“Pleasant”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Location and ambience fit right in with the quiet side theme. Seating is either on the deck overlooking Bass Harbor or inside at comfortable tables. Service is friendly and accommodating. There is an ample wine list, local draft beer and a full bar. The menu consist of multiple seafood choices and ample selections for other appetites. The food presentation is simple but tasty.
This is a solid restaurant that you can bring your family and friends to.
Save room for dessert.

“What a great little find!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this place whilst wondering around Acadia. It's was a gorgeous sunny late afternoon and we sat outside on the patio area. What a view!! You can't beat it!

The food was good, the homemade bread was served warm and with melted butter it was great!

Service was lovely, warm and friendly. I would defiantly stop here for a bite to eat, it's not a five star restaurant but it fills your tummy and you can chill out on the patio and take in the wonderful views of Acadia/Maine.

“Ketching the Sunset”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

It was busy and somehow we scored a table on the deck. Beautiful view. Because it was so busy, it did take a loooooong time to get our drinks and food. However, the owner or manager kept checking on us and joking with us. She kept us in good spirits. We had scallops--the best fried scallops We have ever had!!! Little one had the crab sandwich and enjoyed it. Other little one had steak and ate it right down!!! Hubby had the cod and he said it was good. Our atmosphere, scenery, and food all complimented each other.

“Good food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Went to Seafood Ketch last night for dinner. We were seated immediately, and drink orders were taken as soon as we sat down. The waitress brought out freshly baked bread with our drinks that was absolutely delicious! We ordered the calamari for an appetizer, which was excellent. My sister ordered a cup of their clam chowder. Another great dining choice. Thick, flavorful broth and full of clams and potatoes. I ordered the fried shrimp with Ketch fries. My sister and her husband ordered the salmon special. My husband ordered the lobster. All of our food came out quickly and was hot and delicious. The outdoor seating at this place is comfortable, and the views outside were gorgeous. It was a little too chilly to stay outside, though. So we were seated inside. The inside of the restaurant looks a little shabby, but it's clean. The owner came over to ask us how our food and service was. She seemed interested in making sure our dining experience was a good one. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening and a good choice for dinner.

“Better options close by”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Nothing amazing here. Decor is circa 1991. Appetizers were good, but nothing in the main course particularly stood out. Not bad, but there are way too many better options within 10 minutes.
