This is a very casual, waterfront restaurant that is known locally for its seafood. We had lunch on the deck. I had the blackened scallops that were very tasty, accompanied by 1/2 ear of corn on cob, and new potatoes. They also had a delicious key lime pie.Well worth a visit.

We are regulars to the Avery Crouse beach at the foot of Newfound Lake where this restaurant is located. Most of their food is fried and the quality of the food is just average. It is in a nice location being at the foot of the lake, so it is a nice spot to grab a bite and have a drink, but overall the food is your average fried food fare, nothing special.

i used to dine here and thought it was great untill i got a job here. i worked in the kitchen it was hot unorganized and dirty. They use frozen fries frozen pakaged low grade squid clams and haddock. The wait is rediculous and the servers are mostly teens who are just learning, Very hot and crowded!

We've never had a bad meal at Big Catch. Very casual (people come in from the beach), you just grab a table - we like the tables on the deck, but inside is fine, especially if you have a big crowd. Nice place to sit at sunset. Wait staff is very friendly. The ice cream is excellent. Love the Jamaican salad, good burgers, fried clams are excellent, our daughter loves the tuna and fries, and the fried haddock is one of my favorites. There's also a bar where you can catch the Red Sox score while sipping your margarita.
