Catch was not catch! Heard it was nice but we were very disappointed. Food was not very good, had issues with wine not being available because they claimed they are running low and closing for season in a couple weeks. Burnt veal on two dinners. One chicken dish was possibly not cooked through. We caught a mistake on bill that overcharged us by a bottle. Idk, but don't think we could recommend.

This was our first time at this restaurant and I am torn. The food was great but the tables are so close together and so close to the bar that the noise level is really unbearable to an enjoyable dinner. People are literally yelling in your ear while you eat and we could barely hear our server. We kept banging into the chairs of the people next to our table each time anyone had to get in or out or the servers had to get by. Again great food but not sure we will return

I had to wait almost 45 minutes from the time of my reservation to be seated. When I inquired about the timing after half an hour of waiting, I was told by the owner, "I'm not sure where you are from, but around here, it is very rare to be seated within a half an hour of your reservation time." If it hadn't been so late, I would have walked out the door and gone elsewhere. Food was overpriced for small portions but reasonably tasty. I won't be returning.

Absolutely a delight for dinner for my birthday special meal. Martinis were creative and well crafted, service throughout meal was engaging and superlative in all respects
Food was amazingly fresh and gastronomically a pleasure
My favorite was he shrimp and scallop risotto which to me has been one of the best dishes I have had in years
All party members were very happy with their meals

Food was superb. Multiple very good options for how to prepare the fish, and it was excellent. Soft shell crab wraps as an appetizer were memorable. Server knew the menu well and gave good suggestions. We went on a Thursday night (happened to be their White Party) and it was very loud. We will definitely go again. If you go as a couple, I would recommend sitting outside so you can talk. If you are part of a larger group, sit inside and have a blast. Plan to stay for a while after dinner for drinks.

This was our first visit to Catch in Longport. When we checked in for our 8:30 reservation, it looked like it would be a while before we would be seated. However, after a short wait, we were seated at what was described as the quietest table in the restaurant. We were happy to be seated there, since it allowed us to hear each other speak, as the restaurant is quite loud and lively. Our server, Nicole was wonderful. She took time to explain the menu to us and even made a few recommendations. The food was delicious. We will look forward to our next visit to Catch.

Enjoy sitting outside. Attractive seating,umbrellas, mood lighting, sofas. Inside is nice decor but noisy.
The wait staff are friendly,attractive and helpful.
They have good variety of interesting cocktails.
My favorite is the spicy pickle martini.
Delicious homemade chips instead of bread.
A very creative and extensive menu of appetizers and main entrees.
Eat there often and always delicious. Many fish and seafood dishes. Great deal on Tuesday nights for a lobster dinner.
I especially enjoy the roasted romaine covered with heaping portion of shell fish.

This is a fun looking restaurant with cool decor. Food is inconsistent. Salad and cold seafood appetizer were great but soft shell crab dinner was AWFUL. Like inedible. I would probably go back at some point and give it another chance...maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Drink menu is good and it's a great spot for people watching and a group dinner.

Family dinner for 4. Although not many people inside, noise level was very high. Requested to sit outside and was accommodated. Beautiful night. A bit slow getting initial wait service, but once we were attended to, everything was superb. The crab avocado salad was great. We had 3 different fish entrees, each with a different sauce, plus one very large entree of chicken park. We did order a bunch of sides, which is a bit annoying to have to pay for separately at $10+ each, but they were all devoured (cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, truffle fries and broccoli rabe). Excellent meal and highly recommended.

My wife and I ate here for the first time Tuesday night. I was a little hesitant at first, since I'm not a real seafood lover. The menu was more than good for land-lovers like myself. Great drink menu, great apps and entrees, and great desserts! Our waiter was attentive and upbeat. We met Joe, one of the owners, who was very welcoming and hospitable. We will definitely be back!

Always delicious at Catch! Great service and great food. Our favorites are the OMG salad (grilled Caesar salad with shrimp and crabmeat - can split for appetizer or eat as your meal), the meatball appetizer and the mushroom cheesesteak flatbread - our must haves. The filet was absolutely delicious! And the Brussel sprouts are wonderful! Fun atmosphere especially on a holiday weekend! Owners and staff are terrific! Can't wait to return!

Catch is an upscale restaurant in Longport. We dined here last year and this week we had another positive experience. My husband had the tuna blackened, I had Joe's Café meatball with salad and the fried eggplant stack - all were great. Service is attentive. Careful with the homemade potato chips as they are addictive.

Note to readers: the restaurant takes all your credit card info when booking thru OpenTable. apparently it goes into some sort of ether vault and is not used unless you fail to show up but that info is not provided at the time of booking. When I inquired, I was told that it was scrubbed from the system later that night after we dined.

We were seated within minutes of our reservation. The drink menu was very extensive and we enjoyed fresh fish options for our entrees and one of their crab specials for an appetizer. It was very loud due to every table been occupied but the service was very attentive despite how packed it was. We'll be back!

Had a reservation and waited at the bar for almost two years past our reservation time. Service was great, food was mediocre at best - definitely not fresh or of any quality. More like frozen and blah. Drinks were really good as well. Wouldn’t go back. Maybe for happy hour.

We started with the eggplant, Tomato , Mozz app which was fresh & delicious. My wife had the salmon & I had the tuna which were both as fresh, high-quality as you can get & perfectly prepared. Celeste our server was warm, gracious and spot-on with everything! The hostess, Leigh was sweet, helpful & professional. Management is also consistently sincere in delivering their guests a great experience. We'll definitely be back.

The service was unprofessional and did not match the prices. I was also disappointed that "the catch" does mean fresh fish. The preparation for the fish was good, though. The food was good but overpriced compared to some alternatives.
