Raw oysters and the grilled trout are my favorites. The whole menu is good, you won't be disappointed if you like seafood.

The flavor of the food was very bland to me. Reminded me of a chili's version of long John silvers. Nice staff and decent amount of options.

We tried this place for the first time June 28, 2016 with friends. When we were walking up, my wife said, "Are you kidding me? You don't even like seafood!" to which I replied, "Hey... It looks like a place I want to try!" We were all glad we did. The fried catfish and fried okra were quite good, and... More

We've eaten here & it never disappoints. From the grilled shrimp to the fried catfish we've liked it all. The grilled veggies are good & the French fries are ok too. Parking can be a bit tricky but it's worth the effort.

My wife and I ate here and were not impressed with the original flavor. You have a choice of flavors for your shrimp and catfish. But we loved the creole flavor. The tartar sauce was not good, but the cocktail sauce was great. Oysters were the best.

Enjoyed a nice dinner of Cajon shrimp on the patio along with a Purple Haze beer, what better way to start a weekend.

I do go to Hook Line N Sinker, to get my fix of very well prepared seafood. A very simple seating area, and a nice collection of vintage outboard motors, all around the site.

The fish dish and shrimp taco were very tasty and their service was very nice. The manager will provide inside information of the sea food season. Very pleasant eating experience. Will return some other time.

My parents loved the fish and salad, here, but I got a fried platter, and thought it was okay. Great food for the price though and in a nice, "yuppy" sort of neighborhood. Definitely worth it. Rustic "bbq" sort of atmosphere, but clean and nice people. Seems to be home-made. Give it a try!

Thank naneliz
