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

This restaurant is conveniently located and it was a good stopping point for us to have some lunch. We didn't want anything took heavy and opted for a lobster roll. 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.

Large restaurant which has both indoor and outdoor seating. We had dinner indoors which on a Friday evening was surprisingly empty. Wait staff very helpful with more detailed descriptions of dishes. I tried the Lobster Alfredo (very very rich) which was very good and had a lot of lobster meat. I also had the Lobster Bisque which was excellent and... More

It was late and my husband was starving. We walked up and down Main Street trying to find a place that would still serve us dinner. This was the only one we could find! We walked in and it smelled very strange so I was worried. I was thinking of leaving because of the odor. My husband is an miserable... More

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.
