We frequent Hoak’s on the lake often. This has been a family staple for 15+ years. The wait staff is very attentive to all of our needs, and the food is always delicious. We are never disappointed. Their fish fries are very succulent to the last bite, one of the best fish fries in Western New York. Their Homemade potato salad is one of the best I have ever tasted! While we dine in the summer months on their patio, the breathtaking sunset is second to none. During the winter months, we enjoy coming to see the storm move in on the lake and watch the waves crash into the building. The hostess is always very friendly. In the summer, she asks if “we would like to stay in, or go outside and sit on the patio.”
Cannot wait to come back again!

Dirty and poor wait staff, they could put a little $$$ into the place. We used to enjoy dining here but I can stay home a make a better diner myself & not deal with an unpleasant waitress

If you don't know what a Friday nite fish fry or a beef on weck should taste like, go here first, then compare against the rest of WNY. Get your Blue's in the bottle, the tap is a bit on the warm side.

With so many meals on the road and all too many bouts of indigestion behind us, Hoaks was truly the proverbial shining light in the night. The homey atmosphere and gracious hostess and wait staff made us feel welcome and attended to our every need.
The fish fry was outstanding!! Tender fish breaded and cooked to perfection was served in a portion large enough to sate any appetite. Sides of cole slaw, fries and excellent tartar sauce complimented the feast.
If you should find yourself in or within 100 miles of Hamburg, NY don't miss the opportunity to treat yourself to this true delight.

Hoak's has been around forever and there's a reason. They've always served excellent seafood in a friendly, pub-type atmosphere. It's an informal place but I'd recommend reservations.
