My boyfriend and I received a Lettuce gift card and opted to use it at The Reel Club for Sunday brunch on the recommendation of friends, and are very pleased that we did. Since we both love seafood, this was the perfect place for Sunday brunch! We made reservations for 11:00, and were seated in a very comfortable booth. Our server started us off with some mimosas and oysters on the half shell, and off we were - oysters Rockefeller, sushi rolls, 4 kinds of smoked fish, eggs, benedict, crab legs, shrimp cocktail, a made-to-order omelet station, a waffle station, a variety of salads, blackened salmon, crispy haddock, breakfast staples (sausage links, bacon, fried eggs), a carving station with prime rib, fresh vegetables, and a dessert table (creme brulee, mini lemon meringue tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, cupcakes, and so much more). Champagne or mimosas are bottomless, which could be dangerous, but it certainly goes well with the oysters! For $39.99, we sure enjoyed our leisurely brunch and will most definitely return!

Good food spoiled by poor service. Have eaten at the restaurant numerous times and service is at best average. Yesterday wait staff was huddled in conversation with the hostess upon our arrival. It was evident they did not like the interruption of our arrival. Then we waited over 10 minutes before one of our party went to the hostess desk to ask for a server. The server came to our table with an apology saying that he didn't see us in the room, remember he was standing at the hostess station upon our arrival. He then brought one of our group the wrong tea. I can accept someone having a bad day but service here is traditionally slow and the actions of the wait staff continuing to congregate and make conversation at the hostess station during our lunch and the lack of attendance by our server has prompted my review.

Enjoyed a great meal with friends. The drinks were great as well. I recommend the jalapeño margarita.

In the past year it seems the Reel Club has gotten much better with service and food quality. We really enjoy the Reel Club now and love going once a month. Keep up the great work!

We went back to the Reel Club because of their superb seared scallops on asparagus risotto. It is an expensive treat, but we looked forward to enjoying it again. Alas, our lunch began with an extremely long wait. When our meals finally arrived, I tried the porcini mushroom couscous and was not impressed. It was overly salty and had way more couscous than mushroom. It in no way could compete with the asparagus risotto they used to serve with the scallops. Even worse, the scallops I had so looked forward to were not well seared. They did not have that caramelized sweetness they had had there in the past. What a disappointment!
