Buddies Sports Bar & Grill was opened on July 1, 1991,
formed from the life long friendship of Steve, Greg, and
Ed. In pre-school, kindergarten, and grade school, the
three had no idea how many years and challenges they
would face together. Each attended different high
schools, but in their teens, became co-workers for many
years with McCormick & Schmick's Restaurants. Soon, in
their mid-twenties, they began talk of opening their own
place, and through the guidance of John Starvaggi,
Buddies Sports Bar began to take shape. John had 40
years and 7 restaurants in his history, and was eager to
share all he had learned with the three. It is this
growing friendship that forms the cornerstone of the
Sports Bar which fittingly displays the name "Buddies"
Today all who gather at Buddies are welcomed as friends
by Steve, Greg, Ed and the team.
