It’s hard not to love the town of Seaside, and this restaurant fits right with the theme. The balcony overlooks the ocean, and that is one of the main reasons to head there. The food is very good. Portion size is appropriate, but small. The...More

Great view with good food. Smoked tuna dip was awesome. The staff is friendly and helpful. The drink menu has refreshing choices and a good happy hour menu.

Bud and Alley's is a favorite of ours'. We love the view in the upstairs deck. They have great appetizers and drinks. You can also get a light lunch or dinner. Their cubans, shrimp, and chicken salad are fantastic! Get there early. It is hard...More

We went to Bud and Alley's for appetizers and cocktails - I wish we would stayed for dinner too. Tough to find seats but it is that way everywhere in that circle. Beer was cold and the Martini was really good. Tuna Dip was amazing...More
