They have the best seafood that you will find on the treasure coast BUT don't ever order the mussels you will need a magnifying glass and a toothpick to find them, that aside the broth is great for dipping. The atmosphere is dive bar to casual, but don't miss the place. The trip from anywhere is worth the trip. Use... More

We came here on a sat night to a long wait. We waited for 20 minutes and then some patrons left the bar, and we snagged those seats. When the bartender asked if we wanted to start with an appetizer at the bar, we agreed. Later to find out, we could eat at the bar- so we did! The people... More

We visited the restaurant this past weekend and will definitely be back in the future. Our friends had heard about this place from a friend of theirs. We looked up the menu and reviews before going and read very good things about them. Pulling up to the place though I had my doubts. It looks like a little seafood shack... More

We had dinner tonight and the food was incredible! I had the one of the specials and it was great. Of course I always start with the Miami vice and it never disappoints. It was quiet tonight which is a plus, usually during the season you can't hear yourself think it's so loud. Don't middle this place, best in Fort... More

We went to 12A Buoy on a Thursday night since we heard that it can be pretty crowded. Wanted to avoid going on the weekend. When we walked inside it didn't look like much but we got seated and ordered drinks. It was so incredibly noisy that we all felt uncomfortable. there was a lady in the back that was... More

12A Buoy has great food and an expansive menu. The presentation of the meal is beautiful; with fresh flowers to set it off. I would highly recommended this restaurant for anyone looking for a delicious meal, especially seafood.

So don't judge a book by its cover, 12A is not a fancy upscale building, but the food will make you think you are in a fine dining establishment. We have been there several times and ventured off from our usual menu picks. Of course the Miami Vice chowder was a given, come on is there any better way to... More

We're locals in the Vero Beach, Fort Pierce area, have lived here for nearly 20 years and have visited numerous restaurants here and numerous other places around the country. On a recent trip to Savannah we tried two of our favorite 12A Buoy - shrimp and grits and seared scallops. Although the restaurant in Savannah was one of the most... More

We were one of the first groups to arrive for lunch. We were seated immediately and had good service. They had a nice outdoor seating area, but it was too hot to eat outside. All of us had grouper which was very good. We also had a key lime pie for dessert. They have a frozen version of the pie,... More
