I ordered the Wild Alaskan Salmon grilled medium rare. It was served too hot to touch in the center and drying out. The filet piece was fresh but over-portion-controlled (thin and too small). The green beans were basically raw even though requested "well done". The risotto was swimming in a half-ladle of added butter. It seems that the kitchen completely... More

Reel club's seafood is fresh and reasonably priced. There was a wide variety of fish selections. The shrimp cocktail was delicious. The drinks were excellent. The reel club had a wide variety of new drink concepts. The waitress was attentive and made the evening enjoyable. All and all a great place to go.

Enjoyed a nice evening with friends. Our server Gina was great... personable, friendly, helpful, but not pushy. The drinks were outstanding, the food was good. Can't think of a thing to complain about... except there is no cell phone reception, which makes using their rewards app difficult. Other than that, no complaints.

We stayed at the hotel next to Oakbrook Center on a Saturday night. Tried to walk over to the Cheesecake Factory and a few other spots on "restaurant row". There was a long wait for tables everywhere except for Reel Club. Thought this might be a bad sign. But it wasn't. Had the Oyster Sampler Platter with oysters from both... More

I took my husband here for his 41st Birthday & he loved it. The service was great & so was the food. We made a reservation and did not have to wait not even a mere second to be seated, which was nice. We ordered calamari as the appetizer and it was so delicious. The serving size was plenty enough...

Ok so on our way back from the far western burbs stuck in traffic we decided to stop here for a quick bite & miss the rest of the sorry Friday evening traffic. Great decision! They have a wonderful happy hour menu in the bar from 3-6pm which was perfect... Started us with oven fresh mini-popovers that are GF with... More

This was our first trip and we were pleased with the results. Our waiter, Martin, explained the options, including a bargain priced business lunch of blue plate special of salad, fish & chips with some shrimp and rice pudding. I had the cedar plank whitefish. All was excellent.

I loved the blackened yellow fin tuna. I recommend getting it done rare. It was like eating sushi but with an incredible blackened seasoned outer layer. I was expecting a smaller piece but I was pleasantly surprised when the dish arrived. The tuna was at least two inches thick and about 4 to 5 inches in diameter. Everything tasted great.... More

I love Reel Club and go about once a month. The atmosphere is suburban causual. You can get away with mall wear as its connected to the Oakbrook shopping mall for lunch. And dress up a little more for dinner. Not stuffy at all just friendly place with good food. I recommend reservations for dinner or you will have a... More

The best cioppino I've had in years, included a whole lobster. And the server's wine selection was spot on. Great food, wine, service - and they have valet so I didn't have to drive around Oak Brook mall to find a parking spot. Worth the trip!
