“Manatee and Tarpon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

My husband and I ate brunch here on a Sunday morning at the recommendation of the owner of the condo in which we were staying. We sat out under the canopy overlooking the marina inlet. As we enjoyed our delicious breakfast of Eggs Oscar (me) and a The Higher Ground Omelet (he), we watched manatee and tarpon cruising the inlet. The food was outstanding, and the complementary champagne with brunch put the icing on the cake. We highly recommend this eatery.

“Go here for fish tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

We stopped here for lunch after reading other Trip Advisor reviews. The Buzzard's Roost has waterside dining inside and out, a patio and a tiki bar. Chad was our server and he was very friendly and efficient. I ordered the blackened Mahi Fish Tacos and they were excellent. My husband had the seared Ahi Tuna (and some of my fish tacos)! Both meals were a good size portion and reasonably priced. We will definitely stop by here again on our way down to Islamorada.

“Excellent value at Buzzards Roost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We dropped into Buzzards Roost on recommendation from locals. The food here is excellent, and very plentiful - unless you have a big appetite, appetizers aren't necessary and you will not eat your entrée !
A good selection of beers and wines is on offer, with a nice covered eating area outside. Service was very attentive. Well worth a visit.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We had trouble finding the Buzzards Roost because the name wasn't out front, it said Cove something. We stopped on the way home from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale and had burgers. They were very good, service was good. Nice shaded outside eating area.

“Ok, but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Atmosphere was nice, but food was wrong and waiter said, "well I don't speak Spanish, so I couldn't tell the chef how to make your food." Really? Pretty disappointed with that.
