From the time we’re greeted with a smile and chose to sit outside we were promptly again greeted by Shelby. She had some good recommendations and we chose the Caesar and the chowder which is clam and conch chowder (forgot its menu name). Both were...More

Went to 12A Buoy with a party of 6. Was really busy but we got an outside table after a short wait. The food, atmosphere and service was just awesome. Prices were reasonable. Highly recommend this place.

We arrived exactly at 11:00Am on a Friday. Seated immediately and the service during the entire meal was very good. The fresh grilled mahi-mahi sandwich was delicious but the star of the meal was the lobster bisque, probably one of the best I have ever...More

We have eaten many great tasting, reasonably priced lunches at 12A Buoy, and, therefore, we were totally unprepared for the high prices and offerings at dinner time. We ordered sandwiches and appetizers because of price of entrees and fear of small quantity on plates for...More

We've probably eaten there 5-10 times by now and so far we have never had a bad meal and most have been great ! The accommodations won't win any prizes and the high prices are justified only by the food. We will keep going back...More

I don't think they take reservations. Sometime there is a wait and sometimes not. It is worth the wait.

No, but if you arrive early or around 7 you get seated pretty quickly. If it’s bad weather (ok it happens once in awhile here) then it’s limited seating inside.
