Reasonably priced and Caribbean atmosphere. Made me feel like I was on vacation. Staff were very cordial and attentive. Met other travelers who were also enjoying outside bar and fresh bay breeze. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stay in the area when visiting family and gave Hooks a try a few months back. One of the worst meals I've ever had. Cold food and looked and tasted like something out of a microwave. We really wanted to like...More
