Reviews of Reel Cafe

Its been awhile, but I finally went to a restaurant and ordered Chicken Marsala. This used to be my method of measuring one restaurant against another, and somehow, I think I got burned out on this seemingly simple dish. I resisted the urge to order it last night at Caffé Phoenix, but I shall go back and report on how they compare to the Chicken Marsala I just had at The Reel Café, located on the corners of Dock and Front Street in Wilmington, NC, which is one of those things that you WISH would make you have a Phantom Poop.
But lets start off with what I ate first, which was the Guinness Beef Stew. Or shall I say Campbells Thick and Chunky. There may have been a tablespoon of Guinness mixed in, but I wasnt sure.
So anyway, I really, really love mushrooms. Like a hobbit loves mushrooms. And second breakfast. I dont know how this happened, since theyre so weird and, well, fungified, but I love them. So I say, Lets see if we get a variety of mushrooms, or if were gonna get plain button mushrooms. I think I got ONE plain button mushroom, thinly sliced, to make me think I had more than one mushroom. Doused in about a quarter cup of Marsala sauce. Im pretty sure it came out of a package. Im not sure there was any Marsala wine in the sauce at all. They didnt even cheat and use Sherry. I should have used the $4 I spent to upgrade from Grilled Chicken to Chicken Marsala to instead buy another margarita, because you cant mess those up. And when the Chicken Marsala revisted me for the next twelve hours, I could have at least blamed it on the tequila.
Good food, not bad prices
The blackened salmon with fettucini alfredo was the chef's special and was excellent! Perhaps my best dining experience ever! It ws perhaps a bit loud due to sports TV but the dining made up for even that. Highly recommend visiting them!
was served refried fries last two times visited...
Food tastes as if the ingredients were extremely old and freezer burned. Will not return!!!
White Front Breakfast House
Never, ever try to call in an order. They leave you holding an unacceptable amount of time. While on hold I could hear them laughing and joking abou...
Addicted To the Bean
Awful coffee miserable staff - gross....
Hot Pink Cake Stand
The worst customer service I have encountered, anywhere.
If I could rate Hot Pink Cake Stand less than one star, I would.
