We took a three hour bike ride using the free bikes provided at our resort, Playa Largo. After an hour of biking, we happened upon a sign pointing to the Buzzard's Roost which turned out to be a good decision. The beers were cold and the shrimp quesadillas were wonderful. Good service and a true Key Largo vibe made our... More

Excellent food within a wonderful setting & staff. We had the sampler platter & steamed Oysters day one, then fried hogfish sandwich with fries. There is seating indoors, outside screened patio or near water seen in picture. Reasonable prices.

Located in a marina area, off of the beaten path. Atmosphere is very relaxed wth Christmas lights decorating the area, as well as lanterns. Waterfall running, great food with a diverse menu from 10$ burgers to 40$ steaks, and any seafood option in between. Great place, glad we found it thanks to TripAdvisor

It is always difficult to review restaurants with vastly different backgrounds and styles. You might think how could this get a 4 when some top fine dining places got also a 4 from me? Well one needs to compare to what is available in the area. This place gives decent or better than decent and honest food for the area.... More

Nice relaxed spot tucked away as you come into Key Largo. My wife and I stopped for a late lunch on our drive down to Islamorada after coming in from FLL. We enjoyed both our food and drink, decent service and a pretty cool view out of the marina to open water. I wouldn't hesitate to return!

Our family group of five visited this restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed a pasta dish, sirloin steak, fried shrimp, and salads. All the food was well presented, nice size portions and tasty. The ambience outside is very nice and enjoyable. Unfortunately, our service was not the best, we were somewhat forgotten and in fact all of our meals did not... More

A small restaurant serving a variety of fresh seafood, sandwiches, salads. Indoor dining room with screens look out over outside tables and a small inlet leading to the marina. Active boat scene. Friendly service. Can get crowded with family groups.

Great view, casual spot. We waited over 45 minutes for a table. There were tables available, however, staff seemed to be short. We enjoyed an appetizer at the bar while we waited so it was not a big deal. The food was good but took a while to come out.
