“Almost like being on the Cape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

My husband wanted a lobster for his birthday, and we didn't want a lot of fuss,so we thought we'd go to the Fish Hook. It was a winter Tuesday evening and I wasn't really sure if things would be up to their summer standards. When I realized we were one of only three tables, i thought "uh oh."

Shouldn't have worried.

The lobster was great; I had grilled shrimp scallops and chicken Cajun style.
The main dishes were great: They do seafood.

BUT: the sides?

What a treat! My husband had roasted potatoes and they were roasted [ you'd be surprised how many places microwave them]. Small round, in the skin and so tasty we actually put 2 of them in the doggy bag to take home and eat later. The coleslaw was fresh and had a hint of horseradish, even the fries were wonderful.

They've redone the booths and now use real plates and silverware, but they haven't lost that casual, coming in from a hard day at the beach feel. Difficult to pull off as they are on a very busy corner just outside Northampton.

Good simple food, well prepared, casual comfortable atmosphere.

Go. Pretend it's summer on the Cape.

“Fresh fish fast...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Websters has been a staple in Northampton for decades. Known to locals as a fresh fish fast restaurant, their menu hasnt changed for ever. Decor and layout is old. Food is so ewhat pricy for the style of reataurant, but the taste and portions of the food more then make up for the downfalls. Do i recommend this restaurant right off of exit 18 on RT91? You bet cha. Next door to the tail trail for biking, ice cream in the summer...country garden center. Lots to do in a short amount of time...

“Craved good fish and stopped for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We were hungry and wanted seafood for lunch. I got the baked stuffed cod, salad bar and roasted potatoes. Fish was good. Stuffing part was ok, very buttery. Potatoes were good. Salad bar was fresh and cucumber in dill dressing was really good. Macaroni salad was good. Veggies for the green salad were all very fresh and delish. Good choices for dressings for your salad. Hubs had the catfish. It was good. Clam chowder was thick and creamy. Definitely left full and happy.

“Dig Those Clams”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is a good place for fish but only if you don't cook it yourself at home. The prices are quite high for what you get. Don't get a dinner unless you want a lot of french fries. Me when I go out for fish or clams, I want fish or clams. Not fillers. Be careful when you buy a pint of clams because you get a lot of coated fried crumbs in place of some of the clams. I think Jack August Seafood Restaurant was much, much better back in the day. Still if you really want the best fish, go to the store and buy some fresh cod and bake it at home or a tuna steak at home on the grill. Webster's Fish Crook Restaurant can't match that.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had lunch here today. We both ordered the fish hook combo and it SUCKED. I swear it
Was just like frozen fish. The grease taste was over bearing the flavor and too much breading.
Not good at all don't waste your time or money.
