For whatever reason, this little beachside bar which serves really wonderful fresh taco's has decided to add on an automatic 15% gratuity to ALL orders. Ok, they have no inside dining - you sit outside at wrought iron tables. They do offer free drink refills but you have to go back to the bar to get them. So I'm paying... More

While overlooking the aqua blue water and white sandy beach, enjoy a lemon drop and fresh ceviche. Ideal for date night (or families) and casual enough to dine with sandy feet.

This may be the best meal I have EVER eaten in all of Seaside. The Tuna was wonderful, as was the arugula salad and the pimento cheese appetizer. Excellent server, Ron, and wonderful meal!

Sat upstairs with Taylor and the view could not have been nicer. She guided our way through the menu and helped us pick out some great things. First time here and will definitely be back!

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. I think... More

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.
