Very disappointed in the food. Had a salad with steak on it It came with 3 small pieces. Had it once before the serving of steak was much more generous and appealing. Pork chop was dry and thin.served with a mushy dog food type gravy . Not sure what happened but will not be going back.

Hooks and Chops always provides a quality experience. We have become somewhat regular despite noticing the increase in prices with the summer menu. Most recently we’ve discovered that the hamburger is excellent, as are the short rib meatballs. Service is always both friendly and professional. We do love this restaurant.

The service and food at Hooks and Chops was spectacular. We had a birthday celebration and the waiter made it very special. He spent the time to explain the specials and some of the menu questions we had. I would defiantly recommend dining at Hooks and Chops.

This restaurant is a gem! It is located in the former Ruby Tuesday spot. It has been renovated and the decor is nice and the restaurant is clean. This was perfect place for us to do our celebrating. The food was outstanding. From appetizers to dinners to desserts, everyone loved it all. An extra special touch came from the manager, Christopher, who engaged our two granddaughters. He was funny and connected so well with the girls as well as the rest of us. It made for an even more enjoyable and special dinner. I have no doubt we’ll be dining here again and also no doubt the girls will be looking for Christopher again when we do!

My boyfriend and had dinner there last night. The services were excellent. The foods were great but it’s expensive for some folks. Overall, we enjoyed it.
We will come back to try their brunch.

Hooks and Chops was really great. Food was delicious, service amazing - a really great dinner to celebrate my birthday. And as is turned out our waitress, Gaby and I share the same birthday! She was a pleasure. Everyone from the hostess to our waitress and the bartender were so friendly. We ordered the surf and turf and it was delicious. The short rib meatball app was amazing. We ended our meal with my favorite - the mini doughnut holes in a bag thing. Yum! We will definitely go back.

Food was incredible, service can be better. Had a 6:45 reservation, not crowded inside, but still waited 15 minutes to be seated. They didn’t have the wine we wanted, and wanted an espresso after dinner and was told “you can’t have it the machine is broken”, but to make up for it they did buy us dessert and Zambuca. Beautiful atmosphere I would recommend

It was so nice to go to a nice restaurant with extensive Gluten Free items and staff knowledgeable about the necessity of Gluten Free for someone with Celiac. The staff was friendly & attentive. The food was delicious and this will definitely be a new favorite dining spot for us.

I have read many reviews about Hooks & Chops and I decided to try it out for myself on a Thursday for dinner. We arrived to a very loud band. If there is going to be live music, it doesn't need to be amplified to the degree that it was, and they should seriously consider getting a different band with more appealing music.

The decor in the restaurant is modern and nice. The tables were spaced appropriately for social distancing.

The wait staff were very friendly, however they weren't experienced at serving or serving wine.

The menu was nice and had many items that sounded interesting. I chose the Oysters Escobeche as my appetizer. It was delicious. I chose the Halibut as my entree. It was not delicious. It was not the freshest piece of halibut I have had in the last week, and it was overcooked. The sauce that came with it was strange. It wasn't flavorful and wasn't really useful, even though the halibut was overcooked and dry. The lobster potatoes were fine.

The desserts were okay.

My overall view is that this is a decent restaurant, which the area needs. Their ideas are good, however they fall a little short in execution. If they work on developing the staff and fine tuning their delivery, I'm sure they can be very successful.

Amazing!

So I had reservations tonight at a fairly new restaurant in Commack called Hooks 🪝 & Chops. From the minute we walked in we were constantly surrounded by the friendliest of staff. We were seated right away and introduced to our waiter Brandon who was so attentive and had the best personality. I fell in love with the decor and atmosphere. Nautical colors and wood planking on the walls….very welcoming. I can not say enough about the food. The chef goes above and beyond. For apps we had oysters, pork belly, lamb chop lollipops and braised short rib meatballs. I, my sister and brother in law ordered a halibut dish on a plank. The piece of fish sat on a bed of the best tasting spinach and potatoes with pieces of lobster. While my husband ordered the tomahawk steak. Dessert was insane! See some pics below. My husband and I said we have not had such good food in a long time and it has been a while since we have thoroughly enjoyed a dinner like the one we had tonight. We are already planning on when we are going back. Food/service/atmosphere all top notch! Kudos to the chef….he is one hell of a talent.

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary. It was our first time to the restaurant. It was absolutely perfect. From the moment we sat down to the moment I paid the bill was truly a wonderful experience. Our server, tall women on the fuller side- was sheer delight. She was attentive, engaging and knew her menu. Would highly recommend the restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

We sat outside with my sons and girlfriends. The experience was excellent from the time we met the hostess. I had the classic mussel pot that had the most delicious sauce. I also had chopped salad with shrimp, yum! But OMG the bag of donuts and dipping sauces were awesome. Others had everything from pasta to steaks and the dessert special, a deconstructed cannoli. They all loved everything!! A bit pricey but worth it!!

Once again we were pleasantly greeted and served at Hooks & Chops. Erin is a consummate manager checking with all of patrons to assure that their guests are satisfied. It was a 60th birthday celebration and everyone throughly enjoyed their entire meal, the chef is very talented in flavor and presentation. The dessert platter was over the top in presentation and taste. You can’t go wrong when booking an evening at Hooks & Chops we will definitely be returning soon.

Beautifully redone; can’t believe used to be Ruby Tuesdays. Didn’t appreciate $16 on bill for two bottles water. Food generally good, but inexplicably chef seems to have odd affinity for bbq sauce? On crab begniets, on my steak, and even in cocktail sauce. Convenient location, nice not having to figure out parking in Huntington.

Great food and we had an outstanding waiter. The band was way too loud. Even at the end of the restaurant, My wife and I couldn’t have a conversation. I’d come back but I think on a weekday night that doesn’t have a live band
