The quality of the food was okay and not worth the price. Waiter failed to mention Happy Hour drink specials. Dining area is small and cramped.

The service and the food were good, borderline great. The menu descriptions of the items needed explanation for me but the waiter was happy to describe the ingredients and preparation. I had salmon from the "fresh fish board" with a "set" of "crispy pecorino polenta" and was satisfied with my choice. The restaurant is on the main drag and has easy access and parking. There was a musician entertaining and lots of wall TVs - almost overload but we secured a booth away from the fray.

First visit to Hooked. Very glad we tried it. Cozy, warm atmosphere. Staff, especially Clark, very friendly, helpful, and professional. 25 cent wings were spicy, tender, and crisp with great homemade bleu cheese sauce. Clark recommended the cioppino, and he was right. Great seafood blend in a hearty tomato base with a toasted crostini on the side. Could have used a straw to get up all the juicy goodness. Bumbleberry pie was tart, sweet, melt in your mouth. Can't wait to return to this quaint, classy restaurant. Congratulations to all on a job very well done.

We had the cioppino. Fantastic. Would come back for sure. Nice atmosphere. A busy place but he only had about a 15-minute wait.

We come every year for the scallops and grits dish! You would think you are eating mashed potatoes because the grits are so smooth. Poblano corn/bacon broth and seared scallops over cheddar grits....outstanding. We tried the broccoli salad for something different, and it was quite good. Everything is cooked to perfection! The service was also great; shout out to Sean upstairs. Super attentive to our needs and totally sold us on the dessert menu. French toast bread pudding with a maple glaze and some delicious ice cream....yum. Oh and on Wednesday’s during the fall/winter season, almost all the entrees are $15. Great deal! Will be back again next year!
