First time the so happy with our meal. Next time not so much. Got the shrimp & grits...DON'T. Very salty, shrimp were seasoned almost as an afterthought. Nice atmosphere, stick to the simple stuff I guess.

Atmosphere is ok. Food is good especially blackened shrimp & grits, grouper, even steak salad. Fish & chips weren't too good at all. Waitress didn't offer to replace with something else which was odd. Great fish place worth the visit.

As seasonal travelers, this was our first visit to Robbi's new location. What a change! The new place seats three or four times as many people and sits on a pretty little lake where we watched storks on the other side bathe, flap, and sun themselves. A flock of ibis was under a nearby tree. Gone from Robbi's was all... More

This was our first trip to Robbi's Reef but will definitely not be our last. The food was excellent as was the service. So glad this was recommended to us by a local resident.

We had eaten a couple of times in their previous location and were always impressed with the seafood. Somehow we just never stopped at the "new" location, where I think the Key West Grille was located. All we can say is WOW. Great decor, comfortable noise level, and of course outstanding seafood. Having lived a good portion of my adult... More

Happy Hour Catfish bites are only $4 for a huge plate of delicately fried fish. Great Happy Hour discount on house wines.

We located a pet friendly hotel in Venice after a mandatory evacuation from our East Coast home during Hurricane Mathew. We happened upon this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised: nautical ambiance, wonderful service, and reasonable prices. We each ordered their shrimp dinner with different sides. Wow, my fried shrimp: 12 large, succulent crispy shrimp, perfection! The sides were enormous, garlic... More
