Awesome yet again!

This was our second visit to Robbi's Reef and it was just as awesome. We had an appetizer of bacon wrapped scallops and they just melted in your mouth. Robbi's is consistent everytime you eat here. We had to wait a few minutes for a table on a Thursday night, but it was worth the wait.

Since I had never been, I thought I would try this "hole in the wall" for lunch today, and I was quite impressed with the good service and great food. Place was pretty crowded, and that's saying a lot now that our "tourist season" is over. Waitress Megan took very good care of me, without being obtrusive. There were a... More

In a strip mall? After reading reviews of others we decided to give Robbi's a try. Yummy food and good size portions. There were 4 in our party, we had fried, grilled and blackened fish/seafood....all were prepared to our liking. Lightly breaded and not overly seasoned. Onion rings on Thursday.....perfect, and give the potato salad a try too. Small and... More

We went to this place because of the reviews on TA, they were right on. The place is always crowded with locals and the food and the service would be the reason. You would likely pass this place as it is in a small strip mall. That would be a mistake.

Two words...yum yum!! Amberjack sandwich was to die for while the crabcakes were even better!! Big kahuna burger is humongous and very tasty. New owners were fun, great southern people! Will definitely be back!!

This is one of those hidden in a strip mall great places to eat. Parking is not bad but try to avoid the busy times as it is a well known place to eat. Not much to look at from the outside but inside is a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere of great eats. Nothing fancy for decor as it is... More

We were only in Venice for one night so we used trip advisor to help us choose a place to eat. What a great choice, people coming out said the food was good and it was! We had blackened catfish and fish and chips. Both really nicely cooked and served piping hot and good portions. We followed up with Key... More

Friends in Venice swear by this place, especially fish tacos and blackened scallops, etc. We have been twice. The first visit was really good, shrimp, etc. cooked just right. It is a friendly place and you feel welcome. Our second visit was good but not as good as the previous time. It was packed and I felt that the service,... More

Don't be fooled that it is tucked in a little mini mall this place is amazing! My wife and I had seafood gumbo, bayou Willys pasta, fish tacos, and key lime pie. I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed everything. Once in this place it is a little noisy but not bad and you don't even know you are inside... More

My parents took me here for my birthday. I always try to eat at a restaurant that I have never been to on my birthday which has caused me a few ruined birthday meals, but Robbi's Reef was a pleasant surprise. We all had the fish tacos and they were delicious! The fish tasted fresh and not at all fishy.... More
