Great food and service!

Met friends for a bite and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and service of this restaurant. It's off the beaten path and filled with local flair. Plan on going again and again!

Food is okay. Too much on the menu. My husbands dinner was great where mine was not. They have a huge menu and I think it's just too much. No one does all of this well. I think they have something here but need to figure out what they are good at and drop everything else.

The place has been owned by the same couple for years. During the winter (busy season) they are part of the wait staff. Most of he rest of the waitstaff have also been there for years. They are great at recommending menu items. They have 3 or more pages of food items. The wine selection is extensive, is fairly priced... More

If I'd written this review after our first visit, I'd have given Captain Chalie's a 5 star review without question. The restaurant is unapologetically boisterous and casual but the food was outstanding. Scallops were tender, perfect blackened and placed atop a salad with just the right touch of Gorgonzola and candied walnuts. We sampled a variety of the small plates... More

The last few times the food has been just ok. Going to give it a rest for a while - to many other place to go.

This is one of the reasons we moved to the Jupiter area. A fantastic hole in the wall with a very good wine list. We typically bring in our own fresh catch and they prepare it. But when we don't the small plate menu is stellar.

Visited two weeks ago with a girlfriend and the food was great. Decided to take my family on Sunday. The place was packed. The service was slow and mediocre. Ordered the fried oysters which my husband liked. The fried green tomatoes were soaked in oil. (I was sick to my stomach to follow my only bite and had to rush... More

I've been going to the Reef since shortly after they opened. The best bang for your buck, that's for sure. The seafood is the best around and all the locals know it! When it's season and there's an hour and a half wait, we go at 5! You can also have a glass of wine from their amazing collection, a... More

I have eaten here twice with my daughter who is a marine biologist. The food is awesome! It you are afraid of bones then order the grouper cheeks or tuna medallions. The handwritten full page is the daily catch. Grouper cheeks are on the handwritten page. If they have Triple Tail, I am told to definetly order. Both times I... More

Really nicely done election of seafood dishes and one of the best in the Jupiter/Juno Beach area. The only drawback is that during the snowbird season the place gets quite crowded and the wait is long.
