We stopped to eat on our way back in to Key Largo after a visit to the Everglades. The screened in porch was a great place to eat and the view down the marina was nice. The food and service were both very good. They carry local beer and that was enjoyable. This is a spot we would go back... More

We stopped by for Happy Hour and dinner. It was actually pretty hard to find, but worth the extra effort. The tacos offered on the Happy Hour menu were delicious. The Smoked Fish Dip with Armenian heart shaped Lavosh crackers was the best we had in the Keys. The Coconut Cake with the pineapple rum sauce should not be missed!!... More

We stopped in after a long day of traveling. Unfortunately no tables were open on the screened porch and the hostess told us the deck was too buggy. We were a little disappointed about sitting in the dining room and had hoped to enjoy the atmosphere of the Keys. The "buzzard wings" were great and the sauce was excellent. The... More

While we weren’t initially sure of the location, it was just off Route 1 and down Abaco Road to Cayman Lane then toward the water! It is located on the northern end of Key Largo. (You can also turn off Route 1 at... More

It was so great to pull up in the boat and climb into the restaurant. They gave us plenty of water to rehydrate. The food was great. Came hot and quick. I'd definitely go back.

As you enter the Keys, on the north side of Key Largo the Roost is a must visit destination. Friendly service, great menu and you can sit with your pet overlooking the marina. On our most recent visit all ordered the Hogfish. They can prepare it several different ways; we have come back again and again to try them all.... More
