My hubby and I came here for a late dinner around 9pm. The restaurant was pretty empty on a Friday night. Our waiter was nice but NO personality. It took a while for us to get waited on. We should have walked out. I ordered salmon and my hubby ordered grouper. Over priced and dried out on the grouper. My... More

One couple shared the chicken portobello sandwich, with a starter bowl of gumbo. The other couple each ordered fish dinners, one trout and mahi mahi. Everyone loved their... More

We had the crab cakes eggs Benedict, and they were the best crab cakes ever. Lightly breaded on the outside, the were comprised solely of real crab and probably butter. The hollandaise sauce was also perfect. We sat in the rooftop bar area. Even though it was 52 degrees out and we were in the open with just a roof... More

Great restaurant and location. Our latest trip to Bud & Alley's was for lunch. Blackened fish sandwich is always good as well as the sweet potato fries. The upstairs bar is okay, but I don't need the crowd.

Delicious lunch on a Sunday. Christina took very good care of us. Have the hummus; rougher texture seemed homemade and the flavor was great, especially paired with the warm, bubbled pita points. Our table loved the gumbo, salad nicoise, chicken salad, Mahi sandwich, and chicken-portobello sandwich. Worth a visit. We ate on the main level because upper level deck was... More

Good food, good service, good views, kind of pricey though. I guess that just goes with being in Seaside.

We have been going here since i was a kid. My husband and i stop by every once in a while to have an appetizer and take in the view. Every time it has been a good experience. I love the shrimp and grits!

We ended up eating here just because of the view and in the end we couldn't have been more delighted. Eating great food while people watching cannot be beaten!

Service was good, atmosphere ok. Very pricey for food quality. Fish dishes and mixologist very good. Would not be my top choice for the area. For the past five years it was number one

Thank Nickcoll
