The food and service were excellent and when they tell you that they are known for special dishes listen Shrimp and Grits exceptional

Heard about this place via friend of friend. Husband really wanted good shrimp and grits and they had them! Good menu, lots of cocktail options, nice wine list & good beer selection. We had the scallop bacon martini appetizer - very good - very! Spicy but I like that. In addition to the shrimp and grits I had the grilled... More

So we ended up here on a whim.. We actually were headed to Froggy Dog. They ended up being closed and boy am I thankful for that! We had a large group of 13.. We figured we would have to split up.. No problem.. They accommodated us easily.. I want to really express how happy I was with the service... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant, read all those glowing reviews and innocently entered a kind of restaurant purgatory. We were seated promptly, given water and menus and watched our waiter disappear. He was like a ghostly apparition that took shape at rare intervals and after he took our order, vanished almost completely. He promised many things, appetizers, bread... More

Our waiter only had 5 tables, yet couldn't keep up. Some could be blamed on the kitchen, but the waiter couldn't even keep up with the drinks. When the 5th table became occupied, apparently well known in the restaurant, they were waited on, not only by our waiter, but the hostess and the bartender. With "ok" food at best, after... More

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.
