It was Father’s Day, and pretty crowded. They were able to seat us promptly due to our reservation. My daughters diet is sometimes complicated due to gastrointestinal problems. They were very accommodating with making small changes in order to assist with her special diet. It was a little noisy due to the kids. We really enjoyed the meal.

Was expecting more. They seemed to be out if everything we wanted to order even a Caesar salad and calamari at 3:00 in the afternoon. Disappointing!

We met the manager who was very attentive and made sure we had an excellent dining experience. We love how kid friendly it is and the lobster bisque is enough for us to make a second trip

The fried calamari was good and the grouper was okay but the lobster roll was a joke. It contained hardly any lobster meat and what meat there was tasted like cardboard. Without the lobster, it was a nice buttered roll for $20.

Came to town on business and brought the wife along and we were doing our usual date night thing and you guys made the evening great. The service was top notch, the food over the top, we loved everything about our experience. Will visit again before we leave town and will recommend it to everyone we know both here and out of town.

It was almost toooooooo loud for us. They have the live entertainment piped into the restaurant from the bar. I would cut that out and you could still hear the music and it would not be overpowering. The shrimp and grits were very good but not the best I've had. They said the fried shrimp were excellent. The shrimp and crab dip was very good also. I would definitely recommend the dip. The mussels sauce was tasteless from what I was told by the two that had that. Overall it was okay but it will be awhile before I return.

Great seafood at excellent prices in an uncluttered almost diner like atmosphere. Service was very good and not pushy. Food was very good, salmon was overcooked and sent back. Apologies made and new came out fine. Very nice outdoor eating area. Interesting find at the end of a strip mall. Worth it

Great value for fish and seafood, consistently prepared. Good choices for wine and beer as well as live music from singing guitarist. Patio seating will continue to draw through the summer months.

The service here was good from getting seated to the waitress. The food was very average. The lobster/crab bisque was mostly crab. The roasted oysters were ok. 4 oysters for $10....not the best. The calamari was overcooked.

Again, great waitstaff and average food. Good ambiance and kid friendly.

Growing up on a beach in South Georgia I am very picky about seafood. I have lived in Atlanta now for 5 years and have never found a seafood restaurant I enjoy, until going to the Big Ketch!

I went on a double date and it was perfect setting and price to spend time with some close friends.

$5 House Cocktails were great, and the Shrimp and Crab Appetizer Dip is some of the best I have ever had. I will be returning

Ordered calamari and shrimp appetizers which were battered, deep fried, and greasy. Worse than any I've had at stands on the beach! The lobster rolls which are supposed to be one of their favorites were not like any lobster I've had. Small shredded pieces drowned in butter on small buns that were also greasy. It's a shame the food is so bad because the outdoor seating and guitarist were really nice.
