Another Nice SODEL Restaurant

We had an early happy hour dinner in the bar area. Their bar area is very nice with bar and high top tables, a fire place and great water views. The off season happy hour was great!

Best oysters you'll ever enjoy! Enjoy either on bar side during happy hour for a buck a shuck, or Tuesdays (dollar oyster and oyster dinner specials) I LOVE this place! Am an oyster snob and this place does not disappoint. Enjoy some of the best eastern shore oysters on the planet here! The entire menu is a delight and delicious!... More

We held a fundraiser for a non-profit in the upstairs room at Catch 54. There were over 100 people present and we dined on mouthwatering hors d'ouvers. Everything was fresh, delicious and abundant. The staff was amazing, attending to the needs of a diverse crowd and responding to our every need. Our friends from the Washington, DC area who eat... More

I also went to the fundraiser at Catch 54 on Oct. 24th and thought it was fantastic!! The food was SO good -- smoked salmon canapés, crab cake spoons, spiced shrimp skewers, steamed shrimp. I don't usually eat much at fundraisers, but I was absolutely stuffed when I left. The service was perfect, good wine, gorgeous view. I will go... More

I just wanted to give a shout out to Lauren Bohager of Catch 54 for excellent customer service. She promptly addressed my concern and resolved it immediately. Other restaurants should take note!

Awesome meals and great service. Loved the food and they prepared 44 perfect meals for the rehearsal dinner. We are so glad this was recommended tous. I can't imagine a better place. So glad the rehearsal dinner was here. Had we not had the nor'easter winds and rain, the view would have matched a perfect night. Best bread ever.

Restaurant is right on the water for nice sunset views. Went for dinner - had awesome crabcakes- tasty and no filler. Friend had the shrimp and grits and ate it all/loved it. Laid back atmosphere and nice re-done attached bar. Had driven by it many years and wish I had tried it earlier. Would go back.

I recently visited my friend in the Fenwick Island area to celebrate my birthday. This is a tradition for us, and she always takes me somewhere new and special. She took me to Catch 54 this birthday, as she knew I would enjoy the views of the water, which were spectacular! However, the latest reservation they would allow was 6PM.... More

We were four adults and two 5 year-olds looking for something other than, "Yet another crab shack" near Fenwick. Catch 54 did the trick, and how. The setting and service are great - they strike a good balance in giving the impression, 'this is somewhat upscale, but you're on vacation, so relax'. Flip flops or Gucci's - whatever floats yer...
