The restaurant is very pretty. Looks like it would be a great seafood place. The food did not deliver what was on the menu. The Roasted corn jalapeño soup was delicicius but without a trace of heat from the jalapeno . The kale salad was nice but the additions were almost nonexistent.T he poached pear was just a bite on...

This is one of my favorite restaurants but it is usually too crowded during the summer season. Their off season specials are great. Half price apps for Happy Hour along with various dinner specials during the week. I went on a Tuesday evening for the 1/2 price fish entrees. I enjoyed a $4 bowl of crab bisque and an $11.50...

We visited Hooked 2 weeks ago for their Thursday night specials. The shrimp and fish tacos are wonderful. The burgers are also very good. I have never been displeased with a meal there and we also frequent the other Hooked restaurants in Fenwick, Bethany, and Rehobeth. I especially love the fact that their food is fresh and local. I live... More

This restaurant has been on my list to visit for a while and unfortunately just about everything possible that could go wrong did. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait only to be told it would be an hour after waiting for 35 minutes. Our server was very inattentive and could not be bothered. When we told... More

Visited Hooked for lunch on 2/5/17. This was our first time there, but like its sister restaurant, “Just Hooked”, it won’t be our last. The service was fast and efficient. It was very clean and most items were half price. Well, what could go wrong? Absolutely nothing. The food was wonderful, tasty, and nice portions. I loved the kale salad... More

My husband and I ate at Hooked last summer and we LOVED the food! It is currently our #1 place to eat in Ocean City. We had a slight issue when purchasing a gift card but as soon as I spoke to the manager, it was immediately taken care of. The food is top notch and they value their customers.

Every time I've been the food has been amazing and I've never been disappointed. Today I was distraught after finding out they no longer made their pesto fries. I feel as if they made the restaurant stand out, that they can take ordinary menu items, change them a bit and make them great.

We were looking for a place with good food that wasn't a chain for lunch. In a resort town in the off-season this can be a challenge. Looking on Trip Advisor, we came across Hooked. We weren't disappointed. It's easy to find, located right on the the main drag (Coastal Highway). While there was some parking in front (fine for... More

They have a nice menu, good specials, and a just ok atmosphere. We had dinner upstairs and lunch one day at the high tops in the bar. We enjoyed the food, the crab soup was very good but unfortunately was served not hot. Yes, we could have asked to have it warmed but that's not something anyone should have to... More
