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

It's a little place with great food. So far, on our three visits, we've only gotten to the appetizers and soup...the appetizers are plentiful, especially the oysters, and Miami vice soup/chowder is excellent! One of our favorite places to stop when we're on the road to south Florida...great food...great value....

I have only been during the lunch hours but the prices are great! The food is delicious and flavorful! Shrimp and grits, lobster Mac and cheese, boiled shrimp, and Macy's fish dip are incredible to name a few! As often as we can, we visit this great little place! My girls and I love dine here!

We started off having the fish dip which was served with chopped onions, tomatoes and jalapeño's which was a great touch to so great fish dip. We also had the Miami Vice chowder, which is a mix of white and red chowder and boy was it good. My salad was very fresh and chocked full of veggies. I had the... More

My husband and I travel to the Fort Pierce FL area a couple/few times a year and this is one of our favorite places to dine. The food is always so very good, perfectly cooked, and the staff are very friendly. On our most recent visit for lunch, we shared Miami Vice soup (mix of clam chowder and conch) and... More

Upon arriving at 12A Buoy my party of 4 placed our names on a wait list and told it would be a 35 minute wait. We were glad we waited. (Turned out to be a 20 minute wait.) We ordered the Wahoo Special, the Yellowtail Snapper, the Offshore Pasta and the Seafood Alfredo. All 4 meals arrived hot, fresh, and... More

Fish dip is the best I have had, oysters are fresh as can be, service divine, and music gives that island vibe.
