We chose this place based on TA and Yelp reviews. We must have just had one of those nights. We waited for our table for approximately 45 minutes. No problem - we expected that. Ordered appetizer and meal soon after. Portabello mushroom appetizer was good and on time. Then - we waited and waited. People that were seated after us... More

My soup was way too salty, and the lobster was nowhere to be found. My husband's clam chowder was way better. The blackened Mahi sandwich was fresh and had a decent amount of fish in it. The beer was cold, and the prices average. The waitress was the WORST! I think this was the first time I ever left a... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at the 12A Buoy tonight. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside and small interior isn't very impressive either. However, what the place lacks in atmosphere the food more than makes up for. Each of our foresome ordered a different fish entree. I had the crab stuffed shrimp wth a side of coleslaw and... More

Our cousins took us and knew a few of the great items....the fish dip was the best ever. The dishes were focused on fresh seafood but were served in interesting ways with great sauces. Atmosphere was ok but you would not go here for the atmosphere. GREAT Seafood

This is definitely my favorite place to go for a great seafood dinner when I'm in town. Last night we went there and had the absolute best service ever! Lauren was our waitress. If you are able to get in her section, you won't be disappointed. So friendly, kind, and extremely accommodating. Just a great experience.

It was our first stop in Fort Peirce, but it won't be the last. We just tried 3 of the appetizers and all three were great, Lobster mac and cheese, tai shrimp and conch fritters all really good and the place is warm and friendly

Our first stop after arriving at PBI was for lunch. We went directly to 12A Bouy and enjoyed 77 degree sunny weather on the deck. I had a delicious mahi, mahi fish sandwich with fries. Lettuce, tomato and dill tartar sauce and dill pickle was the perfect accompaniments. My husband enjoyed the catch of the day, snapper on a bed... More
