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 !

    Service was great, but the food was not. Steak was overcooked. Risotto needed seasoning. Brocolini was the highlight.

    Food was good and restaurant is nice. Our waitress was nice and pleasant. The only dislike was when my husband and I walked in, the hostess was not present. No one acknowledged that we were standing there waiting.

    The macaroni and cheese, chicken fingers and French fries were my favorite and I ordered these for my 2 y/o grandson. Things ordered that I wasn’t a fan of- shrimp cocktail was nice sized shrimp but I feel it was previously frozen, crab dip and chips were greasy, the NY strip sweet and savory dry rub was too sweet, risotto was dry and flavorless. Key lime pie tasted frozen, thankfully they comped us for it. Things ordered that I did like mac n cheese (#1 and I do not like it in most places!)chicken tenders, French fries were really good. By the time I ate the hush puppies it was cold and hard but had nice flavor. Green beans were all dente which are my preferred way of eating them, the strip steak was nice but I didn’t like the rub. Cheesecake tasted nice (I’m generally not a cheesecake fan). I was told the chicken Alfredo and the crab Mac n cheese were nice. My steak was cooked as requested, one person order medium filet and the inside was raw. They also ordered fries that never came out. Service was in slow side, took about 30 mins to get 2 beers out, and I was offered a refill on my soda while eating dessert but left before it ever came. I was really jonesing the chocolate cake which they no longer carry. The staff were all very pleasant though. This place has the potential to be great with some tweaks. I hope they work on it. This place was not crowded at all, so I really could not understand how or why. I could have definitely spent the $300 (5 adults/1 toddler) + elsewhere and enjoyed it more.

    Frank our waiter was wonderful. Such amazing service. Wish the food was the same. Not much taste. The she crab soup was SO fishy tasting. The mashed potatoes looked like grits-so much so our son asked what they were.

    This a review on open table who took our reservation request and then confirmed our Sunday Luncheon, while warning us that not showing would incur losing our creditcard deposit When we showed the restaurant was closed. Nobody to be blamed but open table And now Open Table wants a review? They should update their software

    When we try to make our reservations for our preferred time, we were offered earlier times only. However when I called to change our number the hostess was gracious and kind and understanding. Unfortunately that did not make up for the very cold decor and empty restaurant. It is unfortunate that the ambience is not as welcoming as the hostess and employees. The food was good and our service was excellent.

    Mediocre. Staff was nice but food lack luster and tastes like everything has been canned or previously frozen. Feels like youre at a tourist trap but without any of the fun ambiance. Overly priced for very average meal

    This was our second time to eat here and again the food and service was excellent. We had the fish tacos with tuna and they were delicious. Our waitress, Maddy, was very attentive. She was there when we needed her and returned to fill water glasses and remove dishes when needed. Very friendly personality. It is a bit noisy inside. We decided to eat out on the patio and that was quieter with a nice breeze to keep us cool.

    The waitress was outstanding. The food was very large portions but the fried seafood platter was bland and heavily battered. The hush puppies were very tasty but barely warm. The broccolini and the green beans were not good at all. They were very overcooked and did not taste good. The whole flounder was steaming hot and crispy but did not have much flavor nor any seasoning. I asked for garlic butter and the chef kindly made me some. The mashed potatoes were yummy. The steak was covered in a crust of a lot of sugar and had to scrape it off. The calamari was delicious although a bit soggy but was not rubbery like a lot of other restaurants. A lot of food for the money but would have preferred less quantity and more quality.

    They didn’t have dedicated bartenders, and instead the servers were making the drinks. So getting a drink took forever. A real missed opportunity too because my table’s bill would’ve been a lot higher had we gotten our drinks faster and thus ordered more. Service, while pleasant, was all around spotty and inconsistent.

    A group of 5 for dinner. Testa was busy but we did have a reservation. My husband commented the server didn’t write down our dinner choices & she replied she didn’t need to after being in service for 4 years. Of course, his sides were wrong. Food was great and portions were large.

    One of the guests had she crab soup and it's wasn't hot it was Luke warm also the oysters some where cooked some was raw. The oil in the fryer seemed to be to hot or old. This was a our church group. The noise level in the restaurant was extremely loud it was so hard to hear the person sitting by side you.

    Very good dining experience for my mothers birthday. The waitress was attentive and the food was good as usual. Their meals are consistently good every time I dine there. The only criticism I have, is when I called to make reservations, the gentleman that answered the phone was not accommodating. He didn’t seem to care if I made a reservation or not. Because of that I almost decided to go elsewhere but we wanted seafood and as I said the food is delicious. Also FYI if you bring a cake they charge an additional $20.00.
