New eatery in town: Kat’s Seafood replaces Lake Town Tavern

Feb. 2. After years of being a go-to night spot in Cornelius and even a breakfast meeting place, the former Lake Town Tavern is now a seafood restaurant, with a new name and the same ownership.

Kat’s Seafood Kitchen debuted in January with a $100,000-plus upfit, new furnishings and menu complete with littleneck clams, ahi tuna, seasonal fish dishes and seafood gumbo.

The change wasn’t due to strict COVID regulations on bars, Bennett explained: “We had a full-service kitchen.”

Concepts have a life span

“We felt like Lake Town had served the community a long time and had run its course,” said Bennett, who is also co-owner of Jack’s Corner Tap in Cornelius.

The new eatery is “total mindset and culture change,” according to co-owner Rad Bennett.

Work in progress: New sign coming, more interior work under way and plans for a new outdoor area this spring.

Future plans for new locations? “We are exploring options in Huntersville, Davidson and Mooresville at the moment,” Bennett said.

  1. We had been looking for a good Fish and Chips restaurant and we have found it at Kat’s. Looking forward to sampling other choices on the menu.
