great atmosphere--restaurant nicely decorated and seating was outstanding giving almost everyone a beautiful view of the Ocean. Our waitress had a very pleasant personality and was very attentive. We were there on March 8th just before returning to our home in Columbus, Ohio. We did not have reservations but the Host got everyone to hustle and get us seated in... More

We have been coming here for several years and each time we come, the food seems to worsen. The wait staff is attentive, but frankly we come here for the food. The Mahi Mahi was overcooked. The Salmon was tasteless. So sad to see a once great, on the beach restaurant, go downhill.

Went to Fresh Catch Bistro for the first time & everything was perfect! Jerry was so very helpful to set up a table for two so we could sit outside & enjoy the view. Our waiter Tyler was so helpful & attentive. We will be sure to go many more times. Food was wonderful & presentation was perfect.

Would recommend a table on the patio over looking the beach and the beautiful sunset. Inside seemed noisier. Food was awesome as was the presentation.

The food and the service was outstanding! The server, Robin, and manager Jerry, knew just when appropriate to check in for additional questions, needs, etc. And how special was it having our 'free' anniversary dessert arrive with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate across the top of the plate. Very nice touch! And the food was Excellent. Highly recommend the pecan... More

Came here for dinner with my husband St Patty's week based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Sat inside with a nice view of the beach. The view is gorgeous. Started out with shrimp cocktail which were nice sized shrimp. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the grouper. Both were cooked perfectly, moist and delicious.... More

We dined at about 8 p.m. The ocean front view was beautiful. The food was average and high priced. Service was ok.

We arrived for our 7:15 reservation to be told them didn't have it--never the best feeling. We had reserved outdoor dining and they offered us a table inside. We said we had booked outside. Without too much of a wait they shuffled things around and had us at an outdoor table. We had great service! Overall it was a good... More

We decided to dine here after it was recommended by a local. The food was amazing, especially the crab legs. The staff, however, was incredibly rude. We were a group of 8 women. Upon entering, the host/maître d', Jerry Nolan, immediately gave us an attitude and made us feel very unwelcome...so much so that had it not been a busy... More

We came without a reservation on 3/17/16 and were lucky to get seated at the bar for dinner. The glass of super Tuscan wine was outstanding. The bartender was helpful in recommending it to us.
