This restaurant has been on my list to visit for a while and unfortunately just about everything possible that could go wrong did. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait only to be told it would be an hour after waiting for 35 minutes. Our server was very inattentive and could not be bothered. When we told... More

Visited Hooked for lunch on 2/5/17. This was our first time there, but like its sister restaurant, “Just Hooked”, it won’t be our last. The service was fast and efficient. It was very clean and most items were half price. Well, what could go wrong? Absolutely nothing. The food was wonderful, tasty, and nice portions. I loved the kale salad... More

My husband and I ate at Hooked last summer and we LOVED the food! It is currently our #1 place to eat in Ocean City. We had a slight issue when purchasing a gift card but as soon as I spoke to the manager, it was immediately taken care of. The food is top notch and they value their customers.

Every time I've been the food has been amazing and I've never been disappointed. Today I was distraught after finding out they no longer made their pesto fries. I feel as if they made the restaurant stand out, that they can take ordinary menu items, change them a bit and make them great.

We were looking for a place with good food that wasn't a chain for lunch. In a resort town in the off-season this can be a challenge. Looking on Trip Advisor, we came across Hooked. We weren't disappointed. It's easy to find, located right on the the main drag (Coastal Highway). While there was some parking in front (fine for... More

They have a nice menu, good specials, and a just ok atmosphere. We had dinner upstairs and lunch one day at the high tops in the bar. We enjoyed the food, the crab soup was very good but unfortunately was served not hot. Yes, we could have asked to have it warmed but that's not something anyone should have to... More

Stopped in here for dinner. The wait was only 10 minutes on a Saturday night which was not bad! We had the crab dip appetizer, steak and seafood for dinner. The waiter was very friendly and our food was there fairly quickly.....in about 15 minutes. The waiter thought it was too long as he offered us a drink on the... More

We stopped in for happy hour on Monday. Appetizers were half price and the shrimp and grits was $10. The shrimp and grits were excellent, the grits were creamy and delicious, and topped with shrimp and andouille sausage. We also split the ribs, baked oysters and boom boom shrimp. The boom boom shrimp was nice and crispy, with enough sauce... More

For our annual trip to Ocean City, we fell in love with HOOKED! We called first to get a reservation but Kaitlyn said it was walk-in only, so we came right over. We thought there was a wait, but Tiffany the manager took us upstairs and gave us a roomy table for 4 in a lovely room. (There was live... More

Fantastic deal at happy hour. My son and I came in for food. He ordered the burger and I ordered the buck a shuck oysters. As usual the food and service can't be beat. It would be tough to find a better deal in ocean city for happy hour. To top it off they had entertainment. The guy playing the... More
