We enjoyed our lunch in general but is worth mentioning that if you sit outside with the intent of enjoying the waterfront view consider that it is at the end of a canal and you will be sitting in a working marina close to the fuel station and you will smell gas fumes coming from the forklift, boat engines and...

Stopped for lunch on our way to Key West to kick off our week of seafood. We shared the conch chowder and seafood combo..and still had some leftover. The portions were huge! Great atmosphere and beautiful views over the canal. The seafood was cooked to perfection!

We sat at the bar because we wanted a drink before dinner and ended up staying there for dinner. Really like the ambience. Restaurant is very pleasant. We had calamari for an appetizer. Loved it. The breaking was light just the way I like it. I had fresh hogfish with asparagus. The fish was simply grilled but you have other... More

I will not review the food as there are plenty of reviews on this restaurant. I would mention if traveling and would like an ocean view, there are better choices in the keys. Buzzard's is at the end of a canal with the ocean being several blocks away. It is a working marina with the noise that accompanies such operation.

Hands down this is one of the best restaurants!! We vacationed in Key Largo and decided to have dinner here per the reviews on tripadvisor. We all left loving our entire meal. The atmosphere was great and overlooked the marina and Atlantic Ocean. The service was superb! Our waiter, Dan, was great and very friendly. I got Mahi Mahi sauteed... More

Mahi sandwich was delicious and so was the burger. Both cooked perfectly. The calypso music in the background was a fun touch!

Oh Yeah! We popped into this out of the way place - it is in a boat yard (there will be crane, boat, pressure washer noises) but it is a very nice place. We did a munchies lunch of fish dip, conch fritters and Caesar salads - all were very good. While we were lunching a huge Manatee paid us... More
