Great Food service and view

My sisters and I ate here numerous times during our stay during the month of August 2015. We ate lunch and dinner here and enjoyed it every time. Great food and service. We would highly recommend it.

Buzzards Roost was a fabulous place to catch a lunch meal after a morning of diving. Service was excellent, food was quick, our plates were full and delicious. We really enjoyed their restaurant.

Stopped here for lunch on my way to Miami. They serve lots of sandwiches and such. Its pretty average. We sat on the deck by the marina. I had a BLT that was not very good accompanied by some rice and beans that was good. My husband had the Blackened Chicken Caesar Wrap which he said was alright. The service... More

Tucked back at the end of a canal, the atmosphere is great! Indoor, screened porch or put on the water. The fish tacos were some of the best and the conch fritters were pretty good. My 4 year old declared the grilled cheese the best she'd ever had! A great place to grab dinner when you've been out and about... More

This place is a great combination of location, service and good food. Portions are very generous. Fish was fresh and everything on the plate was good. The best place to sit is outside next to the water. Went on a Saturday afternoon and had no problem finding a table. The coconut cake is simply delicious. Will definitely come back.

Casual and laid back. We were there early on a weeknight and it was empty but I'll bet it gets crowded later especially because they have specials on cocktails. Fish was fresh, salad was fresh. No complaints. Several vegetarian options.

Wow! Several friend recommended this place and I'm sure glad I went. The place is tucked away near a small marina. The inside area is small,but the outdoor dining area a little larger. The food was great and the coconut cake was AWESOME!!!!!

Excellent meal and service. We shared the shrimp quesadillas, calamari and the conch fritters...all were delicious. Main meals were blackened fish sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. Will recommend to all that are in that area.

The place doesn't look like much from the outside as we drove past it once before coming back and trying it. Variety of seating, we sat at a table in the bar area. Greated immediately by a very personable waiter (can't remember his name, tall guy with glasses)...anyway, got our order and drinks to us right away. Food was amazing!... More
