Excellent food prepared in a straight forward way. Small room which can get noisey if there are small children. During the week in the summer is best for me. I like it here and go often.

Our party of three tried the sunset dinner special. Definitely the right choice. Excellent service too. We'll be sure to come back the next time we're in Brigantine.

I've had a few super dinners this season at Hoopers. I love tuna and cooking it just right is something Hoopers does well. The friendly atmosphere and BYOB set up make it perfect.

Ate at hoopers tonight after being on the island for 40+ years. The atmosphere is cozy casual. Loved it at first sight. Monica was a great server! She was the reason I wanted to give it a 5!! We were greeted with a lovely bread basket. My husband had 6 succulent oysters that were perfectly fresh! Yum!! The salad was... More

Great seafood with a lot of seafood choices. You can eat in or take out. Crab cakes were excellent, 15pc shrimp dinner is great value. Fish and chips were 'ok' plenty of fish but was a little greasy on the bottom. All the sides were excellent.

My husband and I were looking for a good seafood dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. We went here based on other reviews. The food was good. We ordered mussels in a red sauce for an appetizer which was excellent. I had the horseradish crusted salmon which didn't have the punch I was looking for. It was good but not at... More

Always a nice meal and trip to Hoopers! The staff is always kind and helpful to do anything they can to give you a nice experience at Hoopers! I had the Stuffed Portabello Appetizer Special with jumbo lump crabmeat. It was delicious! It was over mixed greens with a balsamic drizzle. My husband and I had a Lobster corn chowder... More

We wanted a great seafood dinner and we found it. This time we were a group of 8. Arrived about 5:15 and though there were two tables, we waited 10 min to accommodate our large party; no problem, we sat and had a glass of wine (BYOB) outside while waiting. The staff was attentive, our waitress Dana was great. The... More
