I don't know where all of you with the negative comments were raised, but in the south we are raised with several principals and one of those is if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Generally when I go out and don't enjoy myself I don't go back. Pretty simple...duh. This is one place where I can go dressed however I might be and really relax and enjoy the music and atmosphere. I don't expect more than 7 or so shrimp for lunch and fried food should be eaten in moderation unless you want to stroke. I would rather stroke dancing and having a good time than eating, personally. If you want to eat a huge meal you should be prepared to pay for it and you aren't going to get it for 5.99. Let's get real the food is good enough and I've eaten in plenty of five star resturants where the food was not to my liking, but I just don't go back. Why get on a public space and bash someone who is trying to make an honest living...including your waitress? We all have bad days now don't we? Maybe that phone call was concerning a family member ie..child,mother, grandmother, brother,sister..who knows? It's ok to judge what you hear, smell, taste, see, or feel but, don't judge other people. Do you always have a good day at work? Maybe the chef wasn't having a good day, as far as I'm concerned he was having a great day everytime I ate there. It's always a good day at Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack. Any comments? I'd love to hear them.
Is this place still open? It looked very (permanently) closed last time I walked by.
it was in good sense and spirit to buy local shrimp. however, i hate the fact that someone can take one of the most celebrated commodities of our resources and turn it into shit.
Leave Mt Pleasant's overdone/overpriced area, escape downtown's college/hoity-toity air, and you arrive in The Mill in Park Circle. Where the same beer you get at Poe's for $6.00 is $3.50, with laid back bartenders, and where real people, not name-droppers out on the playboy/playgirl prowl, just go out for a good time.
Always enjoy popping into here for a drink or three..the atmosphere is quite chill, love the tucked away tables and booths. My only wish is that they would serve more of those lovely beers in bottles, as draught beer gives me a wicked headache!!
I've only eaten here once and it was when Budiroe's (as it was then spelled) was at its old location on IOP. I'll bite my tongue on what I thought since it's been a year and a half and they may have made some big improvements with their new location. Seriously, though, this page is the strangest mixed bag of reviews. You've got displeased patrons, happy regulars and even the owner himself competing to offer their oddly different opinions. I guess its one of those places you love or hate. Either way, I always want to wish good luck to local establishments, so here's hoping they thrive at their new location.
With all these mixed reviews I thought maybe I should see if it was just a bad day or something when I was there. NO! I was right the first time this place is still terrible.The food is just bad and no worth the price.
Great local shrimp at an incredible price. Don't forget the music sung by Ronnie and Kim. I drive there every weekend from Columbia to be there. You won't find a better place in LA or NYC.
We have had lunch and dinner at "The Shack" several times now, and always loved the food. Service was slow when they first opened, but has become great as well. Atmosphere and music are awesome. I recommend the shrimp basket (reg size is BIG), burger (reg size again is huge), shrimp burger, sweet potato fries, onion rings, homemade chips (ask for some Buddy Roe's sauce with them or with anything). Bill Murray was there with 2 of his sons once when we went, and I recommended the shrimp burger. They stopped by to say "That shrimp burger was GOOD!" on the way out to play some mini-golf on the grounds outside.
food just bad, not what we expected...blah and mushy fried platter...the bartender cared more about getting on her cell and getting that cigarete outside opposed to actually taking care of customers, had 3 beers and had to ask for a refill each time...just a dive that has the ambiance of, well lets just say should change name to Confederate Roe's
Buddy Roes is the best thing that has happened to Mt. Pleasant. I have been a fan of Ronnie & Kim for years. The food is great, entertainment so so, Ha! just kidding, really wonderful! I drive from Columbia to Mt. Pleasant just to go to Buddy Roes. Yes, the sweet potato fries are to die for!!!!!
Buddy Roes is the best thing that has happended in Mt. Pleasant. I have been a fan of Ronnie & Kim for Years. The food at Buddy Roes is fantastic. I drive from Columbia to Mt. Pleasant just to go to Buddy Roes. A fun, lively place and they DO aim to please. And yes, the sweet potato fries are to die for.
My family and I had the pleasure of stopping by Buddy Roe's Shrimp Shack last week and were pleasantly surprised at the service, atmosphere and the food. All were fantastic and they now have us as regulars.
My husband & I stopped by Buddy Roe's and were happy with our visit. The shrimp burgers were delicious and the chicken fingers with dipping sauce were great. Ronnie Johnson and his wife Kim certainly tried to please everyone and make them feel at home. This is the type of place couples and families alike can stop by and enjoy themselves. The food is good, the music is lively, the attosphere is fun, and hey, you can even get in a game of miniature golf before heading home. Mount Pleasant is so fortunate that Buddy Roe's decided to come to the other side of the IOP!
my family and i had a great time at buddyroes shrimp shack, food was great the atmosphere was also. I love that place
Great burger/great value/great beach ambiance. AND, they have a wide selection of beer including Land Shark!
My husband and I ate there a few weeks back when we were vacationing. The service was excellent. We had the shrimp burger and the fried shrimp basket. The food was excellent. The sweet potato fries were to die for. The owners were very nice and made sure we were happy with our food. I would highly recommend Buddy Roe's
Stopped by last week. Sat outside. Service was good. No challenges there as there weren't many folks there (Tuesday night). Menu was disappointing. Definitely an app and beer place. If that's what you're looking for then you'll do fine.
Funny you mentioned Wendy's because my Buddy Roe's Burger Basket reminded me of the commercial "Wheres the beef" - huge buns.
I had only 7 shrimp in my basket. Give me a break!! How cheap can you be?
They give you more shrimp at Long Johns
for $5.99. Rip Off!!
