My wife and I had a great lunch here with our high school daughter. We sat under the gazebo overlooking the dunes and the surf and enjoyed mahi burgers and the like. Service was great, the view was wonderful and the food well prepared. This is a GREAT place to have lunch or dinner if you want gulf-side dining.

As soon as I arrived in Seaside, I was taken here for lunch. It is a busy and fun place. We sat outside on this beautiful day, looking at the water and snacking on hummus and pita while waiting for our lunch. I had a grilled chicken salad and enjoyed the good mix of flavors in the salad.

Seaside presents a walk back into the past with pastel houses and sandy paths. Bud and Alley's has embraced that with a passion. Located on the beach with three viewing levels of the Gulf, it could not be better situated. We might wish for a better menu, but what is there is pretty good. Depending upon the month (read tourist... More

You can't find many places on 30a that are on the water , or close to it. This place has great views! The portions are average to small but the food is good. They tend to be fairly busy even after the early rush. Decent wine selection and great frozen drinks.

Very pricey for just ok food. The potatoes seemed to be mixed with instant. My teenage son said they tasted like the playdoh he tried in pre-school. Expected more for a $200 dinner for 4 with no alcohol.

I went to the pizza bar for dinner before the evening rush. Ordered pasta pomodoro. It was just okay - wished they sold pizza by the slice, as that's what they were famous for.

Very expensive. And, the food is nothing special. Drinks were very expensive, and definitively not worth the money. There are much better choices in this area.

Pretty consistent on food. Tables outside are very small and plastic and unstable. This used to be somewhere we came every year. For the money, we probably will go to the V at Seagrove or Cafe Thirty A. There are better places to go, they just have good advertising and hype.

We had a wonderful evening at Bud and Alley's! The wine list was good and the food was good but the atmosphere was the best! Great place to sit outside, see the ocean and enjoy a dinner with a group of friends. We had a reservation, but were able to get a primo seat upstairs looking right over the beach... More

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Bud and Alley 's. Great service, nice atmosphere, and excellent food! I recommend the snapper entree and baked oyster appetizer.
