Frequent visitor.... never had anything but excellent food and service. The fish is the freshest in the area and preparation exquisite. The homemade desserts are wonderful, fresh made ice cream daily.

Our yearly sojourn to Jupiter FL is never complete without a visit to the Reef Grill. The freshest fish in a land of seafood restaurants. Our recent visit did not disappoint. As always, the daily catch fish are prepared extremely well. The wait staff is fast but very knowledgable. Our menu choices this trip were Grilled Swordfish and Blackened Hog... More

Forget about dinner at the Reef where it's always jammed with snowbirds, resulting in long waits and accompanying frustrations. Go to Captain Charlies, their satellite place a few doors down, for lunch (until 3pm). A real funky hole-in-the-wall storefront with a long counter plus about 10-12 small oilcloth-covered tables. Also always full, mostly with locals and FPL employees, but nothing... More

Come for the food, casual servers and waiting for your table at the bar three doors down. The 45 minute wait seemed to go by much quicker when you are sitting at a bar and the staff come inside to call your name. The wait for table of 5 was less than 45 minutes. Love that! Busy waitress greets you... More

We were looking forward to eating here based on friends' recommendations. We expected to have to wait and knew about the bar a few doors down where we could drink while waiting. When we arrived at 5:30 the hostess at the front said we could be seated right away if we would sit at the bar...an option we did not... More

This place is always packed and there is always a wait. This was our 3rd visit and we waited 45 minutes to be seated. The nice thing about the wait is there is a bar 2 doors down so you can drink, sit in the A/C and wait, when it's you turn to sit the hostess comes to the bar... More

Dined in late February 2017 with a party of 10 for business. They kindly took a reservation for our large party, which I know they don't normally do for smaller groups. Location in an older strip mall is easy to miss, but is worth the effort to find. A line out the front door on a Monday night is a... More

I don't know where to start. What a menu! We tried to try everything so we came back for 3 nights. LOL It was that good. Try the Grouper cheeks. I had no idea the Grouper had cheeks but they are WONDERFUL. Tender, tasty, and sweet. Had the Shrimp Pot and the Scampi, both wonderful. Hubby had the Panko encrusted... More

When you first sit down you are warmly greeted and presented with bowls of homemade Cole slaw to eat while you wait for your order. The specials, including at lunch, are a full, handwritten page every day, depending on the daily catch. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The "little taco" and the daily slider are available mix... More

This restaurant is soooooo good. Everything is prepared as it is ordered as I can attest to since I had a seat at the bar which faces the kitchen. The cooking show was almost as good as the meal. The wait may be long but well worth it. Don't be mislead by the store front. Not much to look at... More
