The restaurant is situated at the end of an inlet from the ocean with boats docked very close by and you can sit inside or out looking out onto the water . Food was great ; good selection of seafood and many other choices ; large area suitable for serving approximately 20 people .

Stopped off for lunch and a few cocktails with a friend. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table promptly. The menu was varied and there were also a number of specials available. When the food came it was well presented and delicious. The cocktails were also great. Our server was attentive and made us feel very welcome. I... More

We visited with a group of about 25 friends, snd were comfortably seated at a long table at the front of this small restaurant. The service was prompt and attentive and the food was excellent! We will return the next time we are in Key Largo.

Had dinner with friends at Buzzard's Roost. Dan was our server. He was really nice and attentive. The oysters were yummy and the grouper special, with a little spicing up on my part with lemon and a little salt, was quite good. This was a catching-up dinner with friends, and Dan did not rush us at all, and he was... More

My family of four tried Buzzard's Roost and loved it!! It was almost unmarked from the road, but we found it after almost driving past.The place was small, only about 25 tables. Service was excellent, a young girl who was great with explaining ingredients, being patient when my children ordered and making recommendations. The cracked conch was excellent and conch/cheese...

Because they only feed on something bad and that would be the furthest from the truth here. Seriously, this place is out of the way and worth the search. We felt that it was a great locals place that has multiple seating areas. Inside, porch and outside. The porch was great on a drizzly day. It is based on a... More

A friend had told us they have the best coconut cake, so that's what made us go there. We sat on the pleasant screened in patio area. I had a mahi sandwich & my husband had the mahi... More

The food was good, nothing extra special...atmosphere nice. We ate out back & enjoyed watching the boats moving in an out....& the iguanas frolicking, nearby. Fun experience! But the $50 bill for 2 adults & 2 kids for lunch was not fun, it was a bit of a shock. Kids meals are 6.95 & 7.95 & drinks are $2.50 each...kids... More

Had a wonderful lunch at Buzzard's Roost. Was a beautiful day, and the view of the marina was very nice. Had the fish tacos, lightly blackened. On of the best fish dishes ever! Ordered the smoked fish appetizer, but it wasn't delivered. We weren't charged, and we had enough to eat anyway. Definitely recommended!
