the Hook & Plow - Redondo Beach
My BF and I are both on restrictive diets and they accommodated our changes- no problem. Service was excellent. Food all shared and was delicious. We had the poke appetizer, the pear burrata salad and the Chilean sea bass which the subbed out the potatoes for Brussels sprouts. Delish.
The outdoor dining was wonderful, and the food and service were great! My Mom lives in South Bay and stated “I really enjoyed this! I’m glad we found it!!!”
Great customer service. My friends were happy with their dishes but I wasn’t. And I am not a picky eater. And I tasted my friends’ dishes and they were great. I had the shrimp and grits. There was a layer of orange grease from the sausage and the shrimp was overcooked. Also the eggs were drastically over cooked. They were more like hard boiled eggs than sunny side up. Will never order it again…IF I ever eat there again.
The staff was awesome and friendly. The setting was perfect, eating outside.
The food is outstanding! The brick chicken, crab cake, clam chowder and the ceviche was some of the best we have tasted.
Love this place.
Once we were seated, one-half hour after our reservation, service was great and food very good. Our server was really pleasant and efficient. Seems Hook & Plow may be overbooking or just short of staff.
Ambience outside was lovely. We will return.
I had an outside reservation and they sat me inside and said there was 10 people waiting ahead of me for outdoor seating even though I had a specific reservation for outdoor seating. Why even have the option to book indoor or outdoor if when you get there you don’t even get what you want? Very upsetting and not what I reserved.
Really enjoyed our date, the server was awesome and the food was fantastic. I ordered the Tiger Shrimp Fettuccine
Great experience ! Loved our waitress and food was tasty!
Customer service was A1
Food and service were both great! Oysters on the half shell were some of the best we’ve ever had. Salmon poke was delish. Entree was the scallops and clams; scallops were amazing but the clams were just alright. Accompanying bread was a little too grilled (blackened) for me. Wine recommendation by the server was spot-on. Would definitely recommend going!
First time out since Covid! Celebrated with 2 friends I hadn’t seen the whole pandemic! Everything was top notch!
Slow service and error in order.
The food was outstanding! The service was top notch we will definitely come back for dinner. I highly recommend this place a must try!
Consistently delicious every time we go and service is always amazing. Friendly and attentive waitstaff always.
Good food and really nice outdoor area. Service was exceptional. Thank you to Marlene!
Angelina was a superb server!
Great ambience, great service and pet friendly. Also, can’t forget about the food. Had a branzino, it was delicious and perfectly cook.
excellent food, great ambiance, dog friendly, and nice staff. drinks were also amazing.
We got the seafood combination platter. It was outstanding!!
Loved the ambiance so cute and outside seating was perfect for me :) but we did wait a long time for our food that was alright also the waitress came just to take our order and never saw her again we had to ask for water, the check, and to pay with someone else.
We had reserved a table for 6 outdoors. They gave us a table for 4 with 2 additional chairs. They would not add another table for 2 to the table to make it comfortable. They suggested indoors. We opted for it. The table behind us consisted of 6 obnoxiously loud females... we could hardly hear each other
The food is great. Manager could have done better
Great food and excellent service
The only critique I have is that the speakers on the indoor patio are a tad loud for dining, it seemed more appropriate for a bar. The hostess was very polite and gracious to move us to an outside table where it was much easier to have a conversation. Other than that, our server was excellent as was the food. Would definitely come back.
First time at this new location and we couldn’t have been more impressed! The clam bake special of the evening was off the charts. Delicious!
Yummy food and great service!
The food was wonderful and Paula, our waitress, was very good. Thanks. the 4 of us support keeping the tables as is and not giving "back the street" to the city.
The steak sandwich was barely cooked when I asked for medium rare. It was stacked with three half pieces of grilled bread... not easy to eat. Meat was tough aside from being undercooked, not much taste. Husband had the sea bass which he said was good. Kale salad was good as a shared starter. Drinks and service deluged well, very noisy, the Riviera is hopping right now with reduced Covid restrictions. Allow time to find parking on a weekend.
I honestly love coming to this place. I think that there is a combination of environment and food quality that is unmatched. My absolute favorite is the Jalapeno Margarita and the brick chicken. I do not even like chicken but I fell in love with theirs after sharing a place with a friend. Hook and Plow is worth going out of my way for.
Mothers day brunch menu excellent!
Went for Mother's day and birthday - disappointed the server never even acknowledged either. There was nothing special offered either. Food was good but service was impersonal
Was a wonderful experience. Only disappointment is that we were celebrating a birthday which we said numerous time and there was no offer to bring out a dessert which most places do. But it really was an amazing experience otherwise.
Good food, great service, great ambiance.
Everyone working was extremely helpful and patient and our table was ready right at the time I reserved, no waiting at all.
We had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch complete with a starter cheese plate and burrito and breakfast sandwiches.
The service was not great and pretty slow. The drinks were misleading as they are not actual cocktails since they don’t have a liquor license. The food did taste good once we actually got it!
Nice little restaurant for brunch. Limited brunch menu options but everything tasted good.
The food is fantastic and very tasty. I love getting different things each time. I've never eaten at the Redondo location before and it was terrific. Love the ambiance.
Great brunch spot nice staff, love the wine cocktails and the pork belly Benedict was out of this world!
We had only been once before shortly after they opened and didn't know what to expect. The menu was expanded, the staff had the COVID protocols down. The food was great. Thanks.
Arrived for reservation and no one acknowledged me, they were not busy, but we arguing amongst themselves.
Got seated and ordered sliders, fries and a class of wine...
Waitress brought the wine, then the fries. Then came and took my menus. She did not sanitize them, and just put them on the stack with the rest. She did the same to the table near me (there were 4-5 tables filled) and they commented the same as I thought “I guess they don’t want us to order anything else”
Sliders came and were actually raw on the middle and bottom. Like they were never flipped. It was disgusting. I sent them back. After showing a male server who said it was incorrect and apologized. I told him well done (to be on the safest side). They took 15 mins to bring them back... wine was empty and fries were gone. No one asked if I wanted more wine.
I ate one slider which had more blue cheese on it than burger and I like blue cheese but this was intense. Second one was under cooked. I left it.
I paid and left. Would not recommend.
