A delightful surprise

We were shopping at a pottery store on the other side of a small strip mall when, mentioning to the owner that we wanted to find a place for lunch, he directed us to Just Hooked. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals very much. They were priced reasonably for a resort area as well, and our... read more

Specials are always a favorite. Their soft shells were to die for. My family initially went to the first restaurant "Off the hook" in Bethany. As the family grew, we migrated to "Just hooked". The consistency of the dishes they share is outstanding(ie corn & jalapeno crab bisque were identical - my favorite dish year after year).

Great food, delicious fried green beans. Wait staff was excellent. Could be a bit noisy but worth it.

We were seated promptly after our arrival at Just Hooked in Fenwick Island. The atmosphere is very light and open. The kitchen is located right next to the bar and you can see the chefs preparing the food. The menu was varied. A list of all the local places where the food came from was on the wall. Most of...

Went out to Just Hooked expecting a fabulous meal based on what I've heard around town. We were sat immediately and had above average service but nothing special. The food just wasn't up to par. We started with calamari which in all fairness was delicious, but then it was downhill from there. Paid 20 dollars for fish and chips that... More

I have reviewed Just Hooked in the past but this is the first time I have had lunch here. My husband and I shared the always delicious Corn and Jalapeño bisque and we both ended up choosing the Shrimp Tacos. Two nice size tacos with tons of fresh filling (tomato, cabbage, red peppers, jalapeno, cucumber, pickled onions), yummy shrimp and... More

We REALLY liked the staff and apps and entrees but.....they have an open kitchen so you start to get a smokey/oily/burnt aroma the busier they get. This odor overtook the taste of their delicious food. If they would enclose the kitchen, I would give them 5 stars.

I went back to this restaurant after two years (our previous vacation in Ocean City), and it is still the same great place. It is on the expensive side, especially if you drink wine. The fish and shellfish is amazing, and the dishes inventive and extremely fresh.

Farm to table. Great restaurant! Never miss a chance to go. Three generations enjoy it. Personal favorite is scallops but always good and innovative.

Heard good things about this local chain and went with family. Michael was fine except he didn't check to see that our fifth meal wasn't delivered with the others. It took about 6 to 8 minutes for him to see how we were doing. When he realized the mishap, he went to have a crab cake made. Then it took... More
