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!!

Not only can you have the best New England clam chowder ever at this restaurant, they have a Miami Vice version which you can add in the Conch chowder in the center of the New England chowder. I have been going to this unpretentious restaurant for the last five years and have never been disappointed. It is a must if... More

This is my kind of place; casual with an attentive wait staff, good basic food at a good price. Try the mussels for a healthy appetizer. The burger looked like it should have been on the cover of a magazine and my fish sandwich was delicious. What more can you ask for. (Except maybe a view which is not why... More

If you only eat at one place in Ft. Pierce, eat here!! The fish was so fresh and the Tai Shrimp was freaking awesome!! It's not much to look at from outside but it's got a lot of character.

Thai rock shrimp amazing, fish fingers and fries (especially fries!) delicious, mini crab cakes a little dry..but that is what I ordered, so my problem. The lobster mac n cheese looked fabulous, but way too much for one, as did everything else I saw on a table or go by....and everyone in the restaurant looked happy. Our server was excellent,... More

I had a local friend advise us to eat here for lunch and was not disappointed. There are about 3 other little shack places in the area that we drove by to stop here. Nothing fancy here but just great food. We had the mussels appetizer and while they weren't the largest ones I've ever had they were tasty and... More

With out a doubt the best food in Fort Pierce! Can't beat the fried shrimp and fresh fish. Everyone is very friendly. It can get a bit noisey inside but if the weather is nice you can sit outside.

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
