“Unexpected Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Venue with Chill Vibes”
“Rick’s Reef did a great job of hosting our July Wedding Rehearsal Dinner before our big day up the road at Post Card Inn. Our group had roughly 50 folks ranging in age from newborn to 80-somethings and there were options for everyone. We came on a busy late afternoon in July on a holiday weekend and it was blazing hot with the sun beating down the entire time, but Tyler and his crew worked hard to accommodate everyone and make us all feel comfortable. Their food was fantastic, and he even created a custom short menu just for our party and printed them, too! We had the entire outdoor seating area and dedicated servers and waitresses who made sure everyone was well taken care of. Their smaller scratch kitchen did wonders by cooking our huge group’s meals and those for the patrons in the interior section, too, which filled up quickly. Neighboring dining options for a rehearsal dinner didn’t fit us – they were stuffy, uptight or dark indoors, not to mention, they required meal minimums at $20pp each and considerably higher. Too much “corporatey” types and red tape. No thank you! Tyler and his awesome staff provided a laid back, fun atmosphere for us thirty-something love birds who wanted some good food, awesome drinks, fun with corn hole and ring toss, and an overall good vibe and time that wouldn’t overshadow our beach wedding the next day. Tyler communicated well the entire time by phone/email and we had a very reasonable agreement and deposit amount. We were worried about rain and did not have one drop, but there are roll down walls if that would have been the case. Also, most of our large group just decided to take the short walk from Post Card Inn so that parking at both places didn’t become an issue since it is limited at each. Note: diners can smoke at the bar which follows the L shaped outdoor area – ask for interior seating if this might bother you. We didn’t take this into consideration and there was no wind, so clouds of cigarette smoke from one chain-smoker lingered around our tables (and grandparents and infant children – yuck!) But of all of the other times I had been there, this was not an issue and is not the fault of the restaurant. Thank you so much for being a part of our big day and our wedding celebration. We also eat here often when in St. Pete – stop by any time for any type of meal or just drinks – it’s a great local spot.”
