I took my husband here for his birthday. The brunch buffet was just okay... a good variety of food but I think i was looking for more hot options especially for the crab legs. The omelets were awesome and so were the waffles. The mimosa's kept coming which was great and our server Benjamin was outstanding. We had a nice time and I was pleased that valet was only $4. I would definitely return .

First, the rolls you get at the table feel like you are chewing undercooked bread. As I chewed what felt like a ball of uncooked dough I asked the waitress if they were raw in the middle or if that's the way they are supposed to be. Amazingly they are made with tapioca or something and that's the way they come. Yuck. So very nicely she offered to being me some different bread. Was so hungry I said sure. She comes back with 4 slices of bread that had to have been baked about a week ago. Was borderline toast. Main course was decent (had scallops) but I never recovered from the bread. I won't go back.

Great food in a comfortable setting. A bit pricey, but nice for a special occasion. Swordfish special was excellent and two of our party enjoyed the seafood trio, especially the bacon wrapped shrimp. The salmon was also excellent. An enjoyable dinner!

Server was a bit slow in taking our orders. If he was waiting because the bread/rolls were not done baking yet so they couldn't be served right away like normal, it would have been nice to hear that sooner rather than later.

Menu resembles Shaws a bit but food & service not nearly as good. Waitress was not very attentive. Crab legs were not heated throughout so cold with hot spots; shell was buttery, and attempt at pre-cutting was sloppy so it was messy. Scallops very small (but tasty). Brussels sprouts were undercooked; very firm & green. Husbands steal (ribeye) was fine.

We celebrated my dad’s 75th birthday on a boisterous Friday night. There have been some pretty significant changes to the menu over the last year but one thing that remains a constant is the service. It’s excellent. The crunchy munchy shrimp is a favorite. The seafood is always hot, fresh with no “fishy” smell or taste. We also love our dessert options with half or full portion sizes available.

We enjoyed a lite dinner while we watched the World Series. It was a slow nite and so it was very relaxing. We sat in the bar, and the bartender was funny & attentive (but not "too"). We had the blackened Mahi sandwich with spinach & mashed potatoes in stead of fries. Delicious - and a great evening.

My wife and I have been to reel for lunch many times,but this trip was for ,in my case, the brunch
We came from Des Plaines but that brunch was worth the drive. Tons of all sorts of seafood.
My wife ordered from the lunch menu and had the salmon,and hasn't stopped raving about it since.

👎 like a lot of LEYE restaurants, Reel Club is hit or miss. Tonight it was a huge miss. The spicy tuna roll my husband had was fine, but it’s pretty hard to screw up a roll like that. Ditto the chopped salad, which arguably was the best thing about our meal. Our seafood, halibut and a combo plate of crab cake, bacon wrapped shrimp and scallops were mostly overdone. The planting of the food is uninspired and unappetizing. Slopped on the plate with no enhancements or embellishments. They are particularly stingy with the lemons that come with the entrees. One tiny little sliver. They do know how to make a good martini 🍸 though.

First time trying this restaurant and it will not be the last. Great service from Chris G. My husband and I went for their happy hour and they have great selections. We tried the Acapulco sushi, bruschetta, and crispy shrimp were great. Skip the fries. They have the best popovers!! Can't wait to go back.

Everything was fantastic except for the waitress trying to shoo us out of the restaurant because she had an hour driving home. I don't think that was fair for the percentage of tip I gave her (older blond).

Other than that... I will be back!! Thank you

We had not been to the restaurant in a while. It was as good as we remembered. Monday is half price wine! Gumbo was excellent. Halibut. Fresh. We tried desserts too.
Creme brûlée was very good and the special pumpkin dessert was the best.

The Reel is a probably the best kept secret of Sunday Brunch spots in the Chicagoland area. Such a delightful place with the perfect ambiance and setting. The food on the buffet was plentiful and excellent. Our waiter was the best. He kept the mimosas flowing and was so cordial. This is now our go-to spot for brunch!

-ordered the 8oz Oscar fillet - what showed up was not a filet but likely a NY strip or some other cheaper cut
- red wine is served warm not chilled
- no steak knives with the $50+ steaks that are served here
- not great service although restaurant was slammed

Bottom line is this place is just as expensive as wildfire / cap grille but lacks the details of those places and getting a NY strip instead of a filet is less than ideal. Skip this place for the money and go elsewhere
