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.

I went in thinking this was a great local seafood place but seemed to be more of a chain restaurant hurting for business.

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.

We went on a Thursday. Not many people in there. Despite few people, service was slow. Internet down, no TV or wifi.

Alaskan King crab was over priced and over cooked. Soft shell crabs horrible.

I never post bad reviews but I urge people to spend their money elsewhere if they want good crab/seafood.

The food is average. Restaurant does very little to protect patrons from Covid, likely more interested in the bottom line and making more money for CHINA.

The food was great, service was good. The value for what we got was really good. The only thing I didn’t care for was the music that they were blaring. Most restaurants don’t play rap music the entire time, I understand having a mix of songs to suit people’s likes, but the only type of music playing the entire time was rap, which would not make this place family friendly.

Overall the staff was nice as was our server. The food was decent and the special for the night was valuable. I just felt that they were not equipped / knowledgeable about how to be a seafood restaurant. The menu isn’t very clear, they don’t particularly have “condiments” that would normally accompany seafood unless you ask (a few times) for them - and even then it is not quality offerings. For the price of our dinner, I would much rather find a local restaurant that has some local seafood offerings and a bit more experienced in this arena - as there are plenty of those options.

Second visit. 1st not too good, catfish very fishy taste. Decided to try again. Service and pricing structure reasonable, food quality just does not get it for me. Both wife and I had dinner baskets. She did not like the flounder and I hated the lobster. French fries were awful. Will never go back.
