The food was great and the location equally as great. Just a bit of a drive off the main highway so very easy to find and it was very quiet. We ate lobster roll sandwiches and both enjoyed. The crab cake appetizer was good also. The seating outdoors was perfect. Service was attentive without being annoying - which can be... More

My husband and I wanted to go to a good seafood restaurant for our last night in Key Largo. We had the conch chowder. He had the shrimp tacos with sweet potato fries which he really liked. I ordered the Buzzard Seafood Pasta with marina sauce which was also very good. We ate outside and enjoyed our dinner.

Heard about this place from a friend and decided to boat to it. Nice peaceful trip. It has small slips to pull into and tie up. We had some drinks and happy hour food outside. Usually only reserved for inside bar but they made an exception for us since we had 2 underage. Good drinks, good food and nice folks.... More

This was my third visit to the Buzzard’s Roost. The location is on a marina a couple of blocks off US 1 but plug the address into your GPS. You can choose between dining indoors, on a screened patio, or outdoors. I had lunch outdoors last year and it was pleasant. But the Florida Keys can be buggy certain times... More

We stopped here for Sunday lunch with our kids. Everyone enjoyed their food & the ambiance was spectacular! Live music outside on a canal with boats & pelicans all around. Pricing is decent: $90 tab for a family of 6. Highly recommend!

I was looking forward to a pleasant dinner for our 38th anniversary, and our mood jumped up a few notches as we walked out onto the patio and the band began to play the old blues standard (more recently performed by Eric Clapton) "Down and Out". One of my favorite songs - which I used to sing each night as... More

We ate at this ocean-side restaurant/pub twice during our visit to Key Largo. Its tucked out of the way, kind of non-descript from the outside, but very fast and friendly service on a small marina. We had two lunches there - food is very reasonably priced and very good. They also have a nice happy hour (4-6 I believe). This... More

We have been going to Buzzards for a few years. We are always happy when Piper is our server. The drinks are great and a good amount. The food is always excellent. The view up the canal to the ocean is perfect.

We stumbled on this restaurant and it was fantastic. You can choose to sit outside, in an enclosed porch or inside. The food was great and the prices were reasonable. Located right on the dock. Be sure and make reservations.
