We, and three other couples decided to give this place a try, after a round of golf; very good decision.The staff is welcoming, warm and friendly, and went out of their way to accommodate a party of eight. Our server Chad, was a treasure, attentive, funny as can be, and extremely helpful in our menu selections. We started out with... More

There were 4 adults & 2 teenagers that had dinner at Robbi's Reef on 2/19/17. We have eaten here before and were more than satisfied with our food. However, this visit was less than satisfactory. We put our name on the wait list and we were told about a 30 minute wait. Two parties of 6 came in after us... More

Visited on Friday around 12:30 pm for lunch with 6 people. No wait for a table. Quick service and variety of foods. They seated a group of 16 next to us and it quickly got loud. Not much you can do about that. Would go again. Enjoyed the grouper, snapper and catfish.

We had a late lunch / early dinner during Happy Hour at Robbi's last week. Venice first-timers and recent retirees, we are enjoying trying new places here in FLA. Robbi's is a short drive from our condo, has great service, and good food. Tried the catfish bites as an appetizer and loved them. Menus is stocked with solid options. Going... More

Our last two visits were so disappointing as our favorite fish & chips and hush puppies were over fried and greasy. We decided since it was my Father's favorite restaurant before they moved during his last visit to Venice, we tried it again. Unfortunately, it was worse than before and my Dad is returning home stating it was terrible. He... More

We had LOBSTER BISQUE, SMALL CAESAR SALAD, BAYOU WILLY’S SEAFOOD PASTA, SOUTHERN STYLE FISH & CHIPS, Blackened Chicken Tacos, Mahi MONTEREY SALAD, and Shrimp Scampi. Everyone concurred that their food was good except that the mahi was overcooked. The server was excellent. Restroom was reasonably clean but could use redecorating.

We stopped here based on a local person's recommendation. The food was very good. My husband had the grouper which he said was really good. I had the sea food pasta which was excellent. Definitely would go back!

This was our first visit to the expanded location. The restaurant has very attractive decor, with ample and comfortable seating. A vast improvement from the old location. The food quality maintained the high standard. I ordered the blackened Mahi Mahi fish tacos, served with black beans and rice. The blackening was perfect with the right amount of spice to enjoy...

Seafood pasta was excellent. Would have given this restaurant an excellent rating, however, my husband's fish and chips were just average. We were seated very quickly and our server Kelly was very helpful and efficient.
