Very good place for lunch, but somewhat overpriced.

My husband and I had lunch and were pleased with the food and service. We both ordered a "Harvest" salad, one with chicken and the other with shrimp. Some of the greens were a bit wilted, but overall we were pleased. They always serve warm bread and butter which is delicious and a nice... read more

I frequently meet some friends for lunch at the Reel Seafood Co. The dining room was completely redone and it is now very airy and modern. Our lunches are always good and the wait stuff very accommodating. I usually get their crab cakes , which are delicious and is served with either coleslaw, french fries or a salad.

A colleague and I had to go to Albany twice on business this year. The first time, we went to this restaurant just because it was convenient. The second time, we made it a point to go back and bring some more colleagues. It is a relaxed atmosphere that is warm and inviting--soft lighting that is soothing but bright enough... More

After spending a week in Albany, we decided to splurge and tried Reel Seafood. Our server was pleasant and knowledgable of the menu. We ordered drinks and got Duck Confit for an appetizer. It was good, had a lot of flavor, but didn't meet our expectations at this price point. My wife ordered the tuna over rice and was thrilled... More

I stayed at the Homewood Suite down the street, so I could walk here. Being used to traveling and dining alone, I'm used to not being given a great table, but this one was right next to the kitchen. The server was very busy, and I waited about 10 minutes before anyone came by. The food was average, and rather... More

I've been here twice now. First time I got the Chippino and it was very bland and boring. The second time I got the lobster risotto. The rice tasted like kraft Mac and cheese sauce. The lobster tail (not Maine lobster) had some seasoning with an overpowering taste. Could not enjoy the lobster. The staff is very friendly though.

We were staying down the street and arrived as a bus tour. As a party of 31 we were treated as individuals which is not the norm. The fish dinner was as good as it gets. The service was outstanding. Nice bar area. We would like to return.

Although our waiter, Corey, said that he'd only been working there a couple of weeks, he was superb--friendly and attentive and completely knowledgeable regarding the menu. He gave us fair warning that the just-made rolls were hot; when they cooled, we delighted in the various toppings with which they were served, and our seafood was uniformly delicious.

My wife and I stumbled into this WONDERFUL seafood restaurant late one evening. The staff made us feel welcomed from the very beginning. We loved the atmosphere, the food... the whole ambiance of the place. We were literally the last guest to leave, but never felt rushed--in fact we enjoyed conversation with the manager and our waitress helped to photograph... More

I came here on a Saturday afternoon with my mother and grandmother right as they opened at 3pm for a late lunch/early dinner. We were seated by a very friendly hostess and had an equally friendly waitress; I cannot remember her name. My family and I love to eat and trying new restaurants/dishes so we ordered a few items off... More
