I was here 7 years ago when it was called Mac Daddy’s & had the best meal I think I’ve ever had: shrimp and grits. Fast forward to this trip & we couldn’t find the place, but by luck we came to Ketch 55 and it’s the place! The shrimp and grits were even more delicious than I remembered! The staff were also very friendly & made fo ... read more

Very accommodating to our group. We sat outside because of having our golden retriever with us(ordered  as 'to-go' because they were not serving food on the deck. Food was very good. Shrimp and grits-delicious. Kids meals were good sized portions.  Only negative was the mosquitos at dusk. Wear your bug spray.

Delicious crab legs! Everyone enjoyed their meals. My husband is still talking about the Wasabi Mashed Potatoes. (I'm still thinking about the crab legs) Great service from Chase. Perfect way to kick off our vacation!

Unfortunately it seemed that every establishment in the Outer Banks was looking for help. This restaurant was no exception. That being said, our waiter who formerly worked in another restaurant in Buxton, worked like a man possessed! The owner also worked like mad! The food...More ... read more

We ate here on our first night in Avon. The place is very clean and the service staff were very kind and provided us exceptional service. I had the fried blue fish and shrimp.

Enjoyed crab legs here on our trip. The server was so polite and we arrived early and didn't have any wait!!

This place is definitely a gem. Service is to be desired but it is also extremely busy. I ordered the seafood plate which comes with scallops, fish, oysters and shrimp (broiled or fried), was very tasty!! They serve cornbread which is also very scrumptious, they even had soft butter! Tried the clams and mussels as well for an appetiz ... read more

I really like this place. I've been at least five times. Seafood is always very good. Anything involving house smoked fish will blow your mind. I tried Stu's donuts too. The best I've ever had.

Excellent food, excellent service. Ate here twice during our week-long vacation. Call ahead seating is a bonus! Never had to wait with a party of 6. Will be back next year!

Really great donuts! Staff is very friendly. We stopped in right as they opened (7 am) on a Sunday. We order and within 10 minutes they had a dozen freshly made Donuts in our eagerly awaiting hands. Cannot recommend this spot enough.

I ate both breakfast at Stu's and dinner at ketch 55. I couldn't have asked for a better experience from both. Great, speedy customer service. The food priced appropriately and tasted amazing!

Admittedly we stopped here as a second choice, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent across the board, and the service and atmosphere was very cozy. Definitely one of the better restaurants in Avon.

Went in for breakfast while in town visiting a friend. Was not disappointed! My husband and I shared a sausage egg and cheese biscuit, and donuts. Everything tasted amazing. The donuts were so light and cakey, and the toppings were fun and made them even more delicious. We will definitely be eating here again!

Great Seafood!
Great place for some local seafood. The staff was very friendly. The only bad thing is that the tables surround a bar and it was hard to talk to each other for the noise. It seems like a local favorite.
