    We had three people meeting after work and needed a central place--this was it! We were early enough to grab the "specials" and most bottles of wine were half off---what's not to like! The wine didn't actually make it to the table until after the first course but that was the only thing that we thought a little "off".

    Everything about this dining experience was just okay. We had to wait for our table with just a "we are running behind" comment, no apology. Our server had no personality and every time we asked for a recommendation he answered with, "many people order...." It was almost as if he was trained to answer this way. It was totally insincere. The food -- just okay. It was nothing special. It was nothing we will remember or recommend. The ambiance? It was a decorated basement. Overcrowded. Too loud. We will not return. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't worth the time or money.

    Great food, service was very good. Didn't rush us. Not as romantic as I had hoped as it was quite large but the noise level was fine, no issues. Would go again. It was also a birthday celebration and they had a chocolate cupcake with Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the plate. Very nice.

    This was my first time at Reel Club. I had invited a girl friend for dinner and catching up on girl stuff. The food was excellent, but most important to me was that we had a wonderful table hostess who kept us served without being intrusive and we stayed at the table way longer then we should have just enjoying the evening and coffee afterward and not once were we made to feel like we should leave. Hopefully we tipped the hostess generously and I will recommend Reel Club to my friends as a customer friendly great place to eat, especially on week nights.

    The restaurant food was delicious and the waiter was fantastic, but the restaurant area was more like a nightclub-extremely loud and noisy. My husband and I had to yell to hear each other. This was not conducive to a romantic night out. The echoing noise also made it hard to hear our waiter. Although the food was great, I would probably not return due to the noise level.

    Dined there with friends on Saturday night. Great drinks. We began with the Chef's Selection of Oysters, which were very fresh and flavorful. The Roasted Beet Salad has an amazing peanut flavor dressing. I ordered the cedar planked Whitefish which was perfectly prepared. For dessert we ordered the Crème Brulee which was smooth and done perfectly. We also ordered the Cheesecake which everyone enjoyed. We would return. The décor is beautiful!

    We enjoyed a pleasant dining experience at Reel Club on Saturday night. Our waiter was helpful and efficient. The food was as good as ever. We loved the sushi, sashimi, pistachio crusted whitefish, and fried shrimp. Dessert was a delightful small mousse...almost guilt free. Drinks were good as well.

    We enjoy this place. They typically run 20-30 min late but it's ok because they have a good bar. The food is good and they start you with cheese pop-overs that are wonderful. Sushi appetizer was good; so was the beet salad. Their cedar plank whitefish does not dissapoint; seafood cobb salad also great. I was less impressed with the service. Seemed like they were pushing us and didn't like it when we told them we needed a few more minutes to decide. Eventually it was difficult to get a refill on our water. Although we took our time, they had lots of trouble figuring out what table had which entree. It was busy and the servers acted as such. It's more expensive than most restaurants so you hope for some more attentiveness.

    Disappointing overall experience. Too noisy- too many children at 7 pm, poor service, and my dish was not great, salmon and forced to purchase sides that went uneaten, if the waiter and been better at descbring what the dishes did include, of course we would have questioned sides. My husband's birthday, and he got a cupcake and candle, but really felt all around loss of detail on celebration! The other surrounding resturants were quite busy, the valet was overwhelmed and I wished we had chosen an another choice.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary and were joined by a couple that was celebrating their 2nd. The hostess was very friendly and the waiter was fantastic. The drinks were cold, the appetizers delicious and the we got to the main course which was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family for any occasion and my wife and I definitely intend on dining there again. Thank you for making our anniversary a great night, great experience.

    I went to Reel Club on a Saturday night since Wildfire was booked. The calamari appetizer was good - nothing out of the ordinary. The pork belly was fair, but the rice with it was great. I had the Reel Club trio - glazed salmon, horseradish crusted filet, and parmesan-stuffed, bacon-wrapped shrimp. They were all fine, but not amazing. Everyone at the table got a steak of some sort and all were cooked to specifications, which is rare (harhar). I was glad to see it was more than just a seafood place. The service wasn't great. I had to flag down the waiter to take our entree order after appetizers arrived and he wasn't pleased with that. Lucky I did since the food took awhile. Overall, it was a good experience and price is right for the area.

    We arrived on time for our reservation, but waited over 30 minutes to be seated. At first, we were disappointed on having to wait so long, the hostess said 15 minutes behind on reservations, but it was really over 30 -- but the quality of food, and our waitress, was very good to excellent. We were not in a hurry, so that was good. I was wondering how long a wait, without a reservation. Not sure on that one.

    Took my Mother and Wife out for Sweetest day. 15 minute wait past reservation so not bad. Not much room to wait. Decor is very nice, and service was good. Food was disappointing. Had some parmesan scallops for appetizer, which were smothered in greasy, fried cheese, tasted OK but very greasy. California roll was good, but tasted like made with smoked salmon rather than crab. Entre was grouper for me. Overcooked and not very tasty. My mother had parmesean tilapia which was pretty bad. I'd say OK for a business event if you don't care about food quality too much but the place is very well decorated and nice ambience.

    I have been coming to Reel Club for years, because the food is great, and the ambiance is nice. However, the service from the staff is extremely inconsistent. I have had some great waiters, and some absolutely horrible ones. A restaurant of this caliber and in this price range should be consistently good. They also seem to be somewhat short staffed during busy times (like the weekend), which may contribute to the poor service. I brought a guest from out of town here this last time. I had a 7:15pm reservation and wasn't seated untiil 7:45pm (what's the point of a reservation?), and the waiter was so spacey. I saw him only once after the food was served--never asked us refills on drinks or anything. Didn't even offer dessert until we asked.
