The food is amazing and definitely a treat for for diners. The oyster appetizer with egg and pimento cheese was incredible. My whole lobster was perfect with a spicy treatment. My wife had a combination entree with ribs and fried shrimp with both being delicious and a great combination. Others have articulated the unassuming exterior and atmosphere lacking interior. If...

I have been attempting to make healthier eating choices and had read somewhere that "Catch" was the place to go for fresh seafood. It's a bit of trick finding the place. It's in a little strip mall with outdoor furniture sold right next door. There isn't much of a sign; however, there is a sign on the outside that says... More

Just had the best dinner I've ever had in Wilmington! Been here 22 years and was convinced that culinary greatness was to be found elsewhere. Tried the blackened swordfish. It was tender and moist and rivaled anything I've had in NY, LA or Seattle. Breece, our waiter was polite and attentive throughout.

An odd spot for a wonderful gem of a restaurant. Small, quaint restaurant with a more spacious bar area with loads of energy! The food here is labor-intensive, thoughtful and fresh. Fish, scallops, lamb, duck - the duck salad was superb! The wait staff is attentive, but low-key, to allow for fine dining experience in a true southern pace! Don't... More

These people know how to do seafood right, for that matter everything is incredible. Great atmosphere and the best seafood I have ever had. The owners are incredibly nice and greeted us and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. The seafood whether it be blackened, fried or grill was cooked to perfection. If you go to one seafood restaurant... More

The food is very fresh and tasty -- and pricey! We all enjoyed our dishes, but did find food on the heavy side. I would love it there were some lighter fish preparations on the menu -- maybe a few less ingredients, more focus on the sauce. Service was very good.
