Food was great. Server was very pleasant. We look forward to returning soon!
The Corv-19 pandemic has slowed business, but still a good place to go, make reservations first
I made 9pm reservations for my husband and I to have dinner for my birthday. We waited all day and once we arrived about 10 minutes before 9pm we were told they are closed. Hostess said she could seat us but it would take a long time since they are closed. We explained we made reservations and received email confirmations. She said she understands it has happened to her before. I said we would go some place else since it was my birthday and I didn't want to wait forever or have the meal just thrown together. Every other restaurant in town closed at 9pm which being out of towners we didn't know. She never mentioned the resort had a bbq place still open till 11pm. I ended up cooking breakfast food for dinner at the air bnb we rented. Plus the photos also showed outdoor dining options however it was dine in only. The photos were for their Boardwalk Cafe. Would never recommend there especially for special occasions. Hostess said it must be a computer software issue.
Excellent food, service and view. The waitress was a little stressed, but very good service.
Absolutely fabulous view. We sat on the Patio with perfect view of the ocean; made us feel that we were on a resort in the Caribbean.
Service, although very friendly, was very slow and servers/hostesses were confused. (I wouldn't hold it against them, as it was a very busy Saturday night, and there was a wedding going on.
I've been to this restaurant multiple times throughout the years, usually for the brunch buffet and holiday buffets. This time it was for a sit down dinner, with a reservation. I'm not sure if the kitchen is used to small individual orders, however, the food took forever, and was not very fresh. COVID seems to have hit this restaurant pretty hard in the kitchen, leaving wait staff trying to make up for it. The wait staff and hostess desk were great, but our food and wait time hindered our experience.
Celebrating a birthday. The restaurant really needs to be remodeled. Very old carpet and booths. My seafood Norfolk was very greasy. Lots of fat and very little seafood. I had asked for Mac and cheese and received mashed potatoes. It was not of the caliber of a dish that cost $29.95. Very disappointed.
My husband and I dined at Rod N Reel for our weekly date day, and it was really a wonderful experience. The food and scenic view were a delight to our senses. After eating, we walked out to the deck area to enjoy the view further. We will be back and highly recommend.
Although our service was good, the food was just OK and very overpriced. We had 5:30 reservations and they were already out of bread for the table. We ordered hot crab dip for an appetizer for a group of 6. It came with 2 pretzels and we had to pay extra for 4 more. Everything on the menu comes with an over inflated price.
I was disappointed. I thought a restaurant near the water would have fresh seafood as an option, not the case. When you sit outside your options are all fried, and not local. We were disappointed to say the least!!
Pleasant view of the water, good service, good food
Still the best Cream of Crab soup in Maryland. Dining next to the water was refreshing and relaxing!
My wife and I sat for 30 minutes waiting for our drinks....my wife even had to pure her martini out of the shaker into her glass....the server just put the shaker and empty glass on our table and ran off. The dinners were mediocre......way over priced, my fried oysters were like rocks....unsat.....won’t go there again!! Terrible Service!
The french fries were good. The service was friendly but not attentive enough. The rest of our meals (fish tacos and mariner platter) were just awful. The tacos were tasteless and had too much mayo. The fried seafood on the platter wasn't seared at all and equally tasteless. The crab balls had no lump meat and little flavor. The crab dip was ok but not enough bread with it. We won't be back.
The Oyster Rockefeller was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and the view was beautiful.
We're happy to hear you enjoyed the Oyster Rockefeller, service and the view of the Chesapeake Bay. We look forward to having you dine with us again soon!
This has been a favorite place for many years and I am disappointed that the food has gone downhill. Really? An ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes with absolutely nothing on it? Seafood is generally still very good, but I would give it close to zero on plating and close to zero on menu choices. They need a new chef pronto!
Everything was plentiful and hot ! Service was excellent!
Came to celebrate my husbands birthday, Ian was our waiter very nice gentlemen, all of the food and drinks were prepared well....would've been nice to have some drink specials
We were allowed to be seated earlier than I reservation time. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Server was great very attentive. The drinks were just right and you get alot of food for the reasonable prices. The Mariner's Platter was delicious the perfect sampling of different seafood. I will go again to this restaurant.
Hi TonyaJ, We're happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner and drinks with us! We hope to see you again soon.
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal at the Rod N Reel. Our server was warm & friendly, the food was absolutely delicious, and the overall ambiance was just lovely.
