the reel story.

From the Fish Camp Tradition

First established during the Depression era, fish camps are as much a part of Southern life as going to church. Simple, rustic “camp” eateries were set up along Southern coastal areas and riverbanks to provide workers and their families delicious, fuss-free fresh fish, and of course, hush puppies.

Authentic. Fresh. Delicious.

Reel Fish captures the spirit and authenticity of fish camps to deliver fresh, seasonal fish, with an emphasis on sustainably sourced varieties from the Southern waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Crave-worthy dishes are artfully prepared to warm the heart and nourish the soul. Occasional menu additions explore delicious fish and seafood sustainably sourced from waters further afield. And it’s all served with generous helpings of laid-back Southern hospitality.
