The people were nice, but the dining room is worn out. Looked the same as when we were there 17 years ago, nothing updated. Most of the food was okay but nothing special though. Crab cakes were flavorless however. But as I said, servers were nice enough, even offered to take crab cake off the bill.

The staff was very friendly and prompt. They have recommendations and we overheard other customers raving about the oysters, tuna tartare, watermelon salad, crab bisque, so that was helpful in making selections! Special cocktails were delicious. Fresh grilled swordfish was tender and the duck was amazing. The pecan pie was to die for. We had not been here in years but now we want to make this a go-to spot. I can’t wait to go back. Every item on the menu sounded like something I wanted to try. Hats off the the chef for creating a perfect dinner menu of interesting ingredients.
I read other reviews about not liking the decor, but I loved it. It fits the name. Tables were spaced apart and the noise level was very low. Would five this 6 stars if I could!

We always saw Krazy Kat’s and finally decided to give it a try... for something fun before our stay-cation week was over. Krazy Kat’s was t he perfect choice.The atmosphere and art work were quirky and fun. The history of the building was fascinating. My swordfish was absolutely delicious, and my husband thoughroly enjoyed his crabcakes. Our shrimp cocktail was fresh and perfect. The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. We had a totally relaxing and enjoyable evening!

A very nice dinner for two. The food was excellent. The dining room was a little dark and the hostess didn’t turn on any background music until 7:15. The best part of Krazy Kat’s is it’s proximity to the Inn at Montchanin if you are a guest.

We stayed at the Inn at Montchanin recently and dined at Krazy Kats. Tremendous experience! Our servers Javiar and Max were great! Very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing/ They offer small plates on everything which we appreciated. I had seared tuna and my wife had the swordfish. Both were delicious, as were the desserts. I would dine here again.

We were a table of 4 seated in a corner. The ambiance was lovely. Service was good considering the shortage of staff. Multiple people waited on us but someone was always available. My biggest issue was the food. Our waiter was very enthusiastic about the heirloom tomatoes and buratta cheese and when asked if they were definitely ripe heirloom, he enthusiastically said yes! Well, they were unripe, hard, bland restaurant tomatoes. I ate 1 piece and left the rest. Inedible. And he raved about the special of the night being swordfish. He described it with delicious terms. If he ever said “chorizo”, the 4 of us never heard it. Once it arrived, and I took a bite, we found it sits on a bed of chorizo and sweet potato. I have an extreme adversity to a sausage taste and it became extremely uncomfortable trying to get rid of this mouthful of chorizo. Another member of our party also said she would never had gotten it if she had known chorizo was involved. WHY does a chef chose to destroy a wonderfully cooked piece of seafood by smothering it with a red meat? I’ll never understand it, but the waiters should always stress that the fish has a lot of meat flavor. Some non fish eaters may be attracted to it!

Over the past years Krazy Kat’s has always been our choice of restaurants to celebrate special occasions. However, we feel the quality of the food and the overall experience has significantly diminished over the years. There was a time when they offered an exceptional 4 course meal with delicious wine pairings, but that is no longer on the menu. At our recent visit in July 2021 for a birthday, the menu seemed limited. We ordered tuna tartar as one appetizer, which was presented beautifully but once you removed the mountain of crispy chips there was little tuna and it lacked any noticeable flavor. The other appetizer was foie gras, which was the size of a 50 cent piece. Although it was tasty with a few dates, plums, and peanuts, seemed small for $19. For entrees the strip steak ($45) was of good size and flavorful. However, the duck breast ($26) (which the waiter recommended as one of their specialties) was cold when it arrived at the table. It appeared that it sat in the kitchen for quite awhile, and at that point the sauce had all been absorbed by the mashed potatoes leaving the duck dry, cold, and tasteless. When we mentioned that to the waiter he expressed uncertainty as to how to remedy the situation. When I suggested warming it and adding more sauce, he took the plate and in a few minutes brought it back slightly warmer with the original contents reconfigured on a new plate (with no added sauce). The waiter did admit that the chef let it sit for awhile, and at any other high end restaurant they would have graciously replaced the duck with a freshly cooked entree. Other special amenities that they used to provide which were nonexistent on this visit included beautiful plates decorating the tables, attention by the waiter to pour wine (from our $130 bottle) and cleaning up any spillage on the tablecloth. We were deeply disappointed that one of our previously favorite restaurants has declined so much and regret that we will not be returning.

Wonderful lunch at Krazy Kat's - our first time back since the pandemic started. Two of us had the smoked salmon sandwich, which was scrumptious. It's cold-smoked, my favorite kind. One diner had the burger, which was obviously excellent because there wasn't a crumb left.
Service was attentive yet unobtrusive, which is nearly always the case at Krazy Kat's. For lunch we sat in the sunny room, which is just delightful. Looking forward to going back. I hope they're able to expand their lunch days by fall.
