My parents, husband, and I had dinner at Catches on 7/27. I am disappointed that we can't recall the waiter's name- as he was incredible (gentleman with light brown hair and mustache). Waiter was attentive and very well versed on the menu, as well as the quality and taste of the fish for the day. I tried both the Cucumber... More

Food is decent, a bit formal, eat inside as they have fly issues outside. Then head outside and catch the view as it is good. Family oriented place or romantic dinner.

I have visited this restaurant for 15 years. Prices have increased naturally. But the fish is fresh. Service is excellent. Also a nice view of the water. Nice environment

This place is hit or miss with both service and food. It is really two ends of the spectrum...either really good or absolutely horrible. The music and atmosphere are always awesome! Wish they would focus on quality and better service and we might make it one of our local places again.

Family ate here one stormy evening. When we went inside the manager told us 45 min to 1 hr wait. What?! The parking lot wasn't full and we could see empty tables. The wait for indoor seating was actually 30 min, thank goodness. The menu was huge, the seafood good but not outstanding. My hog fish was overcooked and hard... More

While in Port Richey we wanted to eat at some local places and chose Catches because we thought it was all you could eat fish but it was the wrong night. The food and service was excellent!! They also had a band in the Tiki bar but we didn't go in there.

Nice change of pace to try new places. We love to eat on the water so if it's not too hot you can enjoy eating on the patio & listen to the music from Whiskey River across the way. Great service from our server, Angela! Food was good. Coconut Fried Shrimp appetizer was my favorite. The Crab Cakes were also... More

There were 10 in our party ranging from 80-19 and had several vegetarian diners. Everyone found a great meal and the service was very good.

We where seated immediately however the waitress didn't come by for about 10 mins, after she did come by and took out drink order it was another 10 mons before ordering apps. The spinach and artichoke was great and calamari was over breaded and under seasoned. We asked repeatedly for silverware and napkin so I just got up and grabbed... More

I had fish and chips, it was excellent. Went there on Thursday, they had a lobster special. My wife said it was great. They even put a plastic bib on her lol. Prices were reasonable. The decor was nice, around the bar they are using boat fishing chairs.

Thank electricfrank
