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 exception 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
