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.

Hooper's is one of our favorite summer restaurants. The seafood is always fresh, the service is excellent and the prices reasonable. We've been regulars for the past 15 years and never get bored. The Hooper's Grouper is one of our favorite dishes but I have to say I've never had a bad meal. The staff is very friendly and helpful.... More

Hooper's is a great little gem of a restaurant. Really good and creatively prepared fresh seafood dinners at reasonable prices. BYOB. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient, and the chef is in and out of the kitchen and is very friendly and approachable also (he came out to say hello a couple and their small children, as well as speaking...

My Dad and I had our first dinner of the summer at Hooper's last night. It was better than ever. My Dad's fish (grouper)& chips where excellent. I had the tuna & shrimp special which was a work of art to look at, perfectly prepared and even better tasting. This is a small place where the people are friendly and... More

This restaurant is an absolute gem. The food is delicious and staff is wonderful (ask for Roberta for your server. She is so great.). I would dine here for any occasion. The flavors are spot on perfect. I've tried several items from the menu and have never been disappointed. Love this place. Some of the best, freshest seafood I've ever... More

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed at the lovely town of Brigantine for a weekend vacation. We tried a lot of different restaurants in A.C. all were very good. Our last night, we were physically beat so we wanted to stay local. I am so happy we did. Hoopers is a hidden gem. This tiny café/diner type setting has some... More

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.
