I looked up reviews of the 12A Buoy on Trip Advisor and decided it would be a great place for lunch. Upon arrival, I was dubious since the locale appeared more like a waterfront bar than a highly recommended restaurant. Looks can be deceiving.

We spent the 4th in Florida avoiding the crowds BUT the 12a was as crowded in July as the last time we had eaten there in March (in-season). Food is center place - decor is rickety Florida but the food is excellent. Scallops may be the best we ever tasted.

So many seafood stops are a big let down. Not this one. Great food and service. If I lived there it would be my #1.
