Wonderful Year Round Gem

Off the Hook is located on Route 26 just west of Bethany Beach, Delaware. It is open year round. The menu changes frequently featuring local products and businesses. The food is always hot, delicious, and artfully served. There is an outside patio for alfresco dining in nice weather. The menu... read more

Absolutely love this place! I've always said that for a restaurant to succeed, it needs to follow 4 basic rules: 1) Serve quality food 2) reasonable prices 3) good service 4) practice cleanliness. They sound simple, but the overwhelming majority of restaurants just don't do it. Off the Hook does it and easily brings home a 5 rating. The menu... More

We spent a week in Bethany. What we found was just about everyplace has a pricey menu. Here the food was great! Large portions (except the crab dip!) and fair to good service. I ordered the fish and chips- large portion, good taste, huge pile of fries...@ $20+...still a good fish & chips basket ($12-14 anywhere else, out of this... More

Six of us went there tonight. The food was fine. It's overpriced but hey we're on vacation. We were enjoying a nice dinner. The waiter - a guy in an Alice band - was pleasant, affable and efficient. Unfortunately he was usurped by an arrogant and very rude waitress - she's the one wearing a yellow head band and blessed... More

We recently dined at Off the Hook with a party of 10. The service was prompt and the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The orders ranged from seafood to pasta and all were delicious but the portions were excessive. No one could finish their entrees. We highly recommend this restaurant but share the main course and leave in comfort!

We went here our first night in town as we were told this is the place to come in Bethany. After a 2 hour wait we sat down in the small restaurant and ordered crab cake flat bread and calamari. It was so good. I order the scallops, delicious but a bit over priced for 6 scallops. But they were... More

Oh, my gosh! We absolutely loved the food at this restaurant. When we arrived, it was quite crowded, but we were able to get seats at the bar. That was a bonus to us. We watched the chefs do their thing. Quite impressive. I had a salmon dish that came with couscous. LOVED IT! Would highly recommend (as did Sue... More

Off the Hook is not visually impressive; it is a small, crowded restaurant in a shopping center. But the locally sourced food is distinctive and delicious. Nothing against the standard burgers, wings and surf-n-turf -- but you can get those things anywhere. This place is for people who would like to try something different, something you can't cook at home.... More

When we arrived we were greeted by a very sullen young lady with blonde hair and a huge chip on her shoulder. We arrived last night at 5PM before the rush and there were many open table inside. She offered us an open table right next to the entrance door and when I requested another table I got a shoulder... More
