almost an accidental visit, did not know they were open just this week. Friendly staff, eager, managers visited our table, sought our insights, really hope this keeps up! But best of all, they have several dishes and sauces (see siracha bacon and mango chutney made...in house) and at least one spectacular fish dish (see yellow tail snapper) that separates them from the million beach bars and restaurants and good grouper sandwiches from here to Pass A Grille.More

The staff was really wonderful and food is too! My son and I have allergies that make ordering difficult and the staff really worked together as a team to keep us safe. We are very impressed and will be back! Thank you!!!

From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by the staff. We initially had a wait so we went to the upstairs bar where we able to find a table. The bar staff was very accommodating and made several excellent recommendations from drinks to dinner...choices. I had their signature 5 o'clock somewhere cocktail which was better than expected. I would recommend the fried Shrimp as an appetizer, it was excellent. For dinner we had the blacken grouper and the fish tacos along with a side of the Brussel sprouts which were the best I ever had. Overall an excellent dining experience.More

Great quality food, well prepared and presented. Come with a big appetite. Many breakfast dishes are shareable. Good prices and fantastic outdoor seating with a beautiful view. Would have given five stars except that staff was grouchy and not very friendly. They were a three.

Perfect place for a Christmas brunch! We loved the outside deck with great views. The food was tasty and well prepared with fresh ingredients. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and area. Thank you Pam M.

Nice spot to have lunch outside. There is an upper level where the view is probable better. The food was good, but the service was very slow (50 minutes to get our food). It was obvious that they were understaffed that day and the ones...there were working as hard/fast as they could.More

Amazing food, great staff, nice view and a bonus that they offered covered seating since it was raining on us. We got to watch dolphins play as we ate. The food was excellent. Highly recommend!

My wife and I are spending October 7 through November 5 in the Treasure Island - St Pete Beach area. Today we went to Buoys Waterfront Bar and Grill for brunch, after brunching every Sunday all over. Today we hit it! Bouys is the absolute...best. Great menu great service good prices. Now let us also say that Felix Vega is the best bartender we have met in the entire area. His specialty is attention to detail. We give our highest recommendation to both Buoys and Felix!More
