The 'Reel' life: Seafood restaurant making waves in 

downtown Woodstock




A new seafood restaurant is hoping to make a big splash in downtown Woodstock when it opens on Main Street in mid-April.

The owners of Reel Seafood hope to hook customers by bringing fresh fish with a quality dining experience to downtown Woodstock.

David Silverman owns and operates Reel Seafood with his wife, Karen, who have both worked in the restaurant and customer service industries for decades.

With dishes ranging from the expected to the extraordinary, Silverman said he’s excited to offer Woodstock an amazing seafood restaurant.

“From the quality of the foods, to the setting of the restaurant, to the service you receive,” Silverman said, “we hope to create in downtown Woodstock a real dining experience.”

Silverman has almost three decades of experience in the restaurant business, with more than a decade as an executive chef, and said Reel Seafood will be unlike any other restaurant in the downtown area.

“It’s a fresh fish, fresh seafood concept … never frozen or flash-frozen on the boat,” he said. “It’s sourced everywhere from Hawaii to Cape Cod. Local product comes from the Outer Banks and the Carolinas, to local Georgia trout, to Gulf products.”

He said the restaurant will bring in fresh seafood daily and feature seafood dishes from cuisines across the world.

“Your staples are like crab cake, mussels, calamari, tuna tartare, shrimp and grits, local things that people expect to go out to eat for — with some spin on some traditional things,” he said. “We’ll introduce some international flavors — some Asian applications and Cajun and French, things like that.”

Silverman said they chose the name Reel Seafood as a play on words — representing both a fishing reel, and a “real food and dining experience.”

“I created that name almost two years ago in my head, before I even had the finances to be able to do a restaurant on my own,” he said.

The interior is decorated in a blue, water-like theme, and Silverman said he wanted customers to feel like they were near the ocean, or “sitting in an aquarium.”

Silverman and his wife live in Woodstock, and he said he’s been dreaming of opening up a restaurant downtown for years.

“I’m a chef by trade,” he said. “I’ve always worked in Buckhead, Midtown, downtown … we moved out to Woodstock eight years ago, and since moving out to Woodstock, I’ve just loved the area. We live in Towne Lake. We love the whole area. We love the community and I love the whole downtown area.”

He said “The minute we saw something available in Woodstock, we jumped at the chance.”

“This area is very sought-after,” he said. “We got one of the last retail spaces available.”

Housed in the building that was previously both a furniture store and the Woodstock Art and Glass shop, Silverman said the retail space had to be “completely built out.”

Silverman said he brings the chef experience to the table, while his wife brings experienced customer-service to the business.

“My wife is in hospitality. She brings high-end service and attention to detail and quality service,” he said. “We’re interested in creating a dining experience; we’re not just trying to sell a place to eat.”

Silverman expects dishes to range from about $15 to $25, on average and said the restaurant hours are still being worked out, but he expects to open at about 11 a.m. and stay open until about 11 p.m. most nights.
