Great location overlooking the beautiful beach with indoor and outdoor seating. Discounted full array of appetizers and drinks from 3-7 six days a week, starts a bit later on Sunday. Our favorite apps are: home cured gravlax, sliced tuna, fried green tomatoes, fish chowder, baked oysters and many more. Bar staff are knowledgable, friendly and efficient. A fun place for... More

Great ocean view and wonderful food. Jeremy and his entire staff do a great job. Sunday brunch is a must. We don't recommend many restaurants but The Reef is consistently on point.

One of our favorite places for lunch or dinner when in St Augustine. Wonderful food, exceptional service and an ocean view from every table... It just doesn't get any better than that.

We started in St Augustine and followed the ocean north. We asked the locals for recommendations and this was our first stop. The happy hour was great. They accommodated our group of ten. The appetizers were fantastic. Of course we asked for the next stop and got a great recommendation. We’ll be back to the Reef.

Though the outdoor tables overlooking the water offer an incredible view, the food was only so-so. Sadly, ambiance alone does not make a restaurant worth a visit. Outdoor tables on the water are dog-friendly.

We had a very nice lunch at The Reef. I noticed their Datil Pepper Shrimp on the starter menu and asked if I could have it as a luncheon main course. The server was very helpful and accommodating. This dish was excellent. Datil Pepper is a St Augustine speciality and we saw it several places. My wife had their Fish... More

My fiancé and I stopped in here for lunch, while searching for a wedding venue. We sat on the outdoor deck. Beautiful views, great service. While the cost was a little on the higher side, it was well worth it. Would recommend this to anyone in the area.

One of the best brunch restaurants in St. Augustine. I have been there many many times. Outstanding food and service. Had brunch on August 14. Wonderful good except for the Minorcan Clam Chowder. It's supposed to be a little spicy but I think the chef must have double or triple dosed this dish. I like someway spicy food but this... More

WOW, the most perfect evening, my wife of 39 years, gorgeous view, excellent service and a meal we will always remember. We started off with Calamari that was cooked to perfection. Wife had Citrus Salmon, fried spinach while I had Fresh herb crusted Tuna and Saffron Mussels. Evening ended with awesome coffee and Black Forest Pie, with a special message... More
