We went there twice during our four-night stay in Wildwood. Fish Tacos are a must. Onion Rings are very tender, not too much batter or crumbs on them. Clam Chowder is very "home style." Tried their special that day Blackened Swordfish Sandwich. Delicious! Little Neck Clams were a little too salty and garlicky to my taste on our first visit.... More

My family (wife and 2 kids, age 7 and 9) had a delicious lunch here, right on the docks with the fishing boats. The chowder, fish tacos, onion rings, and fish sandwhich were outstanding. We made sure to get here early to avoid the lunch rush. :)

Local fisherman and his family opened the business up a few years ago and it is the best place you're going to find on the Jersey Shore. Fresh seafood (the boat is right out back) caught that day by the father, cooked by the mother and served by the sons. They are amazing people with equally fantastic food and service.... More

We ate here Sunday August 10, 2014. We had the fried shrimp platter and seared ahi tuna sandwich. The shrimp were the absolute best! They were huge with a very light coating, terrific tasting. The coleslaw was excellent and fresh. The tuna was perfectky prepared and served on a delicious roll with lettuce and tomatoes. I put a little coleslaw... More

Fish Tacos were great. Eating outside on the picnic tables was nice too. I will be coming here again.

the tables are outdoors by the water...not many, maybe five or six picnic tables with benches...you are literally right next to the boat that catches all of the superb fresh fish...stone crab claws, steamed crabs, seafood combo, fresh catch of the day....don't forget those delicious fish tacos...fresh and flavorful...even the fries and the onion rings were yummy....didn't mind at all...

If you're not looking for fancy, but rather just want fresh, simple, delicious seafood... you need to go here. The fish comes right off the boat. I personally love the simplicity of being able to order a dozen crabs, along with some sides such as soup or a dessert (key lime pie). It's especially great if you are renting a... More

Whenever we go away on vacation, we look for opportunities to try local restaurants off the beaten path that offer good food that the locals love to eat at. We did some research and found Hooked Up Seafood and decided that this would be one of our risk meals and boy were we ever glad we stopped in. It can... More

Fresh caught, right from the boat. Seriously as close as you can get to catching it yourself. This place has no interior, and a small picnic table area on the dock, which filled up fast on a Wednesday night. They have a small yet interesting menu. Kids meals r just ok, a bit pricey but able to be shared. Try... More
