You can rent everything you need to fish off the pier. Lots of characters to complete the ambience. Nearby bar serves great food. Watch the birds troll for handouts.

We don't fish but we love to walk along a pier and hope to catch a glimpse of dolphins and manatees and other sea life. One day while just walking the pier, we got lucky and got to see a manatee swim under the pier! The food was decent - it's your typical seafood joint - but enjoying lunch with... More

The best part about this place was that it was walking distance from our house. The food was very good and the service was lightening fast.

If delicious fresh fish and Florida fishhouse atmosphere is what you are looking for, you have found the place. Nothing fancy, perky waitresses, excellent food at reasonable prices. Go early, line can be long during the season. Best bet is always the fresh caught specials, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Redfish, etc.

We came to Rod & Reel Pier because it seemed a unique place to visit. We just stopped in for a snack, and ended up skipping the wait and just ate around the downstairs bar. We only had grouper fingers and the kids shared a bowl of clam chowder. The fish didn't seem fresh, which is weird with this place... More

Food was great as always. Casual attire is fine but some people dress up in the evening, but not necessary. We sat outside maybe around 8pm. and I was a bit chilly. Service was good. We all enjoyed our meals and the coffee was delicious!

We have been coming here for years. It is our go to for fishing, cheap beer and best fish and chips on the island. The Grouper Reuben and Grouper sandwiches are our favorites. The staff is alway so friendly and very sufficient. The views are so peaceful and relaxing.

We went down for lunch after we rode the C-Ponies in the bay. Awesome view on the water. Reasonable prices. Even if the prices were higher it would still be worth it for the view. Go!

The first time I came here was in 2007 and I fell in love with this place. It was a really fun place with good food and good prices in a nice atmosphere. Every time I have been to Florida I have to come here. But I guess today was the last time. The food is only average and absolutely... More

Our party of 10 arrived around 6pm on a Tuesday night expecting at least a 30 minute wait. We were seated in less than 5 minutes (we would have been fine for longer wait so we could explore the pier). Our kids loved the fried shrimp though they wished there were a few more on their plate. Other children at... More
