The Reel Seafood restaurant was owner operated for years. The place was fabulous. Sadly, the owner retired and turned ownership over to the current group who are in over their heads and drowning. The meal was served after a long, long wait. The fish was inedible. It was dry, tasteless and overlooked. Even the vegetable sides were tasteless. There was... More

Reel Seafood Company is an excellent restaurant for fresh seafood. I was quite impressed with their raw bar and lobster. I will surely eat there again on my next stay in Albany.

Excellent service, great view, nice atmoshpere. Food was very good and appropriately priced. Large servings, very fresh seafood. Little noisy, hard for business conversations, but couples dinner, would have been fine. Good value, good food, great service.

Went with my family in December for a Sunday brunch. Started off fine. Menu looked great. But after an hour of waiting for food, the waiter brought out half of it wrong or missing. My father got French toast that was literally just cold toast. Took awhile to get the check too after all that waiting. Never going back.

For seafood in Albany this is one of the best if not the best. Very upscale yet not overly priced and family friendly. Easy to find on Wold Rd.

Went here for dinner on Saturday night, because I heard that the food was fresh and service was very good. We had the little neck clams, which were delicious. I had the lobster Mac&Cheese, which was excellent. My partner had the stuffed haddock with crabmeat stuffing, which he said was fair. The stuffing he stated did not have real crabmeat... More

This newly renovated restaurant is exceptional in every way. The decor includes three large fish tanks which separate the 'tavern-like part' from the elegant dining area that has booths, tables, and a central banquette arrangement of back to back seating areas. The blue recessed ceiling lighting reflects off the silver hanging chandelier-like ornaments. The raw bar in a large ice... More
