THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hooters Restaurant Review: Outlets by the score at Franklin Mills---Saks Fifth Avenue, Jones New York... and then there’s Hooters. Describing itself as delightfully tacky, yet unrefined, this chain doesn’t seem to care about the controversy as to whether or not women are exploited as sex objects. They even bend over backwards to promote family values by welcoming children with a menu of their own. Political correctness aside, the casual, Florida beach theme of Hooters is very popular with the business crowd, especially for those who enjoy reasonably priced seafood and shellfish---and the ever-present sports TVs. Much to our surprise, the menu does, in fact, lean heavily towards seafood, so ordering oysters either on the half shell, roasted, ala Rockefeller, or as a shooter cocktail is not painful for us. Steamed clams, clam chowder, crab legs, and buffalo shrimp are also available, but if you’re not inspired to eat from the sea, then burgers, wings, chili, and Caesar salads are there for the asking. If you can get past the brown-and-white T-shirted ladies, the food receives a higher rating than its ambience.
