Description: Our casual waterfront restaurant is located right on the docks of Hyannis Harbor across from the Hy-Line ferries. Dine inside, where the look is all about classic seaside style, or outside on our heated patio while watching the boats sail in and out of the harbor. The menu features everything from thick, juicy burgers and garden-fresh salads to fresh native seafood and prime beef. Visit the Black Cat Tavern, year-round favorite among locals and visitors alike. Serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch with entertainment four nights a week in the lounge. Plenty of free parking with valet service offered for your convenience.

“Stopping here was a spur of the moment thing and turned out well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We have only had lunch here, but found the service to be very good, and the food was enjoyable and nice and hot.
You are opposit the harbour, and there is a patio you can sit on, with the most amazing patio heaters I have ever seen. We certainly were not cold, but cannot vouch for the interior.
Happy to recommend it based on our experience.

“fresh, tasty, well served”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had a full dinner for 3 people (seafood only). Soup, scallops, lobster and all siders were fresh and delicious. Even a salmon for our 1 year old son has been prepared according to our directions. Their staff was friendly and pro. This is a place where you have to eat while visiting Cape Cod.

“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just had dinner at the Black Cat and it was wonderful. Service was prompt and pleasant as well. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was that the air conditioning was cold and unnecessary so.
