“Really Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

My husband and I both had the shrimp and scallops. It was amazing. The food was cooked perfectly, the presentation of the meal was great and the service was excellent.

“A neat marina restauranton the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We enjoyed a nice lunch at Fresh Ketch. The food was good, but the service was a little slow...they seemed to be short-staffed. But it was nice experience with a great view of the lake from the marina.

“Susanshare0910”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

My cousin and her husband brought us to this lovely, quaint place on the south side of Lake Tahoe recently to enjoy a most delicious lunch. They provide a full course menu from "starters" to "sandwiches" and everything in between. They offer a "fresh" fish catch of the day which varies daily but is definitely worth asking about. We had the "Gioppino" which is a variation of sea scallops, clams, mussels, mahi mahi, Maine lobster claws, and shrimp. We also had orders for the "Crab Melt" and "Fish Tacos" and we all walked out with go boxes because their servings were soooooooooo generous! We were fortunate to have a beautiful, sunny day and ate outside where the boats were docked. It was very, very picturesque!!

“A Great Catch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We ate at the Fresh Ketch at the Tahoe Marina this week and were just as happy with at as a year ago, when we first visited. It is a lovely spot, though hard to find, and has a superb view of the evening sky at sunset.(we had a nice window table upstairs. The seafood is amazing. My partner had some stuffed Halibut that was as good as he has ever had. The creamy clam chowder is also excellent. The server was personable and very attentive. Kept our coffee cups full through the whole dinner. which we asked for.I had been yearning for Fish & chips and was served a very large, crispy portion - well cooked and great fries. We look forward to returning again next fall.

“Rehearsal dinner - planning was impossible, event was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

When I initially contacted Belen about hosting our rehearsal here, she was very helpful. After I paid the deposit, she was non-existent. Thank goodness for Manager Amy! It took me three weeks to get ahold of Belen when it was time to set the menu, she then was too busy to take my call or return any form of message before she left on her vacation. Amy took over (we were two weeks out and Belen wasn't coming back for a week and a half ) and we had the menu set that day. From there everything went smoothly, although when Belen called to confirm everything - she seemed clueless as to why I might be less than excited about her service. We did not see her during the event. Service was ok, food was good and plentiful.
