We enjoyed a wide range of treats during last night's dinner at the Reef! I had incredible sea scallops that were large, rich, and perfectly prepared in a citrus glaze. Friends had the ever popular prime rib, and fish with an Oscar topping. Also delicious was the shrimp and grits! We appreciated the prompt and gracious service, the delicious fare,... More

This was my second time eating here. First time was outside (view was awesome), this time was inside. The view was still lovely, and there was live music which we really enjoyed. We chose a variety of appetizers from the happy hour menu and they were all terrific with surprisingly large portions for the price.

Amazing food and amazing views! This was our first anniversary and it was important to find the right place for dinner. We started off with a glass of wine in the bar before we had dinner. The mood was very causal when we sat down for dinner, and everything we ordered exceeded our expectations

Excellent seafood restaurant. Medium price. Great for large groups. Seating indoor or outdoor weather permitting. Right on the water. Service excellent and very knowledgeable about menu. Had two meals there and both were excellent. Wide assortment on menu. Appetizers were to die for.

Nice location, but they don't do much to capitalize on the view. Every time I have been, I am surprised when I get the bill. Always seems very overpriced.

Birthday celebration lunch was a winner. Rainy day so it wasn't crowded but the service was attentive and the food was very good. Seated at a table looking out on a few beach goers was a pleasant way to dine. The lobster roll was the first I had ever had and it was packed with lobster and flavor. My husband... More
