Buddy’s is a great bar/grille in East Lansing. Their patio is fantastic for the summer months, it sprawls around the outside of the restaurant and is spacious enough to stretch out and enjoy a nice meal.
The service is fast and friendly. I’ve even seen some fellow business people bring their work and laptop on the patio for a bit of mid-afternoon away-from-the-office work.
Just be sure to bring a paperweight, or a gust of wind can send your office into your burger, or worse, into the parking lot!
