Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant, located on Scenic Highway 30A overlooking the Gulf in Seaside, has again won one of the state’s highest culinary honors, Florida Trend magazine’s Golden Spoon Hall of Fame Award.
For more than 50 years, Florida Trend magazine has provided readers with a guide to the state’s finest restaurants, celebrating the diversity of dining opportunities from coast to coast. The Golden Spoon awards recognize individual achievement and distinctive contributions to the Florida restaurant scene.
This prestigious honor designates Bud & Alley’s as one of the Top 20 restaurants in the state of Florida. Bud & Alley’s is one of only two restaurants selected from Santa Rosa Beach.
“Dining out is a major activity for Florida citizens and our more than 110 million annual visitors,” says Florida Trend publisher Andy Corty. “We are pleased to recognize the leaders.”
Since its founding in 1986, Bud & Alley’s has set the standard for culinary excellence along Scenic Highway 30A.
