We went on a Friday night and their singing cowboy was performing. He was great! Quite the comedian. He has a following and for his first 45 minutes, it was standing room only. After that, the crowd let up a bit and seats became available....More

The bar was very close to our rooms at the lodge. We did not have restuarant reservations for Saturday evening, but had no trouble getting a table at the Bar. We were there prior to the band performing, it did get crowded about 8:30.

Bluegreen has oversold this resort so much that you can barely find a place to eat without fighting a mob to get a seat. When you do finially get a seat be prepared for a overpriced menu with sub par food.... just a rip off

Description
Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard Bar. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
