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 wish my experience was better. The staff was very nice and the patrons provided a... More

A no-frills crab house by the Delaware City branch Canal. A good crab cake sandwich with excellent french fries. Well worth a second trip.

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.

Have been to this restaurant several times and never disappointed. When it is summer and crab season, always get steamed crab here. Glad they are staying open all year now with season appropriate menu. Hear they now serve breakfast haven't tried it but can bet it's awesome as is all the other meals there. I would highly recommend this restaurant.... More

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.

Local crab and seafood restaurant is once again open. We were told, Kathy's will be open all winter this year and the menu will be expanded to include breakfast along with lunch and dinner. The menu is still being updated with some of the old favorites and several new items. As an appetizer, we had the Hot Crab dip, new... More
