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.

Buzzard's Roost is one of the more touristy restaurants on Key Largo. They have a full menu with Burgers, Seafood, Pasta's, your standard fare. They do however though have great burgers. You also have the option to eat outside, just ask about the mosquito's first.

Awesome restaurant and great food. Our server jade did an amazing job with our group of 9. He paid attention to our party and knew who was with who before we told them. Key lime pie was good but coconut cake was amazing! Check this place out. Awesome vibe but off the path!

As, I’m sure, do others, on our way to our lodging in Marathon, we like to stop in Key Largo for lunch. We had an excellent lunch at the Buzzard’s Roost. It has an attractive setting at the end of a cut for boat docks. It has fully-inside, screened-porch, and fully-outside dining options. Our first choice – fully outside –... More
