Great Service and Food

The current location of this restaurant is fairly small but they accommodated our large group of 18 for a great lunch. We had two servers and they were very efficient.

We visited this restaurant for lunch with friends. Our wives chose fish (one had crab cakes & the other had salmon.) My buddy & I chose the Philly Steak sandwich. Each member of our group was very happy with their selection. The waitress was friendly. The service was good. Serve time was reasonable. Do not expect a nice quiet place... More

We just moved to Venice and were given a gift card for this restaurant. It is quite small but we arrived early so no wait. We sat at the bar instead of a small table for two. The bartender was very friendly and made suggestions at our request. We both had local, fresh fish and were glad we did. I... More

We stopped in on a recent trip to Venice after seeing the TA reviews. This is our kind of place -- little "Old Florida" strip mall location, but absolutely excellent food for a good price. The place is comfortable and homey. My DH had the catfish po-boy and thought it was the best he had ever had -- although the... More

We love to go to locally owned places and tonight reminded me of the reason. Robbie's is a little hole in the wall gem. It's located in a strip mall and it's very small. Our waitress Vicki was friendly and very attentive. We had fried okra and hush puppies for appetizers that are very good. Our table had orders of... More

Great service, good tacos, They need to get a good mango salsa and use cabbage instead of lettuce then they would be the best fish tacos on the coast. Cannot wait until the new location opens.

While exploring Venice Florida we decided to have a quick dinner at Robbi's Reef. I had the fresh fish and chips and my wife had the fish taco's. Both meals were quite substantial and delicious. The service was quick and the staff friendly and helpful. Excited to hear they are moving to a new location which will provide more seating... More

Went here twice during this past month. I always get the fish tacos, as they have always been my barometer for fish tacos. I've been disappointed the last 2 times. Usually, the first bite is a revelation--not so today. I thought maybe it was just old lettuce in the tacos last time but today the same thing. They must be... More

Good seafood offerings, small local restaurant , only seats maybe 50? So be prepared to wait awhile. Fairly fast service once seated and key lime pie is good.
