Had the opportunity to try Good Catch Boil House during their soft opening in early February. One word: mmm. Is that a word or more a concept? Either way, it was delicious and I can’t wait to head back for more. We decided to forego the Louisiana-style hot boil just because it we weren’t in the mood, but opted for everything fried and salty instead. Ha ha. Can you tell it was a dinner with teachers and report card season was FINALLY over? We needed a little pick me up and this was certainly it.
We had our eyes set on the lobster nachos, but the waitress said the chef hadn’t perfected the “cheese melt” on it yet so he didn’t want to serve it to us. Perhaps our puppy dog eyes (and drool) convinced her to ask him again. Out it came and was it ever yummy (warning, must share with a group of 5 or you’ll never finish it)! Lots of fresh toppings, chunks of lobster, and ooey gooey cheese. A friend found it a bit dry, but I used an insane amount of salsa so I was good.
We also ordered the oyster sliders to share and they were probably my favourite dish along with their Cajun fries. The buns had the right touch of sweetness and the oysters from the Pacific were perfectly tender with the right amount of bite. More fried goodness came in the form of the soft shell crab and torpedo shrimp. Everything was just awesome and the service was top notch.
The restaurant actually was inspired by Louisiana yet also calls itself a sports bar. It is very bright, with high ceilings and feels spacious. They had a variety of tables and high bar seating areas. Our booth felt a bit tight due to our huge winter coats so perhaps that is the only physical improvement I can think of. (I found the Popeye statue at the front a bit odd too, to be honest.)
Feeling for seafood and sports? Give it a try at 179 Enterprise Blvd Unit M-109, Markham, ON.
