If you're in Venice, FL you must eat at Robbi's

Our first night in Venice, FL we were lucky enough to come across Robbi's Reef at 775 US HWY 41 Bypass South. Phone # 941-485-9196. Call now you'll be glad you did. Robbi's is in a small strip type row of shops a bit hard to find. Look for the small sign at the road. The staff and food were... read more

We were in Venice Florida 4-11-15 thru 4-17-15. We ate at Robbi's Reef 4 nights!. Everything we had was excellent, very well priced, service was extremely friendly. Portions were where I took some to with us and had plenty of left overs the next day. Fish Taco's, speciality fish and Pasta Willy were my fav. Oh yeah, the Key Lime... More

Stopped by because we wanted good fish. Robbi's Reef never disappoints. The fish tacos were great. Couldn't finish and had to take one home. Enjoyed the beans and rice, but they didn't agree with me. Got sick because they were too spicy for me. My husband had Wally's Bayou pasta. Loved it. This is not a restaurant one goes to... More

We visited the restaurant several nights ago. One of our party noticed the specials board, which listed bacon-wrapped scallops for $12.99, which he ordered. The wait staff asked if he wanted the appetizer or dinner. He ordered the dinner. He specifically mentioned that he saw the scallops on the board. She did not mention that the price for the meal...

Once again we had our best meal on vacation at Robbie's Reef! The new owner has not changed a thing! Don't mess with success! Keep up the good work!

My husband declared these the best fish tacos he's ever had. The blackened mahi-mahi was flavorful but not overly spicy, and the two tacos were generously packed and delicious. The biggest surprise as the rice and beans on the side - extremely flavorful, and a great accompaniment. At only $12.99, it was also a great deal. The service was very... More

We stopped by this restaurant based off the reviews on Trip Advisor. I totally agree with all of the comments. The fish tacos were amazing! Unfortunately they ran out of key lime pie though, so we didn't get to try that. Overall the service was very good, friendly and attentive. My only complaint was it was a little loud in... More

The service was good and the Mahi tacos were delicious. The restaurant is quite casual - one of those places where the quality of the food exceeds your expectations based on the location and decor. Definitely worth going back.
