    Service was fantastic. The food thou, very overrated according to the reviews. Presentation was great but the flavors are so bold, some of the items over powered our palate making everything sadly taste the same.

    This was our first experience at Catch. The service was very good. Lots of check in's at the right time. The menu had nice daily specials with the day's best catch. The main menu had a good flair that made their dishes different and stand out.

    Date night with the wife started out with the dirty oysters that were delicious,she had the Angry Lobster which always is excellent. I had the Flounder special, flash fried which was tremendous . We were so full we had to take dessert to go, but ahhh that coconut cake was awesome. Service was impeccable as always. This has always been our favorite restaurant since moving to Wilmington. Never a bad meal.

    Food was very good but a little overpriced. Service was very slow ie had to request numerous times for items to be brought. It was not crowded and there seemed to be no issues with staffing.

    Extremely over priced for the food given. Paid $38 for Grouper and they gave me half of a filet. I literally asked where the rest of my fish was…service was great and the food tasted very good but again the potion size was too small.

    overall, we were not thrilled. but i will say, our waitress was excellent, as was the other wait staff who tended our table. also, my husband's entree, crispy flounder, was superb. he couldn't have been happier. but there were a few issues that will keep us from returning. we arrived at the same time as two other parties of two. by the time we received our drinks, both other parties had already received their appetizers. there were two additional parties of two that arrived well after us, and they too were way ahead in the process. it took over 30 minutes for our appetizers to come out. the other two parties that arrived when we did were eating their entrees by then. we were told "it takes time to shuck oysters" (my husband ordered six) and "your salad is a work of art" (um, ok.) i think what really got us was when the manager was doing his rounds, asking how things were, and my husband told him that the wait on the drinks and appetizers was ridiculous... rather than apologize and offer to comp us a glass of wine or something, he just gave us excuses, about how it takes time to shuck oysters. come on. we're talking 6 oysters here. a good manager holds him or herself accountable and takes responsibility for customer satisfaction. this manager did not. we ate at Catch about 3 years ago and it was great! i don't know if there's been a management change or ... ? but i'm sad to say we won't return.

    Best seafood platter I’ve ever been served! Everything was perfectly cooked and not over cooked. My hubby ordered soft shell crabs and they were superb! We cook our own seafood often and have high expectations from chefs who do also. Catch lived up to our standards and we will be back - SOON!

    We’ve been here twice before and it was excellent. This most recent trip will be our last. Drinks were not good. Lobster over done. Oysters weren’t properly chilled. Charged us for bread refill! Who does that? We loved it there and were excited to go back. We were disappointed this time. Server was lovely.

    Excellent food and preparation. Inventive. Too expensive, however. $330.00 for 4 people. $18.00 mixed drinks? Really? Kind of feel ripped off.

    We were visiting Wilmington from VA and my sister friend recommended this place. The service was great. I had the Chef special, panko catfish over grits and collard greens with a corn salsa. It was okay, the grits were dry. like any grits once it is cold they do harden. it would have been nice to have some juice from the corn salsa, it was just corn. i did order a side of fried shrimp. OMG they were delicious! my husband ordered the seafood platter, fried fish of the day (catfish) fried oysters, and fried shrimp. it was served with collards and sweet potato puree. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, we ordered the oysters that was great, cheese, bacon, collards and the chef special, tropical shrimp ceviche. that was GREAT! we were celebrating our anniversary and they surprised us with a chocolate cake. it was really good. You must have a reservation. When we visit Wilmington again, we will go back. I know my husband will get the same dish, but i will try the salmon the next time and hopefully they will have the tropical shrimp ceviche. This is a place you must try! Everyone was great from the time you walked in to the time you left.
