Unfortunately the were short staffed that night so service was slow and tables stood full of dirty plates for ages. Our waitress was lovely and it was her first night so she was... read more

Went there a few weeks back and sat on the deck to listen to music and eat. While the band was excellent, the food was not. There were very limited options for a vegetarian. Most folks ate seafood and rated it as average. Considering how busy the place was, the service was good. I would go back fo the ambiance... More

I had my daughters graduation party here and I talked with Faith who guided me through the entire process and was there throughout the party. Can I tell you this was the best graduation party ever; the professionalism and the amount of detail the staff exerted to make this a perfect day. The food was absolutely phenomenal; every need, every... More

My mother took my wife and I out for birthday dinner. We ordered the filet at $29.99, and were very disappointed. The meat was very fatty and tasted more like top round. The server was nice and very attentive. We did not ask for a re-do on the filet because the kitchen closed @ 9pm and we were past that... More

A great view of the Georgetown Marina from inside the dining room made for a pleasant setting for our Wednesday evening Date Night. This restaurant has a special menu available for Date Night which includes two salads, two entrees and a bottle of wine for $29.00 ($30.44 including tax). The kitchen offerings include a wide variety of items including seafood,... More

Went to a business Christmas party here and overall I liked it. Had a nice mixed drink, tasty bread and very good appetizers. I loved the old building. Maybe it could have been painted and some things repaired a bit but I took it as part of the ambiance. Depends on your point of view I guess. Had a wonderful... More

I had not been to the Kitty Knight House since it had been renovated and re opened. My friend and my sister decided to stop in to look at their menu before deciding to eat there. We were greeted by Sandy who informed us that the Tavern area was open during the winter months but was not open until 4... More

I had not been here for a few years, but I remembered it as a first class restaurant. Based on that memory, we drove the 25 miles to get there and celebrate my daughter's Birthday. Things have changed. In years past, that had nice white table cloths. Now they have what I would call "Oil Cloth" table cloths. The table... More

Wednesday Evenings is date night at the "Kitty" You and your date get 2 salads, 2 entrees and a bottle of red or white wine, all for $25. The weather was nice enough we could still sit out on the deck overlooking Georgetown Harbor so the atmosphere was beautiful as always. To be honest I can't remember what the 4... More
