My wife and I stayed a night along the Erie shoreline and found this local gem. As soon as we sat at the bar mid afternoon, the owners greeted us and made us feel right at home. This quintessential small town bar is a surefire...More

We were visiting family from out of town and wanted a spot we could eat, talk and unwind. The view is spectacular. The restaurant is rundown and dirty. We walked in to find a seat yourself sign. We sit down but are told to move...More

Hoaks is a family staple in the Town of Hamburg. Great little place right on the water with seafood and other favorites. Always pleasant service and great food. Friday and Saturdays can get quite backed up during summer so plan accordingly.

Nice place, nice view, friendly and efficient wait staff (Rebecca especially), and all around good place for a casual meal. Plenty of seafood choices - that is why we went there. The broiled Red Snapper was delicious and perfectly cooked.

Friendly staff and a bar that's been there for decades. We only had beers and French fries, but the view of the lake was stunning and the beer cold and fresh. We'd definitely stop in again. Cool memorabilia on the walls too is a bonus.

We lived in western NY several years ago which is known for superb "Fish Fries." And Hoak's is up there with the best of the best. Whenever we have the opportunity to be in the area, Hoak's is on our calendar.

Friendly local spot directly on the shore of Lake Erie with a view of a wind farm and downtown Buffalo. Seating outside on the deck is great. Relaxing too. Stick with the fish dinner, from our experience. Large piece of batter dipped fried haddock, and...More
