Hooked in Montauk Celebrates One Year Anniversary

Eat like a local! There are so many reasons why Hooked Montauk is one of my favorite eateries out east. From the freshest seafood to some of the friendliest service around, Hooked reels in healthy and satisfying salads, grilled, fish and poke bowls, to our East End classics such as their to-die-for lobster roll, local steamers, and ‘off the hook’ plates such as their BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Grilled Chicken Sandwich. It is everything you crave and more this summer season. A trip to the beach or park is just not the same without takeout from Hooked.

Hooked is offering a lobster roll special for those looking to bring lunch to the beach in a timely manner. Place your order for take-out before you arrive and enjoy a lobster roll and beverage for a special price. Hooked is located near many beaches making it easy and accessible for those traveling without a vehicle.

With a focus on lobster, discover one of my new must-try dishes for the season, the Tom Lob (pictured below): vine ripened tomato stuffed with lobster salad ($25). They also serve lobster mac and cheese which has been a crowd favorite, a lobster salad roll served with coleslaw, and whole local steamed lobster served with mussels and corn. Owners and long-time locals Brian and Gillian Mooney know how to curate a menu that is perfect for everyone from seafood lovers and those who are health conscious to those who favorite ‘land’ fare and love to dig in to exceptional food that is served up fast.

Additional must-try, signature dishes are their Lobster Bisque, Kick’n Crab and Corn Chowder, and Grilled Mahi Mahi served as a sandwich with fries or over greens.

Hooked in Montauk is currently open seven days a week from 11:30am. The restaurant is also available for preparing food for parties of up to 20 people.

Claudio’s Crabby Jerry’s

In addition to our visit to Ralph’s Italian Ice, we also wanted to eat dinner in Greenport during our day-long visit instead of eating when we got back to the South Fork. We chose to eat at Claudio’s Crabby Jerry’s, a casual eatery right on the harbor with breathtaking views of Shelter Island across the way and of the boats passing by. I love Greenport’s seaside harbor, especially when they bring in the tall ships every summer.

When we arrived, there were plenty of tables to sit at and the line to order our food was not too long (about five parties ahead of us). We had plenty of room to for the stroller and we were able to get a table with a perfect view of the marina. We were surprised initially that the place was not as crowded as we expected for dinner, but we assumed too soon; after five minutes of sitting down and eating our meals, a wave of customers flowed in to the eatery, creating a line of at least twenty or so hungry individuals. That was at 5:20 pm.
