    Beautiful views for you and doggo

    Staff was super friendly towards my dog and brought her a bowl of ice water right away after getting seated.

    Great yappy hour!

    We ate at the Reef twice during our trip to Vilano Beach. Our dog was enthusiastically accommodated both times and water was brought right out to him. Highly recommend for dog lovers. Great food and a great view!

    Great food and view

    Very nice staff accommodating our family of 5 and 3 small dogs. Can eat out on the patio. Great view of the beach and nice ocean breeze. They brought out two water bowls and were very nice to our pups. The food was very tasty. We had a burger, mahi tacos, salmon, north beach mahi and mahi sandwich. All was super tasty. And a spot to get out to beach and a foot washing area. Definitely recommend.

    Phenomenal views!

    Patio is right on the beachfront giving you a great view of the ocean. Food was delicious and the service was extremely fast for coming in at noon on a Sunday. Even offered a water bowl for the pup. Parking is free but may be a bit of a challenge on the weekends with the beach goers. Highly recommend!!

    Beautiful view and great food

    First off the view from here is amazing. Secindly they were so friendly and the waitresses immediately asked to pet my dog as soon as we entered. They then brought Bruno a bowl as soon as we were seated. I was there when they first opened so my food came out quickly and I was seated almost immediately. I ordered an appetizer and before I could finish it my main dish came out. The smoked duck piquillo peppers and the flounder were both fantastic!! I wish I could give more than 5 bones.

    Gorgeous Beachfront!

    Great experience. Typically we have had to “settle” when we choose dog-friendly. This was an upscale dining experience, with excellent service, and food.
    Hot Florida summer day, but the ocean breeze (and bowl of water) kept our Border Collie and Long Hair Chihuahua cool and comfortable while we enjoyed our wine and perfectly cooked seafood.
    We will be back!!!

    Fantastic view of the ocean & Great food!

    The restaurant is located right on the beach, we walked on the beach to get there. The balcony where we ate had a superb view of the ocean and all our 3 dogs were welcomed. Our waiter even brought them a water bowl with ice!
