We were seating promptly at our reserved time and we decided to dine outside because of, you know, Covid. I felt that there was a bit too much fan activity from overhead and otherwise as the day was not that hot. Once seated, I noticed in horror as my wife was seated on a wicker chair with a couple of streaks of dried bird poo about 6 inches from both shoulders. One to the left and one to right. After deciding that she would not likely run into them, I decided not to alarm her and didn't say anything.
We ordered drinks and an appetizer. I was disappointed in the margaritas as they really were no better than what I could make myself. When I spend $10 on a margarita, I expected it to be better than I could make.
The calamari appetizer was good as far as Texas goes. I had to ask to make sure that the pieces were of the ring variety as we don't like the version that's like eating a gulf prawn.
Both of our fish entries were cooked perfectly, but again, when I ordered an old fashioned, it was this weird mountain of ice in it.
So, overall, my opinion is stick to the wine and beer here and dine inside and you will have a pleasant experience.
It was very good.
Our first time to eat here. Service was quick staff was friendly and the food was delicious. We'll be back.
The service was excellent. I had the stuffed flounder and it was amazing. The calamari was excellent as well. We will be returning in the future.
Waiter we had was not to attentive in providing good service!! Got our orders wrong & kept apologizing for it. Had to ask for several things multiple times.
Again not a very good experience being our first time to try this place someone recommended was good. Food was good but again didn’t get what was ordered & did not want to wait more time to have him place the order again !
Always a great place to eat. Excellent drinks and the seafood is delicious.
Our server was very knowledgeable and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back soon!
This is a suitable restaurant given the prices they charge. Dishes were unremarkable, over cooked, this is fish after all.
With the whole covid thing it appeared our server was over served and did her best, nice job but it didn't matter with the food being so so.
Been eating here for years because it’s within a mile of my business location. Always great and very nice people.
I gave the food 3 stars because my husbands stuffed flounder was good. My shrimp brochette was cold, tiny shrimp, very very salty and ice cold rice. We ordered an appetizer and salads, and got our entrees first. When we said we didnt want the appetizer or salads anymore they were nice enough to comp them. We had been there before but probably wont go back.
They were closed. We were able to make a reservation and drove across town to a closed restaurant.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Everyone was polite and professional. Guitarist was the perfect addition to a great evening!
Food was amazing as always but our server seamed very distracted. I have had better service in the past
Our server, Madlyn, was the only good thing about our brunch. She was terrific. Even though we had a reservation, it took forever to seat us. The young fellow who was hosting really didn't know what he was doing. Our order was screwed up - our dear friend ordered oysters and they brought the wrong ones out. My wife's pancakes were over-cooked and dry. By fondue omelette was over-cooked as well. Not a good experience for a restaurant that is typically very good. CHANGE THE MANAGER !!!
Great food! Hostess was a little overwhelmed and we had to wait a bit, but overall all we had a good experience. We will definitely go again! Seafood Enchiladas are delicious!
Food good. Service poor. Didn’t seat us until 30 mins after our reservation time.
Great seafood and good drink section.
Much quieter than McAdoo and better price.
Really great and safe date night.
1st visit but won't be the last. Let daughter pick the restaurant as long as there was outside seating and we were all happy with her decision. Food very good (although bread basket boring & Lobster Bisque not up to par) and service was excellent! We are both previous restaurant owners/operators and service snobs. Leighton our server didn't miss a beat.
Awesome time it was our 31st wedding anniversary the drinks and food were amazing we will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service as always
This is an excellent restaurant with great food and a relaxing atmosphere
Great! Will bring friends next time
We will definitely be back. Quality food, friendly service, and Covid-safe.
Awesome food and staff. The seafood was outstanding and delicious
Everything was good. $12 for a bowl of soup seems a bit much.
We don't visit this place very often because it is pricey.
Great waitress, wonderful atmosphere, quick service and delicious food - we will be back !
I have no idea why I have seen so many negative reviews since the virus began. I went June 24th with my boyfriend and it was amazing. They were so fast and their touchless menus and pay was very convenient.
IT WAS NOT EVEN OPEN AND YOU -OPEN TABLE- STILL HAD ABILITY TO RESERVE A TABLE.
Excellent food and service in a pleasing atmosphere. All health precautions are being taken and taken seriously, without negatively impacting a great dining experience. Both inside and outside dining were open and operating smoothly.
The food was fantastic, service was a little slow. Had to ask several times for tea and sweetener. Overall it was great!
This was the 1st time we ate at this restaurant and it met all our expectations. There was a huge serving of Almond crusted red fish that was absolutely delicious.
My husband's Mahi Mahi was prepared perfectly. The sides were good and all the staff were friendly. We will definitely go back. The fish was as good as what we had last weekend in Port Aransas.
Good food, even better service! Best restaurant experience I've had in New Braunfels
Our sever was amazing. Food was subpar and overpriced. Saltines served with raw oysters were stale Seafood Fondue was runny not creamy at all served in a obviously large chip on the bowl. Fried shrimp were limp and soft like they had been fried earlier in the day
Service good, friendly and prompt. Mixed drinks so-so. Moved to wine and much better. Appetizer of oysters really good. Entree of seafood enchiladas excellent..and asked for them to be spicy and waiter and kitchen made them perfectly. Waiter was a low key personality and very attentive. When asked he gave good insight and was very conversational. We very much enjoyed our dining experience.
Tana has been our requested server on every visit to the Reel. Her smile, service, and knowledge are exceptional. I highly recommend Tuesday night oyster special.
My meal was delicious. The strawberry poppyseed salmon salad was fresh and filling! Service was excellent and the bread pudding dessert topped it off!
This restaurant is very loud and it's hard to visit. Their old restaurant in Bulverde was much quieter with nicer ambiance.
The food is good and the service is excellent. We will go back!
We celebrated a birthday. The food was wonderful and or server Joe was amazing! We certainly will be back!
All the food tastes Fresh and that is so important!! The Salmon is perfection. I had it cooked medium and added it to my pasta. Will be hard to try other dishes because it was so tasty. The fried zucchini is prepared just the way we like it. Cooked just right and not overly soft. My husband had the calamari and he loved it. And he is very picky about how calamari is prepared.
Tre served us and he is very personable. We enjoyed him, his personality and service.
We will be back as often as possible.
