Good food, but dissappointed with...

I purchased a restaurant.com certificate to use at Hooks. I don't think they really like folk using the certificate, but honor it just for the business. I assumed that market rate would be around 17.95 - 20.95 for our meal and was on a very tight buget for vacation, so our meal for a family of four would be close to $83 with the coupon, but it was still $101 b/c they included a large gratuity charge for the wait staff who was only carrying drinks and cleaning off the table. We didn't ask her for much because it was a buffet. Gratuity amounted to $18; I was planning to tip 10% which would have been sufficient for what she was doing. I was waiting to post a comment to Restaurant.com, but apparently Hooks never called the certificate in. I also didn't feel comfortable being asked to present the certificate prior because I felt like it gave them a chance to charge more for our meal just because we had a certificate. I felt this way b/c they asked specifically if you had a restaurant.com certificate. Food good, but don't think I will return b/c of my experience with the certificate. The added charges can make a major difference on a tight budget.


GreatFood And Price

My wife and friends are from up state NY and eat many times a year or each time we visit SC and find HOOKS to be the best eating in town. We also find the price right each time we go in Febuary of each year thanks again for the good food.


Hook's - the best in Myrtle Beac

We have been coming to Hook's Calabash for the past three summers when we are on vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC. It is by far the BEST seafood buffet in the area! We eat there at least twice the week we are there and will continue!! Best when you have the coupon for $$ off before 4 and 5PM.
