We were in the mood for seafood and immediately thought of Hoopers for crab legs, so off we went. Two of our party had the crab legs, and two of us had the special...broiled monk fish served with homemade mashed sweet potatoes and green beans with red onions and peppers, topped with their homemade pineapple salsa. It was just wonderful,... More

My family looks forward to eating at Hoopers every time we return to Brigantine. The fish is always fresh and the portions are huge. My favorite is the Ahi Tuna with jumbo shrimp and asian slaw. The servers and owner are super friendly and accommodating too!

My husband and I had dinner here. It's very small inside. Service was fine. Our waitress came to our table to take our order and she sounded bored and unenthusiastic. I ordered the broiled seafood platter. It came with s salad which was very small. It had 3 scallops which were small; a lobster tail which was a bit chewy;... More

Hoopers is a small Resturant only open summertime. Next door is their take out and if you want to eat in (takeout) a better buy. Should you want really good seafood drive Out to Oyster Creek Resturant ,

The food was really excellent. There were 7 people in our group that went to the restaurant. The seafood was so fresh. Everyone had something different and all enjoyed their meals. I would recommend and we would go back again!!!

We recently purchased a beach house over the winter in Brigantine NJ. Prior to Brigantine we used to rent a summer house in Sea Isle City, NJ. When we started meeting locals in Brigantine, they highly recommended that we visit Hooper's Seafood. I am originally from New England and I used to love going to small local seafood restaurants. When... More

This was our best dinner of our week in at the beach. The seafood is fresh and well cooked, and the staff is fabulous. My family is definitely returning!

Perhaps we didn't order well. But the food we got was edible but not particularly tasty. The shrimp bisque tasted like clam chowder. I told the waiter and he pointed out that it didn't have clams. Well it didn't have shrimp or shrimp flavor either. The grilled ahi was charred and the ravioli with grilled shrimp special was drowning in... More
