We travelled down to Seaside to try Bud and Alley's after reading online it was a very casual oceanside restaurant. The dress is very casual and the servers wear t-shirts but the prices are certainly not casual. Dinner entrees start around $30 and many are...More

The food is really good, but the portion sizes are small. The staff is great. The place is clean and the ambience is great. Easy to locate.

The grouper was ok. Cooked well but Nothing memorable and definitely not worth the $32. Not for the limited patio view nor the food. The atmosphere is smarmy-casual. It is overpriced, bland, and just made me long for Brotulas.

I had a horrible, watered down cocktail, and while I was choking it down, I had a look at some of the food that was being put down at neighboring tables, and nothing looked particularly outstanding. It looks like a place to... More
