Nice place to enjoy lunch or dinner

This location of the four "Hook"-named beach-resort restaurant group is so unassuming as to be almost missable from the outside. But an off-season winter visit proved an extraordinary and surprising pleasure. Nothing fancy in the atmosphere department (though crisp, clean and pleasant enough), but super fancy in the food department. The chef's creation of shrimp and grits was a tantalizing... More

Really good soup,salads and seafood for four of us at a recent lunch. Service was really good and our waiter was able to create a Long Island Ice Tea without any trouble. The beet salad, oysters, cauliflower bisque and roasted broccoli were all excellent. The restaurant is easy to miss since it is in an unassuming strip mall, at first... More

Food was good and the service was great. Overall, although they indicated we could order off the menu and get what "we wanted," the menu is limited in selections. There wasn't much that appealed to us. The food presentation and flavor was okay.

This group of restaurants knows how to prepare and serve fresh seafood. Once again we were treated to a great lunch. We had a fish sandwich and Crab cake sandwich. Both prepared perfectly and very tasty. I actually took one piece of fish off the bun and just dipped it in special sauce. Price was very fair for what we... More

Based on the great reviews from Trip Advisor we had to try this restaurant. Glad we did. Even with our GPS we managed to pass the restaurant and pulled into the parking lot of the restaurant next door...that place looked more inviting from the parking lot than this restaurant... but we pulled back out and drove into the right parking...

My wife and I have been visiting the Bethany Beach area for years but this year we decided to give Off The Hook a try after reading their menu in a local paper. We cannot believe we passed this place by so many times before. We have tried it twice for both lunch and dinner and both times the food... More

Based on reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to have dinner at Off the Hook. It was excellent. We visited on a Wednesday evening which turned out to be Ladies Night which meant my dinner was half price. I chose the surf and turf which was shrimp and filet. It was outstanding. My husband had the swordfish and was very... More

So many people I know love this place, so glad we took their recommendation. The service is laid back, but warm. The food is really good.
