We have been to Cedar Reef Fish Camp in Venice numerous times since they opened a few years ago. We prefer to go to restaurants owned by "locals" since we are locals ourselves. We have always had a great meal at a great price, but the weekly $10.00 specials are our favorites. These include: Monday--Fish and Chips (lightly battered, sweet... More

This restaurant is a rare gem where value and quality meet excellence. A warm and casual atmosphere with amazing food! I love bringing friends and family here and the service is always right on. If you want fresh seafood in Venice, look no further.

Have been in Venice off and on for several years but never visited Cedar Reef. It was wonderful. My food was delicious, had the Wednesday night $10 salmon plank special, and husband was thrilled with his choice of the Surfboard Chicken. There is a $10 special offered daily. Atmosphere charming, staff friendly, prices great. Will definitely return.

For being in a strip mall, the place actually has smoe character on the outside. Picnic tables, and pets welcome outside. Great food, friendly service.

My husband and I went to CRFC for Monday fish and chips ( a bargain for$6.50) and were not disappointed. The 2 for 1 drinks work well for our budget and the entire staff from the greeting at the door to our server ( Bob) were warm and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed, and family oriented and we love to... More

Never having been here we wanted to sample so we shared......We started with the smoked fish spread served w/crackers, capers & onion...it was creamy and tasty..... then on the advice of our excellent server...

This was a pleasant surprise. It was our last night in Venice. We were greeted and seated quickly. We had a wonderful waitress. She was informative about the menu and made a few great suggestions. Service was quick and food was delicious. I could see this bring one of my favorite places to eat in Venice.

My wife and I have dined here many times over the years, visiting. Now we live here, 5 min away and both love the scallops. I usually order the blackened redfish which is outstanding! This is the first meal we had as residents after a looooong uhaul trip! Dont let the location fool you! The chef knows what he is... More

We found this one on Trip Advisor and figured with these ratings how could we go wrong?! When we arrive it was mobbed. We had "called ahead" but they didn't have our name. When I told them about their error they honored my call and moved us to the top of the list. We later figured out we'd called the... More

Stopped for lunch on a whim, ordered one of their $10.00 lunch specials. I choice the blackened tilapia which was very good. With it I choice slaw, very tasty instead of whatever came with the fish special. They even gave me 2 cups of it, so I was in seventh heaven. I did enjoy my lunch.
