I have been going here for both lunch and dinner for years. The one thing I like the most is the consistency of their food. It is always fresh. The owners will settle for nothing less. A good way to judge it success is how busy they are year round. It is by no means a tourist trap. They cater... More

EXCELLENT food, atmosphere, and service. Would definitely come back and highly recommend. Casual setting and very laid back. Fun saltwater tanks and photos throughout the restaurant.

We came here solely on reviews. Our server Justin was fantastic and always laughing. The fish and chips here tie as the best I've ever had with the New Zealand Red Grouper I had in Australia. The key lime pie here is as phenomenal as everyone says, so make sure you get a slice. If I get a chance, I'd... More

This place is definitely what you think of when you think of a Florida fishhouse. The menu makes it hard to order because it all sounds good! I enjoyed the blacken mahi poboy. The service was outstanding. Although its a "fishouse" they do the nice small touch things as changing the silverware between courses, grinding pepper on the salads,never letting... More

Wow, I'd almost given up on the human race, then I walked into Robbi's Reef! By the way, I didn't know the restaurant was here until I read a review of Trip Advisor, so thanks to all who share their experiences! The customer service is so awesome, and I don't mean just your personal server but all servers, they are... More

If delicious seafood with excellent service appeals to you, then go to robbi's reef . Their fish tacos (always all mahi) are out of sight. We had the special tonight, tile fish, and it tasted better than grouper to us. we love the potato salad, we love the homemade key lime pie. also factor in very generous portions and reasonable...

What a great and friendly place. Some of the best grilled grouper in Venice, when you can get it. Just go there you won't be disappointed. Prices are very good.

We dined at Robbi's Reef on the recommendation of our hotel desk clerk. What a great meal! The staff were friendly and our server was very knowledgeable and willing to make recommendations. Fresh scallops with pasta, tomatoes, and mushrooms in a light lobster cream sauce was the special and absolutely divine! I will be back in the area in a... More
