Four of us girls were in Wildwood, NJ for a race and wanted to try a local place for seafood. Reading previous reviews, we all agreed to stop here for dinner. What a great decision! We pulled up and instantly got the "food truck" feel and LOVED it! The owners, Bill and Michelle, said they were only opened for the second day of the season. We all ordered their fish tacos and some clam chowder. All of it was delicious! The chowder is more broth based than cream based and was excellent. You didn't get the "concrete" in your tummy feel after eating it, which is always a bonus! While we ate at a picnic table outside by the boats, Bill sat with us and explained the fascinating job of fishing for all sorts of fish. It was truly a great experience listening to his stories, philosophies, and total love for what he does. You appreciate the fish you're eating a little bit more knowing what all goes into bringing it to your plate. The next day after our race we stopped by for lunch and had HUGE steamed shrimp and fried crab cakes. The fried part was very light and didn't over power the wonderful flavor of the crab. The remoulade sauce that came with the crab cakes was tasty...a little kick to it which was just enough. Again, Bill sat and talked with us and told us stories. We also had a chance to talk with his 13 yr old son, Will, who was very pleasant and expressed his love for fishing as well. Quite the young gentleman!
Running throughout Wildwood we saw plenty of places to eat but they were your typical "tourist" food that you find anywhere. Hooked Up is not your typical place to eat and offers not only amazing food but also a chance to talk with a great fisherman and his family. You can't miss the red and blue building as you're coming into town...truly a great place to stop! Thanks Bill and Michelle for giving us a tour and helping with directions! We hope to come back to try the ahi tuna!
