Always enjoy eating here with friends. Seared Tuna Rare with Asian Slaw was excellent. Mike and Ed have been established here for a long time and have been solid restauranteurs in Brigantine all along! Patronize their place!

Best seafood on the Island of Brigantine, NJ. Great service! I had the soft shell crab my first fir this year and they were the best I've ever had. Others in our party had the fish of the day, scallops, and shrimp, and raved about their dinners.

I have been coming to Hoopers for years during the summers. Every time my family comes down to our beach house in Brigantine. Hoopers is always the first place we go for dinner. It's exactly what you want for a great seafood restaurant at the beach. The food is always delicious and the waitstaff always do an amazing job. Mike,... More

Down the shore for 25 years (margate) and this was our first time at hoopers. It was great. Small place and no reservations but that would be the only negative. Fried tomato and blackened tuna app were great. Lobster seafood boil amazing. All good and byob to boot. Go you'll enjoy it and go back.

My family and I walk down to Hooper's whenever we are in the mood to have a great summer meal. It's welcoming, high quality, and affordable. One thing I really appreciate about Hooper's is that a) it's BYOB, so you can sit outside at a picnic table and pop open your wine to catch the sunset if there's a short... More

Although I have been to this restaurant many times, I am still amazed at how delicious it is. We planned to go on Saturday for our date night and all day I just could not get it out of my head. I started off with the Manhattan Chowder and my husband had the Lobster bisque. Delicious as usual and I... More

It sits next door to a seafood market which turns out to be the same owners. We got there 15 minutes before they opened and set outside an waited till they opened. We where... More

Super small dinning experience! The quality of the food is superior! The blackened tuna was prepared with great ingenuity! The warmed coconut macaroon with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce was fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The staff is very friendly, courteous, and attentive to every detail. The owner is on the floor visiting every guest to make certain that each and... More

Three friends had a great meal with quick, efficient, and friendly service. I had grilled tuna and shrimp that was great. We brought a bottle of wine and had a wonderful time. This is a nice family-owned small place in Brigantine that is enjoyable to go to.
