Good place for family I think - we went as a couple and weren't overly impressed. It was ok - ok food, lacklustre service, pricing average. With a name like "Fresh Ketch" we were hoping for some fab seafood - just the normal fish and...More

One look at the menu was enough to draw us into the restaurant, plenty of fish dishes but other alternatives on offer. I had the stuffed shrimp but was tempted by many others. I thought very reasonable prices.

The seafood was average and I didn’t think the lobster was fresh. The service was too slow and not at all attentive- server didn’t seem too bothered or was too busy.

No, we will not be open on Christmas Day. We closed for the season in October and reopen in spring 2017. At that time, we'll be serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Hope you'll come see us then! Happy holidays.
