Timing was wrong to eat here, but the meals that others had looked really good. Very friendly place to visit for a cool one. Located in centre of Manson Village, very clean place. Many of the visitors that frequent Buddy's are from the upscale/pretentious nearby resort and this is reflected in the prices, which are a little higher than the... More

Great place for a drink! A bit funky and definitely a locals hang out. The food is good. Can be a bit greasy. The homemade french fries are a decadent treat!

This rating is not to compare to fancy restaurants -- this is a bar. When my wife and I entered, the first reaction was turn around quick. But the employees were exceedingly friendly, as were the patrons. My patty melt was as good as they get. The fries are, I think, hand cut, and are dry, soft, and hot. They... More

This place looks run down and dark inside but we thought we would give it a try. We sat outside and the tables weren't wiped down. When our hamburgers came they were stacked with extra crispy onion rings, the buns were fresh and loaded with fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese, sauce and more onion rings. The food was well presented and... More

Buddy's is a local hangout that has great music and karaoke most weekends during the summer and fall. Their drinks are big and cheap and its all around a fun place to go. Mingle with the locals and vacationers alike -- But mostly have FUN!!

A "must" on your trip to the Lake Chelan Area. Just up the road to Manson. It's a tavern/bar type place. Nothing fancy, but WOW, the food is great. The burgers are humongous (ya might think about sharing one). Real, homemade French fries, seasoned just right. One in our party had the fish "N" chips. That too was great. One... More

The rating would be worse if not for the decent service and beer. The food was horrible. We tried a couple of items off the menu plus the daily special. I would bet that the food was purchased from the frozen department at Walmart. On a plus side, the service was quite good.
