This restaurant is connected to the Roadway Inn and is a very convenient, especially if you're not driving which was my case, pre-cruise stay at the Roadway. Food was good, wait staff was attentive and friendly. The venue is also a lounge so they serve drinks. The restaurant/lounge has a number of flat screens with various sporting events showing.

Cruise port rip off artists! Orders took 45 minutes or more for delivery. Requested utensils, wait. Drinks, wait. Bills, wait. Ordered Fish and Chips Friday night...brought it and when asked for tarter sauce. Oh we are out, how about cocktail sauce. Prime rib, horseradish? Also out! Well maybe you should tell us that when we ordered! Never saw the waitress more than once, spent her time out in the parking lot chatting. Table of five and mandatory fee added. Asked it to be removed and told no couldn't be done. It's a courtesy charge not a TIP! What's up with that! Stay away.

We had dinner one night at the Reef, prior to our cruise. I had a great salad and my husband had the fish and chips...both very good! Service was slow, but the staff were friendly.

Good happy hour and had a good prime rib there. Not enough bartenders on for the happy hour as the one they had did have was way overworked, but managed to keep up, barely.

My wife and I returned from a cruise and got a day room at the attached hotel. We were tired and hungry and not really expecting much. We were very pleasantly surprised!!! The restaurant is very roomy with a variety of sports available on the big screens. The waitress was EXCEPTIONAL. I never had to ask for anything. She was pleasant and super-attentive.

My wife ordered fajitas and I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. They were both amazing. The fajita filling was tasty and fresh. The pulled pork was wonderful (just the right amount of sauce so that you could still taste the meat). The entire time my wife and I were eating we were commenting on how good it tasted.

With such good food, good service, and at reasonable prices; I'm sure that we will be back in the future...
