Bud & Alley's Waterfront Restaurant

Bud & Alley’s is a must do in SoWal - dine beach front and take in a glorious Gulf sunset in the cozy fining room, on the deck, or on the roof top with 360-degree views of Seaside. Known for casual fine dining, the beloved restaurant 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 & beachside deck. There's even a walkover to the beach and duneside bar! 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.

Bud and Alley’s is a pioneer of the farm-to-table movement. 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.
