Plenty of seafood to choose from. Had a flounder sandwich and cup of best crab bisque I've had in a long time. Piping hot! Service was adequate, but lacking in professional care. Had to ask for everything, i.e' tartar sauce for sandwich, ketchup for fries,...More

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!!

We took our Daughter and Son-in-law and their children at Kathy's. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Kathy came over to the table and spoke to all of us and the grandchildren really enjoyed that.

If you are looking for seafood this is the place to go. The steamed shrimp are fantastic.I was'nt particularly impressed with the crab cake as it was lost on the bun.But it did have a lot of crab and no filler.
