Catch on Market Street

Angry Lobster! (yep, that's what it's called)

Oh hallelujah and finally, yes, I ate at Catch on Market Street, a pilgrimage I’ve been wanting to make for a loooong time. Oh boy, was it ever good. 

If you live in Wilmington and eat out regularly, you’ve either been here already, heard about how awesome it is, and/or plan to go soon.

I went with 3 other people, we ordered 4 dishes plus an app, and shared everything.  Not surprisingly, everything was amazingly good. I’m weak on superlatives at the moment, but trust me on this one, you will want to go here, if you haven’t already.

We didn’t have reservations, but we were accommodated in the bar area, which we all liked immensely.

We started with Ribs-n-Fries for appetizer, then ordered Blackened Amberjack, Shrimp and Grits, Angry Lobster, and some sort of Flounder dish, whose menu name I can’t recall at the moment, for our entrees.

And then the sharing of dishes commenced.  Once we tucked in, all four of us were giddy with delight at how damn good everything was, save for the 12-year old among us, who possibly didn’t share quite the same enthusiasm as the adults for each and every bite. (But he’s being raised by a foodie, so he’s coming right along.)

A nice touch – Chef Keith Rhodes came out and said hello, asked how everything was and chatted for a few minutes, and when his wife spied us trying to take a pic of ourselves, she kindly stepped in and took it for us. Nice people.

I highly recommend Catch on Market, and I for one will be going back as soon as I can swing it.
