LAKEWOOD, NY (WNY News Now) – A new restaurant has opened for business in Lakewood.

Buddy Brewster’s Ale House welcomed customers on Wednesday as part of a soft opening.

Over the summer the locally owned establishment announced they planned to open a second location in Chautauqua County, renovating and moving into the former Ruby Tuesday’s building at the Chautauqua Mall.

While the restaurant’s bar is not expected to open until the weekend, there is a variety of menu offerings from burgers to pastas.

Jamestown resident Steve Swegles was among the many who turned out to give the restaurant a try.

“I got the pub pretzel for an appetizer, it was a little crispy but still really, really good, and I got the brewhouse specialty, that was super good as well, it was very filling,” said Swegles. “My girlfriend got chicken lips and some fry’s, everything was really good.”

Swegles tells us he was a patron of the location’s sister restaurant in Fredonia and recommends this new location as well. Learn more about the spot’s hours and menu online at
