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

My husband and I visited Hooper's in July 2014 while staying in Brigantine for the week. My husband is not a big seafood eater, but he chose the ribs for his meal and enjoyed them. I had the seafood Fra Diablo. I thought that the seafood was very fresh and prepared very well... and there was a lot of it!... More

What a fantastic little find! This is a small restaurant, so the crowds get a little large at peak times, but they work you in very quickly. We only had to wait about 15 minutes on a busy Saturday night. It is well worth the wait!! BYOB. We had the shrimp Creole, the seafood fra Diablo, and a blackened tuna... More
