Thanksgiving break
Went last night. Only waited 20 minutes on a crowded night. The clam chowder was very good with lots of clams. The tuna with ginger and sauce was the best. Cooked to perfection. The fried shrimp and oysters were also very good. The service was...More ... read more

A terrific restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. What makes you this really shine is dinner. Great selection of appetizers, entrees and deserts. Friendly staff and very good service. The food is very well prepared. Out of the eight of us, every single meal was perfect. No worries here for a great meal.

Best seafood dinner in Avon or Buxton
Have been coming to Avon for over 15 years, eating out most evenings. Ketch55 (formerly MackDaddys years ago), still provides the best seafood dining experience in the Avon area and beyond. The food quality, presentation and service/interior are polished but still relaxed. The crabcake is...More ... read more

Great place for drinks and a good meal
We enjoyed drinks on the patio and had a great dinner in the restaurant. It wasn't packed so only a 30 minute wait compared to the 1-2 hour experience we are used to in the OBX. Food was solid and wait staff was excellent.

We had a great meal at Kerch 55. Our favorite items ordered were the seafood nachos and the shrimp and grits. Cornbread was also delicious. The collards were a little plain but still good. Server was friendly and spent a little time talking with our group outside of his "normal" server duties.

I have been in Avon for 10 days and this is the only place my family has visited twice.  The service is top notch.  The food is local and fresh.  Both nights we went here we sat at tables next to local sea captains, they don't eat just anywhere.

An all around great experience. The atmosphere was laid back, the service was great, and the food was fresh and well prepared. We had seven people in our party and each raved about the meal and service they were given. We will definitely be going back. Not only for dinners, but just to hang out with some drinks. Great place.
