Fabulous ribs

I have to say that the service and the location of this place was great. The ribs were terrific. I thought the price was a bit high. For example : A chicken fajita which normally goes for 12 bucks at the high end went to 18.95. That's a high end chicken. We did have a server by the name of... read more

Okay, we are foodies and after reading the TA reviews for The Ketch, we were really disappointed that my brother wanted to go here for his birthday dinner. But hey, his bday, his choice, so we went expecting the worst. They had us sitting upstairs but gladly relocated us without any fuss on a busy Friday night. Our waitress was... More

Although I didn't eat her, it was a very nice relaxing place to go for drinks overlooking the water.

Have eaten at the Ketch a few times over the years. I am not sure what has happened to this restaurant. The hostess was unfriendly and seemed to have an attitude (definitely not the right job for this person). Our server informed us that he was a "fill in" server.....what does this mean? Was he just thrown in to serve... More

We went to watch the sunset at the Ketch. Beautiful spot for that! We had the lobster special. The bartender Matt was friendly and was happy to share some local info. We returned the next night with the family. We originally were just going to order a bunch of appetizers. The woman who was at the hostess station was less... More

After hearing that there was an outdoor bar, great for happy hour, four of us went to try it out. The OWNER, came up to our table and cleared everything, told us we had five minutes to finish our drinks because she had someone who wanted to sit and eat dinner. That was the whole conversation, the waitress has to... More

Visiting the area from Florida, the location is awesome the place was packed. We had a 15 minute wait which was not bad at all, unfortunately they must have been understaffed and which we had a fill in for a server... Our group had 6 people... Unfortunately I believe the kitchen was also understaffed in which two of the 64... More

Really nice place located a block from the bay so the sunset view is amazing. There are two bars located upstairs and are open air so although there may be a wait, you can still gather at the bar with a cocktail and see the sunset. The upstairs also includes a lounge type area with couches and low tables. You... More

Get to the Ketch an hour before sunset and be sure to get a set on the deck. Get yourself some delicious steamers with an ice cold Corona and watch the Sun dip into the bay. There's nothing like it on the island!!!!

We stumbled upon The Ketch looking for a place to watch the sunset over the bay !!! Luckily for us, we found the upstairs deck to have a bar with a very friendly and attentive bartender !!! Food was a little pricey, but drinks were good and the people were all very nice.
