The Reef Restaurant Review

: Owned by Specialty Restaurants, which counts a brisk banquet trade and venues with great views among its trademarks, The Reef is always busy at its location on Long Beach Harbor. The kitchen specializes in steakhouse classics and fresh seafood, beginning with a list of eclectic appetizers like cornmeal-crusted calamari or Vietnamese shrimp spring rolls. For larger plates, choose from one of the chef's daily creations or items such as filet mignon topped with king crab, asparagus and béarnaise sauce, prime rib or blackened swordfish with pineapple chutney. The lunchtime crowd can drop by during the week and dig into sandwiches, burgers and lighter fare like coconut shrimp. The Reef staff does a good job with events, from corporate functions to wedding receptions.
