When I saw "The Reef" advertising, I wondered if Marina 84 had changed their name back to The Reef. Marina 84 has had a bunch of different names. But it appears that "The Reef" is now the name of the restaurant in the Red Carpet Inn, which is right next door to Marina 84. Not only are they using the same name, but they're using the same logo also.

They're running paid Yelp ads with links to the old description of what is now Marina84. It seems unlikely that the business owner isn't aware of this, so it appears to be intentional deception.

Pretty slimy, if you ask me. Given the almost identical address, they're probably counting on a lot of confusion. Making matters worse is that "The Reef", with the same logo, still has a website up with pictures of the old place. The Red Carpet Inn doesn't even mention that there is a restaurant on premises.

Don't be fooled. This is the same hotel kitchen with the same "Lunch Buffet" as before. They're not getting any of my money.
