“great happy hour!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We got a recommendation from someone in the Isla Blanca RV Park we were staying in. We really enjoyed the happy hour margaritas and appetizers. Johnny is an awesome bartendar. Nice view on the Pier too. We went back for dinner a couple nights later, and once again, we had great service, but the food was just okay.

“Almost as good as Dirty Al's”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Casual restaurant on a fishing pier. Good fried seafood. Falls short on wilted french fries and weak
margaritas. That said, we keep going back.

“Cozy pier with great food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We had dinner here an enjoyed it so much! We had boiled and fried shrimp and I got the steamed king crab legs. Food was great! We didn't get any sides or dessert. Atmosphere is nice fishing/ pirate theme a little touristy but not too much. The pier is narrow so only two rows of tables wide. We got to see dolphins just as the sun set from our table. Enjoyable.

“Seafood restaurant with the best view”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

So, I'll be honest...the signs for the "Hooker" bar was a little off-putting (it is a reference to Capt Hook, but still). However, once we walked through the place, we knew this is were we needed to eat. The restaurant is on the pier and both sides of the restaurant have large windows so that when you are sitting down, you can easily see ocean on both sides of you. The place also has cute decor (some Christmas lights) and metal fish. The food was good. I had the prime rib and my husband had this gigantic Mexican soup with enough fish for like a week ($11). Both were very good. The restaurant reminded me of a New England seafood restaurant (casual) transplanted next to Mexico, kind of like me.
