Disappointed that a beautiful restaurant could be so bad

Had lunch here. Sat at the bar. Ordered the drink special of the day. Guy that was bartending couldn't find anybody that knew how to make it or the right ingredients either. Switched my order to wine and ordered food. We were served food but not given napkins or utensils. Went and got them... read more

I recently had dinner with friends at "Catches" in New Port Richey. We got there early so there was still plenty of empty tables. The restaurant has a very open, comfortable feel. It is on the watefront. The staff is friendly and the service was good. The menu has a wide selection, with seafood being the main fare.The prices vary... More

Been to Catches a number of times with my wife and family from Penna.....Don't know what the problem with this place is, but the food was terrible, and the service even worse....It doesn't matter how many people are in the place, the service was bad, everything was bad...Plus it's expensive. Gave the place more than a chance (figured that we... More

This was my first visit to Catches and since it was my in0laws 67th wedding anniversary, we wanted to select somewhere that took reservations because my father-in-law is in a wheel chair and cannot wait hours at a restaurant to be seated. With that in mind, we made reservations for 5 pm and were seated quickly. To address the previous... More

The only thing Catches did right tonight was seat us according to our 7:00pm reservation. This allowed us to keep perfect time as to how long we were sitting in total disappointment. We were a table of six. (Three couples). We had no silverware or appetizer plates. It took our server 20 minutes to greet our table and take our... More

We arrived at the restaurant with great hopes, for other meals at other times had been excellent. I had already raved to my guests about the bread and fantastic dipping oil. The waitress took our order for drinks and told us she would be bringing bread and oil in a few moments. Drinks arrived and no bread or oil. We... More
