While visiting Hampton Beach we stopped for lunch at the Sea Ketch on Ocean Boulavard...there was a partially enclosed dining area, which was on the second floor with a wonderful view overlooking the beach. My fiancée had a hamburger and I the tuna wrap and...we shared...both very good as were the onion rings. Later that evening we stopped back as the first floor is an ice cream shop with tables outside. All in all a nice place for lunch and ice cream.More

We're two older couples who like getting together for lunch, preferably on the seacoast. In these COVID-19 days outdoor dining is a must for us and Sea Ketch delivers well in this regard. Three outdoor decks provide ample seating. Food choices are plentiful, and our...party enjoyed a range of items - onion rings, fried clams, lobster rolls - the usual seacoast offerings. Tables are socially distanced, staff wore masks. Only one minor issue - I had to ask server 3 times to get salt for my fried food, but she was busy with many tables, so somewhat understandable.More

We sat on one of the decks that overlook Hampton Beach. Beautiful! There was a talented musician that entertained with a wide variety of songs. The fish & chips special was terrific; the best my partner has ever had. (And, we live near the coast!)...The staff was friendly and hard-working. We will definitely go back the next time we're in town.More

We had lunch at the Sea Ketch during our short stay in Hampton Beach. Both the hostess who seated us and our server Chris were very pleasant and professional. Our lunches were plentiful, delicious and very reasonably priced. The upper deck provides a fantastic view...of the ocean. I would not hesitate to eat here again when I’m back in the area.More

The wait time wasn't great but then again it was labor day weekend so understandable. The waitress was ok but the food was good. Not sure if it was because it was the first time having it but the lobster Rangoon was phenomenal. Steak was...meh and wasn't a fan of the way they serve the ahi tuna dish (needs wasabi)More

Terrible experience my family went to the famous Sea Ketch.....we arrived and were told there was a wait I asked how long and the hostess said no I have a table go up stairs tell them to put you at 603. Ok we do this...and we are seated and while we waited for the waitress to come another young lady came over and questioned us we told her that we told to sit there...she proceeded to tell us we needed to go back down stairs and start over...being an elderly person I new I could not go back up the stairs again they embarrassed us.....we left went next store were seated with no wait had the best waiter and best meal ever......all with no embarrassment. They will never get a penny from me or my family and good friends....to bad Sea Ketch you have lost out for embarrassing me.More

The place has a great view but the food is just meh. Lobster salad was tasty but they ruin it by putting it on a cheap stale hotdog bun. Where is the nice buttery grilled bun that should accompany an authentic lobster roll? My fried...scallops were over cooked and tough. It is also a bit odd they have different menus on each floor. You should be able to order a burger anywhere. Walking a few stairs is apparently too difficultMore

I've been to Hampton Beach for vacation three summers in a row - and I've tried (almost) every restaurant on the strip for a nice dinner. Sea Ketch wins by far! The strip on Hampton Beach does *not* have fine dining options - but I...still like to try and go out for a nice dinner while I'm on vacation. None of the restaurants are super **nice**, but of the options available the best I have found is the Sea Ketch. You are still going to be sitting in plastic chairs - but if you go up to the second floor you can sit outside and still get the full dinner menu with a beautiful view. I had the haddock topped with lobster claws and it was amazing. Our waitress was friendly and they had great drink options (beer, hard seltzer, daquiri). They also had great clam chowder and yummy clams. FYI - if you go up any higher than this floor - your menu becomes limited (aka deck menu).More

I did not see gluten free options listed on the menu. I would call ahead and ask.
