“Best place to eat in Ocean City MD.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Nicely decorated with original art work. Friendly, professional staff. Well managed. Great atmosphere and a nice change from the typical overpriced, mediocre restaurants in Ocean City. Menu was a nice variety. I had the salmon with fresh vegetables, my husband the fish and chips and my son ordered chicken tenders off the kids menu. We also got the Arugula salad that we shared. Portion size was just right for all and we all enjoyed our meal. It's a go back place if we are ever in Ocean City again. They serve food that is fresh and local. They do not take reservations so we went early. Most tables were empty at first but filled up within the hour. This is one place that would be worth a wait. Give it a try.

“Hooked on Hooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

If you want ree-ly fresh seafood and veggies done with a first-rate chef's flair, this is the place! The food was the best I've had in Ocean City. It's rated high, which is why I went - but didn't expect it to be as good as it was! They have all local suppliers; and apparently the best. Before you try any other "Crab House" or seafood restaurant in OC, go here!

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Hooked was a wonderful break from the endless poor quality buffet restaurants you find all over OC. The seafood is fresh and delicious. My husband and I first started out sharing a crab dip appetizer. It was really good, and had huge chunks of crab in it! It came with fresh made, warm kettle chips. Yum! Next the server brought us some warm focasia bread which was also very good. We both ordered the scallop entree. It was so delicious, the best scallops we've ever had.They were served on top of cheesy grits with some pieces of pork mixed in with some corn and a broth. It was so good! The portions were large. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again!

“So delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

What a nice surprise in midtown. My husband and I stopped in to try the seafood. Everything was perfect. We started with drinks. He had the strawberry mojito. I had the peach margarita. These drinks were so good! The crab, corn, and bacon flatbread was the perfect combination and size for an appetizer. The scallops were scrumptious. The crab cakes were delicious and meaty. We will definitely be back!
