Always great food

I have been to Crabs & Cues many times. The food is always good and the service is always friendly. They have a good selection of seafood. The food and atmosphere is casual. The restaurant is always busy, a good sign,

We wanted to go someplace different for my Mother's 70th Birthday. We headed down the Northern Neck to just see what we could find. We ran across KC's with the help from Roadtrippers.com and were a little concerned. A sports bar and pool tables? Well we gave it a try and loved it. Mom had the Fried Flounder, I had... More

My family and I have gone to KCs for about five years. While they have a limited menu, we have always enjoyed soft shell crabs, and fried chicken. Within the last six months I notice the quality of the food go way day. We stopped by one day and they said they had no friend chicken as we lost power... More

Although we have dined here many times, our most recent trip was the best yet. My family loves their oysters and other fine seafood. I had the fresh flounder broiled with a side salad. They were having a "prime rib" special as well and my hubby ordered that. My Mother and Sister both had their fried oyster dinners. The food... More

This is more of a pool establishment than anything . There is a restaurant and the food is average. Service is fair to poor. Once order is taken and food is brought, often you don't see wait staff until the bill comes. There is a large bar and a section with a lot of pool tables. It is clean and... More

Sent my daughter and son-in-law out for their first night out since having a child. They wanted something laid back. KC's is very laid back. They hated the meal. Canned green beans in the vegetable season? Frozen shrimp in the heart of seafood country - and it tasted frozen :( To top it off they paid the price of a... More

My family went here on a Sunday afternoon, which turns out to be about the time the rest of Lancaster county goes to this restaurant. They have open seating, which is kind of uncomfortable to do in a crowded restaurant. Many of the seafood items on the menu are fried and what wasn't fried was very expensive. They had run... More

Came here for lunch during Memorial Day weekend and we enjoyed it. The interior decoration is horrible, but the food is decent and the prices are very reasonable. A good place to grab a quick bite, but certainly not a date-worthy spot.

Lunch there on a Saturday afternoon to take a break from our wine tour! The restaurant was recommended to us by a local at our last stop and TripAdvisor confirmed with the reviews I read! Our service was very good accompanied by some great food! A large menu of options to please any taste and a 'sports bar' environment made... More
