We ate here three nights in a row. The food was really good and inexpensive. Nightly specials are particularly good. The fish in fish and chips was lightly breaded and fried perfectly.

Wonderful seafood, $4.00 margaritas that were flavorful and strong and friendly service. The place is small and the decor is not special but the crab cakes, coconut shrimp, and Greek salad we're delighted and parking was easy.

We have been to Rick's Reef 3 times now. Once for lunch and twice for the new breakfast recently offered. We have been very satisfied all 3 times. The food is very good and the staff friendly and efficient. This one goes on our list for sure. It is also very clean. We are very picky about where we eat.

When we went they were busy and only one person trying to wait on people, food was ok. Price seemed a little high compared to the service and drink that is featured on menu for tripadvisor was not on the menu there nor did the bartender know of it.

We have eaten dinner at Rick's several times and liked it. They are now serving breakfast and the food, atmosphere and service were great. Our server, Brendan, was excellent. Will be returning to Rick's many times during our vacation. 👍👍👍

Had the liver and onions, which was a good value and tasty. Wife had coconut shrimp, which she said was fairly good. Small place, but plenty of TVs on, but mostly Fox News? I guess I forget where I am, retirement area, and they watch Faux News. A little presumptive, and one-sided, why not something more neutral? CNN and ESPN?... More
