We went there for dinner and everything we ordered was very good. The food was very affordable and the place was kids friendly. We sat outside and my little one got to play in the sand with his cars. Great service. Our server kept checking on us to ensure we were happy with our orders. Only downside was some tourists... More

Oysters? Oh man were they good!!! Burgers? Melt in your mouth. Service? Impeccable! Location? Picture perfect! Price? A little high for Mexico, but totally worth everything we spent. I was very impressed with Wrecked at the Reef. We took our children there for lunch last week. We were able to try many different food items because there were 5 of... More

We enjoyed this place so much that we visited it twice on our overnight trip to Rocky Point. Our favorite dish was the seafood stew served in foil (can't remember the name). All the servers were friendly and made sure we were having fun. Come here if you want to dine by the beach.

Right on the beach off the beaten path yet easy to find. Good food. Ability to enjoy drinks on the beach dipping your toes into the Sea of Cortez. You can listen to music and play ping pong too.

I like the taco girll fish,seating out side and sip on cold bear. It's a clean place,but it's expensive for mexico. And the best is to pay by passes.no U.S. Dollars.they over charge you by exchange rate and conversion calculation. But can not beat the views. Ask the for the manue by the price in pesos!

At the end of the road, before you enter Cholla Bay, you will find Wrecked at the Reef. It has great food and a wonderful setting. The staff are always excellent! Come with a smile and a good time and you will not be disappointed. I recommend the local oysters and chicken wings, although I really have not had a... More

We always have at least one meal here. The food is (largely) fried bar food, but it's fresh and the views outside are great. It's a good choice for Sandy Beach visitors.
