We ordered the coconut shrimp and fried zucchini--both were excellent. My turkey club could use some cheese and mayo, but was still good and the delicious, crispy fries hit the spot. Sunny day, cold beer, tasty food, & a view of the marina--a grandslam! Jessica...More

Waitress was SO rude, food took almost two hours to come out and it looked like a school cafeteria put it out. I get that you're in Tahoe and it's going to be expensive and it's near the marina. I lived in Tahoe for 10...More

We attended for restaurant week for dinner to try the scallops. All I can say is outstanding. We sat at a large bar and listened to a local group performing. Service was excellent. It looks like many locals enjoy this place as well.

Great location, good finger food, fabulous service. The right place for a relaxed Sunday afternoon with friends.

The food wasn't worth the price, $19.00 hamburgers, $8.00 for a CUP of soup and very slow service. This will be our last time at this restaurant. It's not the Ketch it used to be. The only thing going is the view of marina.

We went to Fresh Ketch based on online reviews. We were very disappointed. The food was average at best and not prepared as requested. My wife ordered Shrimp scampi in the mild version. What she was served was extremely spicy hot with red pepper. My...More

In my experience, it’s rare for a restaurant to achieve the trifecta of atrocious service, poor ambience, and awful food: Fresh Ketch succeeds handily at all three. We entered the restaurant and encountered a bar full of patrons waiting to be sat, inexplicably, since the...More
