First time to this place even though we live close. We had flounder sandwich which was so fresh that the fish fell apart. Yummy. Onion rings were super as were the fries. We also tried the fish balls which were really good. Had so much to eat with meal that we had no room for dessert. Service was great.. If... More

We were out touring the area, and needed a quick bowl of soup to ward off hunger . . and our NC friends brought us here. The Hatteras-style clam chowder hit the spot. We were advised it was not the creamy style base we might be expecting, nevertheless, delicious. An added treat . . the hushpuppies served right after being... More

We stopped here on the recommendation of the proprietors of Captain Henry's Gift Shop. My husband ordered the flounder and said it was excellent. I had the egg salad sandwich- yes an odd choice given our location. It was ok. We would definitely go back. Plan to go a bit before or after the lunch rush. It is a small... More

Oh Yum! We stopped in this charming little local grill for lunch after touring the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. The service is delightful, friendly, and quick. The food is wonderful. Fresh softshell crab sandwich with remoulade sauce and homemade hushpuppies! Stop by, you won't be sorry!

We were rained out of a ferry to Cape lookout, and came across this place for lunch. Menu is simple but delicious! We were served hushpuppies prior to our meal that were amazing. Though it was just my husband and I; I would definitely bring my family back for a delicious meal.

My trip to Cape Lookout got rained out so I stopped in for some lunch. Wow! The meal started off with free hush puppies. YUM! The chicken wings were piping hot (temperature) and my bacon cheeseburger was very well seasoned and one of the best I've ever had. The servers were very nice and on top of everything. I would...

The Fish Hook Grill is the most awesome place to eat! Fresh seafood, friendly people, and fantastic environment! And now they have a band on Saturday night on the patio!! Great music for hanging out with your great friends. Heather is wonderful, and she always remembers her customers. If you haven't eaten at the Hook yet, you are missing out!!... More

Fish Hook's hushpuppies are absolutely the best I have ever eaten. They always have fresh seafood and change up their menu specials daily. Great little place. I recommend this place to anyone who loves seafood. Oh yeah, their burgers are so tasty. I don't know what they use to season their burgers but they are my favorite.

Small but pleasant atmosphere, not too crowded and clean. Loved the fried soft crab sandwich which was cooked to perfection and the appetizer calamari. You could tell the seafood was fresh, not that box frozen straight from the truck stuff. The night we visited they had a band outside and after eating we enjoyed listening and drinking a refreshing adult... More
