Bud & Alley's Waterfront Restaurant

Bud & Alley's Waterfront Restaurant & Bar is Seaside’s landmark restaurant known for casual fine dining with unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico. The beloved restaurant 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 beachside deck and roof terrace offering a panoramic view of Seaside’s downtown life in Central Square. 

Bud and Alley’s is a pioneer of the farm-to-table movement. Start the day with a delicious House Made Granola, Pork Belly Hash, french toast and more paired with a sunrise cocktail. Lunch is casual and features small plates - such as their delicious 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 Bud (ruff)and Alley (meow), it’s a family place, with a kid’s menu for any time of the day.

From sunrise to sunset, Bud and Alley's makes dining on the Gulf special. 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 has rung for decades every day at sunset, marking an end to another day in paradise, and the beginning of a special evening.
