    A wonderful seafood restaurant and a nice break from all the chains that have taken over in the area. The calamari was done to perfection and so fresh. We will return soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/5/2008
    The restaurant is tucked away down a quiet alley in Georgetown. It was nice the attire is casual since we weren't able to change out of our tourist clothes before dinner. The wine list was disappointing so we had beer - which is a poor selection as well. The crab puffs were excellent but the steamed mussels had a lot of sand in them and didn't look to be cleaned well. However, the crab stuffed trout was excellent! The raw bar looked great but neither of us like raw shellfish. The serivice was good but we had to ask to be seated near the windows to enjoy the view.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/22/2008
    We experienced very poor service. We had to remond the waiter to get our appetizer - dozen raw oysters. We could see them at the bar - they had sat there for 15-20 minutes. Though he poured the first round of drinks, we had to get up to get our bottle, which was not situated near our table, to serve ourselves our second round. We asked for a second bottle of wine and that took FOREVER... Sorry to say we will not return.

    We went there mainly because they had a special menu for Valentine's Day, and they had room. The food was quite good, and we didn't feel rushed as we have at other restaurants on V-Day. A bit pricey, but worth it.

  • I usually don't spend that
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/18/2008
    I usually don't spend that much time in Georgetown, but it looked like a good choice for a Valentines day dinner a couple years back. I remember my date and I were sat about four feet from the next table; not very private/romantic. I cant remember the food being that exceptional, probably because we sort of crammed in there. The waitstaff was good..the garage, valet was on a very steep incline which is the case in alot of establishments in the Georgetown area, but is challenging for a 5speed. I think I left some rubber back there at Sea Catch that night. If I ever do find myself at Sea Catch again I would want to check out their bar area which was very large and lively.

  • I dined at Sea Catch for restaurant
    GinMartiniGirl
    Dined on 8/7/2007
    I dined at Sea Catch for restaurant week and was thoroughly disappointed. Only three entrees were listed however when I ordered I was told only two of the three were actually available. I inquired if another selection was being offered in its place and I was told no and I needed to select from the two selections available. Upon further questioning if I could perhaps choice something of equal value from the regular menu my request was denied. All else was acceptable but based on their contempt for diners ordering from the restaurant week menu I would not dine there again. Restaurant week is my way of finding new restaurants that I would come back to on a regular basis. Sea Catch is on my list of "Never Again".

    worst I have ever been to. Apparently they have changed their name now. I still would never go back. slow service, toss the food down on your table, and run is not service. Giving lip about a charred and burnt supposedly medium filet was the most ridiculus response I had ever seen
