I should have known better when the menu stated "New Orleans Style" I questioned the server just what that meant and she advised that they put a sauce over the crab cakes. I asked how were the crab cakes without the sauce and she assured me that everyone enjoyed them. So I ordered them with the sauce on the side.... More

We loved the food here! Everyone in our party of five enjoyed their dinner. The trivial pursuits cards at the table were fun. Very nice atmosphere and great service.

This place brings 'leisurely dining' to a whole new level. We arrived for dinner at 7:45 pm and ordered appetizers right away. The appetizer did not show up until 8:30 pm. We inquired about how slow the kitchen was in responding to our order and was told by the hostess that it was our fault for arriving after a party... More

Awesome food great service, had 8 adults, went early 5:30 but followed review and called early to put name on wait list. Worked well. Burgers, blackened mahi, calamari, tuna, even the bread and oils great. Will go again.

Called to make reservations for 6. They do not take reservations but do use call ahead seating....recommended! It does get very busy, as do most good restaurants tend to do. This is our second time at this location and we had the same server, Rob. A very good server who made a great recommendation for a wine for my mother... More

Wonderful variety of slightly upscale seafood dishes... The Shrimp n Grits was fantastic, as was the Bay Scallop Martini. Caprese salad was just ok but that could the fault of the tomatoes. The " market priced" steaks my husband and son ordered were lacking in flavor and were quite gristly, but the accompanying goat cheese mashed potatoes were a big... More

Party of 7 seated quickly at 6:00pm on a Saturday. Had some different dishes than the traditional places. We all were very happy with dinner and we ate 6 different entrees, my son said his shrimp and grits "was one of the best meals he has ever had" (granted he is 15 and normally a burger expert). Fresh fish was... More

Terrific restaurant! How can you please 9 people for dinner? Go to Ketch 55! Perfectly grilled Salmon over a cake of grits spiced gently to perfection, all topped with baby butter beans. The presentation beautiful. The service impeccable by Bobby! Other entrées, sushi tuna over a bed of spinach, pork and yams, hamburger, crab soup, seafood combos with red sauce... More

Tried to make reservation all day no answer. Then finally an hour before opening got through and made a reservation for 7 at 630. When we arrived a young gal said they were cleaning our table and it would be 10 minutes. She would come get us as we waited outside. Well about three parties of 6 or 7 people... More
