Amazing food, great view even though the wind was blowing too hard for us to eat outside the table by the window was great. Food is pricey but was worth it. Had the filet with fried shrimp wife had the grouper both was amazing

This was the 2nd time we had ate lunch at the Reef in a the last couple of years. Obviously the 1st time was a pleasant experience but when you spend $18 bucks for lunch I would think you would get more than just 2 scallops with your meal. They were the size of a silver dollar but I was... More

enjoyed a brunch for mom's 87th birthday. The view/ setting is perfect. THe brunch is good but wouldn't say excellent although there are tons of choices and the flavors are excellent. The crab legs are served hot and cold. It is a popular place so arrive early and reservations are strongly suggested. we had them for 11 people but only... More

What a pleasure to be seated at a table with a stellar view of the ocean and enjoy an unhurried lunch. It may take a bit of a ride out of the city to get to this restaurant but it is worth the trip. Whether the luncheon ordered was French Dipped Roast Beef, a Mediterranean Salad, or a Mahi Mahi... More

We had dinner Oceanside in early April 2017 with our daughter and 3 grandchildren. We dined on the porch overlooking the Atlantic ocean (mainly out of courtesy to the other customers)! It was lovely and the food was good!

Food (I had scallops my husband had grouper) was delicious, it's right on the beach with ample parking. Not a sunset view for dinner. Would be very nice for lunch as well.

My husband and I were in town for a few days and always like to try the local restaurants. The Reef had pretty good reviews with a lot of comments on the slow service. We were there during our spring break, not a super busy time, but busy. We walked in and were seated right away. It was terribly windy,... More

A small group of us ate here at the recommendation from the hotel where we were staying. Called and put our name in on the drive over and were seated right away at a nice table right alongside the windows overlooking the water. Service was very good. One of our party had gluten and egg allergies and they were helpful... More
