Description: Robbi's Reef is a floridian-style restaurant that focuses on fresh, quality seafood and smoked in-house barbecue - a winning combination for the whole family to enjoy! Robbi's Reef is located in a beautiful, 175 seat restaurant overlooking a small body of water & beautiful fountain with large windows to maximize the view. With plenty of private parking, a full indoor & outdoor bar, a fresh seafood market, lots of large fish tanks to entertain, and plenty of photos of locals with their "big catch" to peruse, kids and adults will enjoy the casual, relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful food!

Robbie has a way of drawing a crowd. She also knows how to create recipes that nearly addictive. Her gumbo and fish tacos are the absolute best that can be found anywhere and Venice residents and visitor are cheating themselves if they don't try them.

My husband & I ate at Robbi's Reef in Venice for the first time, and, the whole experience was wonderful!!! Everyone was super friendly & welcoming...right down to the bus boys! Robbi (the owner) waited on us and she was very friendly and had a good sense of humor! She got our food to us quickly & managed to keep an eye on the whole place to make sure things were running smoothly...even though they were quite busy!! There were a lot of repeat customers there that we talked to, that keep coming back for their scrumptious food! My husband got the "Bayou Willie" An assortment of seafood in a cream sauce mixed in with Penne pasta and just the right seasonings!! To die for!! He loved it and my fork kept finding it's way over to his plate too!! hee hee I got the "Pacific Coast Salad with grilled shrimp! Very nice & light... mixed greens, Mandrin oranges, chow mein noodles and grilled shrimp with an Asian dressing! Just right! We will be going back soon, so we can try EVERYTHING on the menu!! ha ha :) They have won several awards at this restaurant and I can definitley see why!!

We have been to Robbi's Reef likely 50 times or more and have never experienced a bad meal. Fish tacos are excellent! Atmosphere is not that great, but food makes up for it!!
