Small restaurant, not much in the way of atmosphere, however, the food is delicious. If you are a shrimp lover this is the place for you. Mac and shrimp, fried shrimp, thy shrimp. Scallops, tuna, plus so much more. Scallops are to die for, love them. I have always eaten seafood there and I was never disappointed. Waitresses are on... More

Had a long wait but was well worth it. The inside is very crowded but that has to be expected as they are trying to accommodate as many patrons as possible. Our order came out promptly and was one of the best meals we had on our vacation. Highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for seafood.

We take all our company here when they come to Fort pierce, and it never disappoints. The Tuna tartar is fabulous and one of my favorites. Don't be fooled by the location. It's not water front dining, but it's worth the stop.

Since relocating to the Treasure Coast we've searched for a good seafood restaurant north of Key Largo. We went to the 12A Buoy on the recommendation of a friend and were pleasantly surprised. A nondescript building near the fishing pier. Most of the seating is outside on the deck, which is preferred, but bring insect repellant. The menu is not... More

If you are an adventurous seafood lover you must visit 12a Buoy. My son had a huge lobster roll. With a Caesar salad including anchovies. Wife had grilled shrimp perfectly cooked with a fruit salad made to her choice of fruit. I had cobia with a poblano sauce. Served with a piece of cactus (a first for me!). The conch... More

Casual dining and wonderfully prepared seafood are what you will find at 12A Buoy. There is an extensive list of appetizers on the menu and some are large enough to serve as an entree for one.(The conch fritters would be one example of such an appetizer). The crunchy fried fish sandwich of the day (grouper when I was there) is... More

When coming off the Island hang a quick right and there it is. As a single woman that does not drink I. have never felt more comfortable at the bar having appetizers. Cold shrimp on ice. By the time your seated you can order something as simple as a fish sandwich or a 4 star entree. yummy yummy yummy .

I heard and read all the reviews....and, I am a natural skeptic and a critic. But in this case, the hype was spot on correct! 12A Buoy is absolutely fantastic! I went here this week with 2 very "in the know" locals who told me they were taking me to the very best place for seafood. It did not disappoint.... More
