A strip mall surprise

Located in a strip mall, I didn't know what to expect. Dining options were inside and outside, and we went for the inside, which was warmer than expected as the fans were failing. The barbecue scallops were ordinary, but the piece de resistance was my main - lobster lasagna. First time for this... read more

My husband wasn't sure what kind of place I was taking him too, this restaurant is tucked in the middle of a strip mall. DO NOT PASS IT BY!! I read all the reviews on Tripadvisor. I wanted good seafood, a more casual dining experience and not the huge over inflated prices. Cedar Reef fits all of these! My husband... More

My husband and I came in for lunch and had a cedar salmon lunch special that was delicious! It was a HUGE portion even for lunch. Wonderful atmosphere and great music. Our waitress was Lauren, she was very knowledgeable and sweet. For our first time being here it was great, will definitely be back!

We were a party of 8 and the hostess was able to seat us within 15 minutes despite being very busy. Rich was our waiter. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and was great with our kids. The food was delicious.

My son, wife and I got hungry while in Port Charlotte and the wife says - "Let's do some seafood." My son says - "Yeah but no chain. . . a family owned place would be great." So, 20 miles and 40 minutes later we park in front of the Cedar Reef Camp restaurant as I'd heard that the seafood... More

This is a small store-front restaurant with a varied menu and daily specials. The emphasis is seafood, but try the fried green tomatoes. The service was excellent. We had the lobster roll and the lobster lasagna (the Sunday special). The roll had a "ton" of lobster with a very light dressing and home-made chips for just $14.95. The lasagna had... More

cDuring a recent family vacation to Venice, FL my socially awkward pre-teen son initiated a rare request for an outing to a restaurant that serves alligator. This 11 year old boy has a unique interest in finding local flavor and experiencing new foods. He used his hand-me-down iphone to do a google search for a restaurant in our area that... More

We've eaten there twice in the past 4 months when staying locally. Both times (first dine in and second take-away) we've had the Sunday special lobster lasagna ( which is full of lobster, scallops, shrimp???? Lots of yummy stuff) and have totally enjoyed it. Hard to order anything else! Very highly recommend! Good friendly atmosphere.
