I want to start by saying that the food at this restaurant is very very good. From the oysters to the fish sandwich. The problem with this restaurant is they have one teenager running the show. She checks everyone in, determines what table are empty and seats the guests. One person cannot do all of this in a busy restaurant.... More

This is one of those places that you might drive (as we did the first time) if you are looking for more than the typical Florida coastal fare. After having eaten here though, it is now our must stop venue for every visit to North Hutchinson. Sitting outside, near the back of the deck is the best, but inside will... More

The food is fresh and good, the drinks are also good. The best part is the atmosphere. Whether you sit indoors or outside and look over the water or the night sky you will like this restaurant no matter what. Decent prices too.

The conch fritters and the lobster and shrimp canniloni were delicious. We sat outside which was beautiful but it started to rain. Servers were very helpful with suggestions.

My friend and I recently had to travel to Fort Pierce on business. While at the business a nice lady told us about the 12a buoy restaurant and recommended we have lunch there. We drove to the 12a buoy. The restaurant is next to a parking area for a boat launch. A great atmosphere for a seafood place! There was... More

Waited 20 minutes for a table and it was our second visit TOTALLY worth it. The menu has something for everyone only disappointment was there was an issue with a freezer so no desserts on the night we were there. GO it's terrific.

This place is always pretty busy so expect a wait but it is ALWAYS well worth it. Huge portions and beautiful presentation. We take our friends and family there every time they visit. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Live music sometimes. Very fresh seafood. Don't be afraid to try anything on the menu it's all delicious!
