We were shopping and decided to take a break for lunch. This is a very welcoming place with quiet and tasteful ambience. Shrimp cocktail, tuna tartare, and cioppino for two. A nice white wine. Food was excellent. Service was likewise very professional. They have a happy hour which we plan to try. We are local and plan to return.

Have eaten here twice this week, with out a doubt the best in town. Chef Steven is spot on and the lobster risotto is outstanding. Be sure to ask for Morad, he is one of the best waiters in town.

Actually my son ordered the halibut, but after giving me a taste, I wish I chose that! I had Lobster Mac and Cheese, it was good but liked halibut more. Others enjoyed their seafood choices, Ahi Tuna and Variety Plate. If female is using ladies restroom, watch out for mirrors! I walked into one and that was before my wine!... More

The Sea Catch is a hidden gem off a courtyard in Georgetown, with tables along the canal, a perfect secluded spot for some peaceful people watching. Good seafood, nice bread, courteous service.

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel when we inquired about fresh seafood in the area. The scallops were so fresh and succulent... Cooked perfectly and seasoned properly. I eat scallops often, but now have new standards after experiences how scallops can be expertly prepared. The service was amazing as well.

They have a great happy hour special for oysters and beer/wine. We had a mix of both happy hour and regular priced oysters, and they were both very good.

My husband & I came for dinner. The decor is odd - wood beams & brick against cold mirrored doors. We were treated well enough, nothing special. The menu is limited. The food was ok, nothing more. Certainly not worth the prices. Do not recommend.
