They have good food but are way over priced! You get a small portion of food for a lot of money. They have always been over priced.

Great coffee - good vibe...I will go back there! It is close to everything in Interlochen. I know one man we met there who calls Bud's his "mobile office".

They didn't have very many people inside for a Sat night. Now we know why, my husband's hamburg was the worst one he has ever had! We waited over 15 mins for a bad hamburg and a dry chicken Caesar wrap. We were shocked they don't have french fries or onion rings either just tasteless chips.

Atmosphere is cute, awesome decor. Staff was far from friendly or welcoming. Menu is super limited for breakfast which is a bummer. Eggs were disgusting, very slimy and tasted funky. Expensive for portions also, no options for sides.

Bud's is nearby, but we don't go enough. The sandwiches were great. The ice cream was delicious and we wandered around the store looking at the pictures and all the cute items for sale. It's always a treat.

Visited again this year after my son's concert. This year we stopped with the whole family on our way home. My wife and I had burgers, which were very tasty. My son and daughter had sandwiches, which they both said were very good numerous times. I can see why Bud's has the #1 rating in Interlochen, it's well deserved.

Whenever I am visiting the Interlochen area, Bud's is always one of the first places we visit for delicious, quality food. We have been here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between. The preparation and quality of the food is excellent. The staff is always friendly. The gift shop area always has neat items of interest. I highly recommend... More

We come here often when we're in the area, the food is always fresh and very good. brownies, muffins, etc are delicious, we can never resist them. The chili is tasty, not too spicy, but lots of flavor.

We stopped by for dinner after spending a day exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes. You order at the counter here, and then they bring your food to you. We all thought the food was good. Three of us had hamburgers, and they were very tasty. My daughter had a salad, and it was good for what it was. We all had... More

We chose Bud's because of the outdoor seating and we could have the dog with us. You order the food inside and they bring it to you. Good quality food with some unique combinations. A large selection of coffee's and a ice cream area. Staff are wonderfully friendly. There is a small store to look around before/after you order. This... More
