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!

Restaurant is located in a strip mall. Don't let that put you off.
Personable, informed, attentive waiter. Family friendly atmosphere. Very good seafood at reasonable prices.

We love Robbi's. She is a lovely hostess. Her staff are long timers and are trained to answer any questions and to please the customers. If you don't like the way the fish is described on the menu, you can ask for it to be broiled, baked, blackened, or whatever. The Chef rocks! It is cute inside and feel like you are a fish in an aquarium looking at other fish! Truly a fun experience. As locals, we can eat anywhere and Robbi's is on our go-to list. The french fries are the best ever. If you are looking for a stuffy, place to eat seafood, this isn't it. If you want to have fun, a great meal, be comfy, good service, and feel like you are home, this is it! You will definitely come back again and again!

Looks a little sketchy from the outside, but don't let that fool you. Food was AWESOME. Every single person at our table was very pleased with their dish, even the kids. So much so that we decided to come back the next night so that everyone could try something different! I suppose you can only do that on vacation! Service was great, very attentive, kids loved the fish tanks and the pictures on the walls. We had a big party but only had to wait a little while, which is to be expected.

I've tried just about everything on their menu. They provide a great meal, well portioned, at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is clean.
