Reel Seafood itself is very nice, not overly large, not noisy, just plain comfortable. The brunch menu offered an array of foods from waffles to interesting twists with fish. The prices were...

Went to the Reel Seafood Company for a large group business dinner. They had a private room for our party of about 22 people, that was very comfortable and convenient. Service staff was extremely helpful and our food arrived in short order. I had the Cioppino, which was the best I had since living in the San Francisco area. It... More

Recently traveled to Albany, NY for a conference located near Wolfe Road and had the chance to dine here. Service, selection and quality were outstanding. The Raw Bar had many fresh, delicious selections and the meals were fantastic! I will return!

The restaurant was recently remodeled, nicely done. The bar is separated from the dining area by a wall of fish tanks, extremely clean and filled with colorful fish. The dining area is casual and the service delightful. The wait staff were diligent but not intrusive. Their were 12 of us for brunch and our orders arrived at the same time,... More

My friend and I eat lunch there almost weekly. The bartender Paul is fantastic not only serving drinks but waiting on us at the bar. Believe me we... More

We hadn't been to this independently owned restaurant for several years. We returned for a family birthday gathering recently and had a wonderful lunch with the best bread, clams casino, Manhattan clam chowder and lobster roll I have ever had. The place has a wonderful sea-like décor with aqua accents. It is clean and well-lit. The staff is very friendly... More

Decided to order the Cioppino which was recommended by the waiter. Plenty of seafood in the bowl. Would have liked a bit more seasoning. Good service but a bit pricey.
