Food was okay, but pricey. Drink menu a bit limited, not what you'd want from a beach side place. Good view of the beach though, and staff is friendly.

We had a wonderful brunch with a great selection. Plenty of seafood, prime rib, pork loin, sausage links ( just a bit of a "bite"), bacon, ham, fresh fruits, omelet station, cheeses and biscuits that are huge. Also yummmmmy blintz'. The guy who was our server was great the woman a little ditzy. My son enjoyed the crab legs.oddly enough... More

The seafood chowder was awesome. The flavor was enjoyable. My husband had the blackened swordfish. It was really good. The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful with choices.

I ate dinner here. First time visit. Excellent service. A nice variety of seafood and meat with a few pasta dishes. Both items I had were from the daily special menu. Fish of the day was Chopia which is a white fish grilled. Excellent. I started with a chicken liver pate which was flavored with herbs and served with warm... More

A bit on the expensive side for the portions served. Maybe the American expectations, but I am sure my husband and friend would have left hungry had we not ordered appetizers. Wonderful flavor to all the dishes. Stuffed mushrooms were wonderful. Fried green tomatoes a bit greasy. Seafood chowder was spicy with lots of seafood. Lobster and shrimp risotto, fantastic!...

We have eaten lunch and dinner here a few times over the years, but when we tried the Sunday Brunch, we were HOOKED!! We go to the Reef at least twice a year for special occasions. This year we are looking forward to spending our anniversary of 40 years on September 21st enjoying it again! The food is always fresh... More

Good food, great atmosphere... But for the price, a brunch buffet better have sparkling clean dishes... Instead this place have dirt on every other plate. This place is expensive, and for that cost, I do not want to even know the servers are there. Pick up the dirty plate, but don't interrupts family discussion, it's just plain rude.

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.
