Fourth of July at Cathy's

Another great experience. Great food. They cater to the tourists so they were encouraging people to come for the Fourth of July. We were told there would be fireworks and there were, but no big commercial production. A couple of restaurants along the beach set off fireworks, but the patrons set off... read more

We ate at Cathy's twice while in St. Kitt's (for a week). This speaks highly of the delicious food. It is on the beach, you can sit on picnic tables or inside the open air restaurant. Quite rustic but a good vibe and great ribs!!!

I've read lots of good things about this bar and grill so when we were in Frigate Bay our party of six tried it out. I grew up in South Florida and have eaten spiny lobster my whole life and Kathy's was as good as any I've ever had. First, it was fresh and big, full of meat. Secondly, it... More

I wanted to like this place, but the food was just bad. We ordered shrimp and lobster and both were overcooked and rubbery. It was really disappointing and was probably one of the worst meals during our visit.

This is a beach bar restaurant, more restaurant than bar. The servers are from another era and do not understand customer service. They try but do not succeed. Everything occurs slowly and with very little verbal explanation. The food is plentiful and homemade and good. The lobster and fish is for the most part fresh and well prepared. Do not... More

We've been to Cathy's several times now and each time we have a delicious meal. It does take longer than some other restaurants but everything is cooked to perfection. It's located on 'The Strip' along with several other restaurants and bars. You can eat in the shack or on the beach. We love the relaxed, island atmosphere. We have the... More

Based on a recommendation from our FunJet travel planner at the hotel, we ate at Cathy's for dinner on a Thursday evening. Apparently Cathy gets her lobster delivered on Thursdays, so that's the best time to get it. Like all establishments on the strip, Cathy's building falls somewhere between a restaurant and a shack, but that shouldn't put anyone off.... More

Cathy herself is very friendly and her food seems to have a good reputation generally. However, she couldn't have employed a more surly and unfriendly male server and chef. The restaurant went into meltdown on the evening we were there with people walking out having waited too long for their meals and others complaining about waiting ages for their bill.... More

Recommended by locals we talked with on the island. The first time we went we looked at the large tables without food or drink and left. The second time we hit a lull and managed to be served within a reasonable island time. Limited staff and kitchen facilities. The food was good. The lobster looked great but was out of... More

What a great way to chill and have a great meal at the end of day looking out onto the water and the sand under your toes! This is a perfect beach food destination! The ribs are delicious too! And home made french fries! All good.
