There are some restaurants that think they can charge high prices for average food. Fresh Catch is not one of those. The prices are high but the food is truly exceptional. We had a memorable dinner there on a busy weeknight. I had the Grouper Caprese and another in our party had the pecan-crusted grouper. Both meals were truly works... More

We ate here about 6pm on a Friday evening, just as the sun was setting. We had a reservation and got a window view, but not a window table. They were very busy, and our server Robyn provided professional and wonderful service. The grilled grouper I ordered was very good, as was the asparagus side. My friends food was also... More

This was our second visit to Fresh Catch and it was even better than I remembered. There were three in our party and we all had grouper, each prepared differently and all thought ours was the best! The service was excellent and the view, perfect. Will definitely be going back!

Food was good, better than average, the atmosphere was great! If you plan on going, do yourself a favor and reserve yourself a table outside on the deck against deck railing for a unbelieble sunset dinner.

Picture a wall of six foot windows overlooking the Gulf of Mexico . Picture sitting there during the brightness of the day or the beauty of a sunset. Picture dining on delicious seafood prepared to order. All the seafood is fresh. The staff always present to answer your needs. The seafood is fresh and cooked to your preference. Imagine that.
