The grouper was excellent as were the crab cakes. The heirloom tomato salad was also very tasty. All was very yummy!!! Service was above and beyond. Our server, Jen, was very attentive (tho not overbearing!) and other folks stopped by to fill up water, take away plates and made us all feel extremely welcome and satisfied! A little pricey but...

Found this place here on trip advisor. Well recommended. Slightly expensive but well worth if you are looking foot tasteful unique food. Their wine selection is great as well as the creative from the bartender, spoke with him for a few minutes after eating about his style.

This is a great seafood restaurant - the best in Wilmington. The grilled oysters, appetiser was excellent. I had one of the only two remaining Maine lobster. It was slightly tough, leading me to believe that it was slightly underdone. My wife's steak was superb but at 14oz way too much for her. She could have had a smaller portion... More

My wife and I went for our anniversary celebration, and came away extremely delighted. After a mildly disappointing Hibachi salad (a bit under dressed), our entrees were absolutely delectable. My wife had a tempura lobster dish over crab rice in a Ponzu that was perfectly cooked and seasoned. She said she could have it everyday and be happy. I had... More

We have lived in Surf City for 2 years and finally made it to Catch for our Anniversary Dinner. Do not be fooled by its location, the interior is cozy and nice. The staff was attentive and nice and I was impressed that the waiter memorized all of the specials. The bread is so delicious and we started with the... More

Catch is a restaurant that we often take visiting friends to dinner. We include our 17 and 21 yo sons and they love the food. Very open space with great service. The food is beyond compare in the Wilmington area despite a rather remote location. I highly recommend a visit to Catch.

Came to Catch for the first time. We were dining early and were overwhelmed by the three menus we were presented with. Tuesday is tapas day so that was one of the menus. We decided to try the fixed priced ($35 for three courses) option and were well rewarded. She crab soup was delicious but needed a splash of sherry.... More

Not the cheapest place in town and a less casual restaurant than most in area. They have lots of sushi and meals that are very pretty and make it special. Beautiful decor. Dont be afraid to ask for a item off menu or done a special way. Very nice place for a special meal with some one you love.

Traveled to check this place out based on reputation for great seafood. Did not disappoint: creative, delicious, well constructed dishes and flavors, super friendly staff and live the microgreens at the bar. Changes the whole feel of the place - instant warmth and life. Need to come with more people to try more things!
