Seafood
Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & Bar is a contemporary version of a classic fish camp, serving fresh Florida seafood prepared in a southern style and served in a casual, family friendly environment.

The restaurant’s daily blackboard specials and core recipes feature creative takes on fresh-caught fish not typically found on many inland-Florida seafood restaurant menus, including tile fish, trigger fish, sheepshead, hogfish and other local species. The Reel Fish menu includes signature classics like fried seafood platters, shrimp & creamy cheese grits, whole fried market fish, such as yellow tail snapper, and Low Country Boils featuring shrimp, PEI mussels, scallops and snow crab legs.

Central to the restaurant is a raw bar serving oysters on the half shell, broiled, steamed and Rockefeller, as well as ceviche and peel & eat wild-caught Florida shrimp.

    We made reservations for Father's Day and a special offer from Pump Boys and Dinettes. They were the reasons for our visit. Our server, Simone was excellent. My order was incorrect and the food I did get was meh. My wife's shrimp and grits were so-so. Even the beer I ordered tasted like either the glass was dirty or the beer was going bad. I was not able to finish my drink or food. The other four guests at our table echoed similar dissatisfactions. Sorry, but we will not be back.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 20, 2022We appreciate you giving us a try. We are super open to constructive criticism and strive to learn from all our guest feedback. However, your comment about the beer and the dirty glass is purley vindictive and discredits the rest of your comentary. We work hard, have built a good business over five years and do our best to serve each and every guest.

    Our service started out good but went down hill from there. We ordered 2 side caesar salads, the firecracker shrimp, and the small plates Mussels with grilled ciabatta. We received the salads then the firecracker shrimp but the mussels with ciabatta never came. We were finally able to flag our server that went mia. . She then filled our empty water glasses and took our latest drink request. Our mussels finally came but no ciabatta. We questioned the gentleman that brought the mussels out about the missing ciabatta he said he would check (I believe he was the owner/manager) but again it never came. Finally after much time had passed and the mussels had become cold I flagged down our mia server and she said she would look into it. Someone returned with 2 small slices of ciabatta bread. Hmmm really? Our total dining experience was not what we were expecting or hoping it would be. We made the appropriate reservations waited our turn but our service was very disappointing.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 20, 2022Thank you very much for dining with us. I deeply apologize for the delay with the mussels and the snafu with the ciabatta bread. When I delivered the mussels to your table, I realized the two slices of grilled ciabatta were missing. This was my mistake. Would you please let me make it up to you and, if possible, tell me more about your overall dining expereince? We would really like to earn a second chance. You can reply to this message. Thank you!

    Party of five went to the restaurant for the bite 30 special. Everything started out wonderful our appetizer arrived quickly. Second course was slower to come. By the time we got to dessert we sat there 15 minutes waiting for our dessert. When we asked the waiter for a refill on our water we got an eye roll. When our bills came all three of our bills were wrong in our favor being nice people we call the waiter over and told him the bills were incorrect and he said I don't think so. And we said yes please look at them you only charge us half of what you should have charged us and one of the people at the table said unless you'd like us to have it for that price we're okay with that too. He said absolutely not and walked off with the bill never said thank you for notifying me of the error and when he brought the bills back he slammed them on the table like we had done something wrong

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 20, 2022Hello Fredg, thank you for dining with us and for bringing this situation to our attention. I am as shocked and disappointed as you are. I will call you directly in the morning, Monday. With huge apologies, Fred

    Our waiter was very attentive and we enjoyed his level of service as was the hostess for the night. Sadly the food was generally mediocre and specifically the swordfish was very cold. They did take $20 off the total but it was still 150 bucks for two with only one cocktail and honestly we are questioning whether we will return.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 14, 2022Thank you for dining with us. We're concerned that your food experience did not meet your expectations. $20 off the bill hardly covers us missing the mark so badly. We would like to send you a gift card for $150 in the hope you will give us another chance. Would you lease send me your mailing address? You can respond to this message.

    Wait time even with a reservation was a little much. Once seated getting your main course also took awhile. Oysters were delicious didn't enjoy the mussels at all. Had the seafood broil platter . Tomatoes and okra were too salty for me, fish had no taste. Shrimp, potatoes and scallops were delicious. I would go back.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 14, 2022Hi Tram, thank you for dining with us. We appreciate your constructive comments and will use them to improve. Kitchen staffing can be a challenge recently but we are pushing hard to strengthen our crew to prevent long wait times and make sure everything is delicious. Would you please respond with your mailing address so we can send you a gift card for your next visit?

    The food is always excellent! Whether it’s a salad, sandwich or fish dinner the seafood is alas fresh and perfectly prepared! Been here several times and have not been disappointed! Service is also always outstanding with all servers working as a team to make sure you have what you need and your food comes out hot! Our only disappointment on this last visit was we asked for some bread, a basket of 4 small pieces was brought to the table and we were surprised to get charged $4 for it!

    Went for Bite30 but they didn't have any of the swordfish that they offered so that was disappointing. Ordered something off the regular menu. The cod lacked seasoning and the shrimp was overcooked. The tomato and okra side dish was slimy. Overall the food was definitely not worth the price.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on June 14, 2022Hello Tiff, thank you for dining with us. I deeply apologize for not delivering a great experience. We will follow up on your comments with our culinary crew to learn from them. The popularity of the swordfish in the first weekend of Bite30 overwhelmed us. But this had been fixed. Please let me send you a gift card for two Bite30 meals. please come back and give us another try. Would you please respond to this message with your mailing address?

    Food was amazing, but service was very slow. We made a reservation for 7:15pm. We ordered our food within 10mins of being seated, but the food did not arrive until a little after 8:20pm. The server stated that they were backed up and mentioned that they had to ask a few servers to help out in the kitchen. The food was excellent, but on this particular day, the service was slow and the server was not very attentive. It was hard to get her attention for refills on drinks, and she did not take the time to frequently check on our table. That alone was not a good experience, especially since the food took over an hour to come out.

    Chose this restaurant when searching for dinner spots nearby the Camping World Stadium for pre-concert dining. Everyone loved seafood and this place did not disappoint! There were 8 ppl in our party and we all had different items and everyone was happy with their choices. Food was fresh, well prepared and appropriately priced. Nice cozy ambiance and great service to boot. We will be back.

    We had a lovely brunch here but I don’t think we’d go again. Our server was incredible, she was attentive, helpful and kind, without being at the table too much. The ambiance was also great. We sat outside, under a shaded area, the table was dressed super cute with decor for our birthday celebration and we loved that the coffee mugs were just random mugs! The area we weren’t too happy with was the food, it was just ok. Everything was fresh, no complaints there, but it was really, really bland. This is likely a place I’d bring someone who didn’t like spices, but I don’t think my immediate family will come again.

    The restaurant has deteriorated a lot, the previous time I ordered a grilled octopus and after having waited for more than now they informed me that there was no octopus. This time the seasoning and the food left a lot to be desired.
