Friends told us about the food here and we were not disappointed. Good food and lots of it. Because this is a sports bar it was a little noisy but quality of food made it worthwhile.

The Black Cat is a very popular watering hole for locals. The food is typical bar food and mostly overdone with sauces, mayo etc... That's not to say the food doesn't have flavor, it's just simply bar food... The staff is great and very welcoming. Very limited beer selection, but what it's located in a small hard working town.

The food has always been good at the Cat. There aren't a lot of Family places to eat in the Thief River Falls area and we have come back to the Cat many times for their good food. We've eaten at the Brunch Buffet and we've ordered many different entrees and they have all been good.

I've stopped here a few times with friends and with family. It's usually been busy every time but they're quick on the service and the food has always been great. We help ourselves to the popcorn while we sip on a beverage before we order. Might pay a little more for a burger basket, but it's well worth it. You... More

Nice place to get together with friends for some drinks but there's nothing special when it comes to the menu options. Food is decently priced for this area. Haven't had a bad meal here but service isn't always on key. Co-workers and I use to go here for lunch but service became to slow and we just didn't have the... More

This place was a nice friendly bar where you can get good food at a good price. Kids are welcome with parents (till a certain time, I think) I had the steak with mushrooms and was happy. The steak was cooked right and the mushrooms were a nice topping. I will go there again.

Most restaurants understand that much of the lunch crowd wants to get in and out rather quickly. Not this place, they are consistently slow. The food is okay, not on my top-10 list but certainly passable. Decent variety on the menu.

Food is pretty good, had a chicken ceaser salad prepared well taste was good, ordered a pizza 1 night if you want a pizza similar to a tombstone then you are in the right place. Good variety of beer, pool table, big buckhunter, tons of nostalgic arctic cat items wall to wall and the ceiling.

My wife and I eat here regularly. She enjoys the taco salad. I'm a fan of the burgers. The EMT burger is my favorite. A must stop when in Thief River Falls. During the winter months, they are conveniently located on snowmobile trails. A great rest and recoupe on a long ride. Well worth the stop.
