Fast and friendly service. Nice quiet lunch with a friend.
Great food and our server was very helpful with creating a “custom entree” for our daughter. Thanks!!
The food was delicious and service was excellent.
Good service & food!
Best Easter brunch ever! Mara was the most perfect server. All staff amazing. Excited to go back for the yummy burrito!
Perfect for a date, delicious cocktails for only $10 each. Super reasonable for a craft cocktail in this area
Would love to see more than beer and wine served. Our table took 20 minutes to get cleaned off so we were waiting around for awhile.
While on vacation, we secured reservations at Hook and Plow. Overall food was good, waiter was professional. Unfortunately our main dish came out prior to our appetizers, however the waiter quickly alerted and chef and apologized. The crab cake was mushy not a favorite, however the brussel spouts were delicious and the butter nut squash was excellent. Overall, nice meal.
It was way too cold to sit curbside with fake flame “heaters”. The chairs were incredibly uncomfortable metal things with no padding, the tables were uneven, which made cutting food difficult, and the service was very slow. My kids liked the food, but I did not. For an average price per person of $45 (a few of us had tea, the rest drank water—no alcohol), the value is low.
Great customer service and delicious food! Great place for brunch!
Really nice, spaced out patio, great food and friendly service made for a really nice dining experience.
Apps and service were great . The mains were not up to par.
Ambiance and service were very good .
We had a great time dining at Hook & Plow Hermosa. Most of the seating is outside, and even the indoor seating is all very exposed to open air, so they have lots of heaters and were helpful in moving them around to ensure we were comfortable. We took advantage of the $15 corkage fee and brought our own wine. The food was so yummy and ended up being a reasonable bill all in all.
Food and service are always amazing! The outside dining is quite nice!
Heater wasn’t working; server took a long time to come back and get our dinner order after taking drink and appetizers order which made it extra cold. Food was ok.
Always a great place. Food and service are great. Thanks
The service was excellent, the patio was great and the food was tasty. The shrimp and grits were amazing but very rich. The ceviche was good, fresh but a little too sweet for my taste. The drinks were all good, but again just a little too sweet and not enough heat in the mango jalapeno margarita. The servers were quick and efficient and it felt safe during covid. I especially love that they take reservations and will probably be back!
Great Sunday morning breakfast/brunch option
We highly recommend the pear and burrata salad and the grilled cheese! The cocktails are really good too. The service was a little slow when we went, but other than that, we really enjoyed the food. We definitely want to visit again soon.
Another great H & B dinner!
Always love this local spot in the sunshine. Great salmon salad and crab cakes. Would 100% recommend over and over.
Perfect location and set up. Far enough away from the Pier, drinking crowd, but close to everything as well. A more mature feel for drinks with friends.
The server was not the best. He was not attentive. I’ve visited this place plenty of times previously, however the service this particular time was not the best.
We had an amazing date. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing!
Neighborhood gem. Great food and service. I especially love it for lunch since they have the “Chef’s Boards” where you can pick two or three items for one set price. Great value and really yummy choices! I recommend!
Hook and plow used to be our favorite seafood choice in Hermosa. However now prices have increased probably to covid, and the food is subpar from what it used to be for the $$. Would only come here for brunch in the future.
I've been here several times and have always enjoyed their food. It's savory, tasty, and cooked just right. The service has always been very good as well. Casual dining, delicious food, you can't go wrong.
Great evening. Thank you
Solid brunch spot with nice extended patio. Service was OK / awkward at times.
Both hostess and waitress were fantastic. And yes, the restaurant was beautiful! That said, the entre was not on par with the expectations that arose from the associated cost. We asked for a steak sandwich (medium) but received meat that was so raw and chewy, that our teeth could not pierce the meat. It was more of a bite, grip, rip, and pummel the meat with your molars until it was finally able to slide down the esophagus.
Again, service, ambiance, and appetizers were FANTASTIC. Highly recommend the panko avocados and the cheese board. And OH LORD, the coffee was hot and flavorful. Anyway, I wish you guys luck on your experience!
Delicious food and great service! The fish tacos were amazing!
Really enjoyed our meal at this great little spot. Very welcoming and the food was delicious!
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!
