Hook Line & Schooner is consistent, fresh seafood one of the more high quality take out meals you are going to get in the Smyrna/Vinings area. Don't be afraid to order seafood takeout. They do it right. Covid precautions are very well followed. We had...shrimp and grits and blackened grouper and they were wonderful. Sides are always great, highly recommend the brussel sprouts but smashed potatoes are good as well. They are also open for dining in. Just a great meal.More

Always one of my favorites in the Smyrna. We ordered takeout on Labor Day evening. Covid precautions were very well done. Pretty busy with take out, had patio seating and bar seating social distancing being followed. I did not notice anyone eating in the dining...room. Food was great, grilled fish tacos, and grilled shrimp tacos very fresh and tasty. Brussel Sprout side is a must. Appetizer of mussels was huge and very good. Did not receive my side of slaw. And the discount I applied on line did not come off. I even called to make sure it would come off but it didn't. Really need to nail order accuracy and proper billing.More

So Coronavirus blocked us from dining in, so we did take-out. We both opted for the choose 3, catfish, scallops and shrimp. It comes with cloeslaw, fries and hushpuppies, but I got a loaded backed potato and grilled corn on the cob. All of the...seafood was lightly breaded and had a good season, not too overbearing or underdone. The catfish was filleted and a nice thick piece. The shrimp and scallops were all a good size. The fries were really good, didn't appear to have been the frozen variety. The hushpuppies were really good too. We still have a slice of Italian Rum cake, can't wait to get into that or to get back to Hook Line & Schooner when we can dine in.More

I've been to Hook Line & Schooner three times now, and each time was absolutely wonderful! The seafood is amazing, the service is great, and the cakes - yum! Will definitely make this my "regular" seafood spot in Smyrna.

I will never go back and what a shame...we are HUGE seafood eaters and really looked forward to this place coming here. The fish tasted old; neither my husband nor I could take more than a bite and we sent it back. We told the...server why, she didn’t offer a substitute and she left it on our bill. Unbelievably poor service. The chowder or stew or whatever it was tasted like flour soup and had obviously been reheated and someone had attempted at thickening it again. I’ve never had my expectations so destroyed at a new restaurant. I see they have commercials now on local TV and every time I say “Never Again”.More

Two couples, 7:30 Thurs. evening. Located in shopping area for large Condo-Apts complex. Took a couple of drive a round's for a parking spot. Seated in booth immediately, very friendly staff and very attentive and efficient. Ordered dozen oysters on half shell, $1 bargain, just...as good as some $3-$6 ones I've had. Shared Calamari and hush puppies, Mahi Mahi Sandwich, Fried Oysters, and blackened snapper, came with 2 sides and salad. Great, as was everyone's dinner and drinks. Will visit again.More

Four family members went out to lunch the other day. Three of us had fish and chips and one of us had salmon and a salad. She definitely got the best deal. We were comparing notes afterwards and those of us who had fish and...chips realized that we all had the same complaint: although the chips, coleslaw, and hush puppies were totally acceptable, the fish was undercooked. Since my son and daughter-in-law live in the area, there is a possibility that I may return to this restaurant at some future date; however, I will make sure I have something rather than the fish and chips.More

Ample close of parking, lot across from the establishment. The cars are not on top of each other. Outdoor seating of patrons with comfortable room, and seating. Upon entering the hostess was cordial. Very clean and inviting atmosphere. Service was great, and attentive waitress and...food staff. Food was fresh cooked. The menu was diverse and intriguing. Rich textures, colorful decor, deliciousness, and the food was perfect. Cordial state, great food, great establishment. I wish it was closer to my house. It’s about 45 miles. I am close to Alabama.More

We recently dined here for dinner. The atmosphere is lazy beach vibe and informal. The location makes you think it will be fancy. The prices are decent considering portion size and quality. I recommend the I’m so hoisted drink, the Orange Blossom was a good...bang for your buck if you like Champagne. I recommend the HLS oysters and lobster ravioli. The stuffed salmon was too much breading in the stuffing. The service was great there. Everyone from the runners, to the owner, to the waiters was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Chelsea!!!! Overall, I will be back to try more menu items.More
