great place for take out!!!
Chris Ursiny via - Aug 1, 2020
Second year in a row we ate here. Very happy with the food. Had to do take out this year but the time from order to pick up was reasonable. No additional or unreasonable costs for us. We’d definitely go back.

Delicious and Fresh
The seafood nachos are amazing! Shrimp and scallops fresh and delicious. Wonderful take out service.

Here in Hatteras this week with family out of Raleigh, decided kind of spur the moment to go out for some seafood and ended up at Ketch 55!! A lot of seafood places on the island, so glad we ended up there. The food was incredible, the service equally incredible! Only thing better was time with a family! Thank you Ketch55!!!

Fast, friendly service, with nice outdoor seating for dinner. Highly recommend the Asian Tuna and the Scottish Salmon entrees. Do not hesitate to check this place out!

Made reservations for a party of 12, got us in effortlessly. The crabs were steamed perfectly and had plenty of meat! I’m full, have a slight buzz and am pretty happy! Great beer menu, awesome seafood options and options for the kiddos along with great service! Thanks!

We went here two nights in a row. The first night they had made adjustments due to Covid regulations and were not seating people inside. We were unaware of this when we walked in, but the service was still amazing! We were able to wait for our food and chatted with the staff. Everyone was very friendly.

The next night we went

Amazing. I'm a meat eater. Ribeye, steaks, t-bones... etc. Seafood is not my first choice unless there's raw clams or raw oysters. When I go out to places especially near water where fresh seafood is available I like to give it a try. Went today with the family and ate at Ketch 55. Wife ordered the shrimp and grits and I was soo good ... read more

I had the shrimp grits tonight (take-out) and it was delicious! The shrimp were nicely cooked. The thinly sliced smoked andouille sausage gave some flavor to cream sauce. The grits were encapsulated in a 2 croquet-like lumps. There were maybe a few too many green...More ... read more

Delicious meal and friendly service. I like the green items such as the paper straws.

We first had the Ketch 55 signature shrimp and grits nearly 10 years ago, and it was life-changing! We've been talking about them ever since. Now, so many years later, we had them again tonight, and they are even better than we remembered! We also had the Asian tuna and the seafood nachos for an appetizer. Amazing!

We just had a spectacular experience at Ketch 55! We called ahead for a group of 8 last minute and they worked us in immediately.

If you’re looking for an exclusive dining experience in Avon, Ketch 55 is the place to be. Asian Tuna would be an excellent choice and the sweet pea risotto is extraordinary. It is quite a busy restaurant, they don’t take reservations but still better to call if you’re coming with a big party!

A very last minute decision that turned out to be excellent.
The menu has a great variety, from seafood dishes like fish and chips, to interesting dishes like fried goat cheese or sweet pea risotto. However, everything we got was fantastic. The place was also extremely clean, and had cute decor. Overall, it was a great experience

Definitely one of the outer bank's hidden treasures. GREAT breakfast sandwiches. Didn't try the donuts, but they looked delicious. Service coulda been a little more personable, but overall I'll absolutely be back.

Can’t Go Wrong
A terrific restaurant with great food & excellent service. Tuna sliders are a special treat to the taste buds! Soup of the day was a disappointment but everything else was tasty. We were in the area 5 days & ate here twice.

Love this place. Cute beach decor, not kitschy, but in a good way. Go on Thursday for half price wine and appetizers. We got the wings and tuna, so good. A little too much sauce on the tuna for me, so I'm not really a sauce person. The bartender was awesome and super nice. I will definitely be back next year.
