Small place but spotless. Very simple floor plan, chalkboard with menus items plain and simple. Friendly front and kitchen service. Fresh fish and great assortment, made to order FAST! BYOB.

Stopped in to try Off The Hook of Haverstraw since I heard mixed reviews and wanted to give a professional review of how this establishment really is. The restaurant is clean and the staff properly and cleanly dressed. The seating is limited but efficient and...spacious based on the size of the restaurant. The decor is simple yet welcoming. They have enjoyable music playing yet not loud that you cannot have a personal conversation. I like the fact that they have all the fish available as well as the daily specials posted on the wall which is easy to read from anywhere inside. Upon entering, we were warmly greeted by a staff member and asked if we were dining in or taking out. Our response was we were staying but not sure what we wanted. He asked us to take a seat and would bring us menus. We started with the two soup specials of Spicy Squash and Shrimp & mushroom. The Spicy Squash was velvety smooth with a subtle hint of banana which enhanced the creamy rich texture and taste. The Shrimp & Mushroom soup was extremely flavorful. A light fish broth with pleanty of bite sized shrimp and big slices of fresh mushrooms, carrots, parsnip and celery. Both bowls are enough to share among two people each bowl. Next we had the Catfish & chips. The fish was lightly battered with their special secret family recipe and deep fried at the perfect temperature locking in the moisture of the fish while crisping the outside. The fish is not oily at all. The coating is delicious and not salty like other fast food restaurants serve. The fish is fresh and not the prepacked frozen pieces served elsewhere. The chips are fresh cut fries deep fried crisping the outside and leaving a soft potato texture on the inside. Like the fish, they are neither salty nor oily. We then had the fried Tilapia and Red Snapper, served with their homemade Tartar Sause, with sides of Collard Greens, Macaroni and cheese, Yams, Homemade Potato Salad, Corn Bread. The Tilapia and Red Snapper were perfectly friend again in their secret recipe batter. It is amazing to see the chefs being consistent in their frying. I have never been to an establishment where every variety of fish came out perfectly fried and moist while at the same time leaving the natural flavor of the fish. They have truly mastered their skills. The collard greens were tasty yet the standard collard greens. The potato salad was homemade and one that I wouldn't hesitate to order a large tray if I was having a party. They remind me of the type my family would make at family events. The macaroni and cheese was a perfection and made with real fresh cheese, not that Velveeta or Kraft type stuff. This is a must try. The yams were perfectly cooked with the right amount of cinnamon enhancing their natural sweetness. Finally, the corn bread, two large pieces, was an average corn bread yet at the same time one I would order again. They were not a dry dense type of bread. We ended dinner with their family desserts. The Banana Pudding was a delicious banana pudding with big pieces of banana served on top of a moist homemade banana bread rather than the vanilla wafers other restaurants and diners use. This is a must try. The second must try is their warm homemade bread pudding. I must say it definitely is a different type of bread pudding. It is not that soggy, over custard type of dessert. This is one I would be proud of if my mother made it. Third ranking is their warm homemade sweet potato pie. It would also be great as a side dish. Finally, their homemade lemon pound cake is one I must say stands out above all others elsewhere. The lemon flavor is not overpowering like that lemon Pledge type nor like that sour lemon meringue pie. It definitely enhances and blends the flavors of the homemade ingredients if warmed for thirty seconds in a microwave. The staff was warm, welcoming, and made us feel like part of their family. Our waiter Rahim who was polite and extremely knowledgeable of all the items and preparation of the foods, graciously took the time to explain what was in their side dishes so not to conflict with the observing of our Lent fasting. Avian, the owner, took his time to go to tables and check on all the customers to make sure everything was to their satisfaction while at the same time working the register, taking orders, running tickets, clear tables, and correcting a takeout customers order that accidentally got mixed up when another customer took the wrong order with them. I was impressed with how he went out of the way to correct it and make it right for the customer at the same time doing everything else. The hostess and cashier, Flerida, who greeted every customer with a warm welcoming smile surly makes the place brighter. Finally, the chefs Jharold and Shavon get my upmost respect and praise to have mastered their skills and whom I'd be proud to have working at my establishment. Off The Hook of Haverstraw is a great Family owned restaurant offering their extended family (the customers) great flavorful food at extremely affordable prices. This is a must visit spot.More

Like this place for it's simplicity and yummy eats. We order the Tiger Shrimp combos, which come with french fries. No table service...it's a counter where you order and take a seat. Take out orders are part of the gig here, as well. Ethnic favs...are available. Good seafood cooked fresh when you order it.More

Great fish, shrimp and chips. They most always have whiting and tilapia at a set price. Other species (and prices) vary by season and market rate. It's NOT fine dining.... but it is fantastic finger-food- and a fair price. Two dinners (around $25) gets you...enough fish/chips to feed two very hungry adults-- or a modestly hungry family of four.More

did not even half the fish that was on the menu. Place is dirty. Left out tartar sauce that is mayo based. This is a critical violation.

Greasy fried fish. Been here twice and was not impressed either time. Kind of a low end fish shop. Nothing special.

We went for the Fish Fry, but we're pleasantly surprised by the fried chicken wings and Po' Boy Sandwiches. Available fish is listed on a chalkboard. The Whiting is recommended and the most popular. The family home recipe batter makes for a lighter and less...greasy fry. In addition to Jerk Chicken, there are selection of homemade sides available in addition to the chips. We tried the Mac & Cheese, Collard Greens and Banana Pudding. In a shopping center, it is a small family owned restaurant. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Limited seating as it primarily a takeout place. The wait for your order will be longer than a fast food place as everything is prepared to order.More
