“Excellent value at Buzzards Roost”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We dropped into Buzzards Roost on recommendation from locals. The food here is excellent, and very plentiful - unless you have a big appetite, appetizers aren't necessary and you will not eat your entrée !
A good selection of beers and wines is on offer, with a nice covered eating area outside. Service was very attentive. Well worth a visit.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We had trouble finding the Buzzards Roost because the name wasn't out front, it said Cove something. We stopped on the way home from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale and had burgers. They were very good, service was good. Nice shaded outside eating area.

“Ok, but....”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Atmosphere was nice, but food was wrong and waiter said, "well I don't speak Spanish, so I couldn't tell the chef how to make your food." Really? Pretty disappointed with that.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

The food was great! Server was very nice and accomodating. We had shrimp tacos, the lobster reuben and shrimp scampi. The portions were plentiful. The key lime pie was the best I think I ever had. Will definitely come back when we are in the area.
