“Seafood elevated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

You have to pay attention, particularly after dark. Easy to drive past the unpretentious location, strip mall on a road with a little of everything. The flounder was perfectly cooked, layered on collards & sweet taters. Nice combo. One of our diners had the oysters on blue cheese slaw as an entree, and was delighted with the result. The blackened catfish did not get as good a review by our third diner ... a bit unevenly cut and cooked. The deserts were excellent and very reasonably proportioned. Service was entertaining and attentive by Tanika. Will eat there again!

“Another Great Evening with Keith and Angela at Catch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Had another amazing evening visiting with Keith and Angela at Catch. The flounder was out of this world...and service from Mimi was awesome. Thank you for making another night special for us.

“Satisfied diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

11/16/12 was out 3rd visit this year. It gets better every time! The grilled bread with olive oil was a special treat especially when combined with the roasted vegetable salad. The scollops and crab cakes were delicious. A special order martini was delivered perfectly and the draft beer selection is excellent. The service was efficient and attentive without being too intrusive. We can't wait for the 4th visit.

“Upscale Dining/ Not family oriented”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Stopped in early on a Tues evening in Oct after hearing about Catch on Top Chef and reviewing on Tripadvisor. The dining room is quiet, minimalistic (nice and uncluttered), with vibrant blue walls displaying local artwork. Behind hostess stand to right of bar was fresh basil under grow lights. Our service was prompt, knowledgeable, but matter of fact w/o any southern charm. We were served a bread basket w/ 2 thin slices of "cracker sized" bread-unimpressed. We ordered drinks-expensive, but unique and shared a Firecracker Shrimp appetizer-turned out to be the hit of hubby's visit. He ordered the catfish with collards (smallest serving of fish I've ever seen), however the collards were well seasoned. I decided on the softshell crabs-which were fantastic. 2 drinks/1 appetizer/2 entrees over $100! Recommend for quiet upscale dining, but not family oriented or if missed lunch and you're starving.

“The best fish ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Our party of four dined at Catch, Saturday 11/17/12. For two in our party it was their first time there. We all had diffrent appetizers and main courses and we shared. The food was excelllent, the service was exceptional. If your looking for fried fish this is not your restaurant. The Owner/Chef prepares each dish with tender loving care, and each dish is a truely a wonderful taste experience. We will definitely return as well as our friends. Bravo, Keith and staff.
