[image-1]Hooked Seafood opens this Tues. March 26 at 4 p.m. in the building formerly occupied by the Noisy Oyster on the corner of East Bay and Market. The Noisy Oyster closed over the holidays for renos.

Local restaurateurs Wade Boals, Brett Yearout, and Joel Olindo, the same team who opened Saltwater Cowboys on Shem Creek in 2018, are behind the Market’s newest concept. Executive chef Thad Stuckey, formerly of The Blind Tiger, O-Ku, Cinco Tex Mex, and most recently, Screen Door, helms the kitchen.

A quick look at Hooked’s website shows an expansive menu. Starters include pickled shrimp, Prince Edward Island mussels, crab fritters, chicken livers, and more; there’s a Cobb, Market, and Caesar salad; landlubber friendly fried chicken, a burger, and ribeye steak; and of course the requisite melange of seafood entrees, from whole snapper to fried platters and shrimp and grits.

The restaurant will be open for dinner daily. The Noisy Oyster continues to operate its Rivers Avenue location in North Charleston.[location-1]
