Never having thought I would ever need to write a review for Capt. Charlie's Reef Grill, I am disturbed by to read the negative "uninformed reviews" I have seen her. So, here is a Native Son's take on this: Having been born here over sixty years ago and being a fisherman my whole life, I can honestly say there has... More

We knew going in we would have a long wait. We didnt mind the wait at all. We sat at the waiting bar and had a drink while we waited. Once we were seated our waitress flew over to the table, and asked if we wanted drinks. My husband tried to ask her about some of the beers, but she... More

Busy seafood resturant. We went early (5:30 pm) and were seated immediately. By the time we left there were people waiting for tables. Excellent service. Extensive menu including local seafood. I always check the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch before ordering and was pleased to see sustainably fish listed. Waiter was well informed on the origins of menu offerings and he... More

This local dive does not take reservations , so plan on waiting awhile. They do have a wine bar a couple of storefronts down where you can wait and have a beer or glass of wine. There is also a little café next door that serve one and two dollar beers. We went with group of six on a Wednesday... More

Very informal but the food was amazing. They're always busy so plan on waiting. They have a bar 3 doors down, they actually call it that, where you can wait. They only serve wine or beer there and in the restaurant as well. My husband and I didn't want to wait the hour for a table so we agreed to... More

Wait is always long, but we visit every time we visit Jupiter. We always wait in the adjoining bar. We waited an hour with great wine and better friends. Food was delicious as always, I had the red snapper blackened...delish. Service was awesome...See you next year!

Love Reef grille as we are locals and visit the restaurant on a semi frequent basis. Friends came in from out of town and wanted to visit Reef. Long wait as usual with the only downside being the hostess who calls for guests. She was rude and not friendly. The seafood is one of the best in Palm Beach county... More

I don't get the rave reviews for this place. I'm obviously in the minority be cayuse of all the people waiting on line. Yogi used to say nobody goes there anymore cause it's too crowded. The food is very average. The servers are not friendly, something I consider very necessary for all servers. There is no ambiance and the place... More
