It's small, it doesn't look like much, but the food is delicious. Big fan of Hoopers. Nothing exotic on the menu, just tasty, fresh seafood.

We had to wait a while because this is such a popular place...but it was worth the wait! Specials were good and seafood was fresh. Only downside: it is a bit small.

We eat here often and always have a delicious meal. The service and food is top notch. The seafood is always fresh, and, believe it or not, they serve an wonderful steak dinner, also. This is a BYOB. Always check out the specials, you will not be disappointed.

It was full of clams. The broth was smooth and creamy. One of the best i had in along time. Wife had the lobster bisque.... More

It is a small storefront with a nice casual feel to it; shorts, and sneakers will do but with it is fresh seafood, including some gourmet dishes as well as many shellfish dishes and super great service with a staff that instantly becomes a friend. A real winner and the owner Mike a former Chef at an Atlantic City Casino... More

We had dinner here for the first time in a couple years. I can't wait to go back. Seafood ravioli appetizer was amazing. We both had grilled tuna and shrimp, one over a salad, the other over an Asian slaw. Delicious! Service was great with Tammy, very attentive.

On our last trip to Atlantic City we were looking for a new place to eat away from the casino hotels and the city itself. Hoopers was close by and we decided to try it. The exterior is not much to look at and the interior is rather plain, but don't let that fool you. The food is fantastic! We... More
