Last year we stopped in for lunch and we were very pleasantly surprised. Because the chowder and fried clams were so good last year we decided to try Seafood Ketch for dinner this year. It lived up to expectations. The clam chowder (an important indicator...More

Lot of potential here but needs some guidance. Patrons who arrived after me had menus and drinks before anyone spoke to me. That happens. The food was truly unimpressive. Seafood chowder was not fresh, there was a film on top. The "special saucy chicken sandwich"...More

Hubby and i went in for dinner. I had a delicious lobster carbonara, and he had seafood platter. We both had more food than we could eat. My only complaint is the carbonara did not have bacon in it.

I really enjoyed the fresh bread they bring to the table with the meals. It is VERY fresh! For my meal I had the seafood Alfredo and I highly recommend it. It was creamy, full of flavor, and full of seafood. Good portions and I...More
