Unrivaled seafood, fresh and delicious. I have gone every summer for at least 10 years and have never been disappointed. Small restaurant, they don't serve alcohol (it's BYO).

Excellent cooking in a casual byob spot. The fried tomatoes appetizer is dreamy. The fish and chips is one of the best ever. Great lobster bisque.

Hoopers never disappoints. Tonight we had the seafood fra diavolo and the seafood pasta (similar, but the fra diavolo has more kick to it). As always, the seafood is fresh and delicious. Our waitress Tammy did a great job as well. And you can't beat...More

Do you have gluten-free options

Response from Cajuneddie | Property representative |
Yes there are a few options for gluten free. Manhattan clam chowder. Any broiled seafoods,Any items on the menu breaded should be avoided. We have excellent Bbq ribs which would also be an option.

Hooper's is a casual 48 seat seafood restaurant attached to our fresh fish market. Friendly smiling faces, great seafood and a quaint nautically themed café await you when you chose to dine with us. A BYOB, we are open seasonally from March through September.
