Ask to have server, Olga!Friends, family & I have been dining here since the restaurant opened, and it's only gotten better. Why? Because the management and the chef and staff never tire of making it better. Their wheels must turn in their sleep to come up with delicious concoctions that the average person is totally unable to recreate in their own kitchen. For lunch with a friend, we tried the new Ramen with sesame chicken - delicious. My salmon was excellent, the bed of cauliflower risotto and artichoke chips was perfect. My friend loved the cheeseburger she ordered. We had the oatmeal pecan pie with bourbon and sweet potato ice cream which was the best pecan pie we've ever had. What I love most about Reel Club is the quality food and excellent waitstaff (Olga)!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my best meals there yet!Met my friend for dinner. I had delicious drinks in the bar with some colleagues while I waited. When she arrived the host personally informed me that my guest had arrived and seated us in the booth I requested. We started dinner with the delicious basket of gooey slightly salty popovers and homemade soup. The soup is always great! I had the Copper River Salmon special which came with a sweet corn and scallop risotto. Hands down one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. The salmon was perfect, but I couldn't believe the lightness of the risotto and large sweet pieces of scallop on the dish. The roasted corn mixed in just brought the whole dish together. The green beans were even great. Thanks Reel Club - you exceeded expectations yet again!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ServiceThis is the fourth time I've been to this restaurant. I'm never disappointed by the service and meal.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch was awesome! WorthThe brunch was awesome! Worth every penny! We have recommended it to all of our family and friends.

Moses was great especially in the absence of the waitress6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGin runOur dinner was spectacular, copper river salmon, fish tacos, the trio, and steak. Each done to perfection. Service was also great. But the best story was the drink in the bar prior to dinner. My husband and I arrived 1/2 early to have our usual tanquerey 10 martini at the bar. But alas, they had run out the night before and there was none in storage. I jokingly asked if they could do a run upstairs to the Wild Fire to get a bottle and they did! Now that is customer first.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedThe Reel Club has food and service that never disappoints! I have dined there and brought many guests to have incredible food and service.

A keeper5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentWe have dined at Reel club many times and always find the food to be consistently good.

Will definitley be back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe had a fantastic meal at reel club. Our food and service were both exceptional. The lobster Mac n cheese crusted filet was amazing. I would recommend it highly along with the pork belly appetizer, which was served on a perfectly done bed of risotto. My wife enjoyed the sangria, sushi appetizer, and the trio of filet, bacon wrapped shrimp and salmon. We are looking forward to returning often.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat visitWe have been there many times and never had a bad experience.

If you're going to have dessert you have to try the Mounds bar. i'm not a dessert person, but couldn't stop taking more bites off of my husbands plate.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDavid with Clients for LunchFirst time.

