Took my Daughter there for her birthday. She wanted crabs. We got a dozen crabs tacos fried chicken and chicken fingers for the kids. Bill was 250 dollars. The crabs were not great some looked like the shell was burnt but they were undercooked. I...know it's not the season but damn you should known how to cook them. Not againMore

Been driving past Hoopers for years and never gave it a thought. With Covid closing many eateries, we were looking for a good place to eat and pulled into Hooper. Great surroundings, professional staff, and great food made the trip more than worthwhile. Sitting on...the water with the city across the way was great scenery. I’m thinking in the summer with water activities, will make this the place to be. We will return.More

It was terrible. Seafood was cold and the crabs were light. Plus, for all you can eat they only bring a couple of crabs at a time. All the food was cold and the shrimp was overcooked. The hush puppies were bland and did not...look like hush puppies.More

All you can eat was terrible Shrimp and corn 100 sat and was cold. And as a all.you can eat you expect a constant flow of crabs. They only give you 3 at a time.

The meal was awful. We had spent $120 and left hungry. Blue crabs are a waste of money, the lobster was tough and tasteless. The corn on the cob tastes like field corn. Poor service as well.

We visited this restaurant while staying in Ocean City, Maryland. Everything was delicious and prices were fair. We were social distanced well and had great service. I would definitely go back. I had Fried Shrimp, delicious! My daughter had their Crab stuffed pretzel and she...loved it.More

Went to Hooper’s for lunch (12:15ish). Their hours were listed as open. We I arrived, I was sent outside to Sneaky Pete’s for seating. It was a 30 min wait (with about 15 people behind me) with no where to wait. I left. If it’s...off season and you’re hoping to go for lunch, call to confirm that Hoopers is actually open and not sending you to the much smaller place. It was a bit frustrating for the long wait (w nowhere to wait in the rain) w an entire restaurant sitting empty. A little misleading to say open when technically they aren’t.More

We went here because it was recommended as kid friendly with great food. I have a 2 year old. I don’t know if it’s the time of year but as soon as we went in we were directed to go outside by the hostess, which...I thought was weird. We went to the dock where there was a red pavilion. That’s where everyone was sitting. It was a 25 minute wait so I asked where we could sit to wait and the hostess said to wait on the dock. We tried but it was a narrow dock with only one tall safety railing. Very easy for our toddler to fall/jump off and into the water. After about 10 minutes I went to the hostess station to see if maybe we could wait indoors or on the balcony, somewhere not directly on the water. I waited for a while but the hostess was no where to be found. I’m sure it would be great for a group of adults but if you have small children it’s not safe. We ended up leaving, very disappointed because I heard the food was excellent here.More

We ordered a half bushel of #2s for takeout as they were out of #1s when we got there. The prices were good compared to other places in the area, but every single crab was mushy and not edible except for a few claws. I...was thinking it was just a bad batch but reading other reviews on here it sounds like a common theme. We called and told them and left our phone number for a manager to call back so hopefully can get a refund. Get your crabs from elsewhere in OC.More
