    One oerson never received the second dish that was ordered. Waiter said it was not his fault but the food server from the kitchen. Waiter walked past our table several times but never stopped to ask how was everything.

    My date and I were seated adjacent to a window upstairs and we really appreciated the excellent view of the waterfront from our table. Our server was outstanding, he answered all our questions and stopped by four times throughout our meal to take care of all our food and beverage requests. We will certainly be back to Catches and anticipate another sterling performance by the entire team at this fine restaurant.

    My mom’s fish came out breaded rather than grilled like it said on the menu. Rather than getting her what she actually ordered, the waitress got her a child’s flounder dinner AND CHARGED HER FOR IT. I don’t think we’ll go back.

    Enjoyed our Thursday Lobster special and a pitcher of exceptional Sangria. Just bring your own bib! A bit messy but that's the fun of Lobster. Staff was very pleasant even if a bit forgetful but we will definitely be back when it's warmer and we can sit outside on the back deck. Great atmosphere.

    We were seated at a nice table. One chair was quite wet, but no problem. After sitting for half an hour my husband went to ask the host if we had a server. Server claimed she was never told we were her table. Still all okay with us, we weren’t in a rush and enjoying the view. After another half hour our entrées arrived. My cobia was so overcooked it wouldn’t even cut with a knife, and plantains were burned to a crisp. We had to ask another server to send ours back to our table to remove it. I was offered another meal but by that time my husband was halfway through his and we didn’t want to wait another half hour. I shared the remainder of his dinner, which he described as “just okay, have had better seafood”. The manager took mine off the bill and our check was dropped off. Incredibly, we then sat waiting nearly 10 minutes before we finally went to the host stand to pay the bill. She never came back to pick it up. We’ll never come back, either. Pretty disappointing.

    Very disappointed in the restaurant. I ate here a few years ago and it was great. My my how times have changed. I’m not even gonna blame my server, a lovely girl doing her best I guess. Ordered soup and calamari apps soup came out cold and lumpy. Calamari was ok but came out 20 minutes later. Our order was wrong. No side crab cake. Cole slaw putrid and Mac n cheese from a box. I can go on and on and on but all I’ll say from here is avoid this overpriced shell of what used to be a good place.

    Maybe we went on an off night but our experience was not the best. Food was ok. But that was about it. We were not greated or spoken to until I complain 20 minutes in. Drinks were refilled after we finished with entrees. No one checked on us after the first bite. One person in our group was vegan and was served the wrong items twice. Overall not so great.

    First time customers. The restaurant venue and view was very nice. Servers were great with food and drinks delivered in reasonable time. However, the rolls in bread basket were served cold and had been sitting out a while which made them stale. We expected the food quality to be much better than it was. Ordered the Flounder platter with stuffed crab with signature sauce, green beans, and rice. The fish was just ok but the signature sauce was not good and was more like semi-thick gravy. Green beans were ok but the rice was overcooked and sticky. We thought food quality would have been much better for the price of $32 per platter.

    The fish items ordered were very good..grouper..taste, temp, amount. The clam chowder was hot, creamy but clams very rubbery and fishy...good there were only 2 chunks in cup. Potato salad side was tasty and surprisingly different. The chips that came with sandwich were the worst side items ever received with a meal...the seasoning was more than over powering, salty, and nasty...serving size was very plentiful, but could only eat 2 chips..were a waste of space on plate! Service was attentive, pleasant , quick, and a plus. Food items arrived quickly and hot. Have been eating here for over 8 yrs during snowbird season...a favorite NPR seafoodnrestaurant.

    I used to really enjoy Catches. The food was good, the service fine & the atmosphere great. Last night not so much. First & foremost, the chairs are HARD & uncomfortable! They are metal with wooden backs & seats & small!! Heaven forbib someone of size came in. They definately wouldn’t fit in the seat!! The food @ best was ordinary in taste. The menu was varied, but everything came with yellow rice & either black beans or green beans. We all had fish & weren’t totally impressed. We also thought the prices were high. All & all, we weren’t impressed & I doubt we will be back anytime soon.

    Somewhat average food, and I was expecting more. Food came warm, not hot, and it was clear from the sauce on the stuffed flounder that it had sat somewhere and cooled off. My wife had snow crab which was similar in temp. The corn-on-the cob on her entree was clearly frozen half-ears that had sat in the water too long and was "soggy" My flounder was ok, yellow rice followed the pattern of having cooled off too much. I did order an "add on" of five fried shrimp. They came hot, and 8 shrimp were brought. They were delicious, and I wish the rest of the food was as good. $110 bill before tip, which included a glass of house wine and an Old-Fashioned

    Selection of buffet items was very good and everything tasted really good. Service was friendly but inattentive possibly due to automatic 20% tip added to bill. Tables for two felt like an afterthought as most attention was given to tables of four and more including during the seating process. Probably better to eat here during regular business rather than a holiday buffet.

    We usually have a great experience, but today, we went to the Christmas buffet 2023. Brussel sprouts, salmon, salad, and shrimp were very good. But the rolls were cold, and all of the meat entrees were overcooked, dry, and very salty. We ate at 11:45 am just after they opened. We were very disappointed as we dine here alot.

    A friend of a cousin recommended Catches for our family get together. My reservation was at 1 pm but I inadvertently told 3 people it was 1:30. The staff were never pushy when I’m told them what happened. They were polite and attentive. All 6 of us were impressed with the food, service and view. Thank you for a great day !

    Never go on a holiday! We were double seated at a table. When we got back from the buffet, another group was sitting at our table. My husband had to bus an empty table so we could sit. At the buffet we had to wait in line because people were waiting on clean plates. About 3 of the food stations were empty so we had to wait for the staff to bring food. Twice I went to the hostess station to beg for silverware. Finally a server came. The same thing happened for the dessert table…line waiting for the kitchen to refill it. The food was actually quite tasty but the dining experience was terrible. I will say that our reservations were at 5pm. This was the last seating for the day … which I didn’t realize when I made reservations. The servers were exhausted, the kitchen couldn’t keep up, but everyone still tried to be friendly.
