We ate outside on the lower patio deck and enjoyed the fantastic view. The Steamed Clams were very good...my wife loved her Grilled Swordfish (served on bed of mash potatoes) and my Fish and Chips was delicious....tender juicy Atlantic Cod with homemade tartar. The Sangria was very different...no fruit. Our server was very attentive and familiar with the menu. Very... More

Lukewarm oysters cold fries waiter and manager in absentia need I saw more. I've enjoyed many meals here until tonight. Talk about customer service, you can't even talk to anyone or leave s message. Very disappointing.

This is becoming a summer favorite. We ordered the mussels which were delicious-a somewhat unique honey mustard sauce. We also order clams which too, were very tasty. As for entrees, we had the seafood gumbo and crabcakes. Both were well presented and delicious. We asked for the fresh veggies and roasted brussel sprouts(one of our favorite dishes) and both were...

Mom liked the crabcake. Overall we did not care for the menu and the food is overpriced. One family member ordered a special homemade bottled drink that she did not finish after tasting it. Parking is horrendous.

What a great seafood restaurant. The menu isn't the biggest but all the food is very good. The view is of the bay and there is plenty of nearby parking.

Our family "policy" is that we try one new restaurant each year during our week+ stay in ocean city. I read about Catch 54 and it sounded like something we would enjoy and we really did! My daughter got the kids shrimp, my son and I got the crab mac and cheese and my husband got the soft shell crab... More

We went to this restaurant on our last night during our vacation. We sat in the back and thoroughly enjoyed the view of the bay. It was so nice and relaxing. Everything about this restaurant was great! Service was friendly and efficient. The food served at our table was delicious, including the bread! I had soft shell crabs, my husband... More

One of the best places at the beach for a meal with a view. Go early and sit on the back deck. Great view of the bay! Our family party of 8 dines at Catch 54 every beach week and have a great meal together every time. The mixed drinks are really good and they have some great choices. The... More

We stopped in for happy hour on a Monday. There were 2 bars 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. We sat down stairs since it was less crowded. My husband got oysters and clams. They were very fresh and we watched them open them right in front of us. We also got the Md crab soup and the cheeseburger. Every thing... More

We liked Catch 54 so much that we ate there twice during our week at the beach! Each time the service was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. The baked crab dip is a generous serving and comes with home-cooked chips. Theoretically, you're not supposed to order oysters in months without an "r," but ignore that advice and... More
