After a long, wet day of viewing properties with our realtor we followed her recommendation and found our way to this small, but well appointed oasis. We dried out over Grey Goose and Catoctin Rye. The wait staff was friendly, competent and flexible. They had no problem with my wife's order of a wedge salad with a side of Brussels... More

Bread has a good flavor but needs to be cut in half, as the.middle is too thick and gooey. We ordered the.special, which was Mahi with spinach...it was awful! The fish was... More

We eat at off the hook looking for a place to cater our wedding in August 2015. The food is absolutely to die for -- flatbread, crab bisque, crab cakes.. Whatever you get it will be good. Can't wait for off the hook to cater our wedding!!

I have eaten at Off The Hook several times and was never disappointed with the food or the service. The first time I was there, the music was overpowering.

Good value for your money and great seafood options. Be prepared to wait but it its worth it! Indoors is a little cramped for seating but enjoyed the outdoor dining option.

One of the few good places to eat in the area. This is our go to place for a wonderful dinner. We especially love their calamari and Caesar salads.
