Met another couple for dinner with reservation at 6:30 PM. Drink and reorders taken in a timely manner and delivered in a timely manner. Ordered 2nd bottle of wine and enjoyed nice conversation when we were informed that they had another party that was going to be coming in and we were going to need to vacate the table fairly...

I met a friend here and found the menu selection to be excellent. Portions are good for the value and the atmosphere comfortable, a tad dark. I ordered one of the specials: Pulled Pork tacos w/ Cabbage and Apple slaw. Served with a choice of chips, fries, or onion rings. It came with 2 well stuffed tacos and a yummy... More

Stopped by for Sunday brunch. Walked in and saw a tray of cinnamon buns which is the first thing I ordered. Huge, ooozy delicious cinnamon, soft, doughy, warm topped with creamy frosting. Oh my goodness, it was heavenly and worth every calorie. I had the egg, bacon, tomato and spinach sandwich that was served on the most deliciously toasted bread... More

In my opinion this restaurant is highly over rated by most of the other reviews. The food is OK; the prices would be OK if the portions were in line with the prices. In other words the menu is highly overpriced. Our waitress was in outer space. She was on the phone for 10 minutes while we waited for further... More

This was our first visit to Tastebuds and we were absolutely delighted. We are not from the Mattapoisett area and were not familiar with it but decided to give it a try for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is small, cozy, and attractive and the menu offers a diverse selection of interesting and affordable choices. The service, food, and entire experience... More

Small place, but very interesting menu full of fresh seafood and other creative items. Their dessert listings are fantastic, so save room.

Our group ventures out monthly in an attempt to find local restaurants with a goal of a relaxed evening of good company and fantastic food. The appetizers were favorites found on many of the competitors menus but they were executed quite well. The entree options were varied with distinct twists which made selection a bit difficult. All were prepared exquisitely... More

We decided to give Taste buds another try try after a somewhat rocky first visit a couple years ago. We arrived around 7:30 and walked into the bar area as most tables were occupied. As we sat at the bar area we got a dirty look from the Bartender, we asked him if we could sit here but before he... More

Had a fundraising meeting with 2 friends. We asked for a private table and the restaurant could not have been more cooperative and give us a quiet table in a corner. The quality of the food and service was outstanding. The restaurant is very clean, the help is extremely friendly, and the menu is excellent. I highly recommend this to... More

My lobster & clam mozambique (a special today) was exquisite. The well balanced flavors were tantalizingly subtle. A delicious treat for MY tastebuds. Whereas my wife's steak was a "in your face" full flavor delight . And forget any apt description for the deserts. The wife's maple Crème brûlée (another special) was unworldly sinful, and my key lime pie was... More
