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!

The restaurant is nothing to look at on the outside, but is definitely worth exploring further. All the food was delivered to our group in a timely manner and was cooked to perfection. I had the shrimp platter. The shrimp was lightly battered and delicious! And the Key Lime pie was to die for! This is a family owned and operated business. They have huge "stuffed" fish displayed on the walls that they've caught and they invite customers to bring in pictures of their big catches.

By far the best seafood in town and best bang for your buck! Can't go wrong with the gumbo or the fish tacos! Literally the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. Their fish specials are amazing and they always have a new fish for me to try! Service is stellar!

All the ratings and reviews are correct we finally stopped in for lunch and as promised the fish tacos are the best around. I will try fish tacos in every restaurant that offers them and by far Robbi's Reef had the best. It's a nice casual place with good service at a fair price. Didn't try the gumbo which I was told was also excellent. Next time.

Robbi's Reef doesn't look like anything special on the outside, located in a strip mall like atmosphere but the food is marvelous. The employees are so courteous when you arrive, they begin to know who you are each time you visit, calling you by name, making you feel like you're family. They have a beautiful fish tank with beautiful fish swimming around. The walls are covered with everyday kind of people that have caught their prize fish. The food menu is great with just about anything you could want but impeccably cooked. The fish taco is just about the best I have ever had. Their specials are always interesting especially when the waiter describes them. The atmosphere is warm & inviting.

I repeatedly get recommendations for seafood and Fish & Chips but they almost never pan out for me in Florida, until Robbi's Reef. Growing up near Cape Cod we have dozens of great restaurants with the freshest seafood so I'm always leery of anything touted as great seafood. I can honestly say that Robbi's had some of the best Fish & Chips I ever had. A good size portion, good batter, and fish was great. I will definitely be back.
