Very good wine/beer list and Liver & Onions!
We've been here in prior years because, among other features, they have the best wine and beer list in Avon. New on the menu this year was liver and onions prepared in the classical way, a dish that's very hard to find on restaurant menus...More ... read more

Excellent meal, excellent service
We went mid-week the week of October 16. The food was excellent. There was standard seafood options, along with some twists on standard seafood. We ordered the baked fish, which came over pasta with mussels and clams in a white wine sauce with artichokes, sundried...More ... read more

Great for Breakfast
Can't speak to lunch or dinner since we only had 2 breakfasts there. It was very fresh and fast. Would definitely go back. Be aware though, that coffee is strong! Good, but strong.

Shrimp and grits are always a favorite! The special with fresh wahoo melted in your mouth. This month they have Ta Ta Martini fund raiser for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, thank you for your community support. Definitely Recommend!

I ate here for breakfast on my short trip to Hatteras. The food was good. The service was fast and pleasant. I had a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit with a side of homefries. I ate half my meal before I thought to take a picture. The biscuit was soft, buttery and tasty. The sausage was the star in the biscuit. It was seasoned and coo ... read more

Breakfast was really good
We enjoyed the donuts and blt sandwiches. We spent two mornings there and it was really pleasant service. Owner came out and checked on us. Donuts are made fresh. Waitress hustle to make sure all guests were happy.

Good
Had dinner there this evening. I had the boiled scallops and shrimp with side Caesar. It was delicious. Service was a little slow. I don't think they had enough servers for the volume. The server was very friendly.

It's a hard decision ... Excellent service, but does that outweigh their excellent food?! A win-win in both categories.

This place! My experience was wonderful. I cook for a living and I appreciate REAL home cooked food. These people have the knack for it. They have the real deal.

My husband and I ate at Ketch 55 while staying in Buxton. We both had a delicious crab cake dinner with red pepper roasted mashed potatoes. The atmosphere was quietly upscale as was the food presentation. We could not have had better service and highly recommend. Smaller and less touristy than many of the others.

So happy we found this place! It can be hard to travel with celiac, but they had plenty of well marked options and an extremely knowledgeable server. Amazing calamari, shrimp and grits and shrimp tacos and great service!

Went with another couple while on vacation. Great service, good food, great beer selection. Little improvements to parking scene and table setup could make it a 5. Service, as stated above, was great.

We've been coming down here for vacation for over 20 years and came here when it was another restaurant. Blown away by the taste, presentation and quality of the food. Wanted my Tuna gently warmed and my wife's fresh catch pasta was also enjoyed. This will now become a regular in the annual rotation. Did I mention the beer selection.

I gave it 4 stars for one reason and that reason was it took a long time to get our food. I assume though this might have been because we were a party of 14. Now that aside the food was prepared prefectly. The steak was cooked to perfection and the seafood was great. So if you are in town and looking for something delicious, stop ... read more

From our phenomenal server Chad, and the ever-sweet "boss lady" Jomi, to the world famous shrimp n grits, (Ketch's shrimp n grits are the standard by which all others are measured) our meal as always was perfect in every way! Can't wait to get back to the States next month, and come right back to the island and eat at Ketch 55!!!

Awesome food, even more awesome service.  We had the calamari, the filet (omg, the spinach salad and mashed potatoes were great too), and the passionfruit salad with shrimp (my bf said the shrimp were too small for the price).  Was very pleasantly surprised by this new addition to the restaurant scene here on the Outer Banks.
