Great view of beach! Delicious food & froze cocktail. I had the grilled mahi & veggies. Husband enjoyed it too. Not cheap but worth the stop.

We love the new under tent/awning seating area at the rear of the restaurant. The seating area has doubled or tripled. Same great food, same great service. Now the can more easily accommodate larger parties of people.

We were looking for a casual seafood place after a long day at the beach. Reading the reviews I thought Bud and Alley’s would be a casual kid friendly seafood place. It’s not. The kids menu was very disappointing with most meals priced $17. Adult...More

Hands down! If I could marry the Red Bar key lime crust with the Bud & Alley’s key lime pie—that’s the only thing that might make it even better❤️
