Service was very slow and the place was empty. Our chicken was blackened and hard to eat. The beef was WELL done and the waitress was a bit rude.

Hoaks is a family staple in the Town of Hamburg. Great little place right on the water with seafood and other favorites. Always pleasant service and great food. Friday and Saturdays can get quite backed up during summer so plan accordingly.
