The Catch serves up upscale, casual dining in Anaheim, CA

In 1979, The Catch opened as a local fish house restaurant right across the street from Anaheim Stadium (now Angels’ Stadium) on State College Boulevard. We had tried it in the early-1990s and it was just mediocre at best. In 2001, Joe Manzella (owner of TAPS in Brea) took over the reins at The Catch, making the menu more upscale yet still casual. Still avid Entertainment Book subscribers, we decided to try it again. We were surprised by how much Joe had revived the menu and how good the food had become. In 2010, The Catch moved to its new location on Katella Avenue in the new AvalonBay Luxury Residential Building, which is retail on the bottom floor and residential units above. The Catch has a wonderful location on the corner with a very short walk to The Grove or a short walk to Angels Stadium or the Honda Center – right at the epicenter of sports and entertainment for Anaheim.

Blackened Mahi-Mahi Tacos

Tacos by the Rack – choose one style (slow cooked pork carnitas or blackened mahi-mahi), 4 tacos to an order. The Blackened Mahi-Mahi is lightly breaded chunks of mahi-mahi, warm corn tortillas, shredded cabbage, guacamole, and chipotle sour cream. The guacamole has a jalapeno kick to wake you up. Don’t worry, it’s a good burn. The fish was a little dry, perhaps if it was cooked a little less, it would lock in the juices. Otherwise, it had a really good flavor. Thumbs up!

Pork Carnitas Stuffed Potato Skins

Pork Carnitas Stuffed Potato Skins topped salsa quemada, queso pinella, green chiles, shaved onion, cilantro, and lime juice. They were the biggest potato skins ever! It’s more like half a potato with a little bit of potato scooped out of the middle to pile on a mound of filling. The carnitas were tender and juicy. The sour cream and guacamole added just an accent of cool creaminess. Thumbs up!

Master Louie Salad

Master Louie Salad is a classic Louie featuring jumbo lump crab (not imitation) and whole bay shrimp with shredded iceberg lettuce, avocado, asparagus, cool cucumber, hard-boiled egg, roma tomato, and house-made Louie dressing. The salad tasted fresh with healthy mix of ingredients. This salad had LOTS OF CRAB! The Louie dressing looks like thousand island but a little different. It’s a mayonnaise based dressing with red chili sauce, minced green onions green chili peppers. The dressing was invented back in the early 1900s and is almost always served with crab. The Catch’s version matched perfectly with the crab and shrimp. Thumbs up!

16 oz. Ribeye

The 16 oz. Ribeye is hand-cut choice Greater Omaha Premium Black Angus Beef (USA-certified and aged 28 days for optimum tenderness) ribeye served with potato cassoulet and asparagus. It was a nice size steak with really good flavor, perfectly marbled and seasoned well on the outside. Although, it was overcooked from medium rare to medium, they did offer to make another one. The rest of our party was well into their meals and offered a dessert instead. They really make every effort to make sure you are happy with your meal. A baked potato was substituted for the cassoulet. The baked potato was HUGE and baked to perfection with a fluffy interior. Thumbs up!

Chocolate Porter Ancho Chili Braised Short Ribs of Beef

Chocolate Porter Ancho Chili Braised Short Ribs of Beef was served with roasted poblano corn mashed potatoes, braising au jus, sautéed vegetables and topped with crispy fried onions. This has to be the best braised short rib I’ve ever had! The meat just melted like butter. The ancho chili gives it a nice smoky flavor, not spicy at all. The chocolate porter gave it a caramelized, almost burgundy sauce flavor. Perfectly executed dish! Thumbs up, way up!

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake is the classic Southern-style buttermilk red velvet cake baked to order, iced table side with cream cheese vanilla frosting and served with vanilla ice cream and toasted pecans and seasonal fruit. The presentation in a cast iron skillet is wonderful. The server brought it out and slathered it with the cream cheese frosting tableside and topped it off with the ice cream, pecans and fruit. It’s a cool tableside show at the end of your meal. If you do decide on it, let your server know in advance as it takes 30 minutes to prepare. Thumbs up!
