Reef came highly recommended and we were very disappointed. Maybe because the first reservation we could get was for 1 pm but they were not cooking fresh waffles or Eggs Benedict as advertised. They had no bacon or andouille sausage, the grits were 98% empty...More

Outside dining available. Can be beautiful, but also may be windy. Happy hour available with reasonable prices. Seafood specials, which were very good. Very noisy restaurant and not too much ambiance. Attentive service. Reasonably priced. Only can speak for seafood.

Had a really nice dinner here. They got the main order wrong and offered to replace it but we decided to accept what was delivered which was very tasty. They comped us dessert because of the mix-up.

Outside beachfront tables with a view I haven't found anywhere else. Not good for inclement weather. Salad fixins' were all fresh. The aroma of the authentic fish chowder was intoxicating. Limited vegetable choices. Live entertainment in the bar. Free parking. Friendly staff

We had a wonderful meal as we looked out at the ocean from their beautiful patio. The seafood was fresh and the service was wonderful. Very friendly staff and even live music made our meal delightful. Highly recommended for a true seaside experience.

The seafood chowder was fantastic. A little spice made for a deliciously different creamy chowder. Lots of seafood in it. Had several of the appetizers - calamari, crab cakes, scallop tostada - loved them all. Atmosphere is casual, but white table cloths in the dining...More
