A word from Mussel Bar & Grille - Revel
Mussel Bar & Grille at Revel is Chef Robert Wiedmaier’s first extension of the popular gastro-pub outside the Washington, DC metro area. Paying homage to Wiedmaier's roots, the inspiration draws from an old-world Belgian roadhouse serving Bière, Moules & Frites, and other continental favorites along with a Belgian centric beer list. Mussel Bar & Grille blends the comfort of a pub, live rock and roll, the energy of a sports bar, and commitment to culinary excellence to raise "eating at the bar" to a whole new level. Chef Wiedmaier presents a menu that pairs his fine dining talent with a respect for his featured ingredient, mussels, in serving up sophisticated comfort food. With over 150 bottled beers most of which are exclusively carried, and 33 taps; Mussel Bar & Grille rocks the Revel dining experience.

    My husband and I have been a fan of this location since it opened. So sad to see Revel and Mussel Bar close down. Hoping someone will purchase the property and reopen soon. Love the bottled and draft beer selection. Like none other in AC. Love the flatbreads, crab cake and variety of tomato aps.

    I had a very savory mussel dish that included pancetta bacon, fingerling potatoes in a garlic leek broth. Yum! Wish I could have had the fried oysters discounted as a side dish to my mussels like they did with the pomme frites ( frozen fries ). Nevertheless, service was good, and the lunch was wonderful!

    Food at Mussel Bar was amazing. My wife had Scallops over cauliflower purée and I had mussels Medittarean. The broth for the mussels was exquisite. I'm so hoping that they find another spot or reopen in something replaces Revel!! Would definitely eat there again - wanna taste the other mussel dishes!!!

    We had a great time, we ordered spicy shrimp, Belgian beer, mussels & fries. We got a discount by using our Revel points and the service was good! The only complaint was that the music was a little loud -but the 80s playlist was really great.

    I was excited to come here for my birthday dinner last night(August 7th). My friends and I got there the hostess was nice. We sat down and the waiters asked if we wanted drinks; orginally we did, but then we changed our minds. Once we told her no alcohol, she become so rude and cold for the rest of the night. That kind of waitress is what ruins a restaurant's reputation. I wish I remember her name but she didn't tell us her name from the start. She also ignored my friend who said thank you and have a great night as we were walking out. With that being said if she wasn't horrible, love the restaurant the food is delicious! The decor is also very unique

    Myself and 4 other guests ate at the restaurant. The food was amazing! Everything we ate was perfect. We were seated out front which we didn't really enjoy....loud intoxicated casino guests passing by.... Service was okay a little slower than we were anticipating. But again the food was perfect we all enjoyed our entrees and had a great night at the restaurant!

    AC has some very good restaurants and this is one of the best. I had the cod and my husband had the chicken with porcini pierogi. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The very best part of the meal was the cheese plate we had as an appetizer. The cheese and accompaniments were superb.

    My husband and I were attending the Queen + Adam Lambert Concert. We didn't realize Mussel Bar was a distance from Boardwalk Hall. No problem until we realized Revel is at the very end of the boardwalk. No wonder business is slow. The waitress was fine but the staff including the waitress kept hawking. Really, let us enjoy our cocktail, ambience and meal. Don't see going back.

  • Have the oysters, skip dessert.

    Dined on 7/17/2014
    Went for mussels & oysters based on other reviews. Oysters were fabulous-cold, briny & delicious. Sauce with the mussels was excellent. One disappointment was the size of the mussels; they were the small, farm sized mussels you can buy in your grocery store in a net bag. I was hoping for the larger, meatier wild mussels. Dessert list was mediocre. Although chocolate might be the base for the best selling dessert, some diners like other options. Other than ice cream, the only non-chocolate dessert was pineapple upside down cake. In mid-July, how about peach melba, fruit topped panna cotta, cheesecake? We skipped dessert altogether.

    The menu was different. Many items to choose from. We had the mussel with potato and garlic and the kobe hamburger. Both meals were outstanding. Our waitress was great. However she seemed to be the only one working. She had a few tables so the service could have been a little better. Overall very good. Would go again.

    After waiting 20 mins to be approached to take our drink & appetizer order we waited 15 mins for drinks & an hour for a cheese plate. No one told us what everything was on the platter and no bread was served with the cheeses. we were going to be late for the concert we were attending. We have only seen our server once so I got up to find her. I requested she check on our food & bring the check. When our food finally came my steak was ice cold. The butter it came with didn't even melt. We also had a pizza which was ok and the Mahi Mahi which was terrible. I returned my steak. From my seat I could see the manager roll her eyes. It was a horrible experience. I never ate. I will never go back.

    If you stay at Revel in AC this is the best place to go for dinner. They specialize in mussels and do a good job with them. The chicken fried calamari was also tasty. There were other menu items I wanted to try too. Other menu items fell short. Unfortunately they were out of my preferred dessert. On the other hand, the beers were great!

    The mussels in any sauce they have is AMAZING. The oysters are so fresh. The honey bbq glazed wings were finger licking good. I only wish I had more room in my stomach to eat more. They have a $5 build your own bloody mary special on Sunday's. It def. works for me because I like it with extra olives and extra tabasco sauce! The prices aren't too too cheap, but it's definitely affordable.

    My wife and I liked this place a lot. More of a relaxed atmosphere, which was nice for a pre-show meal - but kinda pricey. Did not mind, however, once we were served out entrees. We both got the mussells which come out in the actula pans they're cooked in! I got the Mediterranean & she got the Spicey Thai Green Curry - both EXCELLENT. Also, the fact that they have Chimay Beer on tap will ensure that I come back. Very notable Beer List.

    Had a phenomenal dinner here. My server Lauren was friendly and definitely believed in the product. There's nothing better than when a server truly loves the food they're selling. Our meal was delicious! We got the Scallops that were local over a cauliflower puree - perfect combination, and the Gruyere Mussels. My husband has a few dietary restrictions that he was concerned about and Jen the manager was great assuring that they could accommodate us. You need to try this place! You won't be disappointed.
