The Hook & Vine is a very nice local establishment. Great atmosphere, always friendly service and the food has never disappointed. Highly recommended.
Shrimp and Grits ain’t bad either.
Everything was excellent. Great setting - well worth the trip.
This was an enjoyable dining experience great overall. Will be back soon
Thank you - see you soon!
A fantastic place for either a romantic dinner with someone special or a gathering of friends.
Thank you Michael!
Great service and outstanding food.
First time there and we will be back. We all loved the food. Good portions. Very cute place.
Thank you - see you soon!
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.
My favorite place to eat...hands down!!! The staff and the food are incredible. They also take great care to follow ALL CDC guidelines! Love Love 💘
They had saved a lovely table on the porch for us. The crabcake was terrific so were the fries. Very nice choices on the cocktail menu. It was a beautiful spot for a quiet, safe outdoor lunch.
Shrimp tacos & Cajun pasta was delicious! Server was a sweetheart.
The food was awesome! Service was perfect and overall an amazing first impression of Hook and Vine. We will be back!
Excellent service and delicious food. Highly recommend!
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.
Thank you for the feedback - I have shared with your server and will use for training.
We had a fabulous time! Customer service was terrific and the food was delicious.
Crab cakes were perfect. Service was great. Will return
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.
Thank you! We love our little town very much.
Outstanding food - DELICIOUS!!!!!
We enjoyed our appetizer, entree and dessert and would be happy to return there when we are back in town. Parking can be a pain, but there are two open lots within a block.
Help is great, food tasty, selections interesting and yummy, and the price is right!
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.
Thank you - our burgers are pretty fantastic! See you soon.
Nice food and pleasant wait staff.
Love love love the food. The bartenderwhonwas also our waiter was both friendly and attentive!
Thank you Diane!
Eggs and potatoes were cold, cheese wasn't melted. Mimosa was all champagne, very little OJ. Server was great, but overall experience with food, didn't live up to the reviews or prices.
Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your food. I will review with staff to make sure this does not happen again. What did the server do when you told her about the issues? We address any problems immediately on any of the staff's check-ins to table.
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.
Very nice place, service is great , food is very tasty!
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.
This is why we are here - thank you so much for this review. I will share with the staff. North Beach is a great place to stay and glad to here you enjoyed your time with us.
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.
Thank you Kate!
The service was fantastic and the food was even better
My favorite little neighborhood spot!
Everything was amazing!!! The food and service excellent.
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.
Thank you so much! It was great meeting you both. Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and hope you liked the wine! See you soon.
Friendly staff, good service, great food.
Pleasant and friendly. Service was efficient, crab cakes excellent, no rush, a comfortable rainy night dinner on the porch.
The cream of crab soup was fabulous! Our server was extremely helpful.
I really like this place. The pandemic environment did not help to get your best performance marks. I still like the place and the menu selections.
Thanks - we hope that everything returns to normal soon too.
Food was good. They did a great job keeping consumers safe and providing quick service.
This place is a gem! Good food and excellent service! Perfect spot for lunch or dinner!
Delicious meal! Particularly loved the fried green tomatoes. Ambience and decor was lovely. Service was great. I'm out of state, but if I am ever in the area again (and likely will be), I will be sure to have a meal there again.
Thank you so much! Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us. Hope to see you soon.
Nice place, great food, awesome drinks, social distancing measures in place.
