    Despite my overall dislike of seafood, I was able to enjoy a very nice dinner with my friends, all seafood lovers. The parmesan-crusted chicken is excellent. Also, a generous side of asparagus was enough for three people.

    Our family of four ate here on a Saturday night. It was very crowded in the bar and around the hostess area. So glad we made a reservation with Open Table. We were seated right away at a table for four. The food was very good, but we were constantly distracted throughout the meal by how close the tables were to others and getting our chairs bumped by other guests and waiters. Probably Y ask for a booth if we return.

    We really enjoyed the food. Their gluten-free bread rolls were surprisingly delicious! We had Clam Chowder, Rainbow Roll sushi, Salmon with Scallop & Corn Risotto, and Grouper. Amazing food! However, the restaurant wasn't very busy, but our waiter took our appetizer order, then didn't come back until we had finished our soup & sushi for a good 5-10 minutes to take our dinner order. Other than the service, the parking is a pain as there are a bunch of restaurants along the same strip & there are a lot of valet reserved spots that take up much of the front parking. You'll have to park in the garages & walk during peak hours. The bathrooms are very dark & the stalls are crammed. All in all, a great restaurant, we would come back.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
