Always a great experience at The Reel. Tuesday’s Happy Hour is one of the best in town. Margaritas, gumbo and a dozen oysters are my go to. My wife likes the fish and chips. Never disappointed!

Menu selection was exceptional. Our margaritas were on point! Started with a doz. superb Gulf oysters. Followed by grilled red snapper over dirty rice with white wine cream sauce that adorned this fantastic dish. We were very pleased with our visit. Highly recommended!

The food was outstanding. We were there for a date night, and I had never been. I didn't realize it was in a strip mall. The decor is beachy vs. date night. Don't let this deter you. It was some of the best fish we've had. The Jambalaya and the pecan-crusted Red Fish were delicious! A good option for families as well.

We got right in with our Open Table reservation even though they had a waiting line. We were also pleased by the service and menu. Our waitress was 'new trainee' but was quick to answer our questions and seek the answers with more experienced staff. We selected Red Snapper Pontchartrain and Almond Crusted Red Snapper. Both fish were good sized and excellent.
However, I hope the Pontchartrain sauce was a mistake from the kitchen. It was an unappetizing and oily greyish brown rue with only large crab chunks floating in it. I tried it thinking it was just a different style Pontchartrain sauce but it only seemed to have pepper as seasoning and burnt flour taste. I scraped it off and pulled out the crab chunks. I should have sent it back but I was tired and just wanted to finish eating.

Food was good
However, felt very rushed.
For a pricey lunch I like to take my time.
Otherwise, good spot for seafood.

It was still a good visit but you can tell they were struggling, the food was not as good as previous visits. We will be back again, hoping this was a fluke.

First time to visit. We selected this restaurant based on high online ratings. Expected some good food…and we were not disappointed. Food is EXCELLENT. Seafood was fresh. The halibut I had was “melt in your mouth” delicious. My wife had crawfish two-ways. Perfect. Staff was very friendly. The hostess, wait staff, manager…all very welcoming. No idea but it “feels” like a family run business. We will definitely be repeat customers.

It is always a pleasure to go the The Reel. We love the Happy Hour on Tuesday's for $4 margaritas and 1/2 off a dozen oysters. The service was great and the food is always good and consistent from visit to visit.
