Buddy V’s Ristorante
We arrived 45 minutes before our reservation time and were enthusiastically accomodated. The food was great although somewhat pricey. The noise level was extreme and could probably be reduced by more acoustically sensitive interior design.
We’ve been to Buddy V’s a few times now and have always had good food until this last visit. Not sure what happened in between visits but the food is no longer as good as it’s been. I had the shrimp scampi and there was no flavor, none. The butter tasted fake, almost like movie theater butter. I couldn’t even really finish because I could feel my stomach getting upset. My husband had the Sunday Dinner and it was just okay. The meatballs tasted like they may have been store bought? Overall the service was good but we felt rushed. We came in at 6:00 and by 6:30 we had all 3 courses we ordered sitting on our table. Thank god it was a big table. I’m really bummed from this experience. When a staff member came to check on us we asked if the menu had changed and she had stated it had been changed. Maybe it was just an off night, I don’t know. Just very disappointed.
In comparison to my last visit, this visit was awesome. Food was great, service by Andrea was excellent.
We ate here before but never sat out in the casino area before. That was fun and good for people watching.
Pasta delicious and generous portions.
Everything was great. Went with my granddaughter. She enjoyed the foo
Food was delicious! Our server was great! She was very busy because it’s located in a casino, but we still got top service from her!!! Five stars from me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Food was delicious as it always is We will definitely eat here again
Always a great experience! One of my preferred spots to dine.
I was not happy with the shrimp scampi lunch that was brought to me; I asked for extra garlic and actually, I don't think there was any garlic at all. I mentioned it to our wait-person and she said she would let them know in the kitchen. She DID offer to bring the meal back and/or bring some garlic to me so I could add it to my meal. I declined both offers; I rarely send any meal back to the kitchen and I would not add anything to my meal once it had been served to me. That clearly is not what I like to do when I am out for lunch/dinner.
We will go back to Buddy V's however, I would not order the shrimp scampi again.
Great food, very inexpensive. Just know that the restaurant is located inside the casino and anyone under the age of 21 requires an escort that will stand outside the restaurant waiting. There are also no bathrooms. This is not a restaurant flaw, just want to make patrons aware because I was surprised since they even have a children’s’ menu. Try the Nutella cake! It was amazing!
Very impressed with the food and service at BuddyV’s. I will definitely come back.
enjoyable experience. Try the lasagna nachos!!!!!!
The noise level was ridiculous...VERY loud! The shrimp scampi was terrible. Very bland. Was supposed to be done in a lemon wine sauce. All you could taste was oil. Will not be going back
Had reservations but they seated us outside... asked for inside they said there were no tables inside but I counted at least 4 empty tables
The service was impeccable and the food was delicious!
Take it from an Italian who’s father was a head chef. The food is horrible however our waitress was wonderful.
The food was great. We had the garlic cheese bread and the cheese ravioli. The pace felt a bit rushed and the replay of the Daytona 500 from last year wasn’t exactly mood setting. Tables were a bit close together. The taste of the good outweighed the negatives.
The food was ok. The portion size was really good. Had enough to take home for dinner the next night. Drinks are a little pricey. Our waitress was very attentive but the main course was really slow like they may have forgot. Both tables on our side sat down right before us and had dinner, desert and left before our main course came out. Our waitress kept apologizing and they gave us desert and asked that we come back and give them another try. Desert wasn’t sufficient enough for me to give them another opportunity. Plenty of other restaurants in the area that I would give my $150 to before them.
First visit to Wind Creek. Your restaurant was a great choice & we hope to visit again soon!
The food was great and the service was excellent. The Ristorante was very clean.
Always a wonderful experience and excellent service
Sorry to see Sarah go 😢
Great food with plenty of choices on the menu. Try the lasagna nachos!!!
Great place to eat if you don't like the prices at the other restaurants in the casino. Portions were so large we each had a salad then split the entree. Wanted to try the chocolate covered cannoli but was running late for the show.
Dinner was great! We went before the show and they spaced out everything nicely so we had some time to head to the event center.
This is not the first time we have been there, so based on the past experiences I would recommend them, but not based on this time. This time was a little disappointing. We were seated at a small table for 2 in a small area by the bar and given a very small limited menu. Shortly after we ordered another couple was seated in the same area, at a table for 4 and given a full menu. Just as we received our food another couple was also seated at a table for 4 and given a full menu. I would have liked to have table for 4 and the room the other 2 couples got, especially since that area was empty except the 3 of us couples. I didn't want to start a fuss but I'm curious why we were given the small limited menu when the others had full menus.
The overall dining was ok I was sitting next to a grown person who was playing a video game on his phone very loud so I felt I couldn't relax with the noise other than that dining was ok .
Food was excellent. Server was very attentive. We explained that we had show tickets and she was aware that we needed to leave by a specific time. Didn’t rush us, but made sure we had our check in plenty of time.
Love the food!!
The food was all excellent. Especially enjoyed the Lasagna Nachos. Our waitress was friendly, polite and on point. Had a fantastic dinner. Will definitely go there again.
My mother’s 86 birthday
Very nice restaurant, good food and friendly staff
Server was great. The food was amazing and with me having weight loss surgery was very understanding about me splitting a meal with my mom! Overall great experience and will return! Thank you
Have been there many times and it was always enjoyable. The lasagna nachos appetizer were very good. However, the swordfish special had no flavor. The linguini with clams were very good. Assuming it was just a misstep on the swordfish.
Nice place with good service. Food was ok. My husband and I expected more considering the price.
Having previously dined at Buddy V's at this location before I figured I would revisit with my family as we were in the area. Never again. Someone needs to do a Undercover Boss episode at this restaurant.
Service, Food and Food temperature need to be looked into more closely. The only plus was the 2 young hostesses at the front entrance who were warm and inviting and accommodated a table change request with little or no hesitation.
Our server was very patient with us as we were talking and not ordering our food! The food was great!
We always love sharing the lasagna and caesar salad. Excellent service and a good value at Wind Creek.
Waitress was wonderful! However, table placement was not optimal. Anniversary dinner was noted as to the reason via OpenTable. We wee placed at a table in the center of the room, with two different parties with youngsters in very close proximity. Not optimal searing for an anniversary dinner.
My boyfriend called and reserved a table on half hours notice. We had no trouble as it was an early dinner. We both enjoyed our dinner. The service was great. The lasagna was very good. Would definitely return!
