Highly recommend!!! We had chicken roulade, mussels and blackened shrimp on salad. Every mouthful was delicious. All the food was so fresh. The bread was hot out of oven and wonderful!!!! We will be back!!!

We were eating seafood as often as possible-and we chose this casual, no view, seafood and steak restaurant which pleased everyone. Our server was a charm. His southern accent and genuine happy spirit added to our happy occasion! Everyone was happy with their seafood-the guys had steak and were very happy-the women had seafood-scallops, shrimp. I had the seafood trio-scallops,... More

Ketch 55 dinner was our last night. We rented a house with friends, but they were looking for something inexpensive, and they went with pizza. We wanted one more fresh fish dinner, and we are so glad we chose Ketch 55. The tile fish just fell apart under my fork, but was still moist and flavorful. My daughter enjoyed her... More

Ketch 55 has the Best Shrimp and Grits I have found on the Outer Banks and beyond. Chef Seth creates delicious fresh specials each night with local seafoods. Always something delicious here. Excellent service.

By laid-back beach standards, this is an upscale restaurant, and a good choice for a nice meal - everything we'd hoped for. My swordfish special was fresh off the boat (from Hampton Roads) and perfectly cooked on a bed of orzo with a salsa of lightly cooked grape tomatoes. My wife had the seafood pasta from the menu and thought... More

We were in the Outer Banks for one week and ended up at Ketch 55 the first night, it is a very simple restaurant very nicely decorated, we were looking for some decent seafood and Ketch 55 met our expectations. Very fine cuisine, cooked perfectly and very well prepared. We went back several time during our trip and will definitely... More

First let me say that we considered not going based on previous reviews, but we're SO GLAD WE DID! We had a group of 10 adults at 7pm on a Wed night. We were seated quickly by the hostess. The waitress, Michelle, came right over and explained the specials, drink orders were taken, soon bread was on the table. Drinks... More

The staff at our hotel suggested this - and with good reason. Excellent food. Had very good seafood here. Prices a little more than I'm accustomed to for seafood, but it was served well prepared and was worth it!
