I've been coming to Haterras for over twenty years and your seafood lasagna is without a doubt the best dish I have ever had on the island.

We have visited several restaurants here in Avon and by far Ketch 55 is definitely our favorite! The staff is super friendly and the food is amazing. We have had breakfast, fresh in house made donuts, and dinner! It has all been top notch!!!!

This place is really good. I had the shrimp and grits which were absolutely amazing. My wife had the crab cakes which were also really good. But back to the shrimp and grits... I haven't stopped thinking about them and it's been three days. The sauce that the shrimp and grits are in is what I would term as "succulent."  Will definite ... read more

This review is solely for Stu's Donuts!!!  My husband ran out for coffee and donuts this morning and as he pulled into one location a huge crowd entered the store.  He left and saw the sign for Stu's Donuts and decided to give them a try.  Wish we had done so earlier in our stay!  These things rock!  There are no donuts on shelves, t ... 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!!!

Greeted warmly the second you walk through the door. We had breakfast, the food was delicious and the Bloody Mary was the best I've had. My niece raved about her donut, still warm and very chocolatey! My family went back for more donuts and I'm now obsessed with the key-lime pie flavored one. Go to Ketch 55 Seafood Grill, YOU WILL NO ... read more

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.

Great service from the minute you walk in the door. We had a party of 13 so we called ahead. Food and presentation excellent. Desserts are made on site and fabulous. Keylime Pie was excellent. A little on the pricey side but well worth it.

This place was a second option as our first option was closed for Memorial Day. Needless to say, our expectations were greatly exceeded and glad the other place was closed.

We ate at many places while in Avon and this was top two in terms of our favorites. The service was wonderful and the menu was varied. The crab cakes were exceptional as was the steak-fried chicken. The grilled mahi mahi was delicious, as well. I would return to Ketch 55 in a heartbeat.

Food here was pretty good.  Nice atmosphere and good service.  I had the shrimp tacos, which unfortunately required assembly. But other than that they we're tasty. Desserts were also good.  They also had trivial pusuit cards at the table, which was a fun way to entertain ourselves while waiting for our food!

First time visit just after Labor Day on a week night. Hospitality was fantastic. I could really get a sense of a community feeling around the bar.

This is excellent locally caught fish at very reasonable prices. I come back every year. You can't make it on this island if you're not doing it right and this plave has been serving top shelf food and drinks for at least 10 years.

This is a real gem on the OBX in Avon, NC. Martin was our server and he was excellent. I had "Crispy Oven Baked Crab Cakes" and Pam (my wife) had the "NC Coleman Farms Chicken". My crab cakes were full of crab meat, full of flavor and crispy as advertised. The veggies were a bit overcooked but still tasted great. Pam's chicken was mo ... read more

We decided to go here because it didn't seem busy, and with two kids we prefer less crowded places. The food is a bit pricey and the menu isn't very big, which is why I'm guessing it wasn't super busy. I got the fish tacos, which were pretty good. I'm not sure the food is worth the price, though the service was great and so were the ... read more
