This is one of o ky a few restaurant on Lake Tahoe. It's a little hard to find the marina of the keys but if you find it you will be pleasantly surprised. They serve their fish in several styles to choose. The good is fresh and delicious.

Fresh Ketch is a nice restaurant and bar garden overlooking the local marina. It has outdoor bar table style seating, live music when we were there and a very relaxed atmosphere. The food is bar style seafood dishes, including dishes such as scallops on risotto and seafood tacos. Good value for money and large portions, although not exceptional gourmet style... More

Our Tahoe trip for a birthday celebration included drinks and dinner on the special day at Fresh Ketch. I was a bit nervous after reading some of the reviews but then I remembered during my days as a travel agent that some customers can never be pleased. We loved our entire evening at Fresh Ketch starting with drinks and appetizers... More

This isn't fine dining, but it's a ton of fun. You can sit outside along the marina and watch the boats come and go while you sip on a rum runner and munch a fish taco. Of course there's full bar as well and dinner entrees nightly including nicely prepared fish and an adequate bar steak. We never miss the... More

Got seated right away, then the service declined. Sat at our table for a good 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged we were there, took another 15 to get someone to take our dinner order. Crab cakes were more bread than anything else. When we asked what the fresh catch of the day was, we were told they were out... More

This is my third time eating at the Fresh Ketch over the last 5 years. In the past I have enjoyed the ambiance of sitting by the marina and the food. But this past weekend I met a friend around 2pm for a late lunch. Both of us ordered salads, one of which was a Caesar Salad with adding chicken.... More

I was saddened and disappointed with the entire dining experience that should have been a wonderful celebration for our parents 60th wedding anniversary. We sat for an hour and a half without being offered water or bread. Our drinks were supposedly taken by two servers and still we had to ask for them. After two discussions with management and still... More

I have owned a home in the area for 32 years. I've eaten at Fresh Ketch for the past 20+ years. It was the best fish restaurant in the area for many years. My wife and I ate there July 5th, 2014. She had the fish taco's...blacken and they were good. I had the oysters Rockefeller and they were the... More

We've dined here many times and is one of our local favorites. However, with a recent change in management we were very disappointed. Most of the unique "comfort" dishes had been removed from the menu. Ex. Pot pie, meat loaf. The only thing that remained from our once favorite place was Vinny Berry and his awesome Seagull guitar. He has... More

We were referred there by a local and were very pleased. We had lunch on the deck which overlooks a beautiful marina. Our server was prompt and very pleasant. We enjoyed our drinks and our lunch arrived quickly. We both ordered fish tacos. My wife ordered salmon and mine was blackened mahi mahi. The fish was well seasoned and hot... More
