We eat here probably once a month. The seafood is excellent. The baked oysters on the appetizer menu is delicious and goes well with the Pelican's Platter! (Clams, Shrimp, Fish, and Crab Cake)! Don't forget the Hush Puppies!!

They have very good oysters. We ordered three different kinds and all of them were very good. Their crab bucket was also very good. We have found a new restaurant to go to on a regular basis.

The Ketch is a bar/ dive in Southland that has good to great seafood. The oysters Rockefeller were unique and extremely good. I would put them in my top five and I spent three years in law school in New Orleans. We didn't have a bad dish and we had several I would recommend anywhere. The music is old time... More

My family and I were greeted by a decrepit and cluttered atmosphere when we walked in the door. I ordered the Bayou Sampler and soon discovered that all items were bland and unappetizing. The cole slaw was limp and flavorless, the lukewarm seafood gumbo should not be called gumbo at all, and the cajun grilled skewered shrimp was cold upon... More

Good choices of seafood and service. Hush puppies with honey butter really good. Place is kind of hidden treasure and do recommend for families. Menu do offer combo choice. It's little over priced but do get some value.

We have looked forward to The Ketch for months and finally picked a day to go…today. Mike spent some time on their Facebook page being lured in by the beautiful food photography. It’s a cute little place with a Key West flavor. Rustic, nice outdoor patio, cute little nooks and crannies inside. We were greeted by Robert, who showed us... More
