My wife and I returned to Catch for my birthday for the second year in a row. We eat here at least once per spring/summer during our trips to Wilmington and have never been disappointed. This time was equally as amazing as all the others. The food is consistently excellent and our server Rosemary was wonderful. We live in Washington, DC, which has become a top dining destination in the entire country over the last few years, and yet Catch would stand out even among the great food scene here. Places in DC can be snobby without being nearly as good. At Catch you'll find an atmosphere that is friendly, familial and surprisingly laid back considering the quality of the food. 5/5, absolutely recommend. We love this place!

The food, menu, and service were excellent! I rarely eat something that is so...memorable that I have to go back and the Sweet Potato salad was just that!!!! Everything was delicious, creative, fresh with quality ingredients. Will go there whenever in Wilmington!

we experienced a spectacular anniversary dinner at Catch Restaurant last night. Started off with NC oysters. They were large, and had a delightful coriander mignonette. Were were surprised with a complimentary bowl of truffle oiled fried brussel sprouts! lagniappe! I think Chef remembers how much I love these from the food truck! My favorite vegetable! My wife had the lump crabcakes, I have the mussels and scallops in a curry sauce. Perfection! great presentation, flavor, and portion. Mrs. Rhodes delivered a complimentary bottle of champagne to our table for our anniversary! They really do their best to make you feel welcomed and make any occasion memorable. Finally, they brought us the most amazing 2 desserts! I cant tell you wich on we loved more; the chocolate or the key lime! We had a wonderful time and never felt rushed like at other restaurants. We dined, had time to talk between courses, and thoroughly enjoyed our food and service.

Small staff ensures a longer than normal wait time if the place is busy. Menu online is not the menu they give in the restaurant. Nothing on it for those who don't particularly want seafood. Price is not worth the food. They seem to care more about catering to Vegans more than anyone else. I would not recommend and will definitely not return. If it wasn't illegal I would call my card company and chargeback the meal that was definitely not worth the cost.

We had eaten at Catch about six years ago, on a trip to Wilmington, and loved it then. We were going to Wilmington this past weekend and decided to try Catch again. We were not disappointed! The food was just as fresh and delicious as we remembered it. All the staff were helpful and nice. The tables in the restaurant were spaced far enough apart so that noise was not a problem. We would recommend Catch to anyone who wants a great seafood diner in Wilmington.

An absolutely fantastic dining experience...We were greeted warmly and taken directly to our table for a 7:15 pm reservation. Our primary server, Sutherlin, was an absolute joy. She was knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic and attentive without being overbearing and was quick with suggestions for cocktails, wine service and our meal.
As for the food, let's just say Chef Keith Rhoades has a great menu driven largely by local fresh seafood. His cooking and seasoning are spot-on and his attention to detail with plating and textures shows the mastery of simple restraint so individual ingredients can meld as a collective pleasure.
Definitely worth the trip and a shining star on the Wilmington culinary scene!

My second visit. The Catch is strong on salads...this time I selected the duck salad...quite tasty.
The fried fish platter was excellent...the fresh flavor of the varieties of seafood came through. I was impressed with the crisp coating...it did not fall off when slicing. Although I was quite pleased at the absence of salt, a believe that a bit of pepper or smoked paprika could have added a bit more character to the finished product.

The acoustics in the main dining room are really bad. The boisterous energy from one table of eight reverberated throughout...detracting from the quiet conversations at the other tables. I will select the bar on future visits for a more peaceful and relaxing experience.

Although there is lots of hype of Catch in Wilmington, we were disappointed. Our appetizer, She Crab Soup was very good. I had the special featuring Divers Scallops and Mussels. We waited 45 minutes for our entrees while folks that arrived after us were served ahead of us. The mussels were cold and there were big chunks of shell in the scallops. Manager never checked with us and the waiter gave no explanation about the delay. We won't go back and we won't suggest it to friends or visitors. Overpriced for the quality of the food and service.

Myself and 2 of my friends saw an advertisement for half price appetizers and free wine testing! The word "free" caught our eye. Needless to say we were very glad that we attended.
The staff was very professional and attentive. The food was awesome! I mean delicioso!!! I am the finicky one out of the group and I was more than pleased with every thing. I am looking forward to the food truck when it turns warm.
