    The food, environment, and service from the waitress was great. The only flaw was that the booth seating was torn and lumpy

    Food, service, and general experience was great. We had Sunday afternoon lunch for 4 (did not order from brunch menu). Portions were generally large. Ingredients seemed fresh and preparation was to a high standard. On this visit we had Fried shrimp & catfish, shrimp & grits, Parmesan crusted salmon, and blackened catfish. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Some minor preferences from our table made our meal a 4.7 out of 5.0 but that was for small stuff. We would definitely return in the future. Would definitely recommend to friends. There is a lot on the menu we want to come back for.

    Had a great dining experience! Food was great, but just needed a little bit more spice. In fairness, I’m from Louisiana so our seafood is a bit more spicy than most places. Service was great! I’ll definitely return.

    They need to work on updating their decor. It is decorated like a fast food restaurant (kind of cheesy). Other than that the service and food was pretty good.

    Christmas Eve Dinner. We chose the place because online stated there was red snapper on the menu. No red snapper. We have dairy allergies in the party and two of us know there was butter on something because we had a reaction last night. We informed the waitress of dairy and gluten allergies. Not blaming her as she can only go off what the kitchen tells her. She was great, really disappointed in management not keeping website menu updated and the kitchen still having diary in items we requested to not have.

    We had terrible service. I told the manager as I was walking out that I would be in touch today to tell her just how disappointed we were. I’m glad my mother-in-law enjoyed her food b/c it was her bday dinner. We were so frustrated by the time we left.

    Have been here many times, food and service is always constantly good. Stared with the shrimp and sausage gumbo, wife had the Poppyseed Salmon Salad and I had the grilled trout with dirty rice. All was well prepared and very tasty. Server was great and fun to be around. It was a short meal to having other obligations, but once again we enjoyed it and will be back!!!

    Went for oyster Tuesday. Even though the oysters are a dozen for the price of a half dozen, they were not worth it. At least 8 of the dozen we got were no larger than a fifty cent piece. We should have been given extra to make up for the extremely small size. Very disappointed!! The service was great. Ask for Emilee.

    My friend treated me to a birthday lunch at The Reel. We shared the crab-cake appetizer; it featured a lemon butter sauce and with the crab cake was utterly delicious. I enjoyed a combo plate with fried shrimp and fried Crawdads tails (a substitution request they happily made). It also included white rice. My friend enjoyed the stuffed flounder. Both meals were fresh and very tasty. Our server was friendly and attentive (but not overly so). Give The Reel a try :)

    Fish (shrimp) tacos were very good. Grilled shrimp were season well, tender and tasty. Menu stated salad ingredients were prepared in-house but Salad greens served for lunch were not entirely fresh — too many brown edges.

    We stopped in for brunch and my chicken and waffles were fantastic. My wife ordered the crab cake benedict which was also good, they went a little overboard with the seasoning for the grits. Less would be much more. Service was fantastic, great waitress, very personable.
