Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service were great. Always nice when Matt is there. Also enjoyed seeing the chef there too. The restaurant does a very classy job of presenting the food and cooking it properly."

  • "I've eaten at the Reel Club for dinner but my recent lunch was very disappointing. The three of us each had different items and we were all disappointed. The taste, presentation, and quality of the food is not what I experienced for dinner in the past year."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Everything was great for our business dinner. The customer was impressed with the service and the food. Small communication error on dessert, but, it was handled well. We had fun and enjoyed the night."

  • "My husband and I dined at the Reel Club in Oak Brook on Sunday, August 24. For the first time we tried the Miso soup, a special for the day. It was delicious! I would like for the chef to keep the Miso soup on the regular daily menu. I would order it every time!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The ambiance has a lot of potential but for two things: 1) the booth tables provide for awkward seating: you're either sitting right next to the other person in your party or way too far across from him or her. 2) it's a little dingy: I couldn't read all of the items on the specials menu because the print was fading. The service was outstanding! When I asked if they could halve the jumbo shrimp appetizer (since I was the only one at the table who liked them), the waitress quickly figured out how to accommodate the request. She even offered that I did not have to get poached shrimp but could request them fried or grilled as well. She was pleasant and helpful. Despite a changed mashed potatoes recipe, the food and drink were great!"

  • "We always have a good meal at Reel Club (honestly, at all Lettuce Entertain You restaurants). The one thing to point out from this visit...it's nice to see the staff take a step forward when its crowded. We arrived early for our reservations and were waiting near the hostess stand after being at the bar for a bit, when one of the waiters from the bar tables must have saw us waiting (note: the waiting area just emptied out after being pretty full and there was still about 10 minutes before our reservation time). He asked if we wanted to sit in one of the bar booths which just opened-up instead of waiting for a table in the dining room(s). We did!"

  • "The only complaint i have is we arrrived a little before 7 for my 7 pm reservation and we didn't get seated until 7:15. When i have a reservation I expect to be seated immediately at 7 pm. Paul"

  • "I wanted to surprise my girlfriend and have a great meal so I decided to try out the Reel Club. When I arrived after having made a reservation I could plainly see they had not prepared for my arrival because they placed meet at a square top table when I asked for a secluded booth. I was then placed by the bathroom when several other booths were available but only after I had to wait to have my table changed and then I was told by the young lady they forgot my name. I was happy with my server and because of the quality of the food had a friend bring his wife for dinner as well. So for the $250 we spent I could have went to any other resturant in the area and recieved a higher level of service. It's sad because the food was great."

  • "We have eaten at Reel Club several times and always enjoyed it. This time we were disappointed with out lunch. We ordered the business special which was shrimp & cod and it had no taste, it was very bland. Usually we never order the same entree but this time all four of us did. My husband enjoyed the clam chowder and my daughter enjoyed the gumbo but thought it could have had more kick to it. Our granddaughter loved the gumbo, she is 8. They just moved back from New Orleans so they know their Gumbo. The salad was also very good as was the rice pudding. We would still dine here but order something different."

  • "This is what a restaurant should be elegant,beautiful, impeccable top shelf service! Rich Melman deserve's a medal from our President. Chicago's lucky to have him as one of our best restaurateurs!"

