Have eaten here a couple of times before writing this review. Got the tots this time. $15 for 6! Just not worth that price. Chicken chunks are pricey for size also. Tacos are small and pricey also. Go to Forge next door instead. Much better....Actually most places better on the Island.More

Great staff and atmosphere! Good choices on the menu, burger was good, but maybe avoid Monday or Tuesdays, they were out of a lot.

Dropped in for dinner on a Thursday under COVID restrictions. We were greeted and seated right away. Marissa took our drink order quickly and answered our questions regarding the menu. They didn't carry her favorite wine, but had an adequate replacement. The Ray's Rum Punch...was outstanding! She got the Bourbon Burger (albeit with her modifications) abd I the Chicken Wings with an order of Onion Rings. Our server was friendly and attentive throughout!More

Great place to have a meal. Stopped here for lunch. Everyone working here is taking Covid precautions. Wiping everything down. Wearing masks. Great burgers and beer selection.

This place was a ripoff. I understand that prices are higher on the islands, and I don’t mind paying $17 + for a burger with fries out here. However, the portions were so small my plate looked half empty when I got my food. I...was still hungry when I left. There are plenty of other restaurants around here with similar prices but with more generous portions. The waitress was inattentive and did not do anything to remedy the problem.More

A great island bar. Enjoyed the Reel Burger salad while watching the Ray Fogg performance. Andy, Ray and the staff are tremendous and welcoming. Everyone feels welcome. Located in a historic venue with lots of unique memorabilia.

My husband and I split the French Dip Sandwich/fries and the peel and eat shrimp. Both were delicious. Our waitress, Jordan, was top notch!

Great times, food and excellent music! Several years in a row at Put In Bay and probably half of our weekend is at the Reel Bar!

I come here often to meet with friends, eat and listen to music. The stage and acoustics set it apart from the other island bars. One of the owners regularly performs at the place so he knows how to tune a room.
