Food was amazing, staff was a little scattered. Food came out hot and fresh tasting but I don't recommend getting cocktails here. Stick to beer.

The food here was very good. We ordered the mahi sandwich and crab cake sandwich and they were impressive. Fries were good as well. Nice place to grab a quick meal.

Had dinner last night at Rick's Reef. Chose the restaurant from reading trip advisor reviews. Had the best meal we had all week! Four dollar margaritas were pint sized and very good! I'm picky about the flavor. The shrimp scampi was delicious and a very large serving. Had a house glass of Pinot Nior with dinner. Large pour and very... More

Just had a quick appetizer and a beer- but the coconut shrimp was good and the service quick and friendly. When I went by the other evening, the place was packed! Would go again

The server (Gray) was knowledgeable and provided good suggestions for our meal. The BBQ pork sliders, fries and coleslaw were excellent!

Amazing hand-breaded onion rings (just right not too much not too little), out of this world Gouda, cheddar Mac n' cheese, husband's quote "best ever Baja fish tacos." I'm KETO and they accommodated me with an outstanding shrimp alfredo (totally needed to up my fat). Ice cold beer and hubby says stiff doubles for Jack n coke. Our server Gray... More

The wife and I drove over an hour to celebrate my birthday with a nice dinner. We ate here once before and loved the grouper sandwich, lobster roll and lobster mac and cheese. We arrive to find out that they no longer offer the lobster roll and were out of grouper. Later the group next to us (apparent frequent visitors)... More

We apologize about your long drive to come see us to find out we were out of grouper at the moment. We pride ourselves on "fresh" seafood and we did sell out of grouper early that afternoon and our delivery truck was running late. This has only been my first experience selling out of grouper for a short moment since... More
