Hook & Vine
Kevin and Monica Phillips were dreaming of a place that they could share their love of food and drinks with the community. With many years in the industry, they started planning their dream restaurant. They found the perfect place near the Chesapeake Bay in North Beach, Maryland.
The family-oriented atmosphere and warm welcome will be a fun and delicious destination for everyone. Who doesn't love a home away from home?
Southern coastal cuisine with a focus on fresh seafood, bacon, bourbon, and wine. Menu inspired by the community - choose a new favorite dish each visit. Local beer on tap; delicious cocktails; and not your average wine list. Have a favorite wine or drink - let us know.
I'm a bit reluctant to let people in on the secret of this great restaurant! Everything we've ordered (this visit and every other) has been so delicious. Last night, it was sirloin for me, scallops for the hubby, and carrot cake to share. Delish.
The place is cozy and casual, but with a touch of upscale. It's nice for date night or celebration. It's small, and popular - we've had better luck when we've made a reservation (especially on the weekends) so we don't have a wait. The staff is friendly, and attentive enough without being underfoot. Prices are reasonable.
Once again great food and drinks. All entrees arrived timely and cooked well
Make sure you get an experienced waiter/waitress. Unfortunately, Jordan was slow on checking on us about getting our main course entrees (so slow the head chef came to our table to ask if we were only getting appetizers). Then AFTER the bill was paid AND she received her 20% tip...she comes back to the table and says..."I forgot to add your desserts onto the bill! You still OWE $22.00". In my opinion, experienced waiter/waitress would have gone to the manager and stated the bill was already based on a mistake by HER. Other than that incident...the entire meal was FANTASTIC!!! We can't wait until the next time!!!
I really like this place, the crabcakes are Great. The only thing I would change is the noise level, when there is a loud crowd, it’s quite loud . So We don’t go there if it’s just my husband and I wanting a quieter night.
We very much enjoy Hook however, if you are close to the bar area, it is extremely noisy. It is difficult to have a conversation and hear everyone.
Great girls afternoon dinner. Our server, Kat, was great! Pork Chops were great. Seafood Platter was great. That catfish though! YUMMY. Drinks were great! Desserts were great. We sat on the porch. Beautiful meal, on a beautiful day!
My first time at Hook however never took away from the stellar service we received -- made the evening that much more enjoyable.
Hook and Vine is always a solid place to dine. The drink and food menus are creative. The service is good and the space is lovely.
Extensive cocktail list
Hook & Vine was a nice little place, very cozy and nice ambience. Enjoyed a little bit of Baltimore’s Hon vibe with our waitress who was fun to talk with. Nice variety on the menu which was available all day, versus separate lunch/dinner selection. The only thing that prevented me from giving the food 5 stars was the temperature. We had a noon reservation and had the place to ourselves so was a bit surprised that the Shrimp & Grits entree was just barely warm. The Jambalaya had enough “heat” to make up for the temperature and my son and husband thoroughly enjoyed it. And the lobster ravioli had nice big chunks of lobster in it. The deviled egg appetizer was served way to cold which took a little from the flavor.
Love this little gem in the heart of North Beach! Chef Charles presents a delicious and creative menu for all tastes, and Monica and team deliver terrific service and great recommendations. Love the approachable wine and cocktail list too!
Very nice restaurant. Tables are a little close so it's hard to have a private conversation. Food was excellent.
Food was very good. Service was very good as well. Met the owner who have us special attention for mu wife's birthday. When my wife advised her meal was too spicy for he to eat- she took it off the bill. Also gave us a free piece of cheese cake. Ambiance was very nice and relaxed. We will definitely return.
Great spot! We enjoyed our lunch very much and will surely return!
Porch was a nice setting. Cocktails were quite good...purple haze and jack berry lemonade. Main dishes were very good (carb cakes sandwich and halibut) but all the Sides were unremarkable.
Wonderful, courteous service. The menu is varied without being overwhelming & the food is excellent!
Great food and wonderful atmosphere. A perfect Friday night date! Delicious food. Loved the summer cocktails! Highly recommend.
