Great views of beach, good bartering service, and tasty beverages. Prices are a bit high, but hey, there's no cover charge. Enjoy.

I have had some lovely meals here. Any fresh fish served in brown butter promises to delight, and I adore the grits. I also am a special fan of the salmon served here. Try to arrive early and ask for a table facing a marshy area backed by the piercing white sand beach. In busy seasons, reservations are highly recommended.

Breakfast with a view! We had a great egg-croissant sandwich while sitting outside on the deck. Bud and Alley's had the best view of the beach that we enjoyed while in the area.

Sitting high above the beach, drinking a wonderful cocktail made by a delightful bartender waiting for our table was a delight. Then our food came and what a treat! Would love to go back and relive this experience many times!

This is my 3rd time here. I really enjoy the atmosphere. The live music adds to the appeal. The food is very good. I recommend this place to anyone visiting the Seaside/Panama City Beach area.

The pizza is excellent! We tried the tre carne and the pizza with prosciutto (needed less arugula). They were both good.

The first time we came here we sat in the dining room and ordered drinks and appetizers, etc. Being from New Orleans I was really excited to try the BBQ shrimp, but I hate corn bread and just wanted some plain bread to soak up the sauce so I asked our waitress if I could just get some regular bread...
