Great place to eat, if you can get a seat. Very popular place to eat. Outside is wonderful weather permitting. We only go off season!

Wonderful food, great fish sandwich and salad with fish. Good service and pleasant outdoor eating area. We had to wait a short time, but so worth it!!

Visited with a party of 4 around 5pm on a Wednesday night. Easy parking, short wait of less than 15 minutes. No waiting area though & it was raining so we grabbed beers & stood near the bar. This is a small establishment but the food is delicious. We had crab cakes & conch fritters (my favorite!) as well as... More

Went to visit a friend on his boat at the City Marina. He told us 12A Buoy was his favorite. We understood why. Great food - good prices. Food was so good we went back for lunch on Saturday! Even better....got ahead of the lines! Loved the fried shrimp basket - lightly breaded, split the meat before cooking, and the... More

Finally visited this after several friends said it was great. Can only comment on what we tried: Bowll of Clam Chowder. Large portion but lukewarm and not many clams. For a cream soup, I prefer hot because it gets cold and stiff very quickly. Tuna wontons- the tuna was WAY over marinated in soysauce. I like soy sauce but nearly... More

We ate inside...very noisy. Four couples and we really had to almost shout to be heard. Only serve beer and wine so if you want a cocktail like me, not the place for you. Service not very good but the food was very delicious!! All 8 of us loved what we ordered!

This was our second visit to 12A Buoy and both visits have been great! The food is very good and the presentation of each plate was beautiful. One word of caution is they don't take reservations so you do have to go prepared to wait for a table. They also have a small kitchen so you also need to relax... More

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