Hi DarrylH, We're happy to hear you enjoyed your recent dining experience with us! Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you again soon!
Food was wonderful as usual and our waitress Haley was superb. Can’t wait until our next visit.
Service was wonderful, food was ok nothing spectacular for the price of the items. My husbands food was not cooked which the manager offered to buy us a round of drinks. Definitely overpriced but it made for a nice Valentines dinner since we had a voucher with our hotel stay.
Food was a bit cold this visit. We had a 9pm reservation, however, it appeared when we arrived, we could have dined much earlier in the evening. That was disappointing!
Patty, our server, was personable, attentive. The food came out quickly and was very tasty. We enjoyed our dining experience.
My family and I always visit this restaurant. Thumbs up 👍
We have been going to Rod N Reel for at least 50 years. This visit was one of the most outstanding. Our server Sadia was outstanding, very friendly made good suggestions and gave me free dessert because it was my birthday.
Mediocre over priced food
Rod and Reel has a new chef. The Oyster Rockefeller is one of our favorites and the new chef's touch is evident there; good change. The bread has always been an issue. They have never had a good bread. This time the bread came out and looked wonderful but had little or no taste. We love the cheese and crackers that are served when you order entrée. The cold water lobster tail was delicious but very small only about 4-5 bites. My spouse had the cod and it was very good. The veggies need work.
We have been going to the Rod and Reel for more then 50 years and it is one of our favorites. It is amazing to see the changes in the restaurant and the property itself. We of course knew it when it was just the restaurant. The new garage is completed but the surrounding area still needs work and we cannot tell how it is going to be but they do have free valet parking.
Crab soup was barely warm
My wife’s salad looked like a side salad and have 3 quarter inch slivers of bacon and did not look very appetizing. I expected much better
My po boy oyster sandwich had 4 oysters and so much lettuce and tomato that I couldn’t taste the oysters. The breading fell completely off the oysters once I folded sandwich to take a bite.
My wife’s shrimp cocktail consisted of 5 shrimp ???
Very disappointed in the meal
Have been there before and was very happy with everything but New Year’s Eve lunch was a bust
I always enjoy going to Rod and Reel.
We eat there often. Our service was slow and the wait staff forgot to request our appetizer.
Good basic food in a pleasant restaurant — the Bay is right out the window
Our party of 6 enjoyed a delicious dinner here on Christmas Eve. We hadn't eaten here for a few years and were nicely surprised on how much the food has improved. Everyone enjoyed their meal and took home leftovers! The service was a bit slow, but we understood that they were working with a short staff since it was Christmas Eve. The menu items are a bit pricey as there were not many entrees to choose from under $29, but the food was amazing!
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner with us on Christmas Eve and look forward to seeing you again soon!
We went to enjoy breakfast with Santa. However Santa was in the Hotel Lobby not the restaurant where we were eating. Would have been nice if Santa would have walked around the dining area so the kids could see him while they were eating. But after we ate we walked over and found him and the kids really enjoyed seeing him and it was a very nice experience. Now for the food, it was very good and nice variety. I brought my parents who are hard to please and they were happy with the food. One problem, we were seating in the window with the sun blazing down on us. It was uncomfortable and hot. My parents could not even look up at us because the sun was right in their face. There was no window blind or anything that we could have closed to help. So while we baked ourselves and endured the hot sun, it was a good experience for the kids and we would go back if we could be seated out of the sun's range. We were happy though that it was a beautiful sunny day. Just too hot inside. Merry Christmas!
Brunch is always a delight at R&R! Food is fresh and plentiful. Whether you want fresh belgian waffles, custom made omelettes, or the well stocked buffet- you won't be disappointed!
They moved Santa Claus out of the dinning room. Hardly felt like breakfast with santa. Ambiance ruined.
Annual Holiday dinner with a girlfriend.
The food was incredible! Most buffet food doesn’t have a lot of flavor and this was all very good! The view of the water from our table was so beautiful as well. Our waitress was very sweet and the buffet itself was set up nicely. My grandkids loved seeing Santa on the pier too. What a perfect way to start the day!!
Hi Lisa, We're happy to hear you enjoyed breakfast with Santa as well as the view. We hope to see you again soon!
We loved the buffet breakfast. Something for everyone.
Brunch with Santa for the Family 👯❤️❤️
