Seafood
Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & Bar is a contemporary version of a classic fish camp, serving fresh Florida seafood prepared in a southern style and served in a casual, family friendly environment.

The restaurant’s daily blackboard specials and core recipes feature creative takes on fresh-caught fish not typically found on many inland-Florida seafood restaurant menus, including tile fish, trigger fish, sheepshead, hogfish and other local species. The Reel Fish menu includes signature classics like fried seafood platters, shrimp & creamy cheese grits, whole fried market fish, such as yellow tail snapper, and Low Country Boils featuring shrimp, PEI mussels, scallops and snow crab legs.

Central to the restaurant is a raw bar serving oysters on the half shell, broiled, steamed and Rockefeller, as well as ceviche and peel & eat wild-caught Florida shrimp.

    Always are great time when we go. Sheepshead was yummy. Shrimp Po Boy was delish. Scallops were also very good. We had 6 people in our group for a birthday dinner. Food quality was not the best across the board. My shrimp salad had many shells in it I had to keep pulling out. Hushpuppies were raw inside. We were told they we get us some new ones and they never came. The Brussels sprouts were good but weren’t told they were a upcharge. Just told they were an extra choice as a side that night.

    Reel Fish is the perfect spot for everyday dining or a special occasion. The food is consistently great, and the service is always impeccable. Would highly recommend Reel Fish to anyone who hasn’t tried it yet. Cocktails are tasty, wine list has tons of options, try the Fish Dip!

    Service was okay at best but we understand it's hard to fully staff now. Food was okay. Flounder special we ordered was mahi. Not sure if kitchen made mistake or they ran out of flounder and gave us what they had. Told us 30 min after ordering appetizer they ran out. Acoustics' was TERRIBLE in dining room. Hard floors, metal ceiling glass front. Had to yell to communicate. That was a deal breaker. Went there 3-4 years ago and had a good time. Completely different place now. Would not recommend.

    Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & BarResponded on July 21, 2022I am very sorry you didnt have a good experience. It was a big mistake for us to have not notified you sooner about the octopus. I'm sorry you felt the service was unsatifactory. We will defintely use your feedback to improve. However, we did not substitue any other fish for the local flounder from Port Orange. We do not have mahi in house at all. Granted, it was loud in the main dining room, as we were packed last night. Again, I'm very sorry we let you down.

    Good food. Service needed some small work such as our appetizer came out one minuet before our food and with the small tables it was full. They also forgot to bring a spoon with the grits but luckily they were thick enough for a fork. It was a little loud for me because of the loud people in the place but i have to admit atleast they were laughing and having a good time

    The food and service were impeccable. My salmon dinner was the beat I’d had in a long time. It was very loud inside and too hot outside, so for old colleague friends getting together it was difficult to talk and hear each other. I was also a bit dismayed that our dinners came out at different times. I believe they should be brought out together.

    Not great. The server hardly stopped at our table throughout the whole visit and the food was subpar. Had to wait long periods of time between drinks because the server did not check on us. We ate half of our meals before she checked to see if we needed anything additional which we did. The food was bland or overly salty depending on what dish you had definitely not worth the price. Very disorganized hostess with a confused crowd around the front area.

Thanks so much for the great experience. This was our third visit to Reel Fish and we look forward to many more. It was definitely worth the 1 1/2 hour drive from The Villages.

    We enjoyed our bite 30 meals. I loved my swordfish but the sides were loaded with bacon. I wish it would have said that in the description. I do not eat meat Next time I will ask if the sides are vegetarian. I didn’t mention it to the waiter because it didn’t spoil our nice date night.

    Bar tender had an attitude. 1 appetizer came 20 Mins after the other 2. Main course was ok. Nothing special. Had to search for main ingredients- had a dinner salad and it was basically a bowl of lettuce with a piece of battered fish in it.
