We arrived just on time for our reservation. It's really cool funky place. It was easy to get in and have a drink at the cut little bar. Ironically Jaws was playing on the TV over the bar, in HD! So Cool! The whole experience was simple easy and delicious! We all had one of the various local fish specials... More

My husband declared this as the best meal he has had in months (thanks!) seriously, this was amazing. So fresh with the natural flavors as the focus. We enjoyed the Island Fresca and the striped bass with corn risotto. He has been searching for amazing risotto since our Italy vacation and this finally lived up! Reasonably priced wine list and...

Just came back from our annual visit to MV. We started our vacation with the Red Cat on the first night. Probably went here more out of habit, but the halibut special with corn/lobster risotto and marinated tomatoes ended up being one of the best meals of the year. I am sure it is tough to please all the people... More

I ordered the vegetarian meal and got completely stiffed. A few small and I mean small dipping bowls and a salad that came with a creamy dressing all ready on it. At no time was I told about a salad. A few cherry tomatoes a few small beats in the bowls. If the chef doesn't want to make the vegetarian... More

Farm and sea to table FRESH! So much food for the price! Sea bass was great! Fried farm raised chicken with a watermelon salad was delish! For dessert, we had the creme brûlée. Looks like a hole in the wall. Very special place!

Eating here is a treat. Great atmosphere. I've eaten here 5 times and it deserves a better review than what I can write. My food, as well as my group, is always cooked perfect and extremely tasty. A definite one of a kind little restaurant from heaven. Worth every penny and I walk away very full. Plate size is enough.... More

We went here based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. Didn't find it as amazing as some have said, but I do realize every restaurant has off nights. We six were jammed into a corner with two tables for two placed together, so two of us had to deal with the split between the tables. Service started out fine but... More

This place is our favorite. The food is AMAZING, the atmosphere is AMAZING with Rolling Stones playing. It is just a great upbeat place. The food the best I ever had. Everything is fresh and the chef even showed us the fish our meal came from. The meals are not greasy, and we don't feel overly full afterward. The brussel... More

We were excited to celebrate our parents' 25th anniversary at the restaurant. We were ready to spend a few thousand dollars on appetizers, dinner and drinks. Imagine my surprise when I called a few days ahead and was told that they could not accommodate a group of our size, even if we sat at separate tables. The person we spoke... More

Sarah O, Owner at The Red Cat Kitchen at Ken N' Beck, responded to this review

What this reviewer didn't mention, is that theirs was a group of 40 people which would be a stretch to accommodate on even a slow night. But on the night in question, we had been booked solid for over a week and simply had nowhere to seat 40 people even if they sat at separate tables. Our restaurant seats 52... More
