My family came in on a Friday night. They looked pretty busy, but we didn't wait more than a couple minutes for a booth. Our server was friendly and accommodating (even to our daughter's request for more crayons). The restaurant has a great fishing theme with tons of personal photos of fish caught on the walls. I ordered fried shrimp,... More

Wow..we walked in the front door, happily greeted. Host cleaned table, while we waited by the door, 4 servers asked if we needed assistance. It just got better from there. Bacon wrapped Sea Scallops for an app. Melted in our mouths like butter. Hubby had Swordfish, tender, well seasoned. Amazing. I had the famous fish tacos. To die for. Yellow... More

Try the fish tacos. Outstanding, best you'll ever have! Robbi is the owner and she also waits tables. A very relaxed atmosphere. A little noisy but that's part of the fun.

My husband and I spent a week in Venice Sep. 7-14. Based on reviews on Trip Advisor we wanted to check this place out. Nice decor, great service and the food was delicious! My husband had a shrimp dish and I had the fish tacos. We both enjoyed our meals, but the fish tacos were awesome! We will return.

I wrote a review back in August informing the many fans of Robbi's Reef that it had been sold and expressed concerns about the impact that would have on our most favored restaurant in Venice. After a couple of visits I am pleased to report that the transition has been seamless...Most of the wait staff and kitchen people are still... More

A Thursday night in September was very busy. Got seated quickly and all four of us had great meals. A taco salad was delicious and enough for 2 meals. Service was wonderful. Reasonable pricing. Will return

I love to seek out places that you would never think of trying that are tucked away in little plaza's or out of the way locations.. I like going to solo owner establishments. ( non-franchises) well this is one of those places. We went there on Friday night and had Fish and Chips and Shrimp. Both for very, very good... More

I ate at the bar, service was good and food was hot out of the kitchen. Fried shrimp were tasty and prepared well but how much fried fish can one person eat? Could expand menu to include some fresh sauteed or grilled fish.

The fish tacos are the best on the sun coast!Their smoked fish was as good as it gets. Their Gumbo is unbelievable! And their portions are huge! But the highlight was the Bayou Willy Pasta! Pasta & seafood & Andouille Sausage! The best meal we have had on the Sun Coast! Robbie's Reef is hidden in a little strip store... More

My father and I went here because we were wanting to eat at someplace different. We went based on reviews and confirmed the good reviews. Service was a pleasure. Traci was a server and she was a delight. Food was good and the key lime pie wasn't as good as my dad's but a close second and the best I've... More
