We had a really great meal at a really good price. The staff was good to deal with and we avoided much of a wait by calling ahead. Loved the bisque. Beware, large portions!

Hooper's is a casual 48 seat seafood restaurant attached to our fresh fish market. Friendly smiling faces, great seafood and a quaint nautically themed café await you when you chose to dine with us. A BYOB, we are open seasonally from March through September.
