Just not all that good. I had the crab cakes and they just did not have any crab in them and had very little taste. The place is beautiful, so I hate that the food is not that good.
The service was fantastic, and the food was "fine". I ordered the Lobster Roll and unfortunately it was my butter than lobster. Hush puppies were to die for, though!
Awesome find many restaurants in Roswell all our pretty good. Glad we found this one to put on the rotation.
Great hushpuppie appetizers and delicious salmon and shrimp.
Thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit. Food and drinks were very good and Patryce, our server, was pleasant and helpful.
Great experience and food. We will definitely be dining there again. They have a really neat outdoor dining experience we will try when it cools off a bit.
Service and food were outstanding! I can’t wait to come back!
First time to try Big Ketch. Food was disappointing. Starter dishes calamari and muscles were good, but stingy portions. I ordered tuna steak and vegetables. Fish was wet (uncooked) and whole plate was drowning in super salty soy sauce -- yikes! Was still thirsty this morning. Service was spotty. Young waiter disappeared when water refills were needed. The one saving grace was the one man live band performing hits from 70s and 80s. He was great. Will try to catch him performing at another establishment.
The lobster roll was small but delicious. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. The band table for two was playing in the bar and they were awesome. Really enjoyed the live music.
Great food and service. My only complaint was that the smoked fish dip was way too smoky! I will be back and would definitely recommend going:)
We've enjoyed Big Ketch for several years now and will go back. Our experience this week, however, was a bit disappointing. Two things: While the server was friendly, we had to ask several times for things like straws (only 1 brought to table), lemon slices for water (requested twice). Second, our appetizer was a dozen (fairly expensive) oysters on the half shell. Probably 8 of the 12 were so small they were literally hard to see. We will return but are hopefully that the service and caliber of food are improved.
Beautiful evening to enjoy their outdoor space! Amazing food and tentative wait staff!
It was a great experience. Fresh and delicious see food.
We sat outside on the patio - initially in shade but eventually part of the table was in the sun. Very pleasant because the noise was minimal so the 5 of us could chat easily. Food was delicious. Some mix-ups with orders but graciously corrected. I think they were short staffed so it seemed we waited a long time for one of the wait staff to come by.
This was our second visit and both times we greatly enjoyed the atmosphere, food and drinks, as well as the service was very friendly and on top of things without hovering. We really like coming here and will come again.
Great food and service. We had a group of 6 and were seated at a round table which was perfect for talking.
On two different occasions a waitress tried to give us someone else's meal. Our wine stayed on the bar waiting to be served to us but the waitress was talking with her colleague and didn't notice it. The fish taco was very light on the fish.
On a positive note, the oysters were the best I've had in a while as were the hush puppies.
Generally not a good overall experience.
Went to celebrate Husbands Birthday. Everything was wonderful. Best scallops we’ve ever had!
Very nice atmosphere and fresh menu items! Food and service was excellent!
Had dinner Thursday night. Food was awesome and Jay is a GREAT waiter!
We chose TBK for a birthday celebration - fortunately for us we went on a Wednesday when the Chef makes lobster egg rolls. So good. Definitely order them if you can. The shrimp and grits and crab cakes were both lovely - lots of shrimp and bacon with just enough sauce but not so the dish was drowning - and the crab cakes were way more crabby then cakey. The butter/lemon sauce that they came with was a nice addition. We will definitely go back. The service was friendly and attentive - offering up suggestions when asked. A great evening.
Located in downtown historic Roswell, Ga ..... Made great use of couple prior residences to forge The Big Ketch into a comfortable and visually appealing restaurant. Good seafood menu with their own creative style. Weather permitting, outside is my favorite place to dine, especially for a casual business meal. Good alcohol and wine selection. We were fortunate in receiving great service from the seasoned and mature waitress. They were very engaging and knowledgeable with both the menu and cocktail & wine selections.
I prefer this location over the Buckhead location. The BK-Canton Street is more laid back which works for the clientele base that Roswell, GA caters too. The experience began with a very likable valet attendant and protracted with the accommodating reception staff.
I will continue to be a patron of the Big Ketch on Canton Street.
The food and the service were fabulous! We were seated in the dining room with the singer/guitar player, and it was a little noisy for conversations. We will definitely recommend to others and can't wait for our next visit.
My birthday celebration at The Big Ketch was a lot of fun. The food was outstanding (my second time here) and the service was excellent. The four of us (family members) had a good time. It was quiet enough for us to chat comfortably (we had a 6:00 reservation on a Wednesday), which we appreciate. Don't like it when the restaurant of our choice is noisy! We would love to return at a future date!
Enjoy the experience each time I dine there! Love the crab cakes! Modern rustic ambiance!!
We Love their Lobster Roll!! Our server was friendly and right there if we needed anything.
What a nice makeover of Naylor Hall. We dined Al Fresco and had a very enjoyable evening. The scallops were perfection as was the grouper. We’ll be back.
There are several good gluten-free options. The salmon was excellent! The service has been great each time we've been.
Server said there was an issue in the kitchen... not sure but it took over an hour to get our food. Ridiculous! And may I add the restaurant was not full.
The Big Ketch is a great place to go, creative food selections and great service. We were greeted by Jamie, assistant manager, upon arrival. She welcomed us back and immediately showed us to our table. The Big Ketch offers outside, bar and dining room seating. Very energetic environment. Once seated the general manager, Cesar, welcomed us back. He had prepared a special cod dish for a member of our group, the remainder had the lobster roll with french fries. Patyce, our server, provided excellent service. Our drinks were topped off and plates cleared. Patyce was very friendly and took very good care of us. Cesar checked back several times to ensure that everything was to our liking. We totally enjoyed our experience at The Big Ketch and look forward to a return visit.
The greeting and seating was professional. Our server, Patryce, was knowledgeable and attentive to our desires. We (4) went there with a purpose -- The Lobster rolls (Gold Standard) and a Special Cod dinner.
Perfect! Well worth the trip (again) and highly recommended. Parking is a problem -- must use Valet service.
food & service were both great. For a husband & wife on a date night the booths for 2 would have been preferred rather than the room that felt like it was for large groups or families with kids. probably would've stayed longer if sat in a more comfortable area. That part of the dining area was still pretty bare when we left. With being said i would come back for the lobster roll.
Building and facility was beautiful. We were there 25-30 minutes before our order was taken and the restaurant wasn't very busy at all. By the time we finished our meal it was 15 minutes between asking for the check and receiving it. Very disappointed in the service and the portion sizes were not very good as well. Much different restaurant compared to the one in Buckhead for sure.
Great restaurant, great food, good service and nice outdoor seating.
not worth the cost of the food, nothing was wrong just have had much better
Brussels sprouts are amazing! I keep going back for them. Service could use some work, we felt rushed and we do nearly every time we go.
Fabulous lobster roll. Served with melted butter. Had roasted Brussels sprouts with it. Yum.
Overall good experience!! Did not get a glass of Merlot , like my friend and I wanted. All entrees were delicious and Brussels sprouts and hush puppies were fantastic!!
We will visit again!
We sat outside by ourselves. Very quiet. Cheerful and prompt service. My fish was cooked just right, as were the vegetables. The key lime pie was superb.
