Robbi's Reef is located in a beautiful, 175 seat restaurant overlooking a small body of water 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 relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful food!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Comfortable atmosphere, good food. Burgers are good, the fried shrimp is wonderful. Gets crowded in season.

“Do NOT MIss the Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Best seafood in Venice. Robbie's husband is the kitchen wizard and maker of some of the best black beans and rice around. Very popular both on and off season so get there early.

“Great Fish Tacos!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a little out of the way place in a strip center but the food is great. They specialize in fish dishes. Their fish tacos are fantastic. They're made with Mahi Mahi and they're not small!

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

This. is a little hidden jewel of a restaurant. Sometimes has a lengthy wait(all Venice restaurants in season). The catfish is exceptional no matter how it is fixed. They always have a catch of the day menu that will satisfy almost anyone. The only downside is the draft beer choices and as with most other Venice restaurants if you like Bud or yueling you will be not be surprised with the draft choices.
