Rustic outdoor or small indoor dining. Order at the counter and pick up food. Fish was fresh and reasonably priced. I felt the portions were on the large side. Service was attentive. I look forward to returning

Good fresh fish at a reasonable price. Everything was made fresh to order. The shrimp boil was excellent. I had the grilled salmon which was also very good and the fried shrimp were perfect. Skip the hush puppies. They were doughy and bland.

Hook Line N Sinker continues to be one of the best Golf Coast sea food restaurants in the area. Try the trout and don't miss the coleslaw.

Raised in the deep south I know fried fish and oysters. This was mediocre at best. Corn meal type coating that had more taste than what we were told was catfish. The strangest hush puppies I've ever had!! Shrimp was dry and almost hard. Oysters...More
