Very good

This place stays very busy but still does a good job. If you want a table with ocean view , you should make a reservation, otherwise it's not necessary. The sweet potato fries were very good, the crab cakewere excellent, the whole fish snapper was good. The kids plates are generous. The kids... read more

This is perhaps the most under rated restaurant in the area. Wow, the service was exceptional, the views are breath taken and the food was worth eating there several times through out the week. We had breakfast there one morning and dinner there twice while in town. Great atmosphere at night as well, very lively with a good mix of... More

Had pecan encrusted grouper and it was very good. Service was quick, but drink costs were excessive. Family had various dishes and all were pleased.

Escaping from the NE Georgia Mountains to get my beach on and had this restaurant recommended to me. Beautiful setting, sitting above the beach for a beautiful view and what a fabulous breeze after being hot all day. The fish dip was one of the best I've had and the yellowtail (catch of the day) was delicious. The staff was... More

Group of 6 adults 4 children with No reservations - waited: 45m. Plenty of shops in this complex while you wait. Sardine Bruschetta was spicy but good. Wood fired olives and Cheese plate were good but too expensive for portion size. They serve Neapolitan style pizzas, we had 5 pizzas; 1 prosciutto, 1 jalapeno, 1 mushroom and 2 Clam pizzas.... More

A place for any meal, any time, Bud and alley's offers simple fare at a not so simple price. Food is fresh and very good, staff is friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is beachside comfy. Beautiful view of the water makes this place special. a little tricky to locate, but worth the hunt.

Crab cakes were soggy, the waiter recommended them. They were the worst I've ever have. He also recommend the BBQ shrimp appetizer. It was terrible. If you like to spend over $100 on mediocre food, this is your place.

We always go upstairs to the Tarpon Club where you can sit and look out at the beach! Great food and atmosphere! We especially like their Tuna Dip with Lavosh crackers! Get it every time. Also their Cuban or Ruben sandwich although I think they have taken that off their menu. Put it back on!!

The sweet potato fries, chicken salad on croissant, and grilled chicken with bacon and provolone on ciabatta roll were great! The view of the ocean was outstanding!

We have been coming to Seaside and Bud and Alleys long enough to know when to go and not to go, what to order, and what to expect. First off, you're going there for the view, location, and ambiance - because it doesn't get any better. If you want more of a quiet sit down meal experience, sit in the... More
