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
