Bud & Alley's Waterfront Restaurant

Bud & Alley’s is a beach-front restaurant and bar located in Seaside, Florida boasting Gulf views and an unparalleled panoramic view of Seaside’s downtown life in Central Square. Known for its casual fine dining, this beloved establishment features Gulf Coast classics paired with Southern-style cuisine. Expect good food, good people, and good times. From sunrise to sunset, Bud and Alley's makes dining on the Gulf special.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks are served daily in gracious indoor and outdoor dining areas and on the roof terrace & deck. The stunning three-story bell tower entrance to the roof-deck, equipped with an elevator, houses the restored 1888 steam train bell. The revered bell rings daily at sunset marking an end to another day in paradise.

Bud and Alley’s is a pioneer of the farm-to-table movement. Lunch is casual and features small plates - such as their famous housemade tuna dip, as well as salads, sandwiches, and entrees like the catch of the day with Southern succotash. The celebration extends from happy hour to the dinner menu with a nod to fine dining. Entrees include favorites such as airline chicken, prime steaks, and pasta dishes, with an extensive wine list to enjoy. Named after a cat and a dog, Bud and Alley’s is a family place, with a kid’s menu for any time of the day.
