We used to have a condo in Ft. Myers Beach, FLA - right across the street & a little down the way was "The Reef Restaurant". There was only one thing we ever got there & was the Grouper Captiva.

Unfortunately, once Hurricane Charley hit on 8/13/04, The Reef Restaurant was destroyed. :(

Thankfully, since we were there all the time & knew the chef - we got the recipe! YEA!!!! :)

Making this sure brings back good memories of that restaurant!