I found the food to be quite good. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly. The esparagus was also grilled to perfection, not overcooked as is a common issue in restaurants. The creole sauce was complex, flavorful, and not overly salty. My guest had the crab cake which was fantastic. A solid amount of crab with just enough binder to home it together...a proper Maryland crabcake. The key lime pie was also fantastic. It's clear they have someone skilled running the kitchen. The wait staff however was another story. Although friendly, they were quite lacking in floor management. They use handheld devices to take your order, which although one might think is a good thing to keep things orderly and timely, it was actually a detractor to me. Instead of connecting with guests, the servers have their faces buried in the handheld the entire time and are essentially just recording orders. Servers are the gateway to the kitchen. They should be knowledgeable about the food so that they can help the guest choose something they will more likely enjoy, which will boost the positive experience of customers for the restaurant. It doesn't require fine dining waitsaff, but it felt disjointed, like eating at a fine restaurant with diner quality waitsaff. Overall though a great restaurant with delicious food. I would definitely recommend.
Having my Birthday Celebration there after the jets ski party, this was THE best recommended place to dine. The food was 10 Stars, yes 10 Stars... Our waiter was so patience and served each of us and followed up to ensure everything was fine.. I highly recommend this nice cozy restaurant to anyone. Great appetizers, food and drinks
the jewel of NB continues to rise as a high tide
best grouper meal I have had in 50 years ago on the west coast of FL
Knowing Hook & Vine is a small, popular location we made reservations. We arrived on time and were seated in minutes. The place was hopping so, was a bit loud but not obnoxiously so. The weather was hot and humid and that did seem to affect the temperature inside, too. Our server, Monica, was AMAZING. Super friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and very accommodating. The handmade drinks were unique and enjoyable. The chicken piccata was on point. We will definitely be back.
It seemed as if the restaurant had just opened. Tons of confusion, cold food, poor service
Great staff and food.
Great place. Good food and cocktails. Would've given 5 stars but felt a little rushed to order dessert even when I was still eating my entree! Would definitely return!
Great service and food, very nice ambiance. It can get a little loud at times, but I really enjoyed being there. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful!
I was there for lunch with 2 friends and we dined on the porch. That is why I said the noise was moderate. Motorcycles kept going by....not Hook and Vine's fault! The food was very good and it has a very nautical appeal inside. Very nice!
The food, the service and the owner were all amazing! We went two nights in a row!
It was fabulous. The food and the service was excellent!
Did not matter that we had reservations ons. We had to wait 45 minutes
This is my to go spot but I mostly sit at the bar. Table service is way too slow. Food takes forever to arrive. Even though, I made a reservation for 8:45 pm, my two little ones and I waited 20 more minutes to be sited. I ordered two kids burgers which arrived at 9:50 pm. Sliders really don't take THAT long to be cooked.
This isn't the first time. Food takes way too long to be prepared.
I had the halibut and it was fresh, tasty and perfectly broiled. My husband and grandson raved about their burgers: one a regular with cheese burger and the other the Hook and Vine burger.
Chef went out of his way to accommodate me with sliced red/green peppers for the crab dip as I’m gluten-free and couldn’t eat the bread that accompanied the dip. The dip itself was very creamy and had large pieces of crab...yum!
Food was wonderful. They forgot my daughters food-(kitchen issue), but other than that it was a great meal. Well priced also.
Some of the best wings I've ever had! The lemon pepper wings were great, my only complaint is that it took about 10 minutes for my waiter to greet me as a solo diner.
our 95 yr old mother from Baltimore loved the lobster roll and complimented Charles
Our favorite place to eat in Southern Maryland! The food and drinks are amazing.
Had the Jumbalaya. Fair. Nice location and service was good. Had Mojito for cocktail and it wasn’t good.
The crab cakes are top notch. And the bread pudding selections are great too. We’ve dined here several times and each has been enjoyable. Will be back again!
Always a great to bring people from out of town.
Service was great, food prepared to perfection, good wine selection. A must to try..... you'll get " hooked*!
A quaint place to enjoy a great meal! Cream of Crab soup was some of the best! Great, friendly service and food was fantastic!!! Got a burger and friend got fish tacos! Highly recommend!!!
