Food was very good; we had crab cakes as appetizers, shrimp scampi and seafood sample as entrees. Service was first class, plenty parking available. Near Card Sound road, we will return.

You can't over advertise our weather, its perfect. Buzzard's has a good decor just open up the doors and let the weather come in. Its stone crab season so let those lovely staff throw away the menu, bring some dipping sauce stone crab and Miller Lite.

We were on our way back to the Fort Lauderdale airport and wanted to eat lunch just one more time in the Keys. Found this by mistake but so glad we did. Food was good, service was great and prices were reasonable.

We are outside on the dock under the lights. It was stone crab season and we were delighted by our appetizer with their special dipping sauce. We then split a very mediocre wedge...dressing was clearly not made in house. For the main course we had extremely fresh, delicately fried shrimp served with a spicy cocktail sauce. Overall a great experience!

This was our first stop of our vacation, driving from Miami to Islamorada. Thought they oversold the water view location as it is only a canal, but we still enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was super nice, and all of her recommendations were spot on. Food was very good, as were specialty cocktails. Our only negative experience came when we... More

This place was great! We caught fish and took it there to have it cooked per the recommendation of Capt Frank(Mr. Nice). It was fabulous! We got Bert style and Almond and blackened. Bert Style was our favorite. We also got the coconut cream cake that was to die for!! You must try it! Nice, romantic atmosphere as well.

What a hidden gem. Seafood appetizer was awesome. Hogfish was light and flavorful It's not what I expected when we drove up! I thought we were lost. The history is interesting! Clean and friendly too!
