The food here is good, nothing exceptional but very reasonably priced and pretty tasty. The view is amazing. Service is good too. Fishing from the pier after dinner is fun also. Sure we will return next year.

It's a small restaurant located at the end of a fishing pier. The pier itself can be crowded with fishers, but you can't beat the view. You can see Egmont Key, the Skyway Bridge, and most days you can see lots of dolphins. Moderately priced food which is hit or miss as far as taste/quality, but you just can't beat the view.

We have been here for both breakfast and dinner, the food is really fresh and tasty. There is is specials board each evening and the setting even though basic it's awesome being able to look out over the ocean.
We read previous reviews and in our visits , of which there have been several, we have the staff to be courteous if somewhat rushed.
It's not a place to sit and linger but there is plenty of setting on the pier if you want to hang around.
Wd tried grouper, shrimp and scallops and the breakfast French Toast and Eggs and ham all of which were awesome.

We will definitely be back next time we visit AMI

The Rod and Reel had a fire recently so we did not even know if they would be open this Memorial weekend but they were. The food was good and the service was good also. We only eat breakfast here so that's all I can comment about but other family comes here for lunch and they also enjoyed their food. I would definitely give them a try but be patient as the restaurant is small and they fill up fast. While waiting it is not unheard of to see manatee in the waters around the dock. This last time there were 2 while we waited to go in and 3 on our way out.

The food was very good but the place is very small would not recommend for a large group. The service was slow and just ok. We really enjoyed watching them fish below us!! Over all a nice experience.
