We wanted to love Catch, but there were too many flaws to rate this place even 'average'. There was a stain on the curtain (food) next to us, the service was lukewarm at best, and the food was barely exciting. I had expected so much more for the hype and the prices. My fish was dry and they actually tell you IN BOLD writing that cash tips are preferred. It's just tacky and I felt our date night was highly undermined by this request. I've left a full review on Trip Advisor for meal specifics.

The service was terrible . The manager could care less that we had an awful experience . The swordfish was mushy and the chicken Parmesan was tasteless . I would never recommend this place even if it was free

Very noisy even though not quite full. Weekend after Labor Day and they were so under staffed that they had empty tables and patron standing long times for seating. Wait staff was far less attentive than expected at this (high) price point. It took forever to get the check. The food did come out promptly and was pretty good. At the end of the meal there was a bit of a fiasco as one of the credit cards was not returned to the table with the check to sign. It took them almost 15 minutes to finally located, after I was told that they would simply take my phone number and call me if it showed up! Not very good security not very good attention to detail and, with today’s Friday environment, totally inappropriate. When they did find it it was like, oh we found it no problem. It was a problem and they didn’t handle it correctly.

Great place for fresh sea food if you are in the Ocean City area. We wanted a drink with our meal so we ventured out from OC. Everything was very fresh tasting and well prepared. I would have given 5* but prices seemed a bit high. I would still go back if I was in the area.

Other reviews hold true. Cool ambiance, but inconsistent food and service. Four of the six meals we ordered were delicious and as you would expect, two orders of tuna were served well done when both were ordered rare. We had to beg for service - so short-handed. I think this place is just poorly managed. Not enough waiters, too many bus boys and too many hostesses. We were comped our drinks which is ironic because we would have drank more if we had been properly served. With so many great restaurants at the shore, we won’t be going back.

Was charged a no-show fee even though we DID show up for our reservation. When I called and emailed they acted like I was making up the story and bothering them. Still have yet to get the no-show fee back. Sorry we ever went and won't return.

The food was very good, the service was really lacking. The bartender was really having a hard time keeping up with drinks. The waiter and waitress were all over the place ! They are clearly under staffed and it’s a shame, because they have great food!

The service was HORRIBLE!. We sat immediately but the waitress did Not come over for 20 min. (Though support staff gave us water). She was abrupt & rude as we ordered drinks. 3 tables that came in well after us received their drinks, appetizer, and ordered before we received our drinks. When she Finally brought the drinks, they were incorrect... Twice! To which she responded rudely “I’m not the Bartender”
When she finally returned she said “are you Ready to Order!” To which we replied “you haven’t told us the specials”. We were completely ignored. You would think it’s because it was super busy, but not the case. I guess we weren’t her regulars. I’m in the restaurant business and respect the service industry, but This was Uncalled for.
We live close by and was hoping to make it a regular spot.☹️

First time at Catch. Food was great, service was great! Soft shell crabs were best I’ve had all year. Flatbread was huge and delicious. I even added some caper berries to my vodka martini. We had a non seafood person and they had a lot of alternative choices. Will definitely be back ! Thanks for a great evening Catch !!

We were not happy with the service or atmosphere. The food was good, but not worth the price, environment or service. One and done, too many other excellent restaurants on the island to choose from.

Friday night at the Jersey Shore and the restaurant was crowded and bustling. Our table was ready on time when we arrived and the service was friendly, attentive yet not overbearing. We were not rushed at all. The food was really yummy, especially the meatball - a must-have on this menu!! The best part - the location right here in Longport...

As usual, very good food, but the spicy pickle martini that I always enjoy was neither spicy nor enjoyable. Of course I drank it! Although I complained that it was different and not good.
I know it was not the same and should have been deleted from my bill. With investigation, they will find the bartender was at fault.

We love Catch and the food is really tremendous, Lobster Tuesday’s is sensational. Sadly, service was so very very slow, we waited over an hour and a half for our main courses. If they could solve this issue (and it was the 2nd time this summer that this happened), it would be our #1 restaurant in Longport/Margate/Ventnor & Atlantic City.

We sat on the patio and it was lovely. The dining room itself was quite loud. Service was a little less than attentive but adequate. The food was excellent. Nice presentation and quality flavor. For a beach town it was well above average. Chef handled special requests with ease. Servers were more than happy to accommodate. Overall, a very good experience. Would definitely return.

Waited well over reservation. Service was underwhelming compared to years in the past. Not sure we felt valued or composited for the inconvenience of our reservation. We were told they had been busy.... guess what - as an establishment, make your guest feel valued and not blame excesses that can be managed. I would think twice before going if back or recommending. As guests - we should never have to follow up on our reservation. Go forward, please take notice and make guests feel welcomed.

The first thing you notice is the lack of any prices on the drink menu OR specials menu. They do this purposely - Prices are too high for what you get. Branzino was tasteless (even with the Lucy sauce) and the sauce on the sesame tuna special was awful. I mentioned to my waitress that I couldn’t eat the rice because it was drenched in the awful sauce and she just shrugged! Soft shell crabs were just OK. The side of Brussel sprouts were way too sweet and too oily. I’ve eaten here before and had a decent meal but this was over $200 for 3 of us with no appetizers and 1 drink each. I love having a cute, local seafood restaurant but unfortunately, I won’t be returning.

Our server John was amazing, very informative, pleasant and engaging. He knew the menu well.
The owner was lovely also.
Our food was DELICIOUS!
Our cocktails were made by a young lady who I spoke to just prior to her making them. I was telling her how my daughter has mastered her own signature cocktails.... spoiled us for when we order out. They not only look awesome, but they taste amazing.
Well your young lady did not disappoint us. Delicious! I made sure to tell her that as we left.
Presentation is everything.... Catch gets a 5 star from our family.
We will be back.

We had a 9:15 reservation and were seated at almost 10:00. A little upset about that but it was very busy. The bronzino with the Margate sauce was amazing!!! The homemade chips and malt were yummy. The broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes were amazing and perfect. My date had the filet and really loved it as well. The noise level was high but it was Sat. night and it was very busy and had a fun atmosphere!! My martini was delicious as well. Overall a great meal and I will be back soon!!
