I never knew this place was here until trip advisor. I am so glad I tried this. Don't let the store front deter you. The food is fantastic as well as the service. Definitely recommend.

My family of four just had dinner at The Catch on Saturday Oct. 8, 2011. Please don't let the exterior building fool you, the food in this restaurant is fabulous! It takes alot to impress me, but this place did. The waiter was attentive, he knew his menu and every detail. The Chef - Keith Rhodes was awesome. He is a self taught chef and is appearing on season 9 of the TV show Top Chef, so please watch and support him. His meal presentation was detailed and beautiful. The food was delicious. Each one of us ordered something different to try and all four entrees were fabulous. OMG!!! We shared two different desserts and they were tasty. This is our NEW favorite restaurant in Wilmington, NC. It is not a very big place, it isn't fancy, but the employees and the food are well worth the trip.

Walk, don't run, to Catch for a most delicious meal and wonderful dining experience. The buffalo clam appetizer was inspired, the blackened amberjack cooked to perfection, and the dessert divine. Thank you for a wonderful meal. When in Wilmington, do as the Wilmingtonians do -- go to Catch. This Atlantan will return as often as possible.

We very much enjoyed our first visit to Catch. Delicious sweet potato salad, crab cakes, and flounder. Unlike others, I thought the size of the servings was appropriate Wait staff was friendly and professional and Catch has a nice wine list. The one thing that prevented a perfect score: desert list was recited, not printed out. Very surprised that chocolate ice cream was $10, even if homemade. We look forward to returning soon.

Catch (both downtown & on Market St) is our favorite place to eat in Wilmington. The crabcake on top of the salad (w/ sweet potatoes filling in for crutons!) is fantastic. My husband got the drunken lobster and loved it. Their empahsis on local and organic ingredients makes the restaurant even more outstanding.
