Last weekend, I started out heading back to Crawdaddy’s in Jensen Beach. It is a New Orleans place with adequate food and good bands. But I got detoured by nearby Conchy Joe’s. It was busy, so I tried it. To make a long story short, it could be on one of those “Kitchen Nightmare” shows by Gordon Ramsay.
Moving on, I drove 20-miles north to Fort Pierce and 12A Buoy. I had been there once before, but it was so crowded that I was not in a good mood to try it properly. I had back then their famed lobster macaroni and cheese, which was terrific, and huge mud pie dessert.
The kitchen is competent, unlike most of South Florida kitchens. Of note, Gordon Ramsay loves 12A Buoy. He visited and there is a photo of him.
Tonight, I went back on a Sunday. It is much less hectic.
12A Buoy reminds me a lot of Monterey Fish House, which is also packed with locals. I can recommend this place.
