We visited Catch for an early anniversary dinner without the kids. This establishment is located in a strip mall but don’t let the look deceive you into thinking this is just another run of the mill hole in the wall. My wife and I shared a hibachi salad which was very good. She had the Lobster, Lobster, Lobster which consisted of a lobster tail flash fried over greens and potato’s. The Lobster was delicious but the use of ham/bacon fat on the greens was a bit much. I had the ribs and shrimp. The shrimp were coated in brown sugar, caramelized and cooked spot on. The ribs were a bit tough and coated with a very thick rub in places. As it was our anniversary we received a complimentary chocolate cake with fresh whipped cream. Our server was very attentive even with the restaurant being almost full.

Overall I’d give Catch 4 stars as the food was very good, the prices were fairly high ($11 salad, $36 for lobster, $28 for ribs, $14 sangria) and service was great.

We drove past it but returned to find it. Not a very exciting location but the service and food absolutely made up for that. Just a very nice and quiet noisewise spot for us more mature folks. To cap it all, there was a wonderful man who was just leaving with his family . About to be 101 and his family told us he was in the second wave of landing in Normandy in 1944. Wow! Catch was just the right place for him to be, quiet, delicious food and great service. Thanks!

We started with 2 appetizers, mussels with kefir lime coconut and a shrimp dish. The firecracker shrimp was very good. I loved the salmon. My friend felt the Caesar salad and lobster had more salt than it needed, but otherwise had great flavor. The waitstaff was very attentive. With tip, appetizers, entrees and drinks for four, the price was $230. It is in a strip mall and didn’t have the ambiance of some places. Overall a place I would recommend for the freshness and quality of the food and the pleasant attentive staff.

As always the food is phenomenal here, it’s the service staff that is just an added bonus to the food. Our server, Jen, has been at Catch for years and that speaks volumes about the place because waitstaff turns over often and she has been there for at least 6 years, that’s when we first found Catch. From Seafood to Steaks, you will not go wrong, if oysters are in season get them!!!! The Firecracker Shrimp, Calamari and the Brussel Sprouts are not to be missed as starters. The Sweet Potato Salad is so good it’s like a dessert. The Drunken Angry Lobster, Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Grits, Pork Chop, and Fried Seafood Platter are a few of our faves. Have Ricky fix you up a concoction at the bar, he is a master of craft cocktails. If in Wilmington, this is a MUST!

Catch is our go-to place for any celebration. We love the wait staff, the food, the drinks, and my kids especially love the grilled bread and pesto. We have never had a bad meal and enjoyed it so much on Friday. The complimentary birthday dessert was such a nice gesture and was absolutely delicious. It's one of the only places in town that my entire family can find something they love to eat. I highly suggest the oyster appetizer.

The food was beyond excellent. The seasonings and pairing of flavors were exceptional.
Portions were larger than expected which was a pleasant surprise.
Service was outstanding.
Lighting was a little too dim. Customers were reading menu using their phones for light sources.
The atmosphere was rekaxing and unhurried.
A perfect date night night with my wife.
I will be returning and highly recommended The Catch to our friends.

Food was very good and portion size was more than adequate but it was quite pricey. the service was very slow. The atmosphere was very unassuming and quite frankly was rather dreary. I would say that this would be a special occasion place based on the price but the ambiance was really a let down.

My husband and I absolutely love Catch! Truly a hidden gem. Coming from a big city I’ve very use to high quality service,food,experience. This place by far is on my top 5 list. Quality ingredients, I had a dish with truffle oil. Not too fancy either, Ive felt comfortable dressing up and dressing casual. There were even high chairs for our 9 month old and staff was pleasant to her (some restaurants definitely get annoyed when babies are brought in)

10/10 we will definitely be back

The oysters were delicious, my husbands meal vegetables with shrimp, literally, a shaker full of salt had been poured over the top, totally inedible, we didn't want to complain.
My tilefish with grits very delicious.
No-one asked us how we liked the food, when we left no-one acknowledged us.
