We enjoyed this restaurant! The staff was friendly and helpful. Great service! We wanted oysters and they were delicious! We also had steak frites, crab dip, mussels, and the skirt steak philly. They were all very good. We highly recommend and will return.

The waitress was so nice and friendly. The mofongo wasn’t as savory as I expected, but I’m used to Dominican mofongo. The Crabby Patty and grilled oysters were great!

The service, food and staff were excellent. Jesse, the bartender, along with the waitress (didnt catch her name) were great to our group of 5.

We went for brunch for my son’s birthday. Chose this for the oysters but loved it for everything else.

Can’t wait to go back.

First time back to Off the Hook in about a year, and it is not the same place I remember frequenting. Service was so slow ... we just ordered oysters, grilled calamari salad and fish and chips and it took more than an hour. Perhaps it was an off night.
However while the oysters were very fresh, they were not shucked so we had to pull them from the shell. This was not the case a year ago when I was a regular. The salad was fresh yet the calamari rings were inedible. I showed the server how I could not even break one in two by stretching it and she tried to convince me that "calamari is always tough" I am a big foodie and cook, and I know better. I requested she ask the chef to eat one and if he could I will pay for my dish. Needless to say it was taken off the bill.
Not sure if I will risk another Saturday night on this place although we may just come back for the fish and chips.

The food at Off The Hook was good. My wife ordered the salmon which was delicious and I had the fish tacos which were also pretty good. The prices were reasonable although I thought we'd get more shrimp in the shrimp cocktail. We also ordered a dozen oysters which were delicious but thought it was odd that they did not give you a horseradish unless you asked for it. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who enjoy Seafood

When I came in saying that I had a reservation for an outdoor table at 7:30pm he said it's first come first serve and there is nothing they can do about it. What about contacting the people who manage opentable or contacting the customers Even then they didn't have an inside table ready. The bartender was rude when explaining how it works. Its a reservation for a reason. The food and table service was good.

The menu for Father's Day was more expensive than expected and the service was very slow - had to ask for a basket of bread when the bottle of wine showed up 20 minutes before the oysters -- and it seemed like an annoyance to expect bread with a meal.

It’s a great place for friends to meet up. The rum selection is extensive. The $1 oysters for happy hour is great value. I have eaten here a few times and food is consistent and delicious. The portions are generous.

Our waitress must've been working by herself on a busy Friday nite (Good Friday where fish would be what would be popular) and this establishment did not have enough service. Food came warm not hot ( a table of 6 where 2 ordered boils and it was warm to cold in temperature.. waited almost an hour for plates to be cleared and the prospects of dessert coming in a timely fashion wasn't high. Been here before when it wasn't busy.... good then but a really long drawn out unpleasant experience when it is busy.

Our food was really excellent, I got the shrimp mofongo and my bf got the fried fish. The only downside was that the service was extremely slow, but I believe they were training a new waitress. I would give this place another chance bc the food was so good!

We don't go all the time but always enjoy ourselves when we do. Fresh seafood, great service and a relaxed atmosphere complemented by a full bar if you want a cocktail before dinner. My only complaint would be that the menu and is not extensive and...for the record, their online menu doesn't even tell that full story. If really have to stop in to this one to fully realize how good they are. Go once...you'll definitely go back. Food is delicious and service is great.

Nothing bad to say about this place. Our server Rina is very pleasant and sweet, we came for Brunch. Lobster and grits is amazing. The bloody Mary is on point, the raw oysters is sweet a d for the price of $1 each, can't beat that. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the service.
