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

We keep our boat at the Tahoe Keys Marina for part of the summer months, so we like the fun vibe of this place. The food is always good, whether it's salads, burgers, or full dinners. The fish offerings are usually consistently good. The best way to enjoy The Fresh Ketch is outside, watching the boats cruising the marina. Be... More

This is a nice restaurant that features seafood but has a good selection of other entrés as well. There is nightly entertainment in the bar area which can get very loud but if you sit outside you can enjoy the view of the dock and lake and still listen to the music while being able to carry on a conversation....

Three of us shared appetizers for lunch, peel and eat prawns, 2 orders of steamers, garlic bread & crab cakes. All delicious, I wanted to pick up the steamer bowl and finish the broth! The garlic bread arrived in a bread mound, baked with herbs and topped with whole roasted garlic. If I had to leave anything out, it would... More

This a nice restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating over looking the marina in the Tahoe Keys. We went here for lunch and my husband ordered the grilled salmon and I got the fish and chips. The salmon was a very attractive dish topped with decorative veggies and capers and it was cooked perfectly. I got two large pieces of... More

We were disappointed in the food, service and atmosphere. Mahi dish was served on a cold plate. Prices are pretty high for what you get. Our waiter was young and inexperienced and didn't seem to know what he was doing. We asked for better service and received it from the cocktail server. She was very nice and came to check... More

We had heard this was an excellent restaurant. Was a bit of a drive . . . and perhaps we just picked the wrong day. First, we wanted to sit outside on the deck overlooking the water, but we were soon moved because of some construction project that by the time we left, still hadn't started. We moved to another...

Wednesday evening for dinner. Both entrees, lamb chops & sea food linguini, were excellent. We elected to eat upstairs, but both patio and downstairs seating were available. Unfortunately for us the service was SO SLOW. Our server was very pleasant, but we found inattentive. Who knows what the problem was.
