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.
The meal starts with wonderful artisan sourdough bread and butter. The bread had a crispy, glazed exterior and spongy inside, tasting much like sourdough bread. It’s really good.
