On July 5,2014 we had our wedding here and it was amazing. Angie and her team of staff members did a excellent job making sure we were taken care of. Everything from the food to the wait staff was top notch. Everyone at my wedding commented on how nice the Reef Restaurant was and we all look forward to coming... More

Oh my gracious sakes, where do I begin. We started with the Fried Green Tomatoes - just delicious! The husband ordered the Seafood Trio - it was fantastic but look out for the datil grits - quite tasty as long as you can stand the heat. I thoroughly enjoyed the Citrus Salmon, totally delicious and the spinach - Shut the... More

The BEST coconut shrimp and spinach artichoke dip I have ever had! Fried green tomatoes are delicious but I prefer Harry's Seafood Restaurant a LITTLE bit more. Service was fast and you can view the ocean from any seat in house. Plus, appitizers and drinks are discounted during evening hours.

This restaurant is a yearly favorite tradition for our family vacation. But this time was a HUGE let down. We come with a large group(15) and we only had one server. She was scattered and took forever to comply with simple routine requests. The food itself was good, but the experience was not; therefore, prompting us to leave WITHOUT even... More

Katelyn took our reservation and was more than helpful! I was impressed before I got there. Jeremy was our waiter and took excellent care of us. Suggested a perfect wine, excellent dinner suggestions, and was friendly and attentive throughout the meal! We sat upstairs, outside and it was an intimate, enjoyable, beautiful atmosphere! We had the mushroom appetizer and while... More

The Reef offers a very tasty menu along with a great view. Unfortunately for us, the day we stopped to have dinner here, it was very very windy, and we had to sit inside. I can say that the silver lining for us was we probably paid alot more attention to the food, than we would have if we were... More

The Reef has been a family favorite for years and it never disappoints. I prefer weekdays to avoid crowds and a possible weekend wait. This is a very popular restaurant with locals and visitors to the area. If weather permits, the outside decks are great with wonderful views of this beautiful stretch of oceanfront. The high tables for 4 in... More

This was my third return to The Reef restaurant and each trip was delightful. The food quality,the service, and,the ocean view are remarkable. I fear with each return that my fond memories will exceed my expectations, but in this case, each return makes melook forward to the next visit to Saint Augustine and the Reef restaurant!!!

The staff is friendly. The food was fair plus to good. Mahi-Mahi grilled was good one day and overdone another day. The fries were good and hot one day and overdone the next. The kids ate chicken tenders and the last visit they forgot one of the plates. They offered to get it and must have rushed it. My kid... More
