Excellent, creative cuisine.
Only downside, the service felt 'rush' as if the water had to much to do... Did not take the adequate time to answer our questions.
We arrived to the restaurant after traveling into town from out of state. They were able to seat us ahead of our reservation time. Everyone from the hostess to our server was attentive, helpful, and kind. The food was OUTSTANDING. We loved every item that was brought to the table: the bread served with delicious, fragrant, and fresh pesto, awesomely good sweet pickles, fried oysters that melt in your mouth, firecracker shrimp like none other you've had before, a beautifully presented lobster special with fried rice, and a blackened swordfish cooked to perfection on a pillow of yummy mashed sweet potato. The sangria was wonderful and the thai gimlet was as well. It was a perfect finish after a long ride. We highly recommend Catch to anyone and will absolutely be back!
Delicious! Incredible service.
Always a pleasure to eat here and family run by a great family
Did not disappoint this first-timer. Our waiter was very nice and courteous, and the food was amazing!
The restaurant was a little hard to find as it’s situated in an unassuming strip mall. We were looking forward to our dining experience as we had read the reviews on line.
The restaurant was a little dated and the seated us near the restrooms! The noise level was s but high for quiet conversation. That being said, the service was very good and the lobster tempura our of this world! Kudos to the chef.
We went to Catch after reading the many great reviews. We were not disappointed. I can't wait to return. Don't let the unassuming shopping center exterior put you off. This is a first rate restaurant. The service was excellent. Wonderful, creative cocktails. Delicious appetizers. Entrees were so good...ample portions, beautiful plating, delicious. The best food in Wilmington by a long shot.
This was our first visit to Catch. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. The service was GREAT but the food....ahhh the food- Fresh, delicious, perfection!!
More on the $ side but worth every bit. My husband said he can honestly say this has been the best find since we have relocated.
We HIGHLY recommend Catch and we will return, No Doubt.
Food was amazing as always! One of my fave place to take all of my visiting friends and family.
So far, the best seafood in Wilmington. We had an all crab dinner; blue crab claws in a wonderful broth, 2 large soft shell crabs (a bit too much breading for me but still good) and crab cakes. The only downside is they were out of Key Lime pie. We'll definitely go back.
Delicious meal and excellent wait staff! Excellent evening out.
Kimchi cabbage amuse-bouche. Charred bread with fresh pesto. Herbs homegrown. Drunken lobster with Thai basil rice. Crab cakes with sea island pea succotash. Coconut creme broker. Key lime pie. This was our meal. Chef and his daughter (pastry chef) are amazing. Deliciousness in every bite.
Love the Catch. Keith Rhodes is a awesome chef featuring local ingredients. I am always impressed with the entries. I had the soft shell crab pictured. Delicious!!!
The meal I had was absolutely phenomenal! I had followed Chef Rhodes on Top Chef and was very excited to try his restaurant. Servers were very attentive and my cocktail which was a dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives was on point. I highly recommend this restaurant the seafood is amazing.
Excellent service, outstanding meal with great presentation
Food was excellent. Unfortunate that we dined at the same time as a wine pairing event. Noise level was beyond energetic.
Don't let the exterior fool you. Fantastic service, fantastic food in a comfortable and inviting environment. I would go back in a heartbeat and If I lived locally, I would make it a regular visit. I will be back. You will not be disappointed by the food!
Food s always special. Menu changes daily . Crab cakes are superb.
One of our favorite places. The food and service were exceptional.
We always visit Catch when we are visiting Wrighstville Beach.
WOW! What more can I say, food was delicious different pairings of flavors that were a pleasant surprise very knowledgeable wait staff
you cant go wrong if you like fish menu changes monthly a must go to place
Crazy delicious foodie restaurant! Excellent service, wine selection, presentation and flavors. Don’t miss it!
Somewhat complex menu-interesting combinations. I tried the sesame crusted salmon with drunken noodles and spring vegetables. There were several vegetables my husband and I couldn’t identify. The waitress told us the green curled up “things” were fiddlehead ferns! They looked sautéed but I didn’t want to eat them. The other unrecognizable veggie was a turnip cut in half with some of the green top left on it. There were also one inch blocks which turned out to be beets! The quiet atmosphere was nice-tables for 2 were small and somewhat dark on our side of the space.
I think this is good seafood with an Asian flare.
Catch is one of the Top 3 dining experiences in the area. Outstanding fresh seafood prepared with care and innovation.
Fantastic food and service.
If you want outstanding fish prepared to perfection, Catch has the best seafood in the Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach area. The food is on par with what I expect from a fine food restaurant, and it is very moderately priced. Service is excellent. The servers are experienced and knowledgeable. Catch is a well kept secret.
I had a wonderful birthday celebration here. The food was fantastic as well as the service. We will definitely be back.
It was our wedding anniversary. We had a reservation for 7:30 on a Friday night, but showed up at 6:30. They were full but, when they realized it was our anniversary, they managed to seat us -- which was greatly appreciated. We ordered the Cajun oyster appetizer -- it was one of the 7 best seafood dishes we've ever had -- fresh, well-prepared, seasoned just right...it literally melted in the mouth. The scallops were a bit overcooked, but a flounder dish was beyond excellent. And an amazing chocolate cake for dessert, on the house because of our anniversary. And, to top it off, they gave us a nice card to mark the occasion with a coupon for a return visit. We'll be back!
We've dined at Catch on two or three occasions while in Wilmington and we love the place. The food is delicious, fresh, imaginative, and generally local. This is the best restaurant experience to be had in Wilmington. Interestingly enough, Catch is located in an unassuming strip of businesses along busy Market Street and it is easy to drive past the first time going there.
Excellent food and service!
This was our fourth visit, having first experienced Catch shortly after it opened when the chef/owner's family also worked in the restaurant. Now, there's a new cast of staff, who were just as friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The food was wonderful, as always, including daily specials -- mahi mahi with tempura shrimp and seasonal softshell crab. Except for the window blinds and customers' clothing, there was very little to absorb the high sound volume in the dining areas. That nuisance detracted the experience from a fully memorable evening. All in all, Catch is still worth the drive for repeated visits.
Fabulous dining experience as always & perfect way to celebrate our anniversary!
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!
I visit this restaurant every time I am in Wilmington. The best seafood place. Fresh, local ingredients. The chef is very creative and there is always something delightful and unexpected. Service staff is exceptional, knowledgeable and accommodating to all customer's needs.
The creative menu and overall food quality at The Catch is excellent!! We look forward to visiting this restaurant every time we are in Wilmington.
Elegant and delicious food, casual and comfortable atmosphere; great experience (the lobster dish was to die for).
Waitress was very informative about the food and she was spot on. Crab cakes were delicious. I would definitely return.
