This is one of my Grandpa's go to places that he wanted to take us to while we were in town. Service was fast and friendly and our seafood was fresh. We all really loved the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer.

Robbi's has moved since our last visit 18 months ago, and it is now much bigger and more elegant. The quality of the food is excellent, to my knowledge, much superior to any seafood restaurants in this area, which are generally very mediocre. The seafood...More

Robbi's Reef is a floridian-style restaurant that focuses on fresh, quality seafood and smoked in-house barbecue - a winning combination for the whole family to enjoy! Robbi's Reef is located in a beautiful, 175 seat restaurant overlooking a small body of water & beautiful fountain with large windows to maximize the view. With plenty of private parking, a full indoor & outdoor bar, a fresh seafood market, lots of large fish tanks to entertain, and plenty of photos of locals with their "big catch" to peruse, kids and adults will enjoy the casual, relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful food!
