“Very impressed with food and service.”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Can not say enough good things about this restaurant. The staff is very personable and takes the time to get to know you. The food is amazing. Nothing is ever frozen and you can tell. The quality is tops! We are here twice during our stay and will definately be back. The atmosphere is wonderful. Don't miss this!

“My new favorite restaurant on St. Pete Beach.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband and I first discovered Rick's Reef in June, so when we came back in town, this was our first choice of places to eat. I have had several items from their menu, and I have loved it all. One of my favorites is the macaroni and cheese , but the pork sliders are incredible too. Their cheeseburger is the best I've ever had. The drinks are very good too. The bartender who worked on Labor Day is one of the best around; nobody makes a better margarita. The staff goes out of its way to provide good service and make your time there enjoyable. We love Rick's Reef so much that out of the five nights we went out to eat, three nights were at Rick's Reef. The live music this weekend was also superb. I have vacationed in St. Pete for most of my life, and this restaurant is one of the best!

“Great service and food!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Stopped by with family and friends for an early lunch and could smell the BBQ pork - was leaning that way until I heard the special (lobster roll). Couldn't resist the lobster roll, and was glad I got it, but was still smelling that BBQ in the air. Rick brought our party a heaping side of pork for us to try - on the house. Was awesome! Such a cool place, will definitely be back. I'm a St. Pete Beach local, and it was very refreshing to find a place on the beach with good food, good service, and won't break your bank account!
