Nice Happy Hour

Last minute decision to go to Catch 54 after traffic backup on coastal highway in OC. Interesting selection of items on Happy hour menu including deviled eggs, calamari and parmesan tater tots. All excellent. Drinks were good, not great. Ocean Cosmo drink was eh. Newer restaurant with small parking... read more

Trendy upscale restaurant for a beach town. They had a new twist on one of my old favorites - Gumbo - base was grits instead of rice. The seafood in it was fresh and the salmon there is good also. I was never a fan of mussels until I tried them at Catch 54! We will definitely return here for... More

The seafood here is very good and fresh. The view over the bay is also nice. We eat here several times whenever we stay in Ocean City.

So my husband and I went to Catch 54 for a nice dinner...we are in the area quite a bit but had never eaten there. First things first...the entire restaurant is hardscaped so it's not exactly a quiet place to eat. It's ok...it's the beach. Many restaurants are noisey. We sat down to order. Our server was nice and we... More

The physical restaurant at Catch 54 has been around in several incarnations, most of which barely passed as fair seafood at the beach or, in the case of Catch 54, on the Assawoman Bay. A fire at Catch 54 a couple of years ago caused the SoDel Concepts owners to refigure the place, craft a new kitchen and menu, and... More

Excellent food. Shaved Brussels sprouts with pistachios. Gumbo. Seared scallops. All artfully and deliciously prepared. When they found out it was our 38th anniversary they gave us a quiet table for two on the deck and waterside. Also gave us two glasses of champagne on the house. Couldn't have been happier. Best key lime pie this side of Key West.

We were on vacation in Ocean City, and I was hesitant to try this restaurant because I had read some not so good reviews on the web. However, and fortunately for us, I planned to stop for lunch on our way to Ocean City, our first stop. We were not disappointed!!! And we came back twice more during our vacation.... More

Excellent food with a flare! We enjoy sunsets at the bar in the back with great appetizers and drinks. The food here is outstanding and presented nicely, too! We held a Sunday brunch here after granddaughter's baptism and they did a superb job!

Great view from the upper, back deck. Food was excellent. Both salmon and swordfish were moist, nicely seasoned and grilled to perfection. Veggies were crisp and lightly seasoned. Wine was a bit pricey. Good beer selection though. Wait staff could have been a bit more attentive. Overall, a great alternative to the overcrowded venues of Ocean City.
