Enjoyed a Mahi special with cauliflower risotto and arugula salad for lunch. It was outstanding! I have a couple of favorites on the menu, but have very much enjoyed the specials on my last few visits. My friend thought the shrimp basket was exceptional. Although very warm that day, a slight breeze made for a lovely lunch on the patio. Our server was excellent and friendly. It was an overall awesome lunch. I’m never disappointed.

We hadn't been to Prime Catch for several years. We found the food and service very good. The scenic view of the inner coastal is always a nice touch. The only complaint is that the noise level was very high. Other than that it is a wonderful place for dinner.

Overall, this was not a great experience. We went there for my son's birthday. not being a big fish person, I decided to play it safe with the 'fish and chips'. When I tried to order it, the waitress actually talked me out of it. So I decided on the filet instead. I knew better than to order a steak at a fish place.

The steak was cooked properly to medium but then it sat around and cooled off. The fries were obviously cooed at the same time because they had cooled to room temperature as well.

My litmus test for any bar is can the bartender make a passable Aviation. Honestly, as long as it is in the ballpark and served in a martini glass, I give them a passing grade. This bar however failed. It was served on the rocks. The waitress had to bring me lemons because there was no lemon juice in it at all and the Creme de Violet overpowered the Gin.

The only up side was that we sat outside, it was mostly quiet and we had a beautiful view of the boats gong down the Inter-coastal.

We have enjoyed PC many times but this is the first time we ate upstairs. Upstairs lacks the ambience of the first floor close to the water, but food still very good and nicely presented and staff very attentive.

It was our first time there and we had a reservation for 6:45 and had to wait about 10-15 minutes before we were seated. Not a huge deal but a little surprising. We got a table outside which was great as it was a nice night. Our server was very nice (I forget her name so I can't name her specifically). We ordered drinks and our meal - steamed clams for me and the crab and corn chowder for my husband. The soup was good and the clams delicious. For dinner I got the Prime Catch Trio and my husband got blackened mahi mahi. His fish was delicious but unfortunately my lobster and scallops were not cooked completely so I of course was unable to eat them. Our server did not deliver the dinners and did not return until we were finished so I was unable to say anything about it in time to get a replacement or have it cooked more and then when she came to clear the table she did not even ask how everything was so at that point I felt like saying anything was a waste of time. It was disappointing because it's one of their most expensive entrees and she had to see the barely touched scallops and lobster on my plate. We also noticed that other table that came in after us were finished and left before us so that was a bit annoying as well. We will probably give it one more try because everything except my dinner was good and honestly if that was just cooked a little more it would have been tasty so hopefully we'll have a better experience.

We love the outside terrace and view. We find the food has it's up and downs. Last night was mediocre. I had a crab dish that was served like warm and the veggies were soggy. My table mate had swordfish that was also mediocre with cold sides. The waiter was apologetic but not helpful.

We had the lobster bucket. It was tasty as was the tail stuffed with crabmeat. The lobsters were definitely not 1 1/4 since my husband was in the business. In Long Island these lobsters would be confiscated and thrown back in they were so small. Not even chicks. But we all enjoyed.

This evening was preset offers or go to regular menu. Bad decision by management. Not that pricing was much different.
Unfortunately some customers do not like the accessories to the preset menu and a big fat NO by the waiter Jason. No reflection on him, but no flexibility by management.
Leaves a bad taste in your mouth and not recommending or wanting to go back to this restaurant

One of our favorite restaurants whether for special occasion or a nice dinner with friends. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. They try to accommodate requests and the waterfront view is an added bonus. We usually have their lobster dinner - always fresh and delicious. The wait staff is attentive without being overbearing and they work well as a team!!

Ambiance was very nice and service was very good. The food presentation was pretty however the food was definitely on the bland side and the steak I ordered was beyond undercooked. My bread plate was either dirty or worn down - surprising for a restaurant of this caliber. Dessert was very good except the waiter put the check down way before we were finished. It was made very clear to us that the manager was pushing him to get our table done - as she kept staring as she walked by ( with her IPAD ) several times and was noticeably motioning to him. It really caused an awkward end to our evening especially since there were other open tables. I would not recommend this restaurant for true foodies.

The food is usually very good however perhaps due to the hour or due to the volume the kitchen was handling we were a little disappointed. The salmon I ordered was excellent but it arrived cold. The seafood bucket featuring a one and quarter pound lobster was good except the lobster was nowhere near a one and quarter pound more like a chicken lobster. Our reservation was 7:15 and we were seated at a table until 7:30. They may have overbooked. We will try them again on another day.

Perfect evening! We had an outdoor table to enjoy the moonlight. The season opening specials were wonderful and so reasonably priced! We started with steamed clams...fresh and bright. Dinners were prime rib with Dungeness crab legs and a stuffed lobster tails. Serving were generous and delicious. Even the bread basket is worth mentioning. Excellent service by Laura and a nice drop by with manager Gayle.
