We had special soft shell crabs that were awesome and one of their standards, crab cakes. Food and service excellent. Wine list is adequate with reasonable prices. You will need reservations., this is a local favorite.

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.

Dinber with Family from out if town. Table behind us were regulars and staff knew them. Should gave seated these loud people at table over in corner. We were with our 90 year old mother and we could not hear one another. Food was excellent- but need more low carb offerings ( less starch, sugar)

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.

My husband and I went there to celebrate my Birthday. It was our first visit. Hank was our server and he was very attentive. The oysters were amazing. My husband had crab cakes and I had red drum for dinner. We were not disappointed. Hank brought me an individual chocolate bundt cake with a candle for my Birthday. We can’t wait to go back.

Meal started out great and went slightly downhill. The bread and herbed oil was great. The lobster bisque was also great. The dirty south oysters were good, too. Main courses struggled; we both went with off-menu specials. Clam broth was bitter and the dish didn't have the promised bacon in it. Lobster dish was kinda overcooked and chewy, the sauce overly sweet, and the thai basil overpowered anything else with its anise notes. The drinks were good.

It's not BAD but for what it bills itself as we'd have liked more attention to detail on the flavors.

The chef does incredible things with fresh local seafood: creative preparation, beautiful presentation. And the service was as good as it gets: friendly, professional, attentive without being intrusive. The timing of our five course meal could not have been better. Overall just a great dining experience! Highly recommended.
