Wife and I sopped by at 1:15 for late lunch. Good thing we did as they do a super business. But we had no wait and our server was fantastic. They had five specials and I had the lightly breaded fish and chips and wife had soup of the day and fresh fish. Remarkable presentation, flavor and served hot. The... More

We braved a crazy thunderstorm to come to Cedar Reef the other night. The place wasn't crowded (due to the storm) so we were seated quickly and had plenty of time to wander through the extensive menu. As usual the service was efficient and friendly. I had the Crab Platter with Snow Crab legs and crab cake with basil dijon... More

The good--fresh shrimp in the shrimp cocktail and a very good hostess and server. The average--thin but tasty clam chowder. The less that good--the burned herb biscuits and shrimp scampi with negligible flavor. Granted the amount of pasta was generous, the number of shrimp fine, but we left most of the pasta as it was nearly tasteless. This Restaurant Week... More

If you are looking for Sea Food, high quality service and great prices: this is your place. It's casual fine dining, seafood and a little bit more of everything. So, we loved it. Very friendly and super duper ambiance. Julie was our server and definitely she is the top notch of this place. If you come to Venice, Florida and... More

Without a doubt the best seafood around!! We have eaten there many times and have never gotten a bad dish!! The dining room is small but don't be discouraged if you have to wait 10-15 minutes to get in. It is WELL worth it!!

The Cedar Reef Fish Camp in South Venice is one of our "go to" places for seafood. We have not been to the Bradenton location or to the new place in North Venice, but we plan to. The fish is always fresh and the fries are really good. Cedar Reef have a great selection of seafoods and preparations. Its is... More

We spent a week traveling the Gulf Coast of Florida and this was the worst sea food restaurant we tried out of 5 seafood restaurants ranging from Doc Ford's to Peace River Seafood to Salty's Island Bar and Grille. Its quality was average with above average prices. The service was average. The location was in a strip mall and its... More
