Small and unassuming with amazing food and a good wine and beer menu. It's a small place with great service, a little cramped but the food is amazing with wonderful daily specials.

Was looking for something different in the Venice area that served oysters. Stumbled upon Cedar Reef and had a pleasant experience. Atmosphere is casual and comfortable, very clean. Their menu is extensive and available online at cedarreef.com. They had plenty of specials, something for everyone.

Family friendly, tables inside are covered with paper to draw on the tables, equipped with crayons and trivia/pictionary cards to add entertainment to your stay. Service was quick and friendly. Spent a few hours there in the afternoon with family just visiting. Got busier in the later afternoon and seems to have a lot of regulars. Great beer selection and overall nice time. Tilapia was some of the best mother said she's ever had.

We were coming up from Edgewood into Venice and noticed this little restaurant in a strip mall. We had no idea if it was any good but we were very hungry and the specials at the door sounded good and reasonable. Oh.my.goodness! We are so pleased that we found it! I had the choice of shrimp and had the pina colada. The shrimp were cooked just right - plump and so full of flavour. My husband had the lobster lasagne -- it was delicious, full of scallops and lobster. We will definitely be back again and again. The service was excellent. They were quite busy as our meal went on but all the food that we saw come out looked just as good and appetizing. Highly recommend.

The worst part was that it was extremely hot in the restaurant, it made enjoying our dinner very unpleasant.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the service was EXCELLENT.

In our opinion the shrimp and grits.... grilled shrimp was great but the grits very very thick and could have very well passed for instant grits out of a box. The lobster and scallop Lasagna..... was their special that night, it was very tasty, though I could find lots of big pieces of meat it appeared to be fake crab, and definitely not lobster, a few little scallops, but I guess what can you expect for $10
