Fire restorations

The Reef had an electrical fire early Tuesday morning and suffered damges to the bar area. Luckily, due to the efforts of the St. John's and St. Augustine Fire Departments, the fire was kept under control and extinguished quickly.
We opened our doors back up on Friday evening and are open for lunch and dinner at our usual hours. The Reef thanks everyone who has offered their help throughout the week and appreciates the patience of our customers during renovations.
Happy hour is still happening at the Reef as is our award winning brunch. Come in and see us! We can't wait to serve you!
