We had brunch last Sunday. What a large selection of everything. The crab legs were excellent! The champagne glass never got empty. Very friendly service. The live music was an unexpected pleasure. We will return.

We recently read a very negative review of the Reef Restaurant and felt compelled to share our experience. My wife and I have been going to the Reef location for over two decades. We were patrons when it was called Comptons, then McMulvey's Reef, and now the Reef. We can't recall ever seeing any insects, alive or dead, anywhere in... More

We went to the Reef again with another couple this past Saturday evening. Three of us ordered the Asian Tuna Salad. The tuna was well prepared, not all that tasty, but then again, seared tuna is not usually the tastiest thing you can find. The issue was in the salad. First, the only thing that even slightly resembled anything Asian... More

We tried this restaurant at the recommendation from a local tour guide, and so glad we did! The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and the atmosphere wonderful. Douglass, our waiter, was very attentive and knowledgeable. He clearly had a good knowledge of not only what the restaurant offered, but also of local ingredients (like peppers) used in the... More

I went to The Reef for my very first time today for lunch. Unfortunately this will be my last time. The service was absolutely pathetic. Like mind blowingly bad. I thought that it was some sort of joke that was being played on me and my boyfriend. But...alas, not the case. Even the table across from us were complaining to... More

Reef is a lovely location right on the ocean. You can choose to dine outside or in the dining room where many of the tables are by the windows with an ocean view. My husband ordered the pate as an appetizer, which he loved. He had the lamb shank as his entree, which disappeared from his plate so quicky as... More

My husband and I visited Florida recently to celebrate a big birthday. We happened to meet a young, local couple who gave us lots of restaurant recommendations and Reef was one of them.

Came in and got a great seat next to the beach at the outside dining area. Our service was second to none and very attentive to drinks and anything we needed at our table. My wife got steak and I went with the crab legs. The steak was very moist and full of flavor. I'm a seafood lover and those... More

As good as the food is it doesnt make up for the horrible service. The view was great, over looking the ocean, but once the sun goes down you cant see the spectacular view. Wish they had some kind of outdoor lighting since the view was this highlight of the evening. The service was horrible. I will not be going... More
