Loved this place in the 1990's and its just as cool n 2015. David the bartender is fabulous at mixing cocktails and just a cool dude. Love the vibe, the decor and the crowd. All good. My new favorite place to hangout!

The Cats is one of those places you just have to see to appreciate. It has a unique atmosphere of "just plain fun." The food is not exceptional, but it is adequate, filling, and tasty. It's just the all around exuberance of the people and...More

We made our dinner reservation on www.opentable.com and were promptly seated when we arrived. We enjoyed drinks - I had a Stella beer, and my husband a John Wayne (Templeton Rye and bitters). For dinner, I had their very good pork sandwich; and my husband...More
