Cocoa Reef Tiki Bar and Grill

|
I was at Sawgrass this weekend, and since it's sweltering already, in the mood for seafood. I had planned on eating at
Legal seafood for lunch--I had even started my post in it--but sometime over the last 2 months, legal seafood shut down. So, we ate at the next closest place--Cocoa Beach Tiki Bar and Grill.

Here was my opener for Legal Seafood:

It's definitely better than illegal seafood. Every time I See that name, I think of large fishermen in dirty tan trenchcosts hoiking punk-rock barroom brawler fish with missing eye patches, gnarled fins and peg legs out the back onto a steamer. It makes me giggle inside.
Closed!


What we had:

I had the Argentinean steak sandwich--flat steak, cooked to a perfect rare with good seasoning on a crusty baguette with tomato and lettuce. I was quite impressed. It's hard to get rare steak on a sandwich, and this was well-trimmed and delightful. I had thought a little chimmichurri would be nice, but the steak was plenty juicy on it's own.

The fries were under-cooked and greasy.

My DH had the chicken quesadilla, which he said was bland, typical bar food. He had hoped for Applebees level, but this didn't make that cut.


D├ęcor:

Outdoor bar-style.


Service:

Not bad. A lot of 'sweetie's.'


Overall impressions:

I'd go back, and next time, I'm bringing my I.D. This place has 13 varieties of frozen cocktails, and 1 with no rum or tequilla. Fair prices,too--$10 for sandwiches, $6.50 for frozen drinks and $7.50 & $8.00 cocktails.
