Always a Fun Place to Eat

The decor is fun. The food is good with generous servings. Our gang enjoys their Mexican entrees as well as their seafood and burgers. The salad bar is the best in town. The servers are friendly, but be forewarned service is very slow, but that just gives you more time to hang out with family and... read more

The cafe was manned by one server. We went and got our menus. The server finally arrived and took our drink and food orders. We got our drinks fairly quickly but the food took awhile. One plate was tacos with rice and beans. Beans were cold and rice had no taste. Another plate was chili and grilled cheese sandwhich. The... More

It's unacceptable to me that your food was so poorly prepared, 5aRBy6, and I want to apologize if anything was cold or burned. Believe it or not, we care deeply about the quality of the food we serve, and I wish you let your server know you were unhappy. We would have made things right on the spot. Hopefully next... More

My husband and I had been to Stray Cat Café a number of times. We recently bought property just outside of Moorefield. Stray Cat was a great place to get a good, albeit greasy, meal. Of course, if you don't enjoy fried food smothered in cheese for no good reason...you can stop reading this review now! Just this past Saturday... More

Marierose, I'm very much shocked to hear about your experience, as I myself would not be pleased to hear vulgar music in a bar, much less my own. I want you to know that I'm listening, and as we speak I am investigating your claims. I hope you might take a moment to reach out directly and speak with me,... More

Stopped here on a trip back from Seneca Rocks. It wasn't crowded at all and we were able to sit immediately. Servers were fast and very nice.

Great food for a decent price. Was a seated right away. Waitress was prompt. Music got loud a few times, made it Hard to hear the person next to me. Few drunks got a little loud but was taken care of. Probably won't visit with kids on a weekend night again, but definitely during the the day.

Keyser circa 86' this place was really, really special, wild décor, locals with stories and vittles that were ORIGINAL. 'Chicken Chimi' was a work of art that tempted the taste buds and produced Pavlovian like results.

A nice little restaurant. Clean, not fancy, not a chain. Good food for the money, handmade guacamole, great burgers, good Mexican fare and a great variety of other choices. Good beer selection. Not fancy, but affordable. Large burgers with whatever toppings yoU like. Definitely a return trip is in order and it's easy on the wallet.
