PANAMA CITY BEACH-- The new Bud and Alley's restaurant in Panama City Beach saw a great turn out for their opening night.
At 7 p.m Thursday they had more than 150 people in the restaurant.
Owner Dave Rauschkolb said he was very excited to have the bell ceremony and bring this tradition to another part of the Panhandle.
"I am very pleased. I didn't want to have a grand, grand opening, I just wanted to have an opening that was grand. It was important to get it right and any time you are opening up a restaurant, you want it to go smoothly. So I am glad we didn't tell the world about it, but I think the world will know this weekend, and we are ready for it," Rauschkolb said.
Bud and Alley's seats 460 people. They'll be open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
