One of two awesome places in Fenwick

This is where the locals go! We had awesome fish and shrimp tacos one day and something called hoof and claw the second time (so good we came back!). We lucked out that we came before the season. Packed with locals already. We will come back here again.

We happened to find ourselves at Monday $2.00 taco and $3.00 draft craft beer night, so we enjoyed tacos (fish and shrimp) as an appetizer along with fun craft draft beers! My entree - crabcakes! What a fantastic evening of food, friends, and fun! Ash, our table waitstaff was exceptional. We can't wait to travel back to MD ... and... More

Just Hooked touts local, fresh ingredients. All of the fish specials the night we were there (golden tilefish, tuna, swordfish) were from New England, and may have been frozen. I ordered the baked oysters with gruyere cheese, chorizo and spinach. The oyster were gigantic, but there was no hint of the strong, spicy chorizo and the cheese wan't the nice... More

I warn you now. Do not go for the Monday special of $2 tacos and $3 craft beer. Unless you like lines, crowds and insanity. We were lucky, wife and I went on a quiet Tuesday. We sat at the bar and Maddy the bartender was friendly and helpful. This is one of those farm/dock to table, natural/healthy/organic/local places to... More

This is by far the best dining we have found in the Fenwick DE OC MD area. Only competition is the related "Hooked" in OC. Enjoy

We ate here last night and both had the fish and chips which were rather ordinary. First, they used a flakey fish rather than a firm type fish. This made for a mushy fish. Second, instead of using a Panko type coating which would have given the fish some crunch, they used a plain bread coating which added nothing to... More

Have been here a few times. Love it. Great service. Delicious food. Friendly staff. We love to sit in the bar area where you can see them prepare the food. They also have fabulous happy hour specials. The shrimp tacos and cherrystone clams are awesome. Will definitely go back. The kids loved it too.

The food served at Just Hooked fully lived up to my expectations of the "Hooked" family of restaurants in the Fenwick, Bethany and Ocean City area. Having eaten at all of the "Hooked" restaurants, my expectations were high; and they were met. However, as others have commented the ambiance and overall atmosphere was not up to the same standards I... More

I've been here for lunch a couple of times when I was at the beach, and I really enjoyed my selections. But this beach visit, we went for dinner on a Sunday night and took advantage of their great off-season Sunday three-course special. Not only was the price excellent, more importantly, the swordfish was terrific; prepared to perfection (not dry... More
