I do not know how this place gets good reviews the food is awful and desserts are even worse. Its' very very dirty in there staff looks dirty grungy and like they are strung out on drugs. I had a chipped glass too with my drink. My dessert was a fondant sugar bomb with a dried cake, it tasted gluten... More

People in the service industry work hard, support their families and that includes my biggest competitors, we are all in this business together and... More

The is no denying that the food is absolutely amazing and portions are generous enough that that you leave feeling very satisfied. However, the size of the pour for the $16 glass of wine was very small, saying it was 4oz is being generous. It definitely didn't ruin our experience but it will be skipped next time around.

This place offers fun, delicious dishes in a casual atmosphere. It's a bit noisy but that was fine and to be expected. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our food and had a great time! You must get the Brussels sprouts! Some of the best we've ever had.

The Red Cat was all about local beer, Brussel sprouts and the Jaws movie...luckily we had finished eating before the sea turned red. Great service and exceptional food...

Had dinner here last Friday night. Food was delicious, hot crispy onions and fresh crab cakes to start. Dinner was local bay scallops and gnocchi, delicate flavor combo. Can't wait to go back!

Had the Red Cat experience Friday night and it did not disappoint! From the" wicked good" drinks to the main dish everything was on point. Crab cakes, gnocchi with scallops and some kinda wonderful short ribs and brussels sprouts.Oh Mama , I'm going back to the Cat. Great fun place.

We eat at the Red Cat as often as we can. The atmosphere is fun and upbeat with an incredible experienced staff. You can have a quieter table on the porch for a romantic night, sit at the bar for some fun conversation and excellent cocktails with the bartender or at a table inside to get a little taste of...

Had a fabulous dinner on Friday night. The gnocchi and local scallops were to die for! The chef came out and spoke with our table as well as others, such a nice touch. Make sure you try the ginger infused lemonade - perfect

Following several suggestions and Trip Adviser reviews, the two of us had dinner at the Red Cat last night. Very quaint and personable atmosphere, however we thought the food was average good and not a "wow, this was worth a over $200 dinner experience"

A very intimate, low-key dining experience for locals & newbies alike. The "fried chicken" is pretty special! We were there on a Sunday night in early Oct. but can just imagine what it must be like in high-season - yikes! Funny thing - they don't serve coffee???
