Just Hooked Excellent

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

We've NEVER had a mediocre meal at Just Hooked - this is absolutely the best seafood restaurant on the Delaware shore. From their amazing $2 shrimp and fish tacos on Monday nights off season, to their scrumptious scallops or crabcakes or any seafood dinner on the menu, they are definitely #1 - the food, the ambiance and the service just...

First Just Hooked is Wheelchair accessible. Second they do everything well. The list all the places they get fresh ingredients. There is seafood in the appetizers, soups and entrees. They fix vegetable, polenta, grits and everything very well.

We waited for off season knowing how popular this place is. Made the drive from Rehoboth Beach and were not disappointed. Got a table right away and our server, Chelsea, was great. Oysters and Caesar Salad were fresh and excellent. Seafood entrees were superb. Pleasant place , not noisy. Can't wait to go back!

This restaurant is phenomenal. The food, the service (Mike was excellent server), the farm to table concept....it was all wonderful. I'd recommend reservations. The servings were large enough and the prices were excellent. I spent half the amount there compared to the night before and the food at Just Hooked was MUCH better. This needs to be a must visit...

I tried to go during the summer and couldn't get near this place. Luckily we were in the area over Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to get seated right away, though we did go in early. They are open for dinner at 4:30 pm after closing for an hour between lunch and dinner. Our party had the crab dip and... More

Amazing! Anja and Nino were excellent guides. Great exposure to DR culture that is welcomed after sitting around a resort. Home tour included trying local fruits, chocolate and coffee. Horseback riding and zip lining are just the right amount of time. Tour concludes with great lunch at a beach restaurant. Recommend bringing sunscreen and $$ to buy coffee, cacao, etc.
