Been here several times and has always been very good. This time, not so much.
We had a 10 minute gap from when the first meal was brought to the table and the last.
Food was not up to their normal.
Maybe a bad day?

Thank you for the feedback. When we received this, I immediately asked team about it to remedy situation. My apologies and know that it was not normal experience for the night. Yes, I will chalk it up to a bad day and know that it will not happen on your next visit. Thank you for your continued support.

This is a great restaurant. The food was good, great drink selection, and great view of bay..at least from where I was sitting. ,Only issue was my drink. First one came w/ a gnat, which I already know is problematic as they are attracted to some of the simple sugars, etc. But if I saw it after it was served, the wait staff didn't see it? It was easily corrected, so no problem. However, when I ordered a different drink, which came in a martini glass, the server seemed to have a little difficulty balancing the glass where more than some of the drink hit the floor and table. In a rush, I recognize this can happen and but this was quite noticeable. I would return as everything else was good.

We live about 15 minutes from Hook & Vine and it’s been our weekly outdoor go to. The food is consistently good as well as the service. The owners are usually on premise and engaged. There is a new wine and cheese bar next door if you show up early for your table and you have the boardwalk and lovely Chesapeake Bay to encourage you to walk off that dinner.

There are lots of good things on the menu (I often get a pasta dish, and, yum...) This night was a burger night - oh my! Honestly maybe the best burger I've ever had. A good choice of cheeses and other toppings, so your burger can be perfectly your way. The beef itself - so good. So. Good. The only downside was that the half-pound burger didn't leave me room for any of the delish looking desserts I saw other people ordering.
The service was friendly and quick enough. The COVID measures were careful, and the table spacing was good. We ate inside, but the outdoor tables were popular, too. That water view can't hurt! North Beach has a cool vibe, so you'll want to stroll the boardwalk a bit when you're done eating. Eat here. You'll thank me.

The food was great. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and had to wait for our table to become available. We stood in the lobby until close to our reservation time and then were invited to sit at the bar. We eventually went to our table maybe 5 minutes later and had a great meal. We ordered 6 cocktails, 2 appetizers, and 2 entrees. I paid our bill at 5:20 because our waiter was doing a shift change and ordered our last round of drinks. At about 5:30, another waitress came by to ask if we needed anything and inform us that another reservation was upcoming. That was shocking to me. Normally when I book on OpenTable they out stipulations in. I saw none for this place. We would have actually spent more money had we not been rushed out the door. That was the only bad taste I had. Food was great. Just wish there wasn’t an awkward rush out the door.

Hook & Vine was recommended by the owner of the cottage that my husband and I had rented for a week in North Beach. We decided to have lunch there on the last day of our vacation, and it was a wonderful dining experience.

In these COVID-19 times, we felt very safe eating at a table inside the restaurant. The menu was great - we had the deviled eggs appetizer, and my husband had a crab cake sandwich, while I had the shrimp and grits. All of those dishes were excellent, exquisitely prepared and presented. Our waiter was very nice, kind, and unobtrusive.

We loved the decor and the ambiance, and the dining room (as well as the rest rooms) were extremely clean. I give an A+ to Hook & Vine.

Hook and Vine was great. We sat on the front porch (we made a reservation) and it was so peaceful. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. The show winner was the spicy tempura shrimp! I can't wait to go back and try some more.

Had lunch here on a Friday, exploring North Beach and Chesapeake Beach for the first time. Quick, friendly service with a table overlooking the village. My husband had jambalaya that was tasty and my fish and chips were excellent. Had Brussels sprouts as a side - can’t beat them (bacon!). Purchased a 4 bottle wine tasting pack to take home - what a great idea! Would definitely recommend Hook & Vine.
