My wife and 2 daughters got there at about 5:30 at the were seated immediately but the crowd was starting to build. We had a very good waitress named Brit... she was very attentive and considerate of any need or request we had. One daughter had the swordfish which she liked very much. The rest of us had the crabcake... More

Spectacular seafood with a nice setting overlooking the bay marshes. Excellent food and service. Reservations strongly advised or be prepared for a very long wait. Great happy hour with great discounts on food and drink until 6pm daily!

My wife and I went here for the first time while having a beach weekend. Wait for table not too bad. My drink, Jack & Ginger Ale was made well and in large glass. Yum! The place has a limited menu. No traditional straight forward seafood dishes such as crabs, clams, etc. I did have crab cakes which were excellent... More

Situated on The Bay, you can't beat this dinner setting. Food is always excellent-steaks and seafood a like. They also have great mocktails too! We live in DC and consider ourselves foodies-and are spoiled by so many restaurants but when we are in OC MD, this is our favorite!

Consistently good food, which was almost always a trademark of any restaurant owned by the late Matt Haley. Very good calamari, and I loved the smoked bluefish dip served with their house-made chips. The oyster ceasar salad is another favorite. I like to sit at the bar and enjoy the view and happy hour specials. They also now have buck-a-shuck... More

Haven't been here since it burnt down and was rebuilt. The ambiance is lost..used to be open air, but now its just a building on a dock. Don't get me wrong, beautiful inside, and still amazing views for a sunset, but not the same vibe. Had a cauliflower soup that was to die for and the brussel sprout side was... More

I wish I could have given this restaurant an additional star as I am a fan of the chef/owner for quite some time. He is also owner of Blue Coast and Matt's Fish Camp in Bethany Beach which are two of my favorite go to places when I am there. Back to Catch 54- the food was wonderfully fresh and... More

We've gone for the past several years on our annual trip to Bethany Beach and have never been disappointed. Lovely setting, great food and reasonable-- have been with family & enjoyed as "evening out" as couples- fun bar too. Will continue to be an annual destination!

The worst restaurant experience of my life. We called ahead when they opened at 4pm to ask for a reservation for a party of 13. They told us that they do not take reservations but if we came on the earlier side they would do their best to accommodate us. When we arrived at the mostly empty restaurant at 6:30pm,... More

Catch 54 is definitely a step up from most of the restaurants in Ocean City. They unfortunately had a snag with their computer system going down the night we visited which resulted in an unfortunate hour wait, but honestly it was one of the few restaurants worth the wait. The mussels appetizer was one of the best mussel dishes I... More
