After a week on the East Shore, we were so happy to end our vacation with this great experience. Recommended by the server at another restaurant, this was the best dinner we had all week. Food was delicious, ambiance was perfect, service was good. Don't miss this restaurant.

The food was outstanding - Best crab cakes ever! The service was great too. The only downside was that it was extremely noisy and very difficult to have a conversation.

The food was very good. The wait staff person we had was very pleasant and served our food hot, which is very important. However, for a first time impression, it was a bit mixed, so for now I'll say I would still be able to recommend based on the quality of the food and fair pricing. My hope is that these misses were a fluke for the evening.

The items that were a miss during our dinner:
1. Speed of service was extremely slow for an evening dining time start (7:30pm). The slow service dragged the dinner out to slightly over 2 hours.
2. The temperature within the restaurant was way too warm, in fact bordering on hot as both my wife and I were sweating. The warmth also contributed to too many insects (flies) being a nuisance during dinner.
3. Noise was moderate-high, but we also had a very upset toddler next to us that was screaming practically half of the time that made it a bit more unpleasant than I think is likely a norm at the restaurant. I'll be able to re-evaluate better with that additional noise source removed hopefully at the next dinner. Not much could be done, the child was just having a tough evening and she did finally settled down once she had her food. However, the speed of service impacted her as well.

Overall, because the food was good, the experience wasn't too bad, however it wasn't the experience expected as friends had just recently been to the restaurant and gave us the recommendation. I'm hoping for a better experience in round two.

This was a perfect day to sit outside at the marina and watch the boats and the pool. It is an great summer venue. I had the spicy tuna wraps and they were very good. My wife had the crab cake an it was excellent. We shared the cherry tart with ice cream. A couple of glasses of wine and all is well.

Ketch 22 was great. We had brunch on Sunday, service was great, outside seating with umbrellas for shade, great views of the water, I could go on and on. Definitely a go to place for myself, family, guests and vendors. We have been there for dinner and happy hour as well. One of those spots you have to check out and you will frequent I guarantee!!

Busy but not packed on a Saturday evening. Service excellent, the food was really tasty and perfect sized portions. We tried beer, a bottle of wine and two key lime crushes, all great.

I had the wings and the fish and chips. They were both undercooked. The wings were tough and chewy. The fish was not light and flaky but really wet and sticky!

The primary reason I’d recommend this restaurant is because they had - by far- the BEST crab cake I have ever tasted. The rest of the food was pretty good but the crab cake was outstanding. The drinks tasted watered down. Service was food, prices were a little high for what it was. Patio area is a bit tight.

I like the menus, wine and beer selections and daily specials. You can eat inside, outside, at the bar or at a high top table. Even when full it does not feel overcrowded. The other dinners were fun and social. I do recommend a reservation for weekends, it was pretty busy.

It was our first time at Ketch22. We sat outside for a view of the water and the boats docked at the marina (very nice). The deviled eggs and poutine were good. The fish tacos, salad with crab cake, and strawberry spinach salad were very good. The goddess salad was not great with mostly lettuce and very little asparagus and roasted pepper and too much frisee lettuce. The service was quick and waitress was friendly. We'll definitely go back when we are in North Beach.

Everything about our experience was A++. We are locals in the area and just hadn’t gotten around to trying out this local gem. Since it was date night me and hubby decided to try it out. We made a reservation a week in advance. I called the day of to confirm. We sat on the inside as it appeared it was going to rain. We were seated quickly and our server came over in about 5 mins. We got drinks asked for more time to review the menu. Drinks came just quick enough. Bar order came a little later. We placed our order for appetizers. Got the crab cake and deviled eggs. Told server we wanted to try the crab cake as may order as entree. She was super cool about that even though it was a Friday night. She never made us feel rushed just welcome. The crab cake is to die for as are the deviled eggs. For dinner he got steak tacos. I got the dual crab cakes. Cucumber salad means just that. Cucumbers that have been a quick sweet pickling. YUM! Fries were great. Steak on tacos needed just a tad bit of salt. Otherwise were awesome. Crab cakes again were best I’ve ever had. We will definitely be back. Do not try and eat here without a reservation! You won’t get in. The place was solidly packed but I could still my dinner partner for conversation. Great views as well! Love it!

First visit to this restaurant. We frequent it’s sister restaurant in Arnold, The Point. Some menu items are the same and the quality is just as good. The view is not quite as good because it is a Marina view instead of straight water view, but you can walk outside for a better view. There is a nice deck with bar area which is available for food service, too. We choose Buffalo chicken wings and mussels fo appetizers. We all ordered the dinner special which was grilled shrimp and pineapple over vegetable couscous. All were delicious. We were there during Happy Hour so we chose beer and bar drinks at half price. We will return but it is a bit further from our home than the Point. It’s advantage is the we can make reservations through Open Table.

We took the time to make a reservation on Opentable and then I called to confirm an OUTDOOR seat. Upon arrival they said they had our reservation but didn’t have any tables available outside. We then waited 30 minutes for a table.

Our sever was very friendly and the ambiance outdoors looking at the boats is incredible!

The food was not good. My fish had way too much seasoning and my wife’s salad was all white leaves from Romain because the lady said they were out of spinach.

We love the view outdoors but the wait staff is incredibly incompetent. This is the third time now we’ve made a reservation OUTDOORS only to wait 20-40 minutes for a table.

Beautiful restaurant on the water with indoor and outdoor seating. All 5 of us enjoyed the food from a large, interesting menu. Two declared the crab cakes the best they’ve ever had. Good service for our party for a Fri afternoon lunch. Lots of parking across the street. We will be back and spread the word in the meantime.
