We had lunch on the upper deck overlooking the beach. Food was tasty and prepared well. Service was good considering how crowded the deck. Price was right for the food and service. View makes it a must visit.

We enjoyed dinner at Bud and Alley's and everything was delicious. Start out with a mojito! They are the best. The fish is fresh and the service is attentive. It's located right on the beach and there is usually a lively crowd.

We arrived and the first night experienced Bud and Alley's fired pizza. There is indoor or back patio facing the ocean, which was pretty. The pepperoni pizza is very goid, and I really enjoyed and recommend the fried Brussel sprouts, which were seasoned and tasted...More
