A few glitches in an otherwise lovely meal!

Catch 54 has the perfect décor for enjoying the bay and the wildlife while you dine. There isn’t a bad seat in the house with those high ceiling and huge windows overlooking the water. We decided to go on Monday which is oyster night. There are some dollar raw oysters to be had, but the special is... read more

Always hit Catch for happy hour and decided to split one of the specials - Braised short ribs. They were fork tender and tasty!! Great bartenders and staff. Get here!

There are two bars, one up and one down. The downstairs bar has some high top tables, and the upstairs bar has several booths. Happy hour drinks were good with several draft beers, house wines, and rail drinks at good prices. Apps were bigger portions than we expected for under $10 and very good calamari, shrimp boil, and cheeseburgers. The... More

So we had given up on this place - no reservations accepted, pricey and the crabcakes were not true MD fair (they were more "gourmet" with bits of pepper and things in the mix). Well, we decided to give it another try recently (Valentine's day) and they apparently have a new chef and a new crabcake recipe!! Two glorious, all-lump... More

We are locals who eat out often. This is a nice place with good food. The prices are kind of high considering what you get. (portions are small) Drink prices are high also but this is the beach and the tourists will pay. In my opinion, there are better values to be had very close by. The place burned down... More

Really cool restaurant and very good food. A little pricey in season but also have great specials off season. Decor is modern and comfy. Food is always good. Amazing fresh fish, also very tasty steaks. Good wine list, full bar. Great views and outdoor seating. Service is pretty good! Can be long waits when in season.

Enjoyed a light meal at "Catch 54" tonight. Recommend the Baked Crab Dip and it was fantastic! A must have when you dine there.

We've been to Catch 54 many times during the summer season. It's always been great, but typically crowded with a long wait for a table. It was nice to walk into the restaurant off season and get a table by the water. I had a kale salad that was really delicious and my entree was salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meals.... More
