Great food, great atmosphere, great service.

A visit to Robbi's Reef is a must with a seafood lovers menu plus burgers, chicken, meats for those that aren't. We've been here a couple of times, it gets very busy with a lively atmosphere. Just walk in and you get seated by pleasant and attentive staff as soon as a space appears. Then the... read more

Service, service, service! The owners and servers are a well oiled machine. Seated, ordered, served and PLEASANTLY served during a busy dinner time with no problems. Husband was very happy with fresh fish fried Southern style in cornmeal batter and I LOVED the Mr. Taco, a delicious shaved rib eye steak in two soft tacos with the best black beans... More

We wanted a good seafood dinner and found it at Robbi's Reef. Everything was very good from the fish to the french fries to the fantastic Key lime pie.

Hole in the wall with amazing, fresh seafood. One of the best restaurants in Venice! We've gone a few times and it's always been wonderful food and service. Fried catfish was TO DIE FOR as was the smoked fish dip and Mahi Tacos. Even when they're busy, food comes out fast. Super casual, one of the best fish dinners in... More

Everything was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The wait staff was spot on and the key lime pie was die for , the best I've had in Florida . It was well... More

Fish & Chips ($14) was the mission, and so they delivered well above expectation. Walls covered with photos of fishing exploits. Service was insanely good. Waitresses do a team effort and each and every one of them visited the table to ask how things were and did I need anything. Cod was a fresh, flavorful, and had aromas of top... More

We had some tasty fried haddock and grilled shrimp at the restaurant. It is located in a strip mall but once inside it had some character. It was very busy with I'm guessing locals.Great service.

Seafood in a strip mall. We stopped by on a Friday night and it was packed but the wait wasn't bad. We started with bacon wrapped scallops for an appetizer. They were very well done but for $13 we expected more than three. My wife got fried Gulf shrimp and I got blackened fish and shrimp. Both were excellent. For... More
