Went here kind of spur of the moment due to the mostly good reviews. The staff was very friendly they went out of their way to make my 3 year old feel special. That made us very happy. However the food was just average. Fish probably needed more seasoning and the gator chowder didn't have a ton of gator in... More

All my life I have eaten haddock, ordered there it was questionable if it was even real fish. I literally picked the whole piece of fish up with the tines of my fork and dropped it back on the plate. It did not flake, it freaking bounced. I think they pull food out of the freezer, zap it and then... More

Wonderful food in a casual setting. I had baked oysters, and they took me back to New Orleans - wonderful. Waiter was friendly, service was quick without making us feel rushed. This place deserves its high ranking.

My granddaughter and I decided to have lunch here instead of the chain around the corner. I'm happy we did, I really believe in the support of local business owners. The food was fast and very good. The service was exceptional as well. I had the fish and chips special. A nice portion of flounder along with fries and slaw... More

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
