I found this my first day in St. Aug and was really taken with it. Wonderful menu so hard making a decision. Ended up ordering the black and blue salad--blackened prime rib with lots of blue cheese. I liked it so much I made a return visit a priority. This time shrimp salad with dill--at least a half pound of shrimp and no filler. Great service and reasonably priced given the large servings. And of course there is the view.

Had been assured that we would have a window table with only a 3-top (made reservations far in advance) but the first table was unacceptable. We asked for a different place and proceeded to have great service and delicious food. The prime rib, crab legs, and shrimp were outstanding as were the usual turkey, cranberry/orange sauce and stuffing. We had attentive and friendly service and the champagne kept coming. A very lovely holiday buffet with a wide variety of great food for a fair price. A nice change from cooking and right on the ocean!

Made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner at 1 pm while we were visiting St. Augustine. They took us to a table upstairs, where the view of the Atlantic Ocean was beautiful, yes, but they seated us at a table as far from the window as possible. Why? The window tables stayed VACANT during our entire meal. Were they waiting for more beautiful families? Who knows? The turkey was dry, the gravy was orange, the mashed potatoes were from a mix. Thank goodness for the crab legs and shrimp. We paid $39 per person and we ended up having a second Thanksgiving dinner that night at Gypsy Cab in St. Augustine, for $15 for a homemade turkey dinner, which was delicious. Sorry, Reef, but it wasn't worth it.

Staying at Vilano Beach in St Augustine and wanted a nearby restaurant. Noted that the Reef was nearby and went to Tripadvisor to confirm the Reef was a great place to eat. It was an unseasonably warm evening so we ate outside and the ocean and food was superb. Many of the table are oceanside, so one could not ask for a better view. Even on a slow Tuesday night, the full menu was available...and very good!

We finally returned after several really bad experiences a number of years of ago. You cannot beat the view of the ocean and it was actually pretty good! The server (Spencer) did a great job and the food was much better than in the past. We will definitely give it another try.
