it was quite painful later. I returned again today to eat some of the food off the menu which was great! I wish I didn't have drive 2 hrs home or I would have taken advantage of the good selection of craft beers they have. Next time I am in Hayward, I am definitely coming back! See More

The staff was friendly, the food served promptly AND hot.
The only con for this establishment is the noise level. As an "mature gentleman" <grin> I find it difficult to hear my guests conversations wh...en an loud ambient noise level. See More

They throw it down . . . And then they throw it down some more!! The strawberry jalapeño ribs are perfectly seasoned and glazed with a delectable sauce and the meat falls right off the bones, and the... chum basket, a cornucopia of perfectly breaded and fried seafood which includes cod, calamari, scallops, and large shrimp is served with very delicious dipping sauces and are all about dying and going to heaven!! This place is bliss for foodies and beer lovers!! Sundays kids eat free so I'm going back with the kids soon!! See More

The food is great....the fish and burgers way above average. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. There's TVs everywhere so you never miss a play, and the beer selection is excellent and ever c...hanging, with a full bar if you need something stronger. Love it! See More
