I have been going here for years. One of the best restaurants in the area. Great food - wonderful wine list. The bar is fabulous and the entire staff is top notch - headed by Gail and Maria.

Wife andI on vacation. Friends said it is a must go to restaurant. They are right. Went on Monday, which is lobster night. My wife had a steamed lobster and I had a cod dish. Service was very good. They gave us a second deck table looking over canal. Will be back.

We had a reservation for midday on a Sunday for outdoor dining. Waterfront dining was breezy and a little louder than I anticipated. Our server was attentive but wanted our order as soon as she came to the table. If we didn't order immediately she said, "oh, I'll be back." Food was served hot and tasty. Appetizers were delicious and not rushed. Highly recommend the hot seafood dip with toast points. Ample dip, not enough to dip with however. My only complaint was that I ordered a split of Prosecco and it was not very cold. I would return.

I had the salmon and it was delicious. My only criticism is that they do not have plain baked potatoes on the sides selection They followed my request for no salt on the fish and veggies
Great views.

As always, food and service was excellent. They charge a premium for location on the water but it is worth it for an occasional great learning experience.I go over several times a year and have sex and have never had a bad meal or bad service.

My husband and I went to Prime Catch for Valentine's day lunch. The food was delicious. I had grouper and my husband had salmon. Cooked perfectly. The salad was really tasty and of course their coconut pie is to die for. My only problem was that we were seated next to a loud group of people and we should have asked for another table but did not. There were many tables available. The hostel should be been aware of the situation and seated us elsewhere.

It was especially nice because our friends who were meeting us, were tied up in traffic but we were seated at our reservation time to enjoy a cocktail while we waited. No pressure! Only criticism- NOT enough toilets for the ladies!!!!!! 2 for that many guests is ridiculous.

There was no wait for our reservation. The food was outstanding. The service was great! We were entertaining family from CA. We were lucky to have a table near the jazz band. Noisy, but we still had a great time talking and eating. Will return again.

We were visiting in the area and based on reviews tried Prime Catch. We were told when we arrived that we would be seated on time (arrived at 5:50 for a 6:00 reservation). We were finally seated 25 minutes late. Service was fair, no check after we received entrees to see if we were enjoying the meal. We weren't asked if we needed another cocktail. Food was only fair. Steak was chewy, scallops were good but the risotto wasn't creamy, the other couple that we were entertaining thought their meals (crab legs and a shrimp over pasta) were only fair as well. Ambiance is lacking; food only mediocre, and we won't return.

We celebrated our anniversary at Prime Catch with two other couples. We were seated outside by the Intracoastal waterway and enjoyed watching the boats go by. Our waitress, Lauren, was very good and friendly. It was a busy Sunday evening but that didn't affect the excellent service. And the food was amazing! The fish was fresh and presented with beautiful sides. It's a little bit pricey but the quality and view and service are worth it.... for special events!
