Although not inexpensive, the food was delicious at Hook-U-Up. We enjoyed the service, found decent wine at a decent price. We liked the casual atmosphere as well.

Don’t let the modest appearance fool you - this chef is the real deal and the food is superb. Much creativity in each meal...tonight the flounder over a bed of squash, quinoa, chard and oysters. The flounder was cooked to perfection. All desserts are fabulous.

Excellent Food. Small restaurant with personalized service. Very welcoming. Delicious soups and salads. Lamb chops were cooked to perfection and way more than I could eat - couple of the guys got to eat one and agreed on the quality.

Located on the main street in Cape Charles this bistro offers a small menu of twists on classic dishes. Well prepared and with good service and a decent wine list. Makes for a nice meal. Recommended.

Awesome dinner & service in a small restaurant. Savored our crab Chesapeake puff pastry appetizer, honey mustard rack of lamb & lemon herb chicken. Our meals were the best ever & reasonably priced. Looking forward to our return.

The menu consists largely, but not exclusively of seafood items. I have no idea what is on their web page. But the chefs cuisine was superb when we were there a week ago.
