“Great meal and fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Had the spinach and grilled shrimp salad after a week without any real greens and it was very tasty. Friendly staff handled our surprise group on 10 without a problem and with smiles on a busy night.

“Great stop by the Airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

You can always judge a place by the local vs tourist ratio. Late Saturday night the place was a buzz with locals, menu was seafood with a Cuban flare. The mussels, oysters, crab legs and shrimp were all very good, but what makes this place great is the service and ambiance. Sit outside on the patio, live band started at 9pm and it turned into a great social evening. Definitely returning on my next visits to Miami. Tip: order a passion fruit mojito. Yummy!

“3 days on the toilet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We were highly recommended,Catch of the Day,by the receptionist at the hotel. That was a mistake..... They served me bad osters. I had allready had 3,witch were allright in taste,the rest had a really bad smell,and were green on the edges. I did not eat,the rest of the portion,but by then, it was too late. Im a chef in Denmark,and know how to look,and smell,detect a bad oster. The chef how served me bad osters,might just as well,take his education,all over.
3 days on the toilet,and in bed. What a nice way,to spend my days,in miami. Don't og there,it's like playing russian roulette.

“Good option in walking distance from Residence Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed a couple of nights pre-cruise in the Marriott Airport complex but weren't enamored with the restaurant choices in the hotels. Without a car, choices were limited. We walked across the street to Catch of the Day ... interesting place. Our server wasn't super attentive, friendly but a bit stand offish. Food was quite good. I ordered the Mahi fish bites (very yummy) and my husband had a pasta w/ shrimp. Best part of the meal was being in the flight pattern of MIA. We sat outside on the deck and had a perfect view of planes coming in almost directly overhead. Only negative was smoking allowed on the outside patio - yuck.

Catch of the Day isn't necessarily a place I'd go out of my way to eat at, but if I were in the area again, we would return.
