Soup arrived cold and with no spoon- couldn’t get a server to heat soup or get spoon for a time.
Two orders of mashed potatoes were served cold.
We went for our daughters 25th birthday and had a wonderful evening. Service, food and atmosphere were per perfect. Can't wait to come back and eat there again.
Great food and experience!
It was an amazing night to sit by the water. The ambiance is perfect for date night. Highly recommend the baked oysters 👌🏼
Overrated. We ordered two orders of peel n eat shrimp -
Something tasted “off” like too much salt - we ended up sending back to the kitchen. The steak and asparagus were served room temperature. We ordered pasta noodles for our child - to add marinara and sprinkle of cheese was an up charge of $3.00. In all, we’ve had much better food in other areas around town for far less.
The bartenders and servers were amazing!!! Sean, Britt an Danielle are rock stars!!!
Great experience. Crab cakes best we ever had.
I lost my wallet and the staff found it. Awesome!
We have eaten here several times in the past. There were two couples for dinner on this visit. It was so loud that we were unable to speak to each other with talking extremely loud.
Okay.. food was subpar for price.
Great service and food was fantastic.
We enjoyed our Presidents Club Dinner and the views were amazing.
It was fabulous!!!!
We were very disappointed . Thought the food would’ve been better for the price we paid it was extremely salty . We were here two years ago and it was fabulous, don’t know what happened. Probably will not go back . We would probably only do the bar and Grill on the rooftop to catch the sunset
Great service and good food.
A member of my party asked (three times, nicely) for grilled shrimp. Restaurant said no. It’s a seafood restaurant ...that serves shrimp. And the $40 crab cakes are served with no sides. Just two crab cakes. They are delicious, but that’s $20 a crab cake. Not very accommodating and overpriced at that. Had a reservation that was promptly met and the server was very nice.
We have gone to Bud and Alley’s for many years, every time we are in Seaside. Always good!!
My first time there, I was with my husband and teenage son. We had a 5:30 reservation, so got seated right by the window (beach view). Lovely view of the sunset. Great wine list. I ordered the crab cakes--very meaty, flaky and delicious with almost no filler. These are the best I've ever had. Had a fabulous succotash side dish. ($6 extra charge) My husband ordered the filet and it was very slightly undercooked but not enough to send it back and he said it was delicious. My son chose not to order anything. With tip, 2 entrees, 1 side dish, 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine our bill was $116 before tip. Seemed a little over priced but I get it--touristy area. I would bring family and friends here during off season. Wouldn't dream of coming here during tourist season.
New Orleans shrimp outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bud & Alleys is very well known in this area and rightfully so. The food is good, the service is excellent, and if you get seated in the right section, you have a view of the ocean. Very enjoyable night with friends
Reviews of the food and views at Bud & Alleys are accurate. The food was excellent, the service superior. But LOUD! Difficult to hold a conversation. Wine list is undistinguished and overpriced. But I can't say enough about the quality of the food and service.
Jackie was our waitress and she was friendly and efficient. Our food was tasty and hot. I tried crab cakes and sweet potato fries. I was not disappointed. The restaurant is quite small, but it was not overly noisy. We met another couple who we have known for many years there. It’s possible we were laughing and the noisy ones! It was an enjoyable evening!
We were looking for a place that offered whole fish in Sandestin area and found it at Bud and Allies. Slightly salty, but very moist! We were there in off season and even then parking was challenging but got right in with reservations. You do pay $$ for everything in the entire gulf area, but wish we didn’t have to pay $4 for bread.
Overall nice place and good food.
Asked for green beans instead of potatoes on one order, received the potatoes and not the green beans. Asked for grits instead of succotash and received both. Ordered the scallops that came on grits that were cold along with receiving another side of grits that weren’t ordered and went to waste.
Ambience, service and view were fine. Food was overpriced.
Crab cakes here are best in the WORLD!! And I’ve tried them all over
Great atmosphere and great service
The crab cakes are the best.
One of our favorites
Valentines Day dinner with my husband. Very good dinner in a very nice atmosphere.
Went with a large group for early New Year's eve dinner. Great service, great food, happy with the price. Enjoyed it enough to go back just the two of us several days later.
Been coming to Bud & Alleys for 30 years and it never disappoints!
Perfect from the food to the service! Thank you for a wonderful date night ....
The food was just ok for the price. We were not happy with the quality, can get same food anywhere.
Scallops were not great - average. Roasted red peppers came from a jar. Very little flavor. Wedge salad same. No flavor. Halibut was delish however. Service was great. Awful wine selection.
Slow erratic service, inexperienced servers, management had a “so what” attitude
Food way overpriced for the quality
Great food and atmosphere. Staff was very friendly. Great experience!
Best crab cakes ever!!!
The pompano was so tender and delicious and the view was breathtaking!
I had the crab cakes which were pretty bland-zero flavor. For the crab cakes to be $39 with no side included they should be great. The atmosphere is not that great either—more like a cheap restaurant. Not worth it in my opinion. For the price, the food should be much better.
Flavorful, fresh, food in a lovely environment.
Our experience wasn't as great as normal. The cocktails were super weak and the service was just very slow. We have eaten here often though so we will be back. Probably just an off night
Great food, quick and friendly service - a mainstay in the neighborhood that I will continue to go to.
