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.

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

Excellent views from many different locations. The service was very good despite it being the height of the summer season. Great variety of food for everyone in my family.

Great place to watch the sunset. Sign up for the official sunset time and win a drink. Restaurant is down stairs and food is average, but you came for the sunset. Its always crowded at sunset time so show up a little early.

Had the yummiest crabcake for lunch and mango mojito. I did ask for a few more greens with my crab cake since it came with hardly nothing. The view from the outdoor terrace is amazing. Be sure to get a table outside. Will definately be back next time I am in the area.

Thank Victoria T
