    Celebrated my husband’s birthday with friends. Our server, Kaytlan, was awesome. She made the dining experience very nice and enjoyable. All of our dishes were good except the fried shrimp and oysters. We will get grilled or broiled in the future.

    Wonderful dinner, we shared a dozen oysters which were fresh and delicious. I got a Caesar salad and added calamari, which was outstanding and enormous! The calamari was perfectly cooked and the salad was dressed perfectly (not excessive dressing) which I was incredibly grateful for. My date got a side Caesar, scallops & mashed potatoes, opting out of the second side. Report on the scallops was good, but not fabulous. I think the desire was for them to be more seared. We got the tiramisu cake, also gigantic, and delicious! My friends all got oysters too and loved them. One also ordered the mussels and let me try - I will definitely order myself next time; they were fabulous. Overall service was fantastic. Everyone was friendly, fast, with helpful tips when asked about ordering recommendations. They also kept my water full, hooray! I look forward to our next visit.

    Great food. I ordered the shrimp and scallops. I always judge a seafood restaurant by its scallops and they tasted very fresh and were tender and tasty. Good sized portions. Sides were good too. Wine list could use some improvement but not bad. We’ll be back again!

    The first 3 beers I tried to order that were on the menu they no longer carried, then redo the menu or cross them out. Then when we ordered the fresh Peel'n eat shrimp they had been made many hours early and almost frozen and they couldn't warm them up. Lastly, when the bill came they charged us full price for the shrimp, even though on their Open Table said it was 1/2 price Mon-Fri 4:30-6:30. It might be a long time before we are back.

    We saw the Restaurant on the food channel. So after Church Sunday morning we had decided to go. It was 37 miles from us, but well worth the drive. Service was outstanding, food was worth many trips to come. We were introduced to both owners and all the wait staff. We were even treated with a free dessert. Love everything about this Restaurant.😍

    We dined here for Valentine’s Day and it was also our first time in the restaurant. The ambiance is really cute and everyone on staff including the managers were super nice and hospitable. I wasn’t overly impressed with the food, though. I’m not sure if it was just strain put on the kitchen because the restaurant was so slammed or what so I will have to go back another time to be sure. The crispy brussel sprouts were awesome! My husband really enjoyed his grouper special. I was a little disappointed in my surf and turf. It came with a fried lobster tail which was kind of burned so I peeled off the breading (wish it wasn’t fried at all). They were out of the filet mignon so they communicated this and offered to substitute with a ribeye. It was not a great cut of meat...tons of fat...like more than normal. All in all, absolutely wonderful staff, great ambiance, mediocre food, but a lovely Valentine’s dinner date.

    Hook Line & SchoonerResponded on February 21, 2020Thank you for taking time out to provide feedback to us. We're so sorry that you didn't enjoy the surf and turf. We'll be sure to let the kitchen staff know so they can share that information with our vendor. It's wonderful to know that you were pleased with our staff. We want you to feel at home when you dine with us so when you return, please be sure to ask for one of the owners or a manager, and we'll be sure to make it up to you. Thanks again for choosing HLS.

    Ordered stuffed lobster tail and it was SO tiny. Not worth the money at all. Potatoes and spinach delicious. Fried shrimp was great. Beware their cocktail sauce is very spicy and they gave no alternative. Desserts are fabulous and over the top!

    Hook Line & SchoonerResponded on February 21, 2020We appreciate your feeback and we want you to have an outstanding experience when you dine with us. Whenever you need to know about our ingredients, or if you are unhappy with anything at HLS, please don't hesitate to let us know. Our staff would have been able to tell you what is in our sauces because they're made here fresh every day without any additives or chemicals. We are always willing to correct or replace anything you might be unhappy with. If we don't know, we can't fix it.

    Horrible experience. Waitress was absolutely not attentive. The food was good but not exceptional although the manager/ owner was very professional and tried to make up for the lack luster service our table was receiving. But damage was already done. Our food came out all at different times. We had to ask for everything, napkins, drink refills, etc. The service was just awful. My family was in town for my brothers 50th and I suggested this place out of all the other wonderful restaurants in Atlanta area. I felt very embarrassed that I suggested this place. Never coming back...

    Very pleasant, small-ish restaurant/tavern with a broad and well balanced menu. Noisy enough to have table conversations without being overheard, while still able to be heard among the table guests. Excellent specials, dedicated servers, delicious food and an all-around good time place. We'll make return trips after this first experience at HL&S.

    Waiters were very scattered and rushed. Clearly being busy is part of the reality but there should be a certain level of attentiveness for each guest. I was cut off while speaking multiple times by my waiter, who kept running to others tables. I didn’t feel like service was important to him. My dishes were dirty, and I even asked another waiter about them, and she was rude. Waiter also took extensive time between checking on us. I regret dining in, and next time I’ll definitely get our food to go.

    I've been to this restaurant before & remember the food being better than it was today. The lobster bisque was bland and the lobster roll didn't have alot of flavor or enough substance to leave a good impression. The drawn butter had absolutely no flavor, LITERALLY NO TASTE. For butter to not have taste is an oxymoron, particularly in the South where we celebrate flavorful fat. This meal was truly forgettable.
