Across street from Cape Cod Inn. Seafood was delicious. Wait staff was also the bartender and was very attentive to us even tough she had to run over to our table. A little pricey but food was worth it. Would certainly stop in again.

Very disappointing. First off, the odor was terrible. The food was marginal at best - we expected much more at the cape. Service was OK.

Service good, server very nice and efficient. Lobster roll was very good, but for the amount paid, there could have been a side with more substance like cole slaw or something, not french fries, which were not very good. BLT good!

Place was very busy. Sat outside on patio. Great night. Great service from great servers. Food was fairly quick and very fresh. Had a variety of different food including fresh fish. Excellent. Highly recommended. Prices were appropriate for what we had.

Had lunch here when we took the Fall on Cape Cod: Day Trip from Boston with a Sightseeing Cruise. The rubens and TBC sandwiches were excellent, fast service and great value.

It was unfortunate timing for us, as the restaurant was overwhelmed by a huge busload of diners. Therefore, greeting and seating was slow, and so was the service. But they were trying hard. The staff was hustling to serve everyone. Got to give them credit...More

The food is delicious, a good diner style menu to choose from worth plenty of fresh seafood on offer. My burger was very tasty and my wife's stuffed shrimp was excellent. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

No, we will not be open on Christmas Day. We closed for the season in October and reopen in spring 2017. At that time, we'll be serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Hope you'll come see us then! Happy holidays.

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.
