Nothing was wrong. It just wasn't as good as advertised; and for the price, it should have been better. The appetizers were ok, but we've had similar, better elsewhere. That was pretty much the case for all the food. Service was average as well.

My husband and I had Sunday Brunch here, and it was delicious. They have bottomless mimosas for starters, and the brunch buffet is amazing. They have everything from crab legs and prime rib to waffles and an omelette station. With waterfront views and delicious food, you can't go wrong!!!

We stopped in after a nature walk at the nearby State Park. We had our French bulldog with us and we were shown to a small porch overlooking the ocean. James was our server and gave us excellent service. We had the mahi sandwich and seafood chowder with some local beer on tap. Everything was very good. Highly recommend.

Went there with friends recently; the people over there are still struggling with the aftermath of hurricane Matthew. At the Reef they seem to have overcame the worst; their food was certainly not affected by the hurricane ! We had the fish soup.....mjam !!! Then I had the see food and pasta... even better. My wife had 3 different "little... More

Overlooks the Atlantic. 2.00$ off Appetizers from 5 -7. Mussels were amazing & was told the Chef actually won an award for them. My husband had the liver Pate & he said it was great. We shared the pepper shrimp,also very good. Service was excellent
