Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On holiday, getting Lobster & Crab from Reilly's. Mail Order from this summer (20% off 1st order), that's what we will use frequently. Pre-Ordered 6 king size Male Lobsters, 1kg crab claws, couple of dressed crabs on impulse. Fiona (Richards wife) was lovely. Lobsters cooked...an hour before collection. Magnificient, enjoying with salad, & Presecco later, freezing what we don't eat. £30kg fresh out of the sea, as good as money can buy.More

Been going once or twice a year and sometimes been caught out with usually the crab being sold out before I arrive (so lobster plugs the gap very nicely): this time, as I was travelling around Fife by bus, I contacted them first before they...opened and they very kindly agreed to put some back for me as I knew with timings I’d be there around 14:00. You can imagine my delight as when I arrived, I noted the ‘crab rolls sold out’ sign, but a quick check revealed my order all bagged-up and waiting for me! Oh happy, happy day! I enjoyed eating them overlooking the sea & harbour from a bench on the terrace - thank you!More

Outstanding. Fresh lobster rolls for just 8 quid, stuffed with lobster meat and lobster sauce. Fresh lobsters are 30 pounds per kg, they even cook them for you. You can eat at the pick nick area or take it home. Amazing. totally going back!

Located right at the Crail harbour, small operation and very popular. Get there early. At noon all the crab was gone so I had a lobster roll. £8 is a good price given it’s lobster and it came in a lovely sauce. You can eat...on picnic tables or sit on the harbour walls. Really simple and tasty.More

Fresh seafood cooked to order. Taste the difference. Great value. Go early as sells out fast and catch is weather dependent

Absolutely amazing place🖤🥰 I have visited today with my 7 years old son on a wee Sunday road trip into the unknown… the lady who served us was an absolute sweetheart and so helpful and kind. Lobster was cooked beautifully and served with all the...necessary tools to get the best out of it (picks and claw crackers and lime juice) dressed crab that i have never had before was to die for ! Very reasonably priced too. Yet another wee gem of a place. Left stuffed and most happyMore

We were staying in Crail for a couple of days, and - based on reviews on here - popped to Reillys for a bite to eat at lunchtime. Lovely service, and some nice seating options around the harbour. We had a lobster roll and a...dressed crab - both delicious. Would recommend checking out the tide times before you go, it's nicer when the tide's in!More

Came here with friends and certainly did not disappoint. What a meal. Between us, we sampled the lobster rolls, crab rolls and dressed crab. Absolutely amazing. The lobster was succulent and extremely fresh. There are benches for you to sit around beside the harbour, just...be careful of the seagulls though. Great lunch!More

Fantastic little place down on the harbour, fresh selection of Lobster to choose from straight from the water into the pot. Plenty of seats around the harbour and you get a tray with lemon, salt and pepper. The guys are really friendly, highly recommended 👌...👍More

Came across an old photo of myself brother & sister beaming in front of the hut with a crab. So to come back over 30 years later to see the hut still here was awesome. I had a lobster roll and hubby had a lobster...which we both thoroughly enjoyed. It was a dry sunny day so managed to grab a picnic bench, a cheeky wee red wine topped it offMore

If you happen to be in the East Neuk of Fife don’t miss this. We were early for opening so sat on the harbour watching the fishing boats landing their catch. From the boat to the shed .. you won’t get fresher than that !!!!...Lobster was wonderful on its own but we returned another day armed with salad and fresh bread …. Thoroughly recommended if you like lobster or crab fresh from the sea.More
