    If someone in your party doesn't care for fish, there are too few other options for them to consider. Would go elsewhere.

    The food and service was fabulous BUT the music was uncomfortably loud. So loud that even though everything else was terrific, we might not be able to eat there again if the band is playing.

    We heard this was owned by Lucia's and thought we would be blown away by their offerings. Wanted a nice, calm end of week dinner. Walked in to a very loud room(live music). This eliminated any conversation. My wife enjoyed her meal & wine. The app was very good. I opted for a fish fry, again, thinking it would be wonderful. It was not on par with local restaurants. Coating seemed under cooked, fish was mushy not flaky. Waitress was pleasant, but seemed frazzled. Only two servers for the room. Too expensive for a second go...

    Very rarely do wife and I get to enjoy an evening out without the kids. We are seafood foodies and Hooked failed to meet our expectations. The biggest factor in our disappointment was the noise level, as live music (which was on the other side of the dining room) was blasting far too loud for us to enjoy a conversation with each other without shouting across the table. For being a seafood restaurant we expected more unique seafood options on the menu. The calamari and salmon tasted fine but lacked a dynamic flavor profile or wow-factor that would justify their price points or inspire us to return.

    Well I went to the wrong site to look at the menu aaa expecting something different for sure only 1 type of oyster so no selection there and we ordered something very basic parmesan fries are a dud to say the least since all they do is sprinkle Parmesan on them for the money I can’t complain but I won’t be going back

    We used to be regulars, but things begin to change so we stopped going for a few months. Last night, the place returned to the way we experienced it before, including the live music on Friday night and we will be returning again frequently. One important thing is that the service has always been the absolute best, regardless of what else was going on.

    Great little breakfast place. Food was really good and the servers were so nice! They broke an egg on one of my husbands plate, and the cook came out to apologize and gave him another one. We didn’t think it was a big deal at all, so nice of them. I would recommend this place.

    When I booked this reservation on Open Table, I was shown one-time slot as an opening. Therefore, the inference was the restaurant would be packed. When we arrived for our 2:30pm reservation there were two other tables being used. That was it. It was very clear that tables were available earlier on Mother's Day. This is important given the fact that the buffet food had been "sitting" in warming trays for some time. Not all food choices were that warm. If I had known, I would have made an earlier reservation which likely would have resulted in having better tasting food.

    Staff seemed disorganized and flustered. No one came to us for quite a while after we were seated. Drinks ordered finally then took a while to arrive and waitress forgot one of them. Good was just ok. Some was not hot and we went to buffet shortly after food was brought out.

    We had a great meal at Hooked! We ordered the mussels to start which were prepared in a white wine sauce instead of the spicy tomatoe sauce. It was fabulous! For entrees I had the fish fry (a HUGE and delicious portion) with French fries and a yummy red cabbage coleslaw. Hubby had the salmon which was prepared perfectly to his specifications. Also, the asparagus was done al dente and had great flavor. Definitely worth a try!

    Calamari was extremely salty and drinks were strong at the top but nothing but seltzer once you got through the first couple of sips of liquor they only poured at the top. Waitress would disappear for long periods of time which caused us not to order different drinks. We were not offered a bread basket like all the other tables around us. Service, appetizers and drinks left a lot to be desired... Luckily, the main course saved the evening. I had the salmon entree with a lobster tail on the side. Unfortunately the entree alone won't make me go back.
