We visited recently for a family dinner and it was a huge disappointment. For starters, the apathetic hostess said we had no reservation even though we'd made one several days prior. Our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. His service was the highlight of our...More

I haven't been to Reel Seafood in many years. When I was there last the food was very good, and there was a good selection. Now I was disappointed about the menu. We had calamari fritti for the appetizer, which was not very crispy, and...More

Fresh fish, properly prepared in a beautiful setting. And oh,that aquarium! Worth a visit just to watch the fish. Also has a very nice Happy Hour. Oysters and clams on the half shell at a buck apiece is hard to beat.

We were psyched for our family dinner at Reel Seafood Co. Unfortunately, the experience was disappointing: in a word, inconsistent. We had a 20-minute wait for cocktails followed by a 30-minute wait for appetizers. Both were puzzling and irritating delays in a half-filled, nicely updated...More
