Outstanding service and food. The crab cake and brick chicken were off the charts. Service was the best. Celebrated my wife’s birthday. Will be back!
Excellent service and food. I think the $16 surcharge for adding 3 scallops to the salad is a bit excessive.
Great food and service.
Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. She made great recommendations. The seafood was very fresh and everything was well-seasoned. We especially loved the halibut ceviche
It was Valentines Day and they had a special menu. Very good choices. We started with the fries.....oh my, delish. We had to order another this time the Furikake Fries. Equally delish. I had the Pear & Burrata salad, amazing. My hubby had the Clam Chowder. He claims its the BEST he has ever had! His main coursed was the 12oz.New York Strip with Scallops. Equally just as delish as everything else. He said it is our new go to when we visit from Palm Springs.
I had the Valentines special with lamb chops that were exceptional and my husband had the pork belly pasta which he loved. The banana custard dessert was the perfect balance of sweet and savory from the meringue to the graham cracker crust. It was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary and Valentines Day.
Maria B was awesome! Lot of fun on our Valentine’s Day family brunch! Such a great spot.
Great food - exceeded expectations! Friendly service!
It was amazing food and excellent outdoor space!
Great food on the main drag. Easy to walk to Pier after eating. Friendly staff and a real gem.
Amazing food and very quick service
can’t wait to do it again
Always a great meal! Grand reopening again during Covid. We've come here weekly when closed and do grateful restaurants are back. Food, service, staff always excellent! Tables spaced apart. Servers in masks and shields.. We felt comfortable
The staff are awesome and the food is divine!!
My experience was ruin thanks to the hostess who was unnecessarily rude and had a terrible attitude.
Austin was our waitress and she was great! Her menu knowledge was outstanding, perfect selections for beers, appetizers and entrees! The outdoor dining was perfectly spaced and comfortable. Thank you for a great evening.
Great service, amazing ambiance, and the food was awesome! They don’t have a full bar, but the wine and craft cocktails were delicious!
Everyone enjoyed each dish we ordered. Also Chad was an excellent server.
Not happy: Showed up for my reservation early. Two 4-tops empty when I arrived. Teenager seating people said those were only for 4 people. Fine. 10 min later she takes us to a 2-top. But we’re a reservation of 3? Oops she made a mistake. We’ll have to wait for one of the 3-tops ....they’re all taken.. fine. Only 4 total (2 of them are actually back by the bar so not really outdoor dining? which I had requested, plus that’s supposedly mandated for Covid so I’m confused by that arrangement.) still waiting. she seats a party at the 4-top. Still 1 of those left empty. Now I’m at 20-25 min wait with a reservation!! Then she seats a party of 3 at the remaining 4-top!! What?! I ask and she says their reservation was for 4 but 1 didn’t show! So it’s ok to seat 3 people at the 4-top because they reserved for 4!!! 😤The manager type shows up and gives me the “we’re doing everything we can under the circumstances...” routine. Really ? They have about the same number of tables except they’re outside. Now they don’t know how to seat people? It’s Just sheer unprofessionalism!! I’ve been a good customer for years since the 1st days when they would often be empty. I always left 20%+ tip. when I complained about all this rigamarole I got the “you don’t have to eat here” response! Wow! NO effort to make things right with the customer as any good restaurant would have done. So we left and won’t be back. I’m telling all my hb and mb friends. so far no one’s impressed with their actions. Btw Don’t book a 3person table ... book for 4 then just show up with 3 so you won’t wait while others are being seated at the 4-tops AND you won’t get stuck at the indoor “outside” tables, which are basically inside by bar. It was better when they first opened. Original chef left?? It now seems overpriced except for happy hour. Best bet: go for happy hour and eat dinner elsewhere. Plenty of great choices in the area with a more considerate, professional staff, and better pricing. No thx!
Birthday for mama bear
Delicious food and drinks. Service was prompt and very friendly. Will be back!
Nice atmosphere and good service but the food is overall very bland. The only thing that was outstanding was the New England clam chowder. I think they maybe just need to season their food.
Great food and service! The only thing missing, was heat lamps. Bring a jacket!
Had a very nice meal. Lamb carbonara and the hangar steak were both very nice. Good crab cake and the Pear + Barrata salad was great. Service was good and we'll definitely be back!
Such an amazing menu! Love the outdoor dining space! It’s so cozy and separated from the sidewalk w/ such a nice thoughtful design
Had an excellent time with server Dani ✨👌🏻
This was our first visit to Hook and Plow since they built the expanded outdoor seating area. The ambiance was nice, with the tables spaced a comfortable distance apart (thanks). Our waitstaff was attentive and helpful navigating the menu and accommodating my food allergies. We were pleasantly surprised with the Kale & Quinoa salad to start (large enough to share), my wife ordered the hamburger, I ordered the hangar steak. She was happy with the hamburger, I thought the hangar steak was perfect at medium rare, and enjoyed the couscous and grilled veggies on the plate. Overall, a great dining experience.
So very disappointing as we've been fans and diners at H&P since 2014 when we moved to the South Bay. The new menu items are a disappointment as well as the removal of long standing favorites. Even our food server seemed less enthusiastic about new menu items and changes. H&P has been a family go-to, but sadly it has been disappointed our last few visits since August. This past weekend was par for the recent course. :(
Excellent service. Very nice. They need heat lamps now that we are in October. More options for vegetarians would be great. They need an additional steak option (fillet or ribeye) on the menu.
The burger and brick chicken was amazing!!
They did a great job of making a beautiful outdoor seating area. Plenty of space in between tables and great service.
It was great and very different and very close to the beach
Absolutely adore this place! Everything. I had the lamb carpaccio + cheese board + roasted brussel sprouts . To die for!!!! Service was on point. I will definitely come here again !!
Great ahi sandwich and wine selection.
Great! Was a good venue for a business meeting which we are new to hosting again
Delicious food! Fresh ingredients! We savored every tasty bite! We will definitely re-book! Thank you!
First time dining here. Really enjoyed the food, and happy to see them doing good business with their patio. However, this will be a nicer place to visit once Calif ends this idiotic outdoor only dining, because the interior looked very inviting.
Nice having the outdoor seating, hope we can keep it for a few more months!! Service was great , if I could give more than 5 stars I would. The food was a bit off this time, kind of a bummer. I had the Sea bass “off the hook”, way to much oil .
The waiter kept commenting on how the food was disappearing from my plate. He took away my plate before my companion was finished eating. He neglected to inform me that there would be an up charge for substituting vegetables and then apologized. Sitting outside next to the street subjected us to loud motorcycles. The food was good, but over salted.
The lamb risotto was fantastic! Open patio seating had plenty of space.
