The brunch is delicious. We enjoyed the food and the scenery. The view of the ocean is outstanding and the staff is cordial and very accommodating. .We look forward to going to the Reef at least once a month.

Stopped here for lunch on the way to St. Augustine and were so glad we did! The view is amazing; great outdoor seating right on the ocean. The food was delicious and well-prepared. The wine list was great, and the service was good as well. If you're looking for a great view along with a nice meal, give the Reef... More

We stopped in and found a great spot with a wonderful deck on the ocean. Ordered simple fare...fish sandwich and burger but both were excellent! Our server was a delight and we hope to return before we head back to the tundra. After lunch, we went for a walk on the beach and found some nice sea shell hunting. The... More

Went here for dinner - food was very good. I found the dinner menu a bit limited for my palate - BUT, that is not to say I would not recommend it to someone else. The view can not be beat. Was not able to stop in for the brunch which I did hear was spectacular. Have only heard wonderful... More

Went here on our last evening in St. Augustine, based on the recommendation of someone who knew someone, and not very well. Took a chance, and was so glad we did. It was the best meal we had that trip. The wait staff is outstanding. The young hostesses could use a bit more experience. We were seated right by the... More

We headed out to the Reef for a family dinner after enjoying the day on the beach. We arrived early for our reservation, but were quickly seated at a window table with a great view of the beach. Unfortunately, there are only a few basic choices for children's meals. So, we ordered off the regular menu and paid the up... More

Arrived ahead of reservation time and enjoyed libations at a bar window table! Appetizer Conch Fritters were as good as any ever... Piping Hot! Crunchy outside - firm, full flavored morsels of wonderful conch inside. Great - dipping sauce. A winner! Ordered the 18 oz Porterhouse. Steak cooked correctly, tender and well flavored - however the 3/4 inch think cut... More

Our family of 7 arrived at 7pm at Reef on a Friday night and, of course, had to wait some time for a table. We enjoyed the liquid refreshment and musical entertainment at the bar. After being seated and getting our meals we were very happy we had waited. The food was beyond everyone's expectations. From seafood to prime rib,... More
