Our Story

Buddy Spiegelhalter and his wife Terri, have been serving excellent dinners in Dubuque’s North End District since 1998. For many years this restaurant was owned and operated by Buddy’s Uncle Bob. Buddy used to help out at night when he was working during the day at the Dubuque Packing Company. While at The Pack Buddy became a skilled meat cutter. So that’s why even today he insists on hand cutting all the restaurant’s meats.

Buddy and Terri took over this neighborhood hot spot in January, 1998 and reopened the restaurant as Buddy’s Clubhouse on March 6th of that year. Only USDA Choice Grade beef is used. It is never frozen and is hand cut the same day it is to be served.

Come join us for an amazing array of appetizers, seafood, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken and prime rib.
