We went to Hooked without making a previous reservation but they found a table for us even though it was a busy Sunday (St. Patrick’s weekend). The menu offered a wide variety of delicious starters, main courses and drinks. We ordered fish and chips and seafood linguine and everything we ate was fresh and delicious. The brownie we had for dessert was great too. The service accompanied the high quality of the cooking. The waitresses came around to check on our experience and they seemed to be authentically engaged. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Super impressed with their ability to do a wide range of seafood so well. The mussels were fantastic as were the fish and chips. The daily specials, in this case the spicy prawn mac n cheese and the scallop and bacon fish cake were also delicious. Service was warm and friendly too, making the little bit of a wait--they do a banging carry out service--well worth it!

Absolutely amazing seafood. We had the gluten free fish and chips and calamari with salad and both were superb. The side veggies were fresh and tasty and we also enjoyed the cider from Galway. Service was friendly. Overall I have no hesitation recommending this place. It's booked on a first come/waiting list basis but we got lucky with a table for two and sat immediately. The food practically came instantly. They also do takeout if you lack patience 😅. Hell yeah I'm hooked.

Our new favourite fish and chips when visiting Galway! Friendly and efficient service with a smile from the young lady at the order window, followed 15 minutes later by generous portions of perfectly twice cooked chips and succulent, flaky, melt in your mouth cod. Would happily drive up from Limerick just for dinner here.
