Expensive no quality

Second time we ordered takeout from there. $25 for two cheesesteaks and one order fries. Fries were soggy, like last time and the cheesesteak shrunk inside the roll. I won't forget not to order from there again.

We decided to try the black cat, a popular local eatery, for dinner. I ordered the NY strip w/ 3 fried shrimp and my wife had the crab cake. My painfully thin steak arrived with 3 burnt to a crisp shrimp and my wife's crab cake arrived burned dry and having all the flavor of sawdust. The steak was at... More

We often order take out and sometimes dine in. A good place with a big menu. Big bar with local regulars and good beer selection. They also have a packaged good area for beer/liquor take out. We often get the chicken wings and pizza. Good for what it is - a local joint with good bar food.

From the outside, you might think that this place is another so-so diner on an old highway (U.S. 9). Inside it's surprisingly nice and honestly has the nicest men's room that I've seen in a real bar & grill, ever. Well done there.

The food was good, the beer was good and the prices were very reasonable. Looks like a good place to watch a game.

We had lunch at the Black Cat. I had a cheeseburger which was cooked correctly and served with good fries. My husband had a Reuben which was also quite good. They make their own flatbread which our friend had. She said it was excellent. The atmosphere is very nice and staff helpful.