Food is is slighty pricy but worth the few extra bucks.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent meal andWe had an excellent meal and our server,. Olga, was outstanding.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good. We onlyFood was very good. We only had sea food, but the sushi was some of the best and the tuna appetizer was amazing. All the sea food tasted fresh. Our server was very abrasive and kind of rude. He complained to us about not finishing the side dish of steamed green beans and then refused to give us a dessert menu because clearly we were no longer hungry. I would go back again for the food, but if I got that server again I would ask to sit in a different section.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerGroup of nine, youngest age 2. Wonderful dinner, great food. Service solid including great wine recommendation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMother's Day Brunch at Reel Club is a highly satisfying experience. Great food -- lots of shrimp, crab's legs, and sushi along with more normal fare. Desserts are a bit pared back from prior years but the free flowing Champagne is good and not all that expensive. The revised food layout creates some congestion around the food and causes some delays but the wait is well worth it. This our 5th year of Mother's Day/Wedding Anniversary Brunch and we plan to be back next year5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchFood was great layout poor. I realize the restaurant wasn,t set up for this and it was our first brunch there.
Overall very nice. Now that I know where everything is it will be easier next time. Was a bit pricey, but not by much.
Thank you5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchBeing a brunch it was a great selection of seafood, some meat items, salad and dessert. The food was great, well prepared (for a brunch) and they kept the food flowing. Our server was friendly, attentive and helped make our dining experience nice. Everyone in our party not only enjoyed the brunch but want to come back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites.This is one of our favorite. The dinners are great everytime; but the brunches are even better.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood done superbly!My sea bass was so buttery it tasted like lobster! My husbands grouper with arugula was flavorful and perfectly cooked as well! Loved the fresh oysters and sushi which was a very unique type that had a crust on outside of the roll! Enjoyed it immensely! Had a reservation but so crowded for Mothers Day weekend,we waited awhile and their bar area is limited so didn't get a seat as bar tables were devoted to serving more diners.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely go backThe food is consistently good. Love the early dinner specials. Everything is perfect.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at the ReelWe have eaten at the Reel Club many times and have always enjoyed the food, the service and, most especially, the cheese popovers. However, this time there was a new item ...flank steak...and it was not edible. The good news about this is the way our server and the manager handled this problem. We understand not every new dish is successful, and we absolutely shall return. The other dish we ordered was the crab cake, and it was, as always, very tasty, as were the side dishes that came with it.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good but suddenlyFood was very good but suddenly the prices went up a lot.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat celebration!Went here with 5 people to celebrate a college graduation. While the restaurant was full and lively, we still had no trouble hearing each other across the table. Nice celebratory atmosphere, without being stuffy. Food was quite good - had some sushi appetizers - the California roll was a bit "fishy", but everything else was great. Risotto appetizer with Pork belly was so-so - pork belly was great, but the risotto was undercooked. Steak and fish entrees were very good. Nice selection for seafood and non-seafood eaters alike. We'd go again for a special occasion.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with a group of friendsI went with a group of friends after attending my Christian meeting. The food was very good, I would suggest to large groups.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LOVE this place. GreatWe LOVE this place. Great FISH dishes unique, flavorful and filling. Wine list is good too!

Only good for a light lunch.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time but whenWe had a great time but when I booked the reservation I did indicate it was my husbands birthday. However, nothing "special" was done at the table nor was the table decorated. We frequently eat at capital grill and they make the table very pretty for special occasions.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my mother and familyTook my mother and family of 7 (including 2 four year old children) to brunch here on Sunday. The food selection was fresh and varried. The kids buffet was great and the donuts were out of this world. We had the memosa bar as well which was great. I will be back!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent. Only afood was excellent. Only a few issues I had. server was prompt but didn't smile and seemed to be in a bad mood yet wasn't rude to us. The hostess said they had no reservation for us even though I received confirmation and called restaurant to bump up time (they had it then). Hostess also seemed in a bad mood. Nobody smiles anymore!!! When leaving though we were thanked by hostess and other employees4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely delicious!The food was absolutely delicious! The parmesean-crusted scallops were amazing!!! The mussels were fantastic. The horseradish steak was incredible.

We had the cedar planked white fish...I highly, HIGHLY recommend this!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMReel Club is our new favorite.Reel Club is our new favorite. Seafood is a notch above any of the big chains, clearly a chef in the back with a real flair for bringing out flavor and texture of proteins. Soups, salads, and appetizers were quite good. Highlight of our last meal was a $2 small bite dessert of a muffin size caramel pecan cake with a mini scoop of vanilla ice cream. Wow.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent andThe food is excellent and the service exemplary. My only complaints are the crowded lobby while waiting to be seated and, like most restaurants today, overpriced wines. Come on now, a no-name 2010 Argentinian with a twist off cap for $43. That has to be a 400% wholesale mark-up.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent fish and excellentExcellent fish and excellent menu. You can't miss here. Everything is well done.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to The Reel ClubWe have been to The Reel Club many times and have never been disappointed in their food or service.

Great personality, very knowledgeable on the few questions we asked. Very nice. Our meal was excellent as always. Their menu has something for everyone. The had a nice wine list. We were there celebrating my husband's birthday. Everything from beginning to end was perfect. We will definitely be going back.

I was there with my teenage nieces and one of them spilled my red wine on my light blue dress shirt and when my waitress found out what had happened, she brought me another glass of wine at no charge! Many restaurants aren't willing to do that but that really wowed me. The California rolls and the sea bass at Reel Club are superb. Wonderful restaurant with attentive staff and delicious food!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
