I underestimated how small indoor seating is at this place. The hostess didn't seem to really understand the concept of taking names and expediting seating but perhaps it was her first day. The owner or manager (I'm assuming) was getting increasingly frustrated by her inability...More

We had no idea what we were in for when we decided to visit the Rod and Reel Pier. Reviews listed it as a bit of old Florida and we discovered what that meant as soon as we arrived. The place, recently renovated, still looks...More

Fun place to go to fish day or night. No fishing license required. They charge $2 per person to fish, you can buy a dozen live shrimp for bait for $3.50 and can rent rods there too.

Response from Robert B | Reviewed this property |
If you are eloping, it would be great. For anything bigger than that, no. It is a very rustic place, so IMO not a venue for a wedding party.
Curious if the Rod & Reel is nut-free. Visiting from Canada with my family, but my son is allergic to peanuts.......
