“Great food, service and view on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I have been trying the different restaurants on the boardwalk in Hollywood during our many visits. This trip was our first time dining at Sugar Reef. Sugar Reef is not your typical beach food restaurant. Its a hidden gem. The price is a bit more than some of the others but the quality of the food and the tasting experience is not like any of the others. Each course, appetizer, salad and main course were full of flavor and an enjoyable dinning experience. Add the beach view, charm of the restaurant decor along with quality service, and you have a special meal.

“Amazing Breakfast with Beach Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Restaurant serves amazing food and ample beach views with a smile.
It is right on broadwalk which is lively and beautiful. This was all i was looking forward to - Great breakfast overlooking the ocean with Fresh OJ. We were promptly seated as soon as we arrived. Food came very soon, our waiters were attentive.
We ordered Bread & eggs, pancakes which were fluffy and Chakchouka. Everything was tasty and portions were great and aptly priced.

“This Restaurant is on Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, not Ft. Lauderdale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Our visit to this unique restaurant was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed everything about it. Our waiter has been here eight years and knew every wine on the list. He recommended a white french wine which was in the mid $30's that drank like an $80 bottle. It's a French-Caribbean flavor so it is unlike any other menu you'll find in the area. Everything is fresh, and made with an eye on calories, flavor, and presentation. This is not your typical greasy beach bar and grill fare. I had a hand rubbed jerk steak with mango salsa and my wife had a petite filet with a light sweet handmade cream sauce. Both dishes were excellent. Our appetizer was a raw scallop dish which was mixed with a salsa that was kind of like a Pico de Gallo only better. Fresh, made to order, and superb in taste. There were about five more things on the menu that looked good so it was a tough decision. I guess we'll just have to go back again.

“Limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had a late lunch and I ordered fried fish which was slightly burned. The serving size was good and the service was okay. The price was average. We had outside seating which overlooked the beach and the ocean.
