We had lunch here at Kitty's. We all ordered the shrimp basket because someone had recommended it to us. It was delicious! The food was fresh and flavorful. The shrimp were large, butterfly shrimp they flatten and fry. Everything was great. The atmosphere mis very "beachy" and there is a juke box to,play.

The food was very good. The friendly service was exceptional! The hush puppies were great! I believe the owner was there.

I have seen this restaurant for years, the hours are odd during off season and during busy season we just never have made it. The reviews are iffy, we went anyway. The server was okay, not very personal but fast, the food was good. The ladies restroom was the highlight of my dining experience!

Come as you are in your beach attire. Very close to the beach- walking distance. Very friendly family atmosphere. The tea was perfect for the hot afternoon. And the burger was made perfect to order!

The staff was really friendly. The food was not bad. Not a lot of food choices in Surfside so this worked for us! A lot of fried stuff on the menu.

Nothing fancy here- food or prices. Simply burgers, fried stuff, no desserts. Friendly, down-to-earth staff. Nice simple salad, good crabcake, kid-friendly. Old fashioned jukebox and lots of purple and cows. Hours vary on customers. Call first to make confirm closing time.

We were on our way out of town after spending the Memorial Day weekend in the area. We wanted a quick sit-down breakfast and Kitty's was the closest option. Kitty's is primarily an "after the day at the beach" place, but there is certainly a market for a restaurant that serves breakfast. Several small tables and a counter. Locals were... More

Really friendly! Good food! Pet friendly as our little dog was able to eat with us on the grassy patio/picnic area! Quite and seems to be popular with locals!

Great little cafe, perfect for being at the beach. The staff is always very nice and every time we have been, Kitty herself is there, greeting customers or working the register. The food is not fancy, but always good and perfect for the casual beach.
