Born in the South where a feast means getting messy with friends, the seafood boil, Hook & Reel’s signature, is forking over bold flavors with a down-home feel.

But eating seafood is only part of the fun. Everything tastes better around the table with friends, swapping stories over music, getting down and dirty and eating with your hands – all with a cold drink at the ready, ‘cause that spice ain’t no joke. We set out to share the saucy spirit of the boil with folks everywhere – testing our very own recipes, inspired by fiery Cajun home cooking. The Hook & Reel seafood boil dishes up the “reel” deal – the full backyard boil experience and flavor, with a twist.

It’s a party, so we always laugh loud, and eat big.

Food and service was awesome. Unedited DMX and gangster rap probably not a good call for the majority of families.

It took a while for our server to come to the table. It seemed like no body had assigned tables. It took 45 minutes to get appetizer. Mozzarella sticks(they were not hot). Took another 30 minutes to get meals. They did not all come out together. We had to request drink refills and silverware. Fried fish plates were cooked well but no seasoning. Overall not worth the money.

Maria was our server for the evening and was excellent! She was so patient with our table and made great suggestions. She was polite and entertaining. The food was outstanding and I would highly recommend the hush puppies as an appetizer or the shrimp and crab legs with any meal.

Food was decent but the restaurant was very under staffed. Our server was working her absolute best and we appreciated that.

That being said that overly loud Soca music made it impossible to carry on a conversation. Management needs to turn the volume way down. Not sure I would go back just due to that alone. We might return someday.

Hostess was very disorganized and overwhelmed upon our arrival. We were a Party of 6 with reservations for 7pm. Didn’t even check out reservation, just scribbled our name down on a notebook. Saw several parties after us check in with same response. After waiting 30 minutes, we were seated. Waitress was great, but they were out of several items (chicken fingers, sweet potato fries, etc) Took an additional hour to get our food- which was good but not amazing.

I want there for my birthday dinner and the waitress was excellent but the management had very poor customer service. At the end of our dinner we proceeded to pay the bill and the manager used my card to pay for another families meals. I will never eat there again.

Visited Hook & Reel on a Sunday afternoon and it was not very busy and service was quick. Food, service and the location were all ordinary with nothing that stood out as special or exceptional. Food was hot, tasted good amd came quickly.

Made no attempts to follow covid guidelines, they put us right next to other people and were definitely not limiting capacity. Music blaring gave us a headache. They were clearly understaffed so service was slow. We wound up leaving early so we can’t even speak to the flavor, but open table wants a rating for that as well.
