“A Must Stop!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We drove by the trailer last year and didn't stop but were intrigued. So this year while on vacation we made a point of stopping to try it out... It was one of the BEST meals we had all week! You can easily eat on-site at one of the picnic tables out back by the waterway but we decided to get the food to go and bring it back to our hotel because it was a hot day. Everything was made fresh to order (you can call in advance to order because, depending on the number of people ordering, it can be a little of a wait). The clams cooking smelled so amazing and tasted even better. We also had the fried flounder and it was so good - the kids even stole off our plates! The onion rings were fabulous - just a tiny bit of heat to them which I loved! But the BEST was the clam chowder! It, too, was made fresh to order - the cream was added just before serving. And it wasn't one of those thick chowders, it was the real deal...a creamy, thin broth but a chunky soup full of tender clam pieces, salted pork chunks, potatoes and vegetables. I could've eaten the pint by myself and I'm a tough chowder critic! We will definitely return next year and have already recommended the stop to other vacationers heading to the Wildwoods this year!

“Freshest seafood anywhere”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great venue, outdoor"trailer" using only the freshest ingredients , on the waterway with the boat DEFIANCE arriving every week or so unloading the best of fresh fish, great crabs, small menu but enough for anyone who enjoys a fresh "shore" dinner. Fish tacos, the best flounder anywhere..
Super soup, ect ect. Try it. You'll go back again and again

“Incredibly Likeable Place!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Wildwood is a regular work stop for me, and with it, is Hooked Up Seafood! The food here is as fresh as it gets! The Clam Chowder is my usual favorite, although there's plenty of other great dishes on the menu.

Special mention to the staff. They're friendly and warm!

“The BEST Seafood!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We recently spent a week in Wildwood-One of our greatest surprises was Hooked Up Seafood!

It's just a trailer, but? It sits on the waterway with the fishing boats behind it-I gather that whatever was caught from those boats? Is what's on the menu!

We ordered a dozen crabs-And? When you see a picture of: "The Perfect Crab Dinner?" THAT'S what we got-We also ordered the flounder platter and fish tacos.....Everything was AMAZING-and? FRESH!!!!!!! Seating is on picnic tables right by the water and the boats-It's PERFECT!!!!!

We'll DEFINATELY be coming back!!!!!

“So So So Good”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband LOVES THIS PLACE. The owners are so warm and welcoming. We go back every year and on our last visit, the owner gave my husband Hooked Up shirt. Thanks Hooked Up for "hooking" us up!
