Located right in the middle of Main St Hyannis, this is a good place for a moderate portion of fish and chips at a moderate price. I don't know about you but I would rather get a smaller portion at a smaller price the a giant portion at a giant price. Who eats leftover fried fish! Plus, it is pretty... More

It has a great selection for little kids to eat and drink. For every kids meal it comes with a free frisbee. You can eat at a bar, a booth, a table or outside.

We visited the Fresh Ketch this summer on a busy weekend night and it was great. The staff was friendly and accommodating to my family, including my toddler (which I will say aren't the best dinner guests). Our daughter loved the fish tanks on the inside and it was a great way to distract her during ordering. Our food came... More

The bread was soft and there was plenty of lobster and we each had a soft drink. We noticed how clean the place was and considering there are multiple places... More

Stopped by here for lunch before heading home. Bith the crabcakes and the Lobster bisque were terrific! The entrees were delicious, but nothing off the charts. Waitstaff was attentive, decor pleasant. Would stop by again.

Great main street restaurant in Hyannis. The Chowder is exceptional, and the menu is varied with both fish and meat items. Great for couples and also for families.

At Fresh Ketch, located on Cape Cod in downtown Hyannis, you will find a high-quality dining experience in a comfortable, light and nautical atmosphere. We are a seasonal restaurant, open daily from April-October. The menu specializes in American cuisine, using as many local and housemade ingredients as possible. We offer a variety of options for the seafood lover, including lobster, seafood stew, crab cakes, a raw bar, and award winning clam chowder. The menu also features soups and salads, as well as many steak, pasta and chicken dishes. Fresh Ketch is a family-friendly restaurant, with a full kids' menu, and every kids' meal is served on a Frisbee. Our unique aquariums are "reef tanks" that recreate a coral reef ecosystem, provide constant entertainment for children. With 4 dining rooms, there is always room for any size group without prior reservations and we can host functions for up to 200 people. There is also a full bar and lounge where we host karaoke Friday and Saturday nights and live entertainment on Thursdays and Sundays. Our two patios provide a great outdoor dining experience for all of those beautiful Cape Cod days. And our on-site parking always makes a visit to Fresh Ketch on Main Street easy and convenient.
