Had a late dinner here - this was my best meal of this trip! The seafood pasta dish was perfect! Location has been used on Bloodline series so if you are a fan check it out! Desserts were incredible. Wait staff was attentive and friendly.

We were promptly greated & seated & forgotten about. A very busy waitress took our table even though we werent in her section. Brook was wonderful. Drinks came & we ordered. Took some time but it was fairly busy. My fish tacos were good but i had to eat with a fork & knife as they were soggy. I think... More

We were told about this great place by a friend. So glad we went. Our waiter Ben was on the ball, friendly and accommodating...Food was fantastic, drinks were good. I had the smoked fish dip, and my wife had the chicken wings for appetizers. For an entree we were too full, so we asked if we could split an entree...... More

Went to dinner here on a Sunday night place was crowded and parking was tough . We had to wait a long time for service but it was worth it. Food was great had a seafood combo that was plentiful and cooked perfectly. Salads were good too. Recommend this place but plan on waiting even if you have reservations.

Teriyaki wings were great, spinach and artichoke dip was yummy and the atmosphere outside felt like we were on vacation even though we weren't. Definitely a hidden gem.

Unfortunately we had a nice young man wait on us that needs to stay in school and forget about the food service industry. He said it was his second day. He opened the bottle of wine but forgot to bring the glasses. After a long wait they brought the wrong appetizer. Apologized , and moments later brought the entree. Unfortunately... More

The service is very friendly and available to ensure you enjoy your visit. Tables available outside with a nice moonlit view. The portions are very large. The food is fine. The lobster bisque was tasty but not worth a special trip. The key lime pie was the highlight.

We had spent several hours in Miami area traffic and were anxious to spend the evening in Key West. We were ready for a break as we arrived in Key Largo. It was a bit out of the way but so worth finding The Buzzard's Roost. We were given a table by the water with a great view. We all... More

This was a great place to stop and eat! We stayed in Homestead so the Keys were close and water front dining is always a welcome when in Florida. The calamari was wonderful and the conch fritters were too! The hog fish sandwich was HUGE and was enough for two people. The service was great and the staff was very... More

This was a great find during our drive from Miami to Key West. We were seated outside by the water in the back where we had a great view of the water, birds (pelicans, flamingos, etc.), and fishing boats going in and out of the marina. The service was very pleasant and our orders came promptly. I had the breaded... More