  • "The food was fine, good dinner crowd but a little loud if you want privacy. Food portions were very small for the prices charged."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "I love LEYE restaurants. When we arrived we were one of the first tables since we were eating early. The carpet looked filthy with food (Probably from the Sunday Brunch which took place earlier). Our waiter forgot my husbands Vegetable Side so when it finally came out he was done with his meal. Surprised the restaurant charged us for the error. I had put in my res notes about my grandma's bday but the waiter didn't seem to know until I brought it up. The restaurant ended up getting very busy and I could tell my server had a lot of tables which brought the service level down. All the food that came out was yummy but my steak which was ordered Medium came out well done but I ate it. I don't like making scenes in front of guests."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "This was my first experience at the REEL CLUB and was looking forward to brunch. I was somewhat disappointed because I expected more than just a couple of sushi varieties. The oysters, another one of my favorites, were not adequate. In fact one of them was spoiled. The fresh shrimp were huge and fresh. I really enjoyed the smoked fish that was offered and the prime rib. The desserts were awesome."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "this was not our 1st time there. we love the food so we took a friend to celebrate his bday. we waited 1hr 10 min for our food and over 15 min for our 1st round of drinks. another 15 min for our 2nd round of drinks. i also requested armando which they did not give us(although he was there) we were given kim who was horrible(ironically we had her the week before and she was fine maybe cuz they were slow) the manager was nice and took care of us but the party we were with will not be going back. how unfortunate."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The plates were well presented; however, my cauliflower was burned! The salad I shared with my husband was huge. the beet soup with ginger was interesting; perhaps a little too much ginger. The small bite dessert was a great idea. I love a taste of sweet at the end of a meal but usually am too full for a full dessert."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Always fresh and yummy, service is ALWAYS superior."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We tried the halibut, salmon, trout and a seafood salad. The salmon was excellent, very fresh and good flavors. The trout and halibut were just ok, and the salad was below par. Service was good , but forgot a few instructions and everything was decent, but not anything special to go back for."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "This was our first time to Reel Club and every person in our party cannot wait to go back! The food was amazing, the service impeccable, and it has a very friendly atmosphere. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we wanted for nothing. It was a special occasion that evening and everyone involved made it an evening to remember!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We had a great time, celebrating a Birthday! Food was great! I had Whole Lobster Special! Service was excellent! We will be back!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "No matter what day you go to Reel Club the place is always alive with people I had the salmon with cauliflower risotto and hubby had another risotto both came with a side of green beans that were overloaded with butter to the point we could not eat them. Salmon was done perfectly, hubby's complained that his risotto again contained too much butter. I guess will have to try the restaurants simplified version of their many fish entres that come simply with a spinach base. Although we were disappointed in the dinner (to the point that we didn't feel well after all the butter) in the past we have had delightful meals there so we will give it another chance in the future."

  • "We went a month ago for our anniversary and were pleasantly suprised at how delicious our meal was. There is a deal on Monday nights for a 1 1/2 lobster, shrimp, mussels and sausage for $25.00 that is an unbelievable deal. That time we had a very attentive waitress. We went this past Monday for my birthday. We had the same meal which was fabulous but our waiter was terrible. Our water glass was never refilled throughout our whole meal even though they were empty. Service was very slow and not friendly. After the meal the first time they brought hot, moist towels to freshen up. Nothing this time. It took forever to get our bill. However to us the food is worth going for."

  • "We had a lovely anniversary dinner. Food and service was excellent. We will return."

  • "I am in the seafood business and found "Reel Club" to one of the best seafood restaurants I have eaten at!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "But they managed...lobster risotto with beautiful pieces of lobster but totally bland and flavorless. Nicely prepared calamari with marinara (!) sauce so hot and spicy that it was virtually inedible. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We went to Reel Club to celebrate some exciting news. The restaurant was nearly empty when we got there for brunch at 1115. We were seated rather far from the buffet. The food was good, although the buffet was smaller Han we had imagined. The service was outstanding, friendly, prompt and capable. We would return"

  • "The ambience was good appetizers were good as well as the drinks entree needed to be better"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We were so excited to go out to dinner Saturday night. Fresh fish possibly sushi yum! It took over an hour to get our food which was only so so. Took an hour for dessert. The bathroom stall was falling apart. There were no paper towels or anything to dry your hands. Guess for a restaurant in such a prime location, I was expected more. First and last time for us."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Started with the crunchy shrimp and also the scallop appetizers. The shrimp were good and abundant, although the sauce that came with them was not to our liking. The scallops are a little misleading, as it looks like 4 hugs scallops covered in breading and cheese, but actually they are smaller scallops mixed in. My wife had the trio with salmon/filet/shrimp and I had a lobster roll. We had the key lime cheesecake for dessert and it was very good."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Reel Club. This place never disappoints! I have a food allergy and our server made sure that everything I ordered, did not have the ingredient that I am allergic to. A few substitutions were made without any hassle or additional charge. The crab cakes and gumbo were the perfect start to our dinner. The grilled grouper and scallops with risotto were amazing. We will be back!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I love fish, so I chose this restaurant. There are plenty of choices, something that does not often happen in the average restaurant. The waiter was top-notch, anticipating our wine desires (and in the right price range) before we asked. The clientele ran the gamut from kids in shorts to an obvious business dinner, so you don't need a jacket and tie."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Looked up menus on about 10 different resturants before we chose this. We were delighted from the minute we walked in. They even brought out cup cakes with candles for my bday"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "A very solid choice for dinner with spouse or business dinner. Nothing outstanding about the ambience...but a nice place. Food is very good, and the choice is excellent for all different tastes (leaning toward a seafood preference). Solid choice, good service...and the pre-dinner rolls are amazing."
