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.

The restaurant is located in a non-descript strip mall, but features unique seafood dishes and exotic drinks. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Great choice for that special event

Never disappoints. Always very interesting specials for the night. One diner had scallops, two others the shrimp and grits, I splurged on the Lobster, Lobster, Lobster. Outstanding. You’re missing one of the best, if not THE best, restaurants in Wilmington if you don’t try Catch. 😋

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.

Excellent, as always. The food was wonderful. We had the Lobster, Lobster, Lobster the Drunken Lobster, Crab Cakes and the Ribs and Shrimp. I couldn't pick a favorite, they were all that good. The staff was great from start to finish and Hank absolutely charmed my 94-year-old mother-in-law. Thanks Hank. I highly recommend Catch.

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.

Catch has a great location that attracts people from all over the Wilmington area. The ambiance is nice with dividers separating the tables in the middle to keep the noise level. The food is fresh and very tasty, and the presentation is outstanding. The wait staff is polite and very attentive to everyone's needs without being overbearing. We have been to Catch 6 times, and have never been disappointed.

The whole experience was fabulous - our server, Melissa was a delight! It was my birthday and she saw that I had a chocolate molten cake for dessert. I would request her again. Our food was terrific, except the drunken noodles were extremely salty. I know they are supposed to be salty, but it was so salty I could only eat a couple of bites. Salmon was yummy! My husband had the red drum special and enjoyed it!

Crab cakes were good, but not as good as previously. Tried two oyster appetizers, oysters were not very flavorful (salty); fried option was slightly overdone and tasted like the fryer oil was burnt.
Lobster entre tasted deep fried (same burnt oil flavor). Sangria was overpriced ($14). Do not plan to return, too many better options in town.

First time visit, went for a romantic birthday dinner and it far exceeded our expectations. Stepping inside the restaurant - the décor was amazing, the music relaxing and the staff was to put it mildly - INCREDIBLE. The daily specials reflect the true value of the day - everything was fresh and inventive. Tastiest meal I have had outside of a five star restaurant in Chicago! We will definitely be back
