Lots of fun food to try. BOGO fajitas, pot stickers, gater tail. Outdoor jenga kept the kids busy while waiting for our food.

Came here for a late night dinner. Worst onion rings ever, skinny chicken wings with no meat on them and smoking patrons made the experience even worse. Life is to short to ever eat there again.

When you vacation with kids it is sometimes hard to find a place that keeps everyone happy. My daughter LOVES Rick's Reef because the mac-n-cheese is so good. I know, what?

We have driven by this place countless times but never stopped. The menu is not huge, but our party of seven had no problem finding something they liked. We ordered grouper, meatloaf, and fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server was friendly and efficient. The hand cut fries made for a good side.

We tried this place for lunch with friends and it was very good. Moderately priced, very casual atmosphere with indoor/outdoor seating, I recommend the mahi tacos and onion rings or mash potatoes. (Recently purchased by our favorite place, The Toasted Monkey, located down the road.)

Rick's Reef has been there for years and this was our third visit in as many years. The food is always good -- it's not fine dinning but a good place to bring the family for a good meal that will not break the bank.

Friendly service and great food. I had grilled grouper on a Caesar salad. Both were freshly prepared and delicious. The bar has a small but reasonable selection of drafts to choose from. My only beef is that it's hard to find a place to sit that's free from cigarette smoke.

Enjoyed eating dinner there at a reasonable price with great service. Hidden gem! We were able to watch the hockey game, eat and enjoy a full bar with attentive servers.
