Went there for raw oysters which were the most flavorful we've ever had. Also enjoyed the shrimp and grits very much. Service was awesome. Would definitely go there again.
After discovering our original destination had closed we came across the place. We were the only ones In the restaurant around 1230pm on a Sunday. For there only being 4 of us in the restaurant the service was rather slow and the wait staff was just standing around. Our food which was rather simple since it was brunch took about... More
Went for lunch on a weekday. Got right in. Server was friendly, knowledgable, and attentive. Good food was served promptly and was hot when it came out. Plenty of food for the price too. Very enjoyable experience. I'd come back again.
The Reel Cafe is a cool bar to visit while you're in downtown Wilmington! There is normally live music and the drinks are not expensive.
We visited The Reel Café with out of town friends and had a great meal. I recall sandwiches. Very large portions at a fair price. The place was very busy but had a very attentive wait staff to speed things along.

This is my second time coming here, the food is delicious! Although the atmosphere isn't my favorite our amazing waitress totally made up for that! There was something for all of us( including the picky eaters) and the portions were more than big enough. I have not been able to finish my meal yet. Will definitely be back!
