Rod ‘N’ Reel has been a premier waterfront dining destination since 1946. While feasting on delicious local seafood you can smell the salt air and feel the Bay breeze as the bustle of harbor activity unfolds before you. Gilles Syglowski, Food Critic for What’s Up? Magazine, boasts, “Superb. The fish was moist and delicious…overstuffed with a smooth, tasty imperial crab mixture-a simply delightful dish! “Jumbo lump crab cakes have been the signature dish here for decades but tenderness, juiciness and flavor also abound in our certified steaks. Saturday Rise ‘N” Shine Breakfast Buffet, 7 am to 12 pm. Sunday Breakfast Buffet is wildly popular, 7 am to 1 pm, folks drive miles for smiles and an abundance of creative fare on Sunday. Lunch and dinner served 7 days.

Went for the Wednesday night "Sinatra Night". The duo was very enjoyable, the food was excellent and the service was top notch. The bar was nice except for slot machines on one side. They weren't particularly noisy, nor were the players, but they definitely detracted from the ambiance. That said, they are well away from the dining room so they did not detract from the dining experience.

Wait for order was long and restaurant was not particulerly busy, but seafood entrees were very fresh and well prepared, so wait was worth it!

Outrageously priced for the small amount of food. Very disappointed.

We had a great time at brunch celebrating a birthday. Making reservations was a breeze, we walked in were seated in under 2 minutes. Well worth the drive and effort to get there in the rain. We will continue to come back! The food is amazing, the price is a good value as well.

We went yesterday for my husband's birthday. This is not our first time here -- it is our favorite breakfast place. I always book Rod and Reel for meetings and social gatherings with my friends. So many selections and great food.

Our brunch was outstanding from beginning, making our reservation on Open Table, to end the great service we received throughout the meal.
