Welcome To Just Hooked

Just Hooked is a restaurant with a creative cuisine and an energizing atmosphere in Fenwick Island, DE.

Owners Steve Hagen and Kevin Frey have teamed up to create a second restaurant, Just Hooked, that follows in the footsteps of Off The Hook focusing on local seafood and produce. Just Hooked truly honors the idea of Farm-Ocean-Table by providing guests with fresh caught seafood and locally grown produce, resulting in some of the most creative and palate pleasing meals along the Delaware coast. The comfortable environment combined with the open kitchen and full bar area creates both an intimate and exciting dinner experience. Just Hooked has quickly become a “must go to location” for the seasonal crowd while still meeting the needs of the local community. The concept of “farm-ocean-table” becomes a reality here as the chefs are constantly inspired by the plethora of fresh flavors creating culinary masterpieces centered around seasonal fare, creativity, and comfort.

Owners, Steve Hagen and Kevin Frey, began Indian River Seafood Company in 2010. Their vision was to offer residents of and visitor to the Quiet Resorts of Delaware the freshest seafood, innovative cuisines, and exceptional service. In 2010, Indian River Seafood Company opened its first restaurant, Off The Hook. After a very successful first year, the company expanded by opening its second location Just Hooked in 2011. Now in 2013, they have done it again with Hooked in Ocean City, MD.

Going beyond just supporting local farmers, local fisherman, and other local purveyors, Indian River Seafood Company supports The Center for Inland Bays. There are numerous events during the year that focus on raising funds to support this worthy cause. Additionally, Just Hooked and Off The Hook are part of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce http://www.bethany-fenwick.org

Had the best Fish Stew that any restaurant ever served. And the rest of the menu is just as good.

I love Just Hooked. Fish tacos at the bar for lunch are a steal and house wines are great. Fab specials in the evening.

Being from Wyoming I may not be the best judge of seafood, however everyone at our table raved about the calamari! I don't care for calamari, but my husband who has eaten calamari all over the states declared it the best he had ever had. We were lucky and came on the night where the wine was half price! I had the crab cakes which were excellent. We came for an early dinner so it was not yet busy so the service was great. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable. If I lived anywhere near Fenwick Island I would definitely come back!

After an extended walk to Gordon's Pond in the Park, we were hungry! So we could not think of a place in Rehoboth so we travelled to a Bethany Beach. However, the restaurant we had in mind was closed; either for the season or not for lunch. So we travelled to Fenwick Island, and saw cars at Just Hooked. Let's try it....

There were about 10-12 people in there as it was approaching 2:30 pm. Really nice decor with a large bar area; 3 TVs around it and white linen table cloths for lunch--bingo!!

We shared an order of whole Jerk chicken wings (2 each) which were good, but could have cooked a little longer. My husband ordered two tacos--1 fish and 1 shrimp and I ordered fish and chips. My husband said that they were the best tacos he had eaten and believe me he has eaten a lot! As for myself, I am not a coleslaw or tarter sauce eater, but here they both were great. I could not believe that I actually enjoyed them with the fresh lightly fried 3 very large pieces of Cod!

We are "Just Hooked" and will return as our waitress, Ashley, shared that they were open all year! They offer at least 8 draft beers, but we did not indulge today, but will on our next visit! A really great lunch!

The best calamari ever so tender a must have. Had the shrimp it was wonderfully seasoned and very fresh. The staff was equally as wonderful attentive a very friendly

Awesome shrimp tacos. Food is made to order using fresh local ingredients. Service is awesome. Family run and owned.

Went for happy hour. Great prices. Excellent apps esp. boom boom shrimp. Light breading with a spicy mayo. Simple decorating--no frills coastal vibe. Great mixed playlist. Will go back for dinner when we're at the beach again.

by Jennifer C. on Just Hooked

Some of the best food that I have had in years. My steak was perfect, and the calamari was to die for! Super fresh original combinations of incredible seafood, with super huge shrimp. I would recommend it to everyone.

by Leeuh82 on Just Hooked

The most delicious seafood! The scallop dish is a must have! It is served with grits (which I never had before) and I wanted to substitute it for something else but the server stated the grits completed the dish and I agreed to keep it the same. Best decision ever! Highly recommended. My husbands salmon was also cooked to perfection. The pricing is very reasonable for such amazing food. This restaurant is small and quaint and perfect for date night.

Keeping it simple- go there, sit at the bar near the kitchen and watch the chef and staff make magic. Favorites: buttery and tender scallops! Amazing French toast bread pudding with hints of bacon and a cinnamon ice cream scoop to boot...or the basic fish and chips - not sure anything on the menu is a bad choice --Will be back
