There's something about seafood that just hits different. Sure, the standard for a dinner out is burgers or maybe Italian, but seafood dinners and lunches are more special, because they're more unique, and most likely, more expensive.

It's always exciting when a new restaurant opens, but more eye-opening when it's a seafood restaurant. What about a seafood restaurant and bar?

That's exactly what's about to open in Western New York.

According to their Facebook page, Hook & Reel Cajun Seafood & Bar is about to open a new location in Blasdell.

The new location will be on McKinley Pkwy, at the old Ruby Tuesday building; down the road from the McKinley Mall and Wegmans.

Hook & Reel specializes in fried fish, along with seafood pasts dishes and oysters. They also serve up dishes like Po Boy sandwiches and seafood boils.

It's also a bar, featuring draft beers, cocktails and more.

Hook & Reel is a franchised restaurant chain, who has locations all around the country. The company started in Maryland in 2013 and is quickly becoming one of the most popular new restaurant chains in America.

Buffalo is a great place for food, especially local food, but we don't have too many seafood or Cajun food spots, so this will be hugely popular for those in the southtowns.

I'll definitely try out this place. I love seafood and this looks like a blast for seafood lovers, and a great place to have some drinks.
