Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & Bar
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.
Broiled Seafood Platter
Atlantic cod, Florida shrimp, scallops, garlic lemon butter, parsley potatoes, smothered tomatoes & okra
Garlic butter, panko 1/2 dozen or dozen
Great Mayport wild caught shrimp.....and great service. Thanks!
Great food! Make a reservation even for early week nights.
Food was absolutely amazing! My mom and I went for Bite30 and the customer service and ambiance were great. Would highly recommend.
The crab cake Benedict was wonderful & the service was the best!
Wonderful evening with my wife. We started with the bang bang shrimp. Excellent. The bang was about 6 out of 10. She had the tacos with shrimp. I had the swordfish with dirty rice and collards. The three together were excellent. We shared the key lime pie. All the food was well prepared, warm and very good tasting. Service was excellent.
Friendly staff, beautiful ambiance and terrific food! Will be returning
We choose this restaurant because it was on the Bite 30 list. The food is excellent. We sat at the bar and the bartender Austin was very nice and friendly. Definitely will be coming back.
Love this restaurant. Every single time!!!!
Restaurant was extremely noisy but the food and service won over the noisy night.
Excellent food and excellent service
I came Into Reel fish for the Bite30 promotion. I was very impressed with your menu options, and I thoroughly enjoyed a Garrison Brothers old-fashioned. I spoke with Austin, the bartender, and Becca during my visit. This place has a really cool vibe and the people are very friendly. I will be back at this account during my next visit.
Great seafood in a nice atmosphere, the bar is the best
Excellent service and great food!!
I was at Reel Fish with a group of 6 people on Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed their food. My friend commented that she's never had better crab cakes. I had shrimp/avocado Louie which was very tasty. My husband and another friend each ordered from the bite 30 menu and had the Low Country Boil. Both of these men raved about this dish. You will not be disappointed in the excellent food at Reel Fish!! Check out the coconut cake. It is yummy!!
This was our first experience at Reel Fish thanks to the Bite30 program. We were greeted immediately by welcoming and friendly staff. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious! We will definitely be going back to try more menu items!
The food was great, though it took a bit to get our oysters but they were superb. We were seated at exactly our reservation time. The restaurant was very busy and very loud.
We visited during BITE30, the food options were plentiful, the food itself was stellar, and the server impeccable. Well Done !
We really enjoyed our meal, the service was good snd the food was fabulous. We will be back!!
We loved our first visit to Reel Fish. We felt welcomed, had great attention and service, and all the food was delicious and well prepared. We'll be back.
Great food. Great evening with friends!
We had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated even though we had a reservation. It was super full.
Great service..tasty menu and wonder full atmosphere!!!
Great food and service.
Very noisy dining room. Hard to carryon a conversation
Thank you for dining with us. It sure was a busy night! Hope to see you again soon.
So delicious! Had the Low Country Boil!
This restaurant has a fun coastal feel and seems to be popular with the locals. I would strongly suggest making a reservation as the place does get busy. The food was good and they were able to help my friend who has severe food allergies. The restaurant did get very loud- which was fine for my group of six but I wouldn’t choose this location for an intimate meal. The bar did feel a little quieter, and, maybe once the weather cools down, the outside seating would be better for a tête-à-tête.
Reel Fish is always a knock out the park. The menu is very well thought out and varied. The quality is superb. Whenever we go to Reel Fish, we know we are going to have a nice night out!
Very good food and setting was nice. Looking forward to next visit
Will definitely come back!
The Oysters were absolutely amazing
JGee, so happy you enjoyed. Thank you so much!
Great food- loved the Bite 30 menu and the lightning bug drink!
Food was amazing! The server is great! And they have an amazing mojito!
Delighted you enjoyed! Thank you for dining with us!
We went early (5:30) and was surprised that it was so full already but that is a sign of a good place! We enjoyed the Bite30 menu and the food was outstanding! Our server was awesome and was the perfect level of attentiveness. It is a little noisy with the metal and exposed ceiling but the decor is very nice. Overall we had a wonderful dinner and highly recommend the Low Country Boil!!!
Hi MichyJ, thank you for dining with us. We are delighted you enjoyed the food and service. It does get very energetic on busy nights. We hope to see you again soon!
Had a 6:45 reservation to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When we arrived, place was very crowded and we were told it would be an additional 10 minutes to be seated. 35 minutes later we were seated. But no one came to the table. No water was served. My wife and I sat in dismay for another 20 minutes! So after nearly a full hour past our 6:45 reservation, without even a glass of water, we left. And I'm sure no one even noticed.

If you would contact us via my email, we would feel honored to have you back as our complimentary guests. Fred (owner) email@example.com
We have been several times and every time it is disorganized. Our waitress came to our table twice in over an hour and never brought our dessert. We had to find her and ask for our check after one hour and fifteen minutes.

We are using you comments to help us improve. Certainly, we would love to make up to you and invite you back as our guests. If you would kindly consider this, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org m.
The food makes it worth it but the place is loud and the service wasn’t up to par at this visit. It wasn’t just the server...he tried. But the kitchen was very slow and we got there on the early end of the evening, about 5:45pm.
Thank you for dining with us. We are happy you enjoyed our food and will use your constructive comments as opportunities to learn and improve. Knowing how many choices there are for diners, we would very much like the chance to have you back for another try. if you would reach out to me via Open Table of my email we will send you a gift card as a small token of our appreciation. email@example.com m.
