New Restaurant Opens

OCEAN CITY – It may not carry the “Hooked” name but Tailchasers Restaurant & Dock Bar, Hook Restaurant Group’s newest beach dining experience, offers the same quality menu to all who enter the 122nd Street restaurant in Ocean City.

Opening its doors to the public on Friday, June 8, Tailchaser’s 16,000-square-foot waterfront restaurant and dock bar offers a family friendly atmosphere with indoor dining space, outdoor patios, beach seating and playground area. Boat slips are also available for those traveling by boat.

“After a long day on the beach, we know what the seasonal crowd is looking for in a dining experience,” said Steve Hagen, owner of Hooked Restaurant Group. “They want a family friendly venue that has fresh food at affordable prices and a relaxing atmosphere. That’s exactly what they will get when they dine at Tailchasers.”

Hagen adds a majority of the menu options are less than $20, but still mirror all other Hooked cuisine offerings in quality and presentation.

Tailchasers will be serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner year-round.
