We always go to the Sandy Hook for special meals, Thanksgiving, Mother's day etc. Never had a complaint about the food from our group of 12 diners. Friendly help, but very busy! They take good care of their customers! Ask for Kristy!

Enjoyed our meal here. We had the 'Hook' and the 'Bounty' - both were very good. Loved the fresh loaf of bread that came with the meal. Staff was very nice and tries to offer you the best seat with a view. Loved watching the storeys as we at and watching the sunset. Prices were very reasonabl.

We stopped in while on a Mothers Day drive and were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the hostess and ambiance of the interior. Offered seating by the window, we enjoyed gorgeous water views while being served a fabulous meal by our attentive and knowledgeable server, Ron. Our meals were prepared and presented with care, unexpected for a busy restaurant... More

Great atmosphere and view. Decent food and good service. Great for families. The prime rib was tender but a little overdone. The standard fried shrimp was good. The decor is a diverse collection of kitschy marine-related objects on walls and ceiling. All in all, a fun time.

Dinner w friends from FLA. Conch fritters were great, and crab cakes were delish. Grouper was a little dry or overlooked, but friends were delighted w shrimp. Good service on a busy night.
