Love their gumbo and fish tacos...oh my ...one word...delicious. Not in the mood for seafood? Then order one of the best hamburgers you will ever eat, New location but the same large selection of some of the best seafood in the area. You will not regret stopping in and you, like myself will become a frequent and loyal customer.

My wife and I with friends for dinner. Each of us ordered something different, and all were pleased with their selection. My wife could hardly finish her Haddock Sliders. Crispy fried fish and oh so tasty. I had the Sweet and Sour Black -tipped shark over yellow rice. It was one of the very best entrees I've had in a... More

This is a neat restaurant that is not meeting its potential. Be sure to review the menu before going there. We found the restaurant to have a great atmosphere but were very disappointed in their low end menu which we felt was inconsistent to its surroundings. We expected a more refined fine dining experience but that it wasn't. They've been... More

The ONLY discounted appetizer is the Catfish Bites, which are great, and of ample size. They are well-seasoned, delicately fried, wonderful. We also ordered the Calamari, which was also tasty. Well Bourbon was good and house white wine was very good. Prompt and cheerful service, ni9ce ambience.

The blackened Snapper was a suggestion from the waiter and he knew what to order! The fish was cooked perfect, and the garlic mashed potatoes and baked green beans were great. I would suggest making a stop and asking what to order from the waiters. They know what is good. Great atmosphere and this restaurant was one of the finest... More

We had planned to go to Dockside Grill but it was closed d/t water issues. We went to Robbi's Reef and was very pleased with the delicious food. I had blackened catfish and it was very good! The salads are excellent and service very accommodating! Will definitely go again!

This was our first visit and we LOVED the food! Some friends introduced us to this amazing seafood. Best grouper sandwich and fish tacos we've ever had. And the atmosphere is fun! Highly recommend stopping in. If we make it back to this area we will!!

Got takeout dinners here for a dinner for our extended family staying at Venice Beach. Pretty much anything on the menu can be ordered as take-out. Most importantly, the person taking our large,varied order got it all correct. The blackened catfish dinner was really well done- just enough spice. The peel and eat shrimp also had a little extra flavor.... More
