Always a good experience at this Hook and Plow. Prefer this one to Hermosa Beach.

Never disappoints! Fresh ingredients with good flavor profiles. Everything I’ve ever ordered there was delicious. And now they have expanded outdoor seating. Really nice.

A great evening with outdoor seating under warm heaters and a delicious chef’s favorite burger in a bed of greens. The house fries are awesome too!

The place is packed. We got there before the dinner hour and right before happy hour ended. We had reservations but they seated us to the far end without a heater. When asked, they moved us to the fire pit. The seating was awkward but it was better than sitting without a heater that didn't have any propane. The salads were too expensive for plain, un-innovative like. I came here because they served tofu and was kind of surprised they just plunked tofu in a salad without any forethought. I would not come back. Service was fine.

Overall we were satisfied with the experience and some of the food. We loved our crab cake and clam chowder, but seafood platter was a bit disappointing. Crab meat was dry, poke wasn’t anything special, and the ceviche was average with a weird after taste. Waiters were nice and attentive though.

Food was outstanding. My only complaint is that they won't allow anyone to bring their own wine in and pay corkage. Makes absolutely zero sense. You're touching plates, glasses etc so there really is no difference.

The mushroom risotto with scallops was awesome. They really should do a seared scallops over linguini or spaghettis like they show on the Hermosa website.

The bread pudding was to die for!

I had wanted to try the Hook and Plow for some time and I’m so glad I did! I had the mushroom risotto and added scallops; wow. So flavorful and the scallops were perfectly seared on the outside and juicy on the inside! I will definitely be back :)

We were seated upon arrival and immediately greeted by Tracy, our server. The food and service couldn’t have been better. The panko avocado appetizer was the perfect temperature and the presentation was appealing. The kale salad and chicken sandwich were delicious! We’ll be back soon.

Gorgeous night out and area was bustling on a friday night. Loved the ambiance. I did specify of reservation we were celebrating a birthday with name of person was hoping they would of noticed and done a mini dessert of some sort. But other than that great meal. The Peach Burrata salad is ahhhmazing. The steak sandwich incredible and chilean sea bass was perfection!

Horrible service. We ordered 2 appetizers, assuming they would come out before our food. Boy were we wrong. Everything came out together and when we told the server that we wanted them 1st. She said that we should have told her that. Is it our job to remind her that appetizers should come out before the meal. Nothing had any flavor. We were out of wine for a while before we had to track down a busier and try to order some from him. When our server finally came over w the wine we told her that a couple of the items weren’t good. She just said okay and left and didn’t try to fix anything. I have eaten here several times and never had a great experience. I won’t be coming back.

Disappointing sums it up. Service was slow, food was ok. They have a new rule that you are not allowed to bring in your own wine which is much better than their wine selections. They say it is because of Covid. I disagree because other restaurants in the Riviera are allowing wine with a corkage fee. We will not return until this new rule" is lifted.

Food good, service slow. Received brewed coffee which only filled one cup for $9. Next time I'll take water. No heaters provided - it was a cool/cold night and even with a jacket I was shivering. Cought a cold as a result. As weather gets cooler you'll have a hard time getting customers to sit outdoors.
