We visited Rick’s Reef with the family while on vacation in St Petes. The food and drink was great value and tasty. The bar had a friendly atmosphere, which the kids (8 and 9) found engaging and fun, which is not always the case!

Will the server takes good care of us every time! We've been eating here on weekends for years and highly recommend it to friends. I've never ordered anything that I didn't enjoy. The food is freshly prepared and is worth the extra time it takes.
