Thank you Trip Advisor friends for another worthy recommendation. The GPS had us looping through the marina parking lots and I am glad we didn't give up. Had the crunchy grouper with cheesy grits as the side - happy to be down South again where proper grits are readily available.

My wife and I and two friends went to 12ABuoy wednesday evening and was happily surprised at the great service we received. We were greeted immediately and seated without any wait. As soon as we were seated our server was there and took our drink orders and they were promptly served. The server took our order and answered a few... More

This is where the locals eat. Great food, great prices, and always packed! Casual dining. Amazing food! You feel like you're getting a five star meal at a fancy Restraunt at a fraction of the price. You always leave with your belly full and feeling like you got a great deal. The owner Owen is a blast and is always... More

We recently became "Snowflakes". A term that our closing agent described as New Yorkers who don't spend the traditional 3-4 months during the winter in Florida but go down there every few weeks to get a break from the cold. During one of our 1st trips, we were told to eat at 12a buoy. It is not very visible from... More

We were told about this restaurant by a friend and decided to try it. The restaurant is simple with indoor and outdoor seating. The service is friendly. The portions are generous. If you order appetizers you may not be able to finish the main course. The clam chowder and the macaroni & cheese are the best we've ever had. There... More

Short on atmosphere but LONG on a superlative menu. Well worth the trip. Popular with locals and snowbirds alike.

Make sure to read the menu, you'll find a few funny but true helpful hints. One went something like "Our kitchen is really tiny so your food will be here eventually". We had the Lobster Mac and Cheese for appetizer and surf and turf for the main course. It does take a little longer for the food to come out... More

This visit was our first time back in town since 12A buoy reopened under new ownership. We sat outside listening to a guitar player. Megan our waitress was great! Very friendly with a great sense of humor. Three of us had seafood entrees off the menu and one person ordered the special. Everyone was very pleased with their selections. The... More

Beach goers, professsionals at lunch and fisherman all here for the same reason, Great food! Lea was our waitress who really seemed to enjoy her... More

12a Buoy is a great restaurant. The food is fresh and the menu offers plenty of options. 12a Buoy is in a small building, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's worth the time. I highly recommend eating at 12a buoy. By the way, the Lobster Mac and cheese is awesome!!
