    Always an enjoyable experience. We eat here once a week if not more. The kids love the live bands. Staff is always attentive, always accommodating many requests, especially from the kids. Food is always great, haven’t had anything bad yet. Even their salads are great! The cherry lime crush is one of our favorite drinks, they will even do a skinny version! Our family and friends have also loved it when they come with us. We are excited that they will be open all year round!

    The stamboli ordered was raw dough. The underside was not cooked. We had to keep asking for things we ordered like tarter sauce for the fish sandwich. The crab pretzel appetizer came out with the food and at room temp.

    I my husband and I shared an appetizer of Bada Bing Shrimp. I ordered Seafood Cobb Salad and he had a half rack of ribs with grilled shrimp. The appetizer had surprisingly large and spicy shrimp, which we liked. The service was very good. We were never left with extra dishes or glasses, and I believe management checked on us a few times. Only suggestion: do not open door to outside so wide. Or automate it’s closing. Was a bit chilly inside.

    Everything was just ok. They didn’t clean off our table so that was a little gross. There was stuff under the table. The appetizer and the food came out almost same time which is a big pet peeve for me. This was more of a bar atmosphere. So not our kind of place. Which is my fault for not looking better at the place online.

    The vibe is fun and coastal. Sadly the service was lacking, as was the food. I ordered blackened salmon, but got the grilled salmon, which had zero flavor or seasoning. I wouldn’t return here for dinner again.

    We were celebrating my son’s birthday and wanted a new place to go. Rumor Reel was our choice and a very good one. The only thing I wish that they could add was a free dessert for the birthday celebrant. Otherwise, the food was good but not exceptional. The ambience of a marina is great and we will definitely be going back.

    Disappointed…from the choice of beers (only 1 IPA? And Hazy)…the menu was very basic and lacked FRESH seafood, on a dock bar?? Hamburgers med were well and burgers on a flour tortilla? Not good…

    We first tried The Rumor Reel a couple of weeks ago for my birthday. On our first visit we sat in a booth, it was loud but tolerable and the food was absolutely amazing right down to the funnel cake fries. Fast forward to going for my husband‘s birthday this weekend. We sat at a table in the main dining room, the sound was so loud it was deafening and you couldn’t speak to one another. And it seemed like there was a different chef. The crab pretzel and my husbands crab cake were great, our other meals not so much, and there was an sour/acidic taste on the funnel cake fries but only if you ate one that touched the bottom of the paper . The service was amazing. Our server apologized about the sound constantly and apologized in advance for having to yell at us. It’s more of a bar and meeting place rather than somewhere you go for a special occasion. We will try a 3rd time when we can sit outside to see if that is better as it pertains to the decibel level.

    Great location on the water with an awesome outdoor deck and well done interior decor. Food was very tasty American comfort food and came to the table quickly. Good happy hour prices. We were there on a Thursday night and there was a band setting up on the deck around 8pm. Will definitely be back.

    Salmon BLT was very bland. Calamari and boom boom shrimp ok but not great. Anticipating more seafood options. Menu was basically the same as the Rumor Meal. Definitely a good place to go for drinks. Friendly staff.

    We ordered the cheese burger wrap well done and it came out pink, it was sent back and then we got another one well done. The macaroni and cheese was excellent. The rockfish bites were greasy and tasted like cod. Our server was excellent and attentive. Towards the dinner rush the restaurant got extremely loud. Great view. I would go back for drinks on the deck. The food is nothing to go back for.

    Overall this place is a good spot. I would probably come back from drinks and lunch or happy hour. Customer service is outstanding. The pizza looked amazing but not where I would go for dinner. I got fish and chips and my wife got the salmon BLT, both were fine. Lots of different crush drinks to choose from. Great outside area. I would like to come back and try the pizza.

    We have been to the Rumor Reel twice since opening. Food and service was great both times. This will definitely be a new hangout spot for the family! We had to make reservations both times. This is only temporary though. I don’t begrudge them for doing so. I think it’s smart, it allows them to manage the volume and maintain quality. Great restaurant, we will be back!
