So....my friends and I went here for a benefit ride for veterans. It's a well kept restaurant (on the newer side) that had a limited menu for this event. I expected as much but for $12 the crab cake sandwich was tiny, not that good...More

We had a late lunch and I think my crabs were re warmed. The amount of food and the service were good. Would not return.

You know it's real when you the only out-of-towners there and the local policeman is having dinner at the next table. Open only during local crab season. Kathy's is for sweet crabs seasoned well but not overpowering. Go for it!!

Go to Kathy's Crab House often, can't beat the quality and size of their crabs, they usually come from the Chester River, sweet and meaty. The fries are a most try. Service is great, too.

Only disappointed because Kathy's ran out of food. Medium crabs only but large crabs were saved for customers that called ahead. Some entrees were unavailable along with some drinks. Do not get me wrong, local resturants serve an important part to any community, I just...More
