The overall dining experience at the Rod & Reel is not to be missed while on AMI. The food, while quite good, is not the only reason to go here. You watch dolphins, people fishing, and beautiful Gulf vistas while munching on simple foods such as onion rings, Grouper sandwiches, or even a darn good chili dog. Really take the... More

Stopped in for lunch to get a c/o order for the family. Plenty of options, especially for younger kids. Waited outside to watch people fish. Nice view of the Skyway Bridge. Quick service. Tasty food. The only negative here was the staff. No smiles to welcome us, no recommendations, just what can I get for you?

Service was good but food was mediocre, under seasoned and overpriced. Best part of the meal was the view out the window.

Awesome fish!! Over looked the water, was quite warm in there but that is expected due to the temp outside... Very pleased with food though!

Grouper sandwich and bowl of chowder! The best. Do not let the looks stop you. Go up the stairs. Eat outside if you can. Walk around back to see the fishermen. Look for dolphin.

This is a great place to watch the water and the sunset. The food is typical bar food with some above average items like the grouper bites. There is seating inside with windows all along the wall or outside at small tables. The day we were there it was pretty windy so we ate inside. It's clean with friendly staff.... More

So glad to see they came back after the fire. A great spot for a beer or a bite to eat. Parking is limited so if you can walk over, all the better.
