“The Lasagna with Lobster Sauce is a must try”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Stated with an app of calarmari. Great! Sauce had a kick to it..
Then the main course of Lasagna in Lobster Sauce-Fantastic and enough for two people!
And Friday night was a bottle of wine at $10
My wife enjoyed the fish special.
If you are in Venice,Fl it is a must try!
Met the owner Dean Donnelly- He has a winner here.

“Love, Love, Love It!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I have visited Cedar Reef twice in two weeks, both times with my family and we love it! The staff is excellent, great menu and beer selection. Not to mention the last time we visited they donated 10% of their proceeds for that week to the Loveland Center. All the ingredient of a fine local establishment!!

“Excellent Everything”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

I had given up on finding a casual restaurant in Venice with food that could compete up north. I am happy to say that I finally found a place that is professional, and fun with a great price, value and perfectly prepared food. From the minute that you are greeted at the door your experience here is a pleasant one. Though we were not drinking today, the fact that they had Dogfishead and Abita beers available guarantees that we will be returning for supper soon this week.
I anticipate with joy trying all of the items on their menu solely based on my experience with their blackened redfish and blackbeans over rice, a generous portion for only $10 on Saturday.

“Fantastic food, personable owner, vegetarian options!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The fish here was outstanding, everyone was very pleased with their food. And, an option we liked was that they list all their fish and then all the ways it can be served, so you can put the meal together that you like. As for vegetarians, not a lot was specifically listed on the menu, but the owner used to be vegetarian, so he is extremely accomodating. Said to put together as many of the side dishes as one likes and then they put it together and priced it like a meal (cheaper than pricing it all as side dishes). They seemed to really care that you have a pleasant dining experience. Very kid friendly too! Crayons on the table and the wait staff all comes by to say hello to the little ones. Great dining experience!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Setting is kind of boring strip mall but food is excellent! Fresh fish and lots of choices of sauces to accompany. Cooked just right. Can't say enough about the attentive service. We went in off season so there wasn't a wait but the place was full, definately a sign of a good place. Highly recommend.
