The Skinny: The view alone makes Prime Catch a destination.
Fortunately for diners, the restaurant matches its view with well-prepared seafood.
During a recent lunch, I feasted on a dish of lump crab — think of it as a crabcake without the filler.
Big, tender, sweet lumps of crab surrounded a dollop of caramelized roasted corn. It was drizzled with mustard dressing and was accompanied by crisp, finely diced cole slaw that wanted a little more zing.
Also tasty: fish tacos, filled with tender mahi, and the quiche of the day, with large chunks of scallops and crab, and bits of asparagus.
We finished with the Key lime pie, that perfect blend of sweet and tart.
