We arrived through the back of a scruffy parking lot. And were a little dubious at first. "Casual" is somewhat of an understatement. More like a "Crab Love Shack", mind you the fresh catch sandwich was delicious (that was the yellowtail snapper, grilled). Great friendly service- cheers Jeff! Kids pasta a little sour but Offspring 3 enjoyed well enough. Drinks:... More

Arrive by 5 on a Saturday and were already on a short wait. Seated shortly inside (cooler there) and Jeffrey was our server. He was professional, patient, friendly, and efficient. He got our glasses of wine while we decided on meals, then suggested one of several kinds of oysters for appetizer. He was right: blue points were sweet and tender!... More

Quick review here. Fished all day with a native who loves fish. Bottom line is this is where he told me to eat great fresh fish. He had wahoo and redfish and they were perfect. Had a nice local IPA with dinner and our service was excellent.

Pickle and fries on the side, $12. Special, catch of the day was snapper with green beans and roasted potatoes, $15, it looked good, too. The... More

Had a late lunch here and ate outside. The chowders are excellent and the lobster BLT is to die for. Friendly service and laid back atmosphere made for a wonderful lunch.

Let me start with the Peanut Butter Pie, OMFG the best pie I've ever had! If I weren't leaving tomorrow I'd go back and just order that. The Key Lime was awesome too. Crusted (with corn flakes) Wahoo white fish was yummy. Mash potatoes yummy. Daughter had veggies pasta, she said it was okay. The sweet tea was just the... More

We have been eating at 12A Buoy for years, but we hadn't been in about 2 years. I cannot believe what a terrible experience we had for dinner tonight! The evening started out good, sits Saturday night at 6:30, so we waited about 40 minutes and we were fortunate to get a table outside. We were a table of 6.... More

We had the conch fritters as an appy...they were delish! Lots of conch and seasoned well. For main dish, I had the blackened shrimp and hubby, who doesn't really LIKE fish, had grilled mahi-mahi. We both were so pleased with the freshness and the portion size. Our servers were great, & were willing to explain. They kept coming back to... More
