The Daily Catch
True to it's name, you will find fresh seafood dishes at Daily Catch in the North End . Dishes often pair a heavy garlic, butter and cream sauce with trout, salmon, shrimp and scallops. Spicy lobster fra diavolo is the reigning menu champ, drawing many tourists and locals. The calamari dishes are some of the best in Boston. Besides the restaurant serves beer and wine.
This restaurant is found the US Airways magazine as one of the worlds best seafood restaurants. If your looking for good atmoshphere and great seafood its worth the wait. The whole place is encompassed in one room which includes the kitchen, dishwashing area and about six tables for seating. The lobster fra diavalo is delicious. It was decribed as a portion for only two, but four of us weren't able to finish it. When I go back to Boston, I'll definitly be stopping in again.
Atrocious! The food was awful. If you want to spend a lot of money on mediocre food with terrible service, then this is the place for you. I would have had a much better time at Long John Silver's, Red Lobster, or Legal Seafood. I will never go back there.
We went to the Daily Catch based on glowing reviews and were SADLY DISAPPOINTED. The Squid Scampi is ok but the squid seems not so fresh. The mussels in marinara sauce over pasta was the worst that we've ever had at any restaurant. The mussels were small, overly cooked and tasteless - probably previously frozen. Their marinara sauce is so bland. Even a jar of Ragu was superior! The wine was also questionable. $8 in a paper cup! What a rip-off!
When the waitress asked us about our food and we told her that it was mediocre, she got all offended. Why ask when she cannot take honest feedback?
We will not go back to the Daily Catch after this terrible experience. What a waste of money!
I went to Daily Catch last weekend to entertain friends from out of town, and I think it was a bad decision to go to Daily Catch. From outside, it would seem like a local and down to earth eatery, but they were charging $21 for a shrimp pasta that tasted so so and was served on a cooking pot. The environment is too greasey and hot, with no bathroom and crowded tables. I would rather spend my money on some chain restaurant like Legal Seafood or Bertucci for greater pasta. Not going back!!!
Was turned on to The Daily Catch quite a few years ago and it still remains my all time favorite restaurant. I have also turned many of my friends on to it and it is worth the trip into Boston. The food is tremendous . . . from the fried calamari and black pasta alfredo (the best I've EVER had) appetizers to the Monk Fish Marsala and Seafood Fra Diavolo, you just can't go wrong! If you're looking to go out for great food, go here. If you're looking to go somewhere for the ambiance, this is not the place for you. I think the restaurant seats about 20 patrons total, so there is a good chance you'll be sitting alongside someone you do not know. Personally, I think that makes for an interesting and exciting experience, but for some I guess it could be uncomfortable. Always a line outside, so you may have to wait a bit but well worth the wait. To avoid a wait, go at lunch. Can't say enough about The Daily Catch!
