“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Staying in Albany for a flight out next day, Reel Seafood was a nice surprise. The food was delicious, the service friendly, helpful and professional. The menu had lots of tempting selections and the price was right.

“Best "Raw Bar" Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Tip, if you are on Wolf Road, Albany, stop for the happy hour specials. $1 oysters or $1 raw clams at the recently updated, classy bar, which is very beautiful. The restaurant is close to the Albany Airport and Colonie Center mall. So, if you are in the vicinity between 4 and 6 PM, Monday through Friday or I think from 3-6 on Saturday, it is worth a relaxing stop. I was impressed with the very good happy hour wines for only six dollars. Great atmosphere, good wine, I love it.

Reel Seafood is a well-run restaurant and has been the winner of many " best seafood" awards in local media contests. The outdoor patio is also a treat.

“Great Oysters and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

A great selection of food overall and oysters especially. A good happy hour from 4-6pm (I missed it but price was right from signs I saw) and a well informed staff for the most part.

“Verification Should Be Required”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Too bad Trip Advisor does not have a way to verify if a contributor actually visits establishments. It is all to easy for a competitor, family member or friend of a competitor to print a negative review for an establishment they never visited.
There are only two independents remaining on Wolf Road. Reel Seafood is one. How long have they remained at this location? How many times voted number 1 seafood restaurant in the Capital District? Speaks for itself!
