Bud & Alley's Waterfront Restaurant

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and named for a cat and a dog, Bud and Alley’s has been a Seaside icon since 1986. Expect good food, good people, and good times.

Bud and Alley’s is a pioneer of the fish- and farm-to-table movement. The award-winning menu features Gulf Coast classics paired with Southern-style cuisine. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks are served daily in gracious indoor and outdoor dining areas and on the roof terrace overlooking the Gulf.

With a beautiful view and a breakfast menu inspired by culinary traditions from around the world, you’d be hard pressed to find a more perfect way to start your day. Bloody Mary's serve as meals in themselves, while eggs, entrees, and crowd pleasers like Sweet Potato Pancakes round out the menu.  

Lunch is casual and features small plates, salads, sandwiches, and entrees like the catch of the day with Southern succotash.


From sunrise to sunset, Bud and Alley's makes dining on the Gulf special. Daily sunset celebrations on the rooftop bar have been a Seaside tradition for 30 years. It’s the place to be when the sun dips below the horizon. Listen for the sound of a cast-iron bell from an 1888 steam train ringing in the evening.

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. Bud and Alley’s is a family place, with a kid’s menu for any time of the day.

Frequent and loyal customers count on Bud & Alley’s for all the things that remain constant: the fresh local seafood, ice-cold cocktails, the friendly atmosphere, and signature t-shirts with the original logo of a cat and a dog.

Bud & Alley's devotion extends to two sister restaurants located next door and along the Gulf of Mexico in Seaside. Pizza Bar's authentic stylings of wood-fired artisan pizza pies are direct from the cucinas of Italy, while the Taco Bar's fresh flavors and funky vibes are reminiscent of the authentic taquerias on the Mexican border. Also, Bud and Alley's Catering Company in Grayton Beach allows you to savor the flavors of the dishes you love while celebrating life's milestones and special moments.

Bud & Alley’s is located on Scenic Hwy. 30A overlooking the Gulf in Seaside. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast (hours vary in the off season), lunch, happy hour, and dinner.
