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

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

Great food every time I've been there and that says a lot for beach restaurants. The service is very good and the food quality and presentation is excellent. It is located in a strip center which doesn't have any beach view but the food is worth it.

My "Ladies Dinner Out" group of 7 went here on a recent Wednesday when food for ladies is 50% off! The owner came over to explain the menu to us as each entree has about five descriptive words explaining the gourmet ingredients, many of which were not familiar to us. He graciously offered to substitute potatoes for the cheesy grits... More

We were pleased with our visit to Just Hooked. We had been to the Bethany Beach location which was very small and cramped. Just Hooked is a comfortable size, with a nice bar. It can be noisy when they're busy, but not overly to be annoying. Food was very good, but not knock your socks off good. Bread provided also.... More
