Always good food at the Black Cat. Great staff and let’s hope that bars are allowed to open soon, before they all go out of business. This is one of, if not THE, best one in the area.

I’d been reluctant to order from restaurants not typically known for take-out but when a neighbor raved about her recent at-home dinner from BCG, I gave it a try. And I’m glad I did! I had the tuna dinner, my friend had the salmon. Nice...portions, flavorful and perfectly cooked. I kind of “panic-ordered” and added wings and a Caesar salad. Really, really good. We had left overs—which given the current situation, were fully appreciated the next day. Bonus—they delivered! Thank you to the Chef and staff at the BCG!More

Will definitely visit again and totally recommend to anyone visiting or passing...by! You’d feel at home!More

We have met friend here a couple times for dinner and love the atmosphere and excellent service. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They truly know their menu and seem very happy to work there. We had grilled shrimp wrap, butternut squash ravioli and a...chicken Cesar salad- all very good. We will continue to make this our meeting place between Wilton and Danbury area.More

What a fantastic place. The menu is terrific, but the daily specials are truly amazing. There was an appetizer of bacon wrapped shrimp with a poblano cheese stuffing that was to die for. The fried clams were succulent, which is not always easy to do....There were 10 other things on the menu I wish I could have tried. I will be back!More

My go to Pub in the area. I know the food is always great here and the service is always top. The beer selection is always rotating with careful thought in bringing some great craft beers.

The bar was very busy and noisy with a birthday crowd, but when they moved on it was nice and quiet! We loved the menu choices, fairly reasonably priced and good portions. I was not especially hungry, so I enjoyed the New England Clam Chowder...and the Crab Cakes. My husband raved about his hearty portion of Guinness Stew. The dessert choices sounded yummy, but that will be another visit..More
