Ate here out of season - in November. Restaurant was still reasonably crowded. The food we ordered, a burger, a salad, and fish, was first rate. Our server was excellent. The prices were reasonable. We will absolutely return. A very nice experience in every respect. Glad this restaurant is open year round.

We went for $2 taco night and loved it. The food was great - the service was great and the band made it for a fun night. Oh, and there was even a magician!

By far, this restaurant was my favorite from my Labor day weekend. That being said, let the review begin.

The restaurant was extremely packed and the wait was a little long, but the food was worth it. It was a nice touch to have a bar outside the establish, so the customers could orders drink while waiting to be seated. the restaurant had an outside seating area and two floors, the top floor also had an outside balcony to enjoy the view of the sunset.

The food was amazing.We had the mussel and the calamari as appetizers, the calamari was light and crisp and the broth form the mussel dish was an excellent dipping sauce for the bread they served in the beginning. For the entree, my family order the roasted salmon, the crab cake, and the scallops. It was a lovely seafood galore, all the seafood was prepared to perfection and I literally tasted the ocean in mouth. Our waiter recommended the crab cakes, but what took me by surprise were the scallops. A lot of establishments I went to overcook the scallops, but that dish took the home run. If I am ever back again in Ocean City, I will return back craving for more food.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a quiet Tuesday. Happy to find Hooked open, when so many other establishments were closed. Service was wonderful! Thanks for being so accommodating Paula! The Crab and corn Bisque was SO good! My husband wanted scallops, but not batter, so he was offered a side order to go with the calamari. Calamari was among the best ever. Really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere!

Good food excellent service. Very fresh seafood awesome cocktails. Winter visit so it wasn't real crowded but still a full restaurant.

Small menu that really delivers. I had crab cake on a brioche bun which was excellent. Kelsey, our server, reflected the bright and charming atmosphere. This small restaurant had such an integrated feel of simplicity and quality. I plan on returning and exploring their seasonal menu.

I've been to Ocean City many times, and I always seem to get stuck as restaurants that are over priced and filled with tourists. For this trip, a friend who grew up in OC recommended this restaurant, and boy was it a great recommendation. This is the best restaurant I have ever been to in OC.

First of all, the restaurant is very pretty when you walk in. It's very simple and modern. They have a great draft selection, but I ordered a pear riesling. Yummy.

Before we came, I scanned the online menu and saw garlic parmesan tater tots listed. When we got to Hooked, however, it wasn't listed. They were happy to make them for us anyway, along with some calamari. As you can imagine, they were both delicious.

My boyfriend and I both ordered the scallops dish. It came with brussel sprouts, chorizo, and thin potato strips. It was downright outstanding. I finished every single bite on that plate. I highly recommend it.

For dessert, the wait staff brought us a complimentary cheesecake for my boyfriend's father's birthday.

I highly recommend this restaurant. I know the next time I'm in OC, I'll be coming back here. You can count on that.

My sister and I visit the restaurant at least once on every one of our frequent visits to OCMD. We have NEVER been disappointed! The food is wonderful, always fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I find the quality to be superb ... and not just "resort" good, the restaurant could compete anywhere! The menu does change based on season and availability of certain ingredients, however some items (such as their wonderful calamari) is a menu staple. Plus, they have great off season specials!

The food is unique . It looks great and tastes great. not the typical OC fare. My favorite food in OC !

by Mark B. on Just Hooked

With all the touristy places to eat (gag!) in Ocean City, this ain't one of them! It's well run, classy but not prudish. The service is good but too bad the server did not know how to present and serve a bottle of wine. I would suggest to the management to spend about 5 minutes with your help and explain how to do this. If you are going to sell good bottles of wine, the server needs to know how to serve it. Only a minor detraction from the wonderful lunch we had at Hooked. I will go back in a heart beat!
