I had been wanting to eat at this restaurant for awhile and finally got an off season reservation for a birthday dinner for my husband. Five of us ate there. It was, as always, very crowded and we had to wait for our seats. It is a small, crowded place, and very loud, a situation not helped by the head... More

Ben chooses what's going to be on the menu. They take into consideration allergies and serve you one amazing meal

While the renowned Brussels sprouts are sinfully delicious, the rest of our meals were no better than average and the quality of fish entrees was a tad disappointing given the Red Cats proximity to the ocean and the cuts of fish were certainly not good enough to stand alone on plates with pedestrian accompaniments. Our table was a cramped makeshift... More

We were excited to try out the Red Cat after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor, and after being unable to get a reservation during our last visit to the Vineyard. This time around, we made sure that our reservation was made a week in advance. We arrived and were seated fairly quickly. The seating arrangements are rather cramped, so be... More

Very comfortable and welcoming setting in an old home. We were seated on the enclosed porch which was perfect as we had read in other reviews that the noise level was 'energetic' in the main dining area. Our server, Brendan, was engaging and very efficient. We ordered a pork entree which included crispy Brussel sprouts and a bluefish entree--all exceptionally... More

I eat at the Red Cat as often as I can, which is generally in the shoulder season, last minute. The restaurant draws a large crowd during the summer,and it's understandable. Enjoyable every time. This past week, we chose to dine here with the family for a birthday celebration. 5 of us, we were seated at a comfortable table in... More

We enjoyed a very good dinner at the Red Cat Kitchen. The brussel sprouts were the special treat - and we don't usually like them. The cod on mashed potatoes with calamari on top was especially tasty. The special mussel soup wasn't very special. The beet salad (cold) was appreciated by the beet lover at our table. A good meal...

Extreme disappointment is the best way to describe our dining experience at the Red Cat Kitchen. Rude waitress, crammed eating space, horrible food at an outrageous price. Two of us ordered the lobster risotto, neither of us got any resemblance to lobster in this dish. A few tiny pieces of lobster which taste was completely overpowered by the excessive amount... More

Two of my friends and I ate at The Red Cat Kitchen during a recent vacation. We all ordered the Chef's Imagination dishes which rather than a dish off the menu. Each of the dishes was a surprise and to say we were delighted with each of them is an understatement. The food was prepared using fresh produce, fish and... More

when you walk in your met with eye exploding abeyance of you have arrived , The meal are off the chart, mouth watering explosion. The owner chief has a creative mind that keeps you coming back for more. If your on the vineyard and haven't tried this restaurant your missing a real vineyard treat!
