Description: 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!

Large menu to choose from-atmosphere was ok but rather warm in the dining area not like the foyer, where it was cool. Great service. I ordered Fish Taco's highly recommended by waitress -very salty and fishy they came blackened-waitress took them back and replaced entire dinner with an order that was cooked without any spices without any hassle at all. They also offer small and large servings. My friend had salmon very small piece for the small serving and she said it was dry. Vegetables appeared as if they came out of a bag. I was not impressed by the quality of the food and the prices seemed high for what was offered.

So I went for a family birthday celebration.....except it really didn't 'feel' like a celebration, or even recognition. I wonder sometimes if it's the wait staff or the restaurant who offers a little 'sumsing' at the end of the meal. Our meal was delicious enough, although a bit on the pricey side. Fish and Salad were very fresh! Tasty hush puppies too. Very subdued beach-themed ambience....and older clientele. The restaurant was not by any means busy so our meal was served in a timely manner, - but it would have been nice to have a slice of cake and a song on the house since it was obviously (stated) a birthday :<

The red beans and rice are absolutely out of this world. The service was very good as well. I have never experienced a bad visit to Robbie's Reef. Must try!

My wife had a garlic shrimp pasta which was great. Great taste and good portion size. My food was a 30 dollar fish plate that was supposed to be a awesome great tasting fish, not so. Tasted like a cheap imitation. Worth maybe 16 in my opinion. Spinach and artichoke dip had a funny aftertaste to it that I couldn't quite describe. I would not recommend it easier. The chips taste like they opened up a bag of Tostitos and I could have got that for a quarter of the price with spinach and artichoke dip from the grocery store.
