Resting on its Laurels

I feel that this is a restaurant that is just going through the motions. Food OK, but not special. Service friendly enough but not particularly attentive. There are better choices nearby.

Enjoyed an excellent lunch here three great meals, beautiful views of the Gulf and perfect service. The bartendar made an excellent Bloody Mary with a garden of veggies on top! The Cuban BLT peel and eat shrimp made for a great lunch.

We had a party of 10 on a Sat about 6pm, but somehow they found us a great table with ocean view (indoor, too hot for outside), Was a little pricey, but elegant menu with good lump crab, steaks, fish. Service matched the menu, knowledgeable waiter, good wine selection, etc.

Good views, interesting people watching but do not go for the food. Went for salad, pizza and some drinks ...out of two kinds of wine (really on a Tuesday night at 7 and they have two other nearby restaurants and they could not walk over and get us a bottle ) and out of two of the four salads! Ok... More

We have rented a home in Seagrove and enjoy 30A. Tonight was our first night to eat out and we chose Bud & Alley's Pizza Bar. We ordered the Kale Caesar Salad, Margarita & Sausage pizza. Bad idea... The pizza is not what you expect in typical pizza restaurant. Overpriced, as a family of 4 was $100.

My wife and I have a fondness for this place. The tables at the top are temperate despite the end-of-summer heat. Good wine and drinks. Smoked tuna dip is a hit along with the grilled fish sandwich. Good vibe.

My wife and I are both foodies. We love hole in the wall places and fine dining experiences as long as the food is good. Bud & Alley's was our favorite of many meals eaten out during a week long family vacation in Seagrove/Seaside. We each had the bay scallops and they were prepared PERFECTLY! Tender, delicious, not even a... More

Still the best! One of the best beach bars you will ever go to! Food is great, the drinks are great, service is fine, but the views... the views are fantastic... If you want to know about the people in the place, come back in the spring, winter or fall, as there are too many "Tourons" in the summer. A... 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
