Reel Club has some of the best crabcakes ever! We visited there after doing some Christmas shopping. Decent clam chowder. My companion LOVED the bacon wrapped Parmesan shrimp. (But he loves bacon.) Comes with garlic mashed but you can substitute something else. The vibe in the dining room is classy, elegant, jazzy cool. The prices are a little steep but... More

I had the Sea Bass and it was the best I had ever eaten. I went to Magianos and there is no comparison. So eat what each restaurant specializes. The seafood dishes by the whole family were different and they all liked their dishes. Their pumpkin dessert was also great.

Great location in the Oak Brook Mall area. The menu is full of great selections and the wine and drink list was very good. Affordable valet parking available as it is a very busy location. My wife enjoyed my choice.

This is just what it is...nothing great. It's super uppity yet they miss out on basic customer service. Sushi roll delivered to table - no soy, no chopsticks. Soup delivered to table, no spoon. Food was just ok, nothing was great, nothing stood out. No one cares about the pretentious gluten free popover rolls they give, believe me they would... More

I had invited some out of the town business associates here for dinner. The service started out to be outstanding but as the restaurant started getting busy, the service sort of tapered off. Fish that we ordered was fresh but the side dishes lacked luster and quality. The asparagus were stringy and the sweet potato was cold. The accompanying maple... More

We stopped for drinks and appetizers on the patio. The server was great and so nice. We ended up getting their recipe for their cheese rolls and buying flour from them. Stop especially if you like Crooners music.

Love the food here! The service has always been outstanding. I like the privacy this restaurant provides. This same privacy does wreak havoc on cell phone reception. Also, those popovers are both delectable and dangerous!

Went w my daughter and her boyfriend this past Sunday and we all thoroughly enjoyed our mid-afternoon lunch, no complaints. My grilled halibut was perfect over a bed of spinach and a few capers sprinkled for effect, the fish was moist and flaky. My daughter's lobster roll was chocked w lobster meet and the fries were crispy and hot. Finally... More

The Reel Club has a nice bar area with with a very friendly staff, the restaurant is very nice however I personally don't care for their booths that are raised and oddly shaped. They serve some gluten free hot bread puffs made with cheese that are outstanding. Their appetizers are very good, I especially like their crab cakes which have... More
