I really enjoyed my stuffed haddock. My husband was little dissapointed in scallops (needed a little more sear) but truffle fries were delicious! The ambiance was cool in blue and grey with a beautiful three section fish tank and cool jazz playing in the background.

The remodeled restaurant is beautiful and really provides a great ambience. Reminded us of an upscale seafood restaurant by the ocean. We had a couple of appetizers which were very good (fried oysters and yellowtail sashimi). The flavors were excellent and had an element of surprise. The one negative was the portions. A single appetizer to share would not have... More

On a stroll from my hotel in search of a light bite. Saw the seafood sign and thought I would take a chance. Once I walked in It was obvious this place was well managed and I even felt under-dressed. I was greeted all the same and given a nice table with prompt drink and oversized bread with delicious toppings.... More

The entrees at Reel Seafood were delicious. The Alaskan Halibut was great. Small portion, but very good. The only problem was that their desserts weren't up to par with the entrees. The ice cream on the banana fosters melted way too fast and ended up being very soupy.

Two couples had dinner there last night. As we entered we were ushere to our table. They neglected to tell us that Happy Hour was only in the bar (didn't know they even had one until we sat down). They would not accommodate us at the table, so I was ready to go back to the bar for drinks and... More

Pleasant interior, good service once they noticed the 3 of us were sitting there and waving. My wasabi encrusted fish needed more umph. My daughter's rib/scallop combo was half overcooked i.e. the scallops. My husbands cioppini was decent though messy. Lobster was still in the shell. We will not rush back as I had a better fish dinner at The... More

We were surprised at how busy the parking lot was for a Wednesday evening, and as we looked around the tables that were almost filled to capacity, we had to wonder if there was a convention in town. The patrons did not appear to be families, and most were in business attire. Fortunately, we were promptly seated at a two-top.... More

We tried the newly decorated and revamped restaurant for lunch. The renovation brought it into the current century. The menu was varied and included contemporary items that did not appear in the past. Our orders were served in a timely manner and were very good. The New England clam chowder was excellent and loaded with clams. Calamari was tender and... More
