It's a BYO which I like and convenient to get to but once there forget it. It's very small so the tables are close together. Its hot in the summer . I had a fish platter smothered in a chutney type sauce. When I cleared the sauce away the fish couldn't have been more than 1/4 inch thick. There are... More

I have been all over the world, but this is by far the best cuisine I have dined upon in my years of traveled. My Divine pallet has finally been satiated.

Stopped in for dinner, very impressed! The New England Clam Choder was some of the best I've had (no sand and lots of tender clams!), service was friendly and timely. The shrimp & scallops were cooked perfectly and seasoned well (had the sweet thai shrimp & scallops...excellent!). A very welcoming resturuant... the cook even came outto make sure our meals... More

While vacationing in Brigantine NY just outside of Atlantic City, our group of 4 gave Hooper's a whirl. It's a relatively small restaurant immediately adjacent to a fresh fish market that I believe is part of Hooper's business. I had a grouper dish that was prepared in with a topping I hadn't had before which was excellent. The others had... More

We love Hoopers. It's a well known treasure for locals but get there on the earlier side for dinner cause the secret's out. The entrees are so fresh and creative. A favorite was the beer battered grouper. Excellent for kids too. Mine really liked the fried shrimp platter (shared for smaller ones) and the chowder is delicious! Be prepared for... More

We are locals from nearby Galloway, close friends recommended Hoopers. The service was friendly and efficient. Rolls & Mini-corn muffins are placed on the table prior to your salads, which are tasty. Seafood is fresh and nicely prepared. I usually go for the specials, this night I had the Chilean Sea bass which was delicious. My husband had the scallops,... More

We found this place by accident. We were looking for a different restaurant in Brigantine and couldn't find it. This place popped up on our GPS and we decided to try it. It is no frills but has very good food and the wait staff is very pleasant. It may be family-run, but I'm not sure. My husband had the... More

We came as a party of seven, and they creatively fit us in as soon as possible, which was teriffic considering how small this restaurant is. The hostess was sweet and did a great job handling us! I got the three lobster tails, which were pretty good. Not the best I've ever had, but nothing "bad" about it. The sides... More

This is a very quaint small and delicious establishment. I have had Seafood all around the world and nothing ever compared to St. Mary's County Maryland. (Until I opened the door and smelled the fresh seafood cooking). My mouth was watering from the start. I was accompanied by my girlfriend and we were greeted by the professional host Laura. She...
