If you live on the Prairies, this is the place to experience if you want a view of the Atlantic Ocean! The service and food was excellent. Fresh seafood along with a view of the Ocean from the inside was great. Threats of a rain storm made sitting outside not possible. Yes , I would recommend this restaurant to others.... More

I take out-of-town friends and family to this restaurant frequently. It's one of the few restaurants where you can sit and enjoy a quiet beach view. If money is an issue, I suggest going at lunch. The dinner menu can be a little more pricey. But the food is great and the atmosphere is even better.

We stopped in on a very unbusy July 4 for a glass of wine, yet the bartender seemed to treat us as if she had a lot to do before she got to us. We did sample some white wine, but by the time we chose one, frankly, I was not in the mood to drink. I felt we were... More

I am a local that lives in St Augustine and I was on vacation the week of July 4th. I wanted a crab cake sandwich so I stopped into the Reef. The crab cake sandwich was so awesome, that I went back the next day with my fiancé for lunch. Service was great too!

Most vegetarians refuse to eat meat because they do not believe in ingesting animals. This is not only a personal choice by many but a social and religious one. When I immediately brought this to the manager Jeremy Ticehurst's attention, it practically cut me off, grabbed my salad and went back to the kitchen. I had told our waitress when... More

Once again, I am very sorry for this occurrence. In fact I do understand personal diets as like you my girl friend of 10 years does not eat, by choice, land based animal protein. We made a mistake, a silly, easily avoidable mistake which had very serious and far reaching consequences. When we make mistakes, I don't make excuses, I... 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.
