Best clam chowder we have tasted in many years! Friendly atmosphere. All of our food was delicious and had a nice presentation. We will be back!

The freshest and best prepared seafood around. This is the place where the "locals" go because the food is amazing and you are not paying the "tourist" prices. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating and seem to be enjoying their jobs. They have a good beer and wine selection as well.

Been there a few months ago, service was great, but don't like the food. Not very clean appearance. Sometimes doesn't smell good.

My wife and I had not been back to 12A since they closed due to fire, but very happy to say that they are back and better than ever. We had lunch and only waited about 5 minutes before being seated, in the meantime a nice IPA was a pre meal beverage. A bowl of Miami Vice started our meal,... More

Had lunch with my husband and our two small children. The crab cakes appetizer was meh. I wouldn't order them again. My lobster club was delish. My kid's fried shrimp and chicken fingers also yummy. They cleaned their plates! (Which never happens) husband's cracked conch sandwich was tough and not great. Service was good. I prefer the dinner menu.

We were celebrating birthdays a few months ago. The atmosphere outside was great, and the service was wonderful. The food was absolutely fantastic, and the shrimp were huge! Everyone in our group agreed, so we have returned and will continue to do so. I highly recommend 12A Buoy.

Inside seating is limited so if you want AC you must arrive early. Otherwise you can sit at the outside tables.

We ate here last night. There was a wait for an inside table so they asked of we would like to sit outside. We said yes, and she mentioned there would be flies. We said that would be ok, but didn't realize just how bad the flies would be. Everyone loved their food, but as soon as the fresh seafood... More

For a lunch after you have walked a nature trail and gone to the beach, it is fabulous! We had the mahi fingers and cheese grits, it was absolutely delicious. make sure you try the smoked fish dip with crackers, wow, no words, it was awesome! The place is clean, nice and very cozy, feels like you are family here,... More

Easy to miss if your not going there specifically, I grew up on the chesapeake bay and fried seafood was abundant. The seafood id the draw, yet they have other fare and I've yet to have a bad meal (lunch or dinner). Great Chowder
