    Waitress was very friendly greeting us on our arrival and seated us immediately. They had a nice draft beer selection along with ample craft beers in bottles and cans. Enjoy the coconut shrimp and was pleasantly surprised it came with a raspberry dipping sauce which was very tasty Had the broiled seafood and it was delicious with a great presentation . Other person in party had one of their signature dishes which was Scillies and shrimp in a pineapple curry sauce with rice and that was fantastic. Definitely will be back and recommend

    They were short staffed. Sorry to leave a negative review but our server was also cooking our meal! The few staff they did have were sitting down and drinking with one customer’s table at different points in the night. The crabs were over cooked. Sad to say it was not good!

    SEAFOOD SKILLET was okay. KEYS KOMBO was awful. Menu did not mention lobster would be covered in terrible jelly substance. I was fine with the natural climate of the restaurant, but if you want cold A/C, this is not the place.

    Went on a Saturday evening in August. No crabs. No side salad option. Maryland crab soup was like tomato juice with barely a trace of crab. Ordinary food choices. Would never return.

    The Open Table description of Catchers was pretty accurate. This is a low-key place to enjoy seafood in a beachy environment. We dined on the early side, enjoying the fact that the crowd was light. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. Appetizers were great! The crab lovers in our party enjoyed the bucket of crab legs, well-priced and generously sized. We will absolutely put this on our 'visit again' list.

    An OK spot, sort of typical of a beach-y seafood place. With so many others available, nothing in particular that distinguishes this one from the others. Not bad, just not special....

    We started our meal with appetizers, I got the crab bisque and my husband ordered the stuffed baby Bella mushrooms. The bisque was very watery, but did have a good taste. Not many shells to pick out. My husband's appetizer was delicious, he highly recommends it. Moving on to the main course, I ordered the Dynamic Duo - Stuffed Lobster Tail & Lump Crab Cake, based on the waitress's suggestion. My husband ordered the Broiled Seafood Platter. Both of our entrees would have been very good, if only the chef would have seasoned the entrees. We added salt and pepper to our dishes, but they desperately needed Old Bay seasoning, or something similar. After all, this is a seafood restaurant in Rehoboth Beach! Also, both of our entrees could have used another minute under the broiler. Our waitress did not ask us if we wanted dessert. To sum it up, the meal was underwhelming. Could have really been good, just wasn't treated well in the kitchen. They need a better seafood chef. Not planning a return visit.

    This place was definitely less than what I was expecting. The service was not great, and the food portions were extremely small for the price that you pay. The best part.... the raw oysters. Would certainly recommend those.

    Dive bar masquerading as a restaurant. The kind of dirty beach bar you went to in college. 1 server for the whole restaurant, dirty beer glasses, and underwhelming food is not what I expected.

    We were very excited to be able to book a table for Catchers based on a family review. We ordered the Steam Bucket and it was horrible. The crab legs and shrimp were over done. The clams were overly sandy. The crabs and mussels were okay. The menu stated there would be lobster tale but alas there were none. We voiced our concern with the waiter and his reply was "Oh the cook should get another bag of clams and he really just throws whatever he wants into the pot." We will not be going back to this establishment. After hearing two people complaining upon walking in we should have turned around and left. Lesson learned.

    We had a party of 14 people and Catcher’s accommodated the reservation which I really appreciated. We sat down immediately upon arriving and the dinner began. The restaurant was not super busy which also helped us out. The service was friendly and very polite. The apps and dinners were very good and tasty especially hot right out of the kitchen. Usually I review the food orders but since there were so many of us I don’t even know what everyone had. With that said, I had a Chicken sandwich and fries which was delicious and my wife had fish tacos when she said were awesome. The prices are good for a beach vacation town. My only kinda complaint is the service was pretty slow. From ordering to meals being delivers took some time. It did not matter to us since the parking meter was paid and we are on vacation but I felt it only fair to mention. Otherwise everything was great.

    This place is great!! We got all you can eat crabs (cheapest in the area) and lots of apps as they are 1/2 priced from 4-6. One of my kids asked if the crab was dead and the manager (on his own) brought out a live one and showed him the difference. The crabs were good and the server was super friendly. Is it a fancy place? Absolutely not, but that's not what I'm looking for in a crab house!
