Excellent food and great service. Sara, our waitress was a gem. Sh's been there a while and is very knowledgable about everything on the menu. Their grouper, while a relatively small serving, was very tasty. I'm a lover of fried green tomatoes. Their appetizer presentation was bland and didn't have the tartness they should have. I fry mine in bacon... More

Beginning with the seating experience, leading to the perfect choice of micro brewery offerings and server's personal favorite entree, the entire dining experience kept its upgrade tempo culminating to the enthusiastic encouragement for our party of three to share a delectable desert: key lime pie extraordinaire.

Were were pleasantly surprised by the beadth of offerings. Fresh shrimp, crab legs, prime rib and many other hot entrees. Breakfast offerings were standard. Mimosas were included and unlimited. We enjoyed that responsibly. One nice touch is that the server offers fresh made egg benedict to order right from the start. It was a sunny February day with a very... More

Took my parents here last week when they were in town. Hadn't been here in several years and was really quite nervous. We called and got reservations but arrived early and were treated with a window seat. The view is amazing but the service and food made the experience what it was. Laura P was our waitress and she was... More

I booked a hotel nearby so we could explore St. Augustine. Arriving after a long drive we looked forward to a quiet meal in a refined place. The Reef filled the bill perfectly. Based on a TripAdvisor search showing pictures of white table cloths, we set off to an OpenTable reservation. We arrived at sunset which cast a warm glow... More

I like the location and easy parking. I ate in the bar area which had a real good local musician playing. The wine list is decent (even though they dont have everything on it) The menu reads good with plenty of options. I ordered the Prime rib rare and it came out Med rare. Thats not the end of the...

We stopped for lunch and we're looking for seafood and fish. The menu is great, loaded with possibilities. The server was knowledgeable and was able to help with recommendations. The chef has Caribbean background and it is evident in the menu and food. Everything was fresh, prepared well and delicious. We sat by the window and felt like we were... More

We happen to be in the North Beach RV park right across the Hwy from the Reef restaurant. After a trip exploring old town St A we decided to go home to check out this restaurant. We stuck to seafood. I had a seafood bouillabaise and my wife a seafood fetuccini with mussels, jumbo shrimp, large scallops, and clams. The... More
