The Cat's Meow is a fun and friendly place to visit. The food is good from the salad to the burgers. The price is reasonable and the ambiance is great for a date night or for a lunch out with friends!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2015 NEW

Stopped in for a business lunch with about a dozen others in March 2015. Had a chicken sandwich that was rather good but nothing spectacular. Some others in our group had a salad with steak and fries called the Flapper and seemed quite pleased. Nice ambiance in the restaurant but the food I had was ordinary.

You won't be disappointed. Excellent meal and very good service. I had the "Blue" Filet which is a filet mignon with blue cheese and my wife had the Blackened Salmon. Both cooked perfect.

If you're staying at Manheim B & B be sure to stop in this restaurant which is in walking distance! Good food, good menu selection and great service! We were with friends and they liked the beer selection also, which made it nice to stroll back to B & B!!!

Was in Manheim on business yesterday and needed a place to grab some food. Someone recommended this place so we made the drive over. Had a very cool, historic feel to it. Pics of Old hollywood stars on the wall. Greta Garbo, Harold Lloyd, Rudolph Valentino, etc. I don't know if any stayed there back in its heyday but fun... More

Called ahead for a group of 28 and they were more than happy to accommodate. Great food, atmosphere and service! I'm a repeat customer and was not disappointed.

We went to the restaurant on 1-16-15. We called ahead 717-664-3370 and was told there was a 1 hour wait. They do take reservations so we went ahead and made a reservation. The style is kind of like the Roaring 20's Era. There were lots of old pictures of the original building. The food was very good. I ordered the... More

My husband and I ate at the Cat's Meow on Saturday night. He ordered the duck, which was a special that night, and I ordered the Seafood Gabrielle, which is shrimp, scallops and baby clams in a garlic herb butter sauce over linguini. Both entrees were very good. The salad was disappointing in that it was Iceburg lettuce which has... More

The menu was about what one would expect from a small town like Manheim. What surprised me were the specials. A roasted duck, a vegetarian special, and a seafood combo of salmon topped with crab and with bacon-wrapped scallops. The appetizers were fantastic. Try the razor fries. They are covered with ham, sautéed peppers, onions, and mushrooms. The French onion... More
