We were very pleased with
We were very pleased with the on line reservation. However, when I looked up your address and phone # in the yellow pages it has you listed as a Tarpon Springs establishment so was not sure whether the phone # in the ad was relevant to your establishment in (New)Port Richy or not. This was not clear at all, enhance using the internet to locate your phone # and that is when I learned I could make reservations on line. Excellent service to provide. I liked the confirmation and also this follow up review. I was also disappointed that we were not told about the happy hour and if we had know that 7 pm was the cut off we would have ordered our second drink before that time.

A must place to dine
We have been here many times during our stay in the area. Very pleased with the service provided to us, especially by Emily. Great menue and location on the water front. Highly recommended, we are looking forward to our next visit.

Three of the four dinners
Three of the four dinners at our table were good and one was fair (slow cooked scallops wrapped in bacon). The spareribs were good as was the grouper and the mahi. The three desserts were good but nothing exceptional - they looked better than they tasted. They included baclava and key lime pie and a very chocolate cake with whipped cream on top. We had a great time and will be back.

Great Restaurant in Port Richey
The outside of Catches looks like a restaurant in Key West and once inside its a nautical theme which is very nice. Our server was very nice and attentive and the food very, very good. I had the fish and fried shrimp combo which was perfect....nice tasting coating and not greasy. My husband had one of their specials that also was very good, but a bit spicy which the server did warn him of, but he really liked the big flavorful shrimp in it. And the price of 2 dinners (which included our salads), plus 2 glasses of wine was excellent. We have tried several restaurants on the water which have not been very good, but this is an excellent place to go.

Mother's Day Brunch
We were a group of 3. Everything was delicious. The only exception was the prime rib/could have been more tender. Otherwise, the food was really good though pricey.

Fantastic Mother's Day Brunch
I visited Florida from Chicago to see my 92 year old Grandmother and take her to brunch. After a bit of online research, I settled on Catches and am I glad that I did. The service was top-notch and extremely attentive...they made my Grandma truly feel like a valued guest! The food was outstanding and the variety was ridiculous. I only wish I would have saved more room for the plentiful dessert table. Thanks Catches for your part in a memorable afternoon with my Grandma!

Anniversary Dinner for two
The view was superb. We sat indoors by the widow overlooking the canal with its nearby boat ramp occupied by the comings and goings of the days returnees. The organized chaos of the constant flux of boats down the canal and eventually out the ramp entertained us while we imagined unseen trailers jockeying for position. The service was very good, and although not five star it was more than adequate. The food was well prepared, well served, and tasty. However, it lost a bit of its appeal when we discovered that what we thought was a fresh catch-of-the-day was actually farm raised Mekong delta catfish (Basa). There was no overt deception, just our false assumptions plus, as we had been there before, the waitress apparently assumed we knew.

A Pleasant Surprise
My recent visit to Catches was to satisfy a seafood craving. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find snow crab legs at a reasonable price. The service was excellent, the wine we ordered was properly chilled and the crabs legs were delicious.

The seafood platters that my wife and I had we're some of the best we've ever had. The crab cake was excellentwith very little filler and the scallops were superb. They also make a killer strawberry daiquiri and desserts to die for.

Having seen variable reviews of this restaurant, I wasn't quite sure what to expect - but based on our experience all the reviews should be positive. Service was super, the food was excellent and the surroundings very pleasant. Nothing negative to say at all. Go an enjoy!

One of the Best
My husband and I went there for our 3rd yr anniversary dinner. Had the Salmon. Our food was excellent and the server was absolutely the BEST!

Excellent Food and Ambience
At our request, we were seated outside on the terrace. There were two other tables occupied on the terrace while we had our meal. It was delightful with the water view watching the dolphins in the bay. I had the Seafood Alfredo with shrimp and scallops. My wife had the Snow Crab. The crab legs were very meaty and nearly proved too much for her to finish. My daughter had the Fisherman's Platter and loved everything including the Basa Fish which she had never tried before. Her boyfriend had the Grilled Haddock. He is studying in the US, and he is from England where they consume much more fish, especially Cod and Haddock than we do in the US. He remarked that he has had none better. The food was great and the service was excellent as well.

Very nice seafood restaurant!
Nice ambience, excellent service (Melissa) and good food. Serving portions were reasonable and not "super-sized" which most people DO NOT NEED! Nice view and a place I would definitely take out-of-towners!

We found a new lunch spot
Catches is a bout a 50 minute drive for us, but it was well worth it. Avery cute restaurant, right on the water, with plenty of outdoor tables to soak up the view, The service was attentive without being oppressive and the food was very good. Prices are not bad and overall a great spot for a leisurely lunch.

Yes, we go out for the food but unless the service is great, everything else just falls short. Our experience was great at Catches. Our waitress was from the north, RI or Conn any who, she was great and just added to the experience. We will return.

Great food expertly prepared
What a great place! Ate on the riverside porch which had boats going by as the sun was going down. Fabulous backdrop to a great meal. Fish was perfectly char grilled accompanied by beautifully seasoned grilled veges. The fish stew was delicious and packed with flavor. Warm read with generous plate of spiced extra virgin olive oil.
The inside dining area was spread out and airy with large booths and also inviting.
Marvelous place with great seafood, service and atmosphere. Definitely try the place, we'll be going back!
