Excellent food. Try the Swordfish or Shrimp. Killer wine list at reasonable prices. Good stuff available by the glass. The congenial host has created a laid back "Old Florida" atmosphere. Friendly, fun place. Don't let the exterior put you off. Recent Wine Spectator two page spread as Number One in S Florida has made it even more popular.

In town from Ohio. Asked the front desk of our hotel for a great seafood-elbows on the table restaurant for dinner. We were pleased with the Reef Grill. Our server recommended maybe trying several appetizers as a meal to share when we asked her favorite things were. The Caesar salad with Panko-crusted hog snapper was great! The calamari was very good, as was the tortizza. The fish tacos were pretty good, too. I did not care for the key lime pie, it seemed very gritty. But, the mango creme brûlée was fabulous!

Seems like almost everyone through the door knew the guy behind the counter Lots of loyal customers. The food was intelligently prepared--we brought fish we'd caught that day--and we had it sautéed in clam juice/wine & clarified butter, served with an outstanding fruit salsa (apples, mango and pear? with some cider vinegar, brown sugar and cayenne--perfectly balanced). Dessert was a killer peanut butter/ chocolate ice cream. Wine list was respectable, if basic, and well priced. Best dinner we've had all week.

5 stars all around, atmosphere, food amazing, owners are the greatest, no better place around, and the wine a cellar beyond compare. If you're there do stop in you'll not be disappointed!

Capt. Charlie will never serve a piece of fish after it's time. Always fresh, prepared as you like it, we can depend on the quality so take friends and visitors. There's a great wine list too. The appetizer list with unusual specials and old standbys is truly worth considering. One can share, or make a meal of one or two. The atmosphere is friendly and casual, the service prompt most nights except perhaps busy weekend evenings. There's often a wait on those nights. Occasionally a special dish or two doesn't quite work, but I forgive them, as most are terrific, as are the standards on the regular menu. Rely on the fish being mostly local and super fresh. My personal favorites are saute'd triple tail or hog snapper. They're served with tropical rice and beans and the fresh vegetable medley of the day. One can get double veggie or potatoes instead of rice if desired. Some of the other dishes on the huge menu may have other sides.

When we drove up to the restaurant, we expected a typical, fried fish platter place. We were so pleasantly surprised. We sampled 4 different apps based on our server's suggestions. Our taste buds were delighted by the variety of flavors in each one. The Reef Grill is on our list for every trip to this area of FL.
