Seafood
Off the Hook was established in 2014 in the heart of the Great Bridge area of Chesapeake, VA. Owners Derrick & Jennifer Carpinelli saw the need for a fresh seafood restaurant in the area and aimed to fill it. Off the Hook has been an overnight success with the community embracing its polished casual atmosphere and more over Off the Hook's desire to work with local businesses and family owned wineries. The Carpinelli's hired award winning Chef Stephen Gellas as it's operations manager and Chef Mary Prader as its Executive Chef, together these two have accomplished more than many restaurants twice the age of Off the Hook. If you are looking for quality food, Off the Hook is a must eat ! They offer a large seafood menu, a raw bar featuring the freshest of oysters, shrimp and clams and also for the land lovers, prime cut meats. Don't miss out on the delicious fare offered at Off the Hook Seafood !

It was so cold in the restaurant that we had to keep our coats on. The entree was cold and the shrimp was not cooked enough. The server did have one of our entrees removed from our bill. We will not return. This was our anniversary dinner!

Ashley was amazing! We didn’t have to wait for refills, and she wasn’t on top of us to get our order in. Timing and friendliness were on point! We will request her again when we return.

Food was good but not "wow" good. We both got fish, my wife the Mahi Mahi and I the Salmon. They were not overcooked, but a bit on the dry side - probably from sitting a bit too long under heat lamps.

We ordered a few different entrees : seafood platter, fried flounder, NY strip, lobster and hushpuppies to name a few. All of our food was cooked perfectly and was delicious! The restaurant was smaller than we anticipated but it wasn’t cramped. Would recommend and go again.

Brought family and friends, visiting from out of town. Mom is especially picky and happily she loved everything. We had the fried baskets, sirloin, rib eye, pasta and hamburger- everyone was thrilled with their choices.

I was not impressed with this place. I made a reservation through OpenTable, which worked fine. Once I got there, I was a little disappointed with the ambiance. The tables are packed in there like a diner rather than a restaurant that charges as much as it does for food. Our waitress was nice, but she forgot my salad until I asked for it when our food came out. I still wanted it bec my meal didn’t come with a vegetable side. I’ve been to other restaurants where something similar happened, and the missed app/salad was comp’d. My mother and I both tried the seafood fettuccine. There was a good amount of seafood but not a lot of flavor. Mostly garlic and nothing else. My husband got the NY strip steak. It was described as having a dry rub, but came out with a demiglace. he had ordered mashed potatoes as his side, and the steak and demiglace was placed on top of the mash, so it was drowned out. With 3 adults, a teenager, and a toddler, our bill was about $200. IMO, the price was not commensurate with the level or quality of food. I might go back if a friend insists on it, but otherwise I’ll most likely try another restaurant instead.

Went for our anniversary and the food was great. Paid a pretty penny, but okay with that. Service was decent, not great. Waitress was not very personable.

Well I would say if you need to be seated with reservations and everyone is there but one person, be prepared to stand And wait. My sister got caught in traffic And was delayed by 10 min and the hostess made my 70 year old father and other guest stand and wait for her. I think if the majority of the party is there you should be able to be seated. Waiting on one person is a bit much. We did advise her he was handicapped Ans she allowed us to sit after about five min. But soon after my sister came. So i wasn’t happy about that. The food was really good Ans our waiter was great too. Wry small but nice place overall. Because if the hostess situation I will not be returning.
