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.

    Great service, wonderful food, fabulous choices of wine. Only reason I didn’t give it five across-the-board was that the noise level made it hard to converse with people at the table. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The meals were delicious! From the ceviche to the grits and ending with their signature key lime pie, Reel Fish has made us return diners.

    As alway a great place to enjoy friends and family. I had not never been in the far room to eat. Next time I would request the middle room, it doesn't seem to be as noisy. I had a hard time hearing the person I was with for dinner.

    What an amazingly wonderful dinner at Reel! There were six of us and we had appetizers, entrees, dessert, and wine, all served by the adorable, efficient, and entertaining Cici. Our reservation via OpenTable did not show up on the restaurant’s system, although we were able to show them our confirmation on our phone. Fortunately, they were able to fit us in without delay for a 5:00 reservation even though they were busy. The food was outstanding….not a single complaint. The broiled seafood platter was excellent, as was the shrimp and grits, rainbow trout, calamari, Fred’s dip, mussels, cornbread, coconut cake and more. Very good wine list at not outrageous prices. We’ll be back!

    Overall, the experience was outstanding. The highlights starting off was the service. Our server, Simone, was outstanding. She was personable and seemed genuinely interested in our having a great experience. The food was overall very good with only one slight hiccup. The deviled eggs w/ tomato jam and fried oysters was our favorite next to the peach bred pudding. We can’t wait to go back.

    This restaurant never disappoints, and last night was no exception. I am so used to having redfish served blackened, and tonight I had it that was baked in a crusted pecan topped off with a special pickled vegetable escabeche, served over a bed of grits alongside grilled asparagus. The taste and the texture of this fish and the accompanying vegetables was amazing what a great honor and salute to the flavors of New Orleans they got it right and I would strongly recommend that you try this dish before they run out this was my first pecan crusted fish and especially of a redfish amazing. Our waiter was super and Fred and his crew are superior and giving you the best seafood in central Florida. I strongly recommend you try this place if you haven’t tried it it’s a favorite of mine for seven years. Happy anniversary. Abe and Eddie

    What a great find! We wanted a local, non-chain restaurant that locals frequent. Overall, the food was excellent, service was great (thank you Skyler), the menu has lots of tempting dishes to offer, and the ambiance added to the entire experience. Leave room for the Key Lime Pie; it’s outstanding. We were there on a quiet evening after a holiday so the noise level was low; I would guess it’s much louder when the restaurant is at its usual capacity. This is a restaurant that can easily become a favorite go-to.

    First time at this location. We were seated promptly, but the restaurant was not yet busy. It was a rather long wait before the server appeared. The spiel she gave was rushed and she seemed preoccupied without "seeing" any of us. The drinks (wine) took a while to arrive. When we ordered, the food seemed to take a while longer than comfortable to arrive. The others enjoyed their food and said their choices tasted good. My food had a nice taste, but the temperature of the food was barely warm and that was a distraction for me. I would give the place another try. It was quite busy when we left, so it may have just been an off night. l

    Great HAPPY Hour prices and service is great. CiCi is A+++, we usually have a larger crowd when we go and she handles us well. Brava!!! Oysters are some of the best...you can get two glasses of wine and six oysters for under $20 during :-) Hour. That is a great deal. Best seafood dinners, fresh fish and fried fish if that's your style.

    This was my first time dining at Reel Fish. The food was amazing and the customer service was genuinely as great. Malcolm was my waiter and bartender. He made me the best Mojitos! He was very down to earth and everything that I ordered under his recommendation was great. I was even served by the owner, Fred and at the end of my meal we conversed about how my dining experience was. It was very nice to see the owner helping to serve and ensuring that your visit to his establishment was a great experience. I cannot wait to bring my 2 little foodie daughters and my best friends to this restaurant. They will love it!

    my friend and I both ordered salmon. When we were asked how we wanted to cook, we asked the server, if medium was cooked through. When we received our salmon, it was definitely not cooked through and quite red. When we asked the server again, she said that medium is actually sushi grade. If she would’ve just taken the time to explain that medium would be pink red inside we would’ve definitely gone with either well done or medium well. She seemed a bit annoyed that we asked to take it back and cook it a little more. She also did not check on us very often other than the initial order, and to bring the bill.

    Grilled fish prepared as well as can be done. Great veggies. Noise level ok for 2 but would have been a bit much at a larger table. Accommodating, attentive service. Very enjoyable meal.
