little heavy on the sauces but delish and just the right portions
Attentive service. Delicious bisque and trout. Will be back!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Excellent!!
We are return visitors. Excellent reception and seating. The server, Tara, was competent and “just right” attentive. We enjoyed three orders of the “Gold Standard” Lobster rolls and one Special Order of Cod fish & Chips. The servings were prompt, correct, and right temperature. Worth the drive.
My friend loved the brussel sprouts - the best ever according to her. Portions were nice sized and food was delicious
Server very helpful is splitting portions for sharing .
Server was awful. No manners. Abrupt. Demanding. Spilled water all over us and didn’t apologize. Brought us towels to clean up her accident. Offered nothing not even an apology.
The staff was the best!!! They made my experience so good that I’ll be going back here a lot.
We had a medium group on a Saturday and the team at TBK did a great job on seating and service. Really appreciate the attention and as always, the yummy food! Kudos to Jennifer for pacing out the order taking and service; it was just right for our little occasion and all at the table left happy.
Food was very good, excellent taste, moist and plentiful. All the staff are very nice.
We had a fabulous evening birthday celebration on the patio at Big Ketch. New heaters offset the fall chill, and attentive, cordial service created a relaxed surrounding that warmed our celebration. Food was excellent - best hush puppies I’ve ever tasted - but as with all restaurants, the wine is overpriced. Other item prices are reasonable as opposed to rampant inflation in the historic Roswell area. BK gets my vote!!
Great dinner at a great restaurant with great friends.
We will be back. Great food and outdoor. Excellent location.
We felt rushed through the process. Like they were trying to turn the table over even though there was plenty of open tables. Our server was sub par. She didn’t go into the specials, didn’t suggest anything, and wasn’t around when we needed drinks or to order. The food wasn’t great and on a street filled with some of our favorite spots, we will not be back.
The only issue we had was the wait to be acknowledged to be seated for our reservation. It was not a busy night and was pretty empty actually. Yet there was no one paying attention to the entryway to greet us. Overall, the food and our server made up for the poor beginning.
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!
