The menu choices are very limited and the wait staff poorly trained & inattentive. Though they typically have good live music on the weekends, you are expected to pay the cover, even if there before the band begins & you intend on leaving once you have finished your dinner!! NO EXCEPTIONS!! & the owner will hover over your table until... More

Stopped in on a recent Sunday evening at recommendation of a local. Live music with elderly couples and young families clogging and two-stepping at this very friendly, casual restaurant. Manager came over, sat with us to explain local oysters and cultivation/harvesting and brought a few over for us to taste. Ordered oysters on half shell and seafood platters and were... More

I wasn't pleased with the staff (or lack of staff) she was nice, but we waited atleast 15 minutes for the server to take our order and then 20 minutes for food (one was a salad and one was a chicken breast) which was pretty annoying, BUT the food was AWESOME! I will come back again and again for the... More

We drove past this place probably 20 times on the way to and from Kilmarnock while on vacation, and finally decided to stop here. We're glad that we did. First off, the waitress was super-nice and recommended the hushpuppies with homemade ranch. She was right on! They were soooo good! The food in general was very good. My wife got... More

We had oysters, shrimp and crab legs. It was very tasty. A bit pricey. No reservations are needed. They offer daily specials.

We decided to go down to the Rivah (what Richmonders call the Northern Neck) and check out KC’S Crab & Cues, located outside the quaint town of Kilmarnock, VA. It has a laid back, casual, family-friendly atmosphere. The restaurant boasts a broad menu including appetizers, steamers, dinners, fried dinners, sides and baskets, sandwiches and subs, soup and salads, and desserts.... More

We came here after we set up camp at Grey's Point. It was recommended but the ladies in the camp store and we were not disappointed. We did not get crabs but did get chicken tenders, steamed shrimp, fried shrimp and oysters, and hush puppies. All the food was great! The gumbo was so good we ended up getting some... More

The seafood here is always fresh and the preparation is top quality Northern Neck style. Get the fried flounder sandwich, fixed right and served with a smile
