Unfortunately we had a nice young man wait on us that needs to stay in school and forget about the food service industry. He said it was his second day. He opened the bottle of wine but forgot to bring the glasses. After a long wait they brought the wrong appetizer. Apologized , and moments later brought the entree. Unfortunately... More

The service is very friendly and available to ensure you enjoy your visit. Tables available outside with a nice moonlit view. The portions are very large. The food is fine. The lobster bisque was tasty but not worth a special trip. The key lime pie was the highlight.

We had spent several hours in Miami area traffic and were anxious to spend the evening in Key West. We were ready for a break as we arrived in Key Largo. It was a bit out of the way but so worth finding The Buzzard's Roost. We were given a table by the water with a great view. We all... More

This was a great place to stop and eat! We stayed in Homestead so the Keys were close and water front dining is always a welcome when in Florida. The calamari was wonderful and the conch fritters were too! The hog fish sandwich was HUGE and was enough for two people. The service was great and the staff was very... More

This was a great find during our drive from Miami to Key West. We were seated outside by the water in the back where we had a great view of the water, birds (pelicans, flamingos, etc.), and fishing boats going in and out of the marina. The service was very pleasant and our orders came promptly. I had the breaded... More

Our group of 4 enjoyed different dishes--Caesar salad, green salad with bacon and cheese, lobster salad sandwich and a hamburger. All dishes were fresh and well prepared. We ate outdoors at a marina and enjoyed steel drum music.

When you're driving along the Overseas Highway from Miami to Key West and you arrive at Key Largo, you have to stop. Remember the 1948 movie with Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson and Lionel Barrymore? It put Key Largo on the map. So my wife and I decided to have lunch at The Buzzard's Roost, which sounds like... More
