On our way from Michigan to North Carolina for our anniversary we decided to stay in Lexington for the night and after checking out a lot of restaurant options in the area we chose Ketch and are happy we did!

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

Absolutely wonderful! There were four of us on a Sunday afternoon, Father's Day, and between us we had the crab cakes, garden salad, fried banana peppers, grilled oysters, bucket of crab legs, white fish, clams, fried shrimp, BBQ ribs. It was all delicious! I wish I could remember our server's name because she was awesome! We cannot wait to go... More
