The Reel Seafood & Grill
We had an exceptional experience here! Thank you Frank for going above and beyond to make our evening special. The food was amazing.

The food is always awesome as well as the service. I enjoy going to the restaurant for brunch with my family and date night with my husband.
Service was good by a young staff. The food was alright but the quality wasn’t quite like you get at other restaurants in this price range. Our fish was cooked properly but the spices and sauces seemed a little heavy handed to me. It was good overall so if you haven’t eaten here before, give them a try.
Our first visit to the Reel Seafood & Grill and we were very pleased. The menu is very interesting with entrees for all. Beverages were plentiful and moderately priced. The wine list was adequate. We plan to return.
We always have gone for dinner which was excellent and is excellent but as far as a Sunday brunch it was terrible I ordered the eggs crab benedict it was not good at all . The egg was thin crab cake was fried to to dry and there was about maybe one half of a teaspoon of hollandaise on top of the egg. It was one of the worst eggs benedict sauce ever eaten. And I wanted everything to be special because it was my boyfriend's birthday can't say much for his. he said it was all right thank God , but I would not recommend Sunday brunch to anyone and I'm going to stick with dinner that's excellent thank you for your time yours sincerely Sandy Dorn
Food was very good. Hot and tasty. A little pricey but I would still go back.
Fabulous food. The lobster bisque is heavenly. My husband and I had snapper and mahi and both were very tasty. Portions were large enough to take some home where they earned more great reviews by our son who ate the leftovers. Dani was a very attentive wait staff.
Great atmosphere, definitely going back.
Our server did a great job of getting the orders for my grandchildren placed and served.
They were not prepared to seat us at the reservation time. We were basically treated as if we walked in and waited on a table. It was unclear how they even knew who confirmed our reservation thru open table. I recommended to them to postpone using opentable until they can better manage reservations.
Food was great. Bar was not stocked that well. No Weller bourbon or Wild Turkey and had to settle for Jameson, which i like. Waitress was great. Food portions were right on. Seamed like everyone cleaned their plate and we did not have to roll out the door. Prices were a little north of where i think they should be, but we will be back.
The food was fresh, beautiful, perfectly cooked and so delicious! We enjoyed our server, CeCe - she was attentive and fun to interact with.
Father’s Day Dinner was exceptional! My daughter had not dined at the Reel and was very pleased. We will make it a regular daddy/daughter date location!
Food choices and quality were very good. The experience was only diminished by the very spotty, slow and sometimes non existent waiter. Had to ask for Silverware and for drink refills.
Excellent food, wonderful service. A bit pricey for the portions, but well worth a try!
The service was excellent but the food was just average. The highlight of the meal is their shrimp cocktail appetizer jazzed up with spicy sauce, avocados and pickled vegetables. My husband ordered a wedge salad and added blackened shrimp, for the price point, it was mediocre. I had the crawfish platter, the crawfish were very small and the breading overtook the flavor of the crawfish. The dirty rice was very spicy and slightly over cooked. All in all it was average at best and a bit overpriced. We won’t be going back again.
Loved our waiter Michael
We will be back
Solid food a little overpriced. Wait staff almost too attentive for our liking. Constantly interrupted our conversation to check in which at times was completely unnecessary to do so.
Made open table reservations, but the only seating available was in the crowded noisy bar. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was such close quarters that we might as well have been at the same table. Ordered coconut shrimp appetizer. Came out almost burnt, I opened one up to see the inside and to my surprise the shrimp was extremely tiny - almost no flesh at all. All breading. Manager took off bill. Salmon salad was good. Will definitely not order shrimp there again.
Outstanding food with outstanding service. One of our favorites.
Fried oysters were not done in the middle. Batter was still uncooked. Stuffed crab was not good.
Fried shrimp were good.
Overall was good, but miss the Spring Branch location and the pick two or pick three lunch menu. Prices are comparable to McAdoos but not as high of quality and atmosphere.
The waitress got everything wrong from my drink to my dinner. My fries were old and cold. The shrimp cake, which should have been a crab cake, was disappointing. They ended up refunding our money for my dinner. Will never go back!
After reviewing the menu on line I was very excited about the dinner options. This was our first time here and although everyone was very nice we won't go again. The floor was dirty, the drink menu was sticky and my husbands menu had mold smears in the inside. Both his food and my sons food was only slightly warm.
The food was excellent, service great. Overall experience was outstanding. I've dined here before and services always good.
While is was a little crazy being Mother’s Day and lunchtime, the food was delicious. Our waiter was a little frazzled but that didn’t stop him from being kind and friendly with us. Overall the entire experience was a prefect Mother’s Day lunch and we will definitely be long term customers!
For mother's day and how busy you were the food and service was excellent tha8 you.
All the staff, including hostess and manager, were very friendly and accommodating considering it was a very busy Mother's Day for them.
Our waitperson was awesome! Sometimes when you get your food you realize you need something else, but you don't realize it until the waitperson is walking away. And then you do something like raise your hand and go, Ummm, miss... And sometimes the waitperson just keeps walking away from your table. We had two instances of someone at our table realizing they needed something after the waitperson had started walking away, and when they made a sound, she turned back and cheerily asked, what can I get for you? She was great, and we tipped 25% because of it!
We have been going here since they opened a few years ago and the food has always been excellent. This visit my wife’s fish was over cooked and tough. Maybe we just hit a bad night or a new cook. I will definitely give them another chance
Apparently having a reservation doesn’t equate to being attended to in a timely manner. Once we flagged down a waitress and asked for assistance, the experience only got worse. She reluctantly offered to help. The food was not any better than the service. The fried zucchini was very greasy. The grilled fish was tasteless and over-cooked. We are not difficult patrons in the least bit so it was very disappointing to have such a bad experience at a place we once enjoyed.
This is a MUST stop dining experience. The signature appetizers and dishes speak for themselves. My wife and I drive an hour out of our way if we can plan to be anywhere near because we literally crave their cuisine. The Creamy Lobster Bisque is exquisite. The "Hand-Tossed Shrimp Cocktail" is an explosion of flavor fusion. We enjoy the "Stuffed Flounder" and the "Mahi Boudreaux". Their sides are all amazing and perfect portions. You will want to come back again and again.
Great place to eat. Delicious seafood, very fresh!
Waitress/service excellent. Seated immediately with reservation on Easter Sunday. Took a while for the food but it was very busy. Food was nothing special but was enjoyed.
Even though our reservation was at 12:15, they got us in early which was so nice. The food was very good and the service was good. It was VERY loud but the room is small so I don't think that can be helped. It was Easter Sunday so most of the tables were filled.
The food and the service were excellent. We had a party of 7, and the table that was chosen for us was perfect. We had a great time and will be back! Thank you!
Easter Brunch on the patio with 6 folks ranging in age from 24 to 84 and one large golden retriever wearing bunny ears and a 14 lb. Shiba Inu...........yes - quite a group - but it was lovely for everyone from my mother in law to Ginger the dog...........The service was great - the food selection of off the menu vs. the brunch menu was amazing - basically anything you could think of was available. Everyone was well fed and happy. The price - although we had two appetizers and most had drinks - was very reasonable.. Thank you!
Food was delicious and service was fast and friendly. We will definitely return to eat here again.
Food was cold. Server gave wrong plate to wrong person. Plate was missing a sauce and server had no idea of the plate content. Wait time for cold food was long and the place was not busy. For the price I paid for 4 people these issue should not have happened. Very disappointed and I will not be returning
Unique menu for New Braunfels. Would love to see some more creativity in the specials, but overall, dishes were well plated and tasteful.
