Our friends who grew up summering on the Vineyard took us here for dinner. It is very casual and funky. Make a reservation because it can get crowded. The food is wonderful using fresh seafood and other ingredients. You can't tell from the outside but amazing food waits for you inside. If you aren't too full from dinner, back door... More

We happen to stumble upon Red Cat in Oak Bluffs and had a completely unexpected five star meal. The brussel sprouts were life changing. The service was impeccable. The atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting the Vineyard!

The HobKnob (our B&B) staff recommended. The taxi ride from Edgartown was 10 minutes. We arrived in front of a funky hip house converted into a restaurant. We sat in the front room (converted porch) and enjoyed amazing food. They have fun cocktails, mine was a bourbon concoction, that fit the theme of the eccentric environment. The staff was friendly...

The Red Cat is on a side street just off of Circuit Ave, and if you didn't know it was there you would easily miss it. In fact, I walked right past it when I was trying to find it for a booked reservation! However, now that you're reading this, do not miss your chance to eat at the Red... More

I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. I wish I had taken pictures but my husband and I decided no phones at dinner tonight.... The food is unbelievably good. Hands down my favorite restaurant on the island. Everything is cooked perfectly and has the most amazing flavors. Tonight I had the scallops with creamy corn risotto. And... More

This little Red Cat is a must if you vacation on Martha's Vineyard! Our dinner was so delicious; we ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer and sea bass over risotto. The chef did not over salt the food which I find happens often in many restaurants. I was also so impressed by the energy and vibe of the place and how... More

I got the swordfish and it was simply mouthwatering. My wife got the chicken and really was the best chicken dish she's had. We're use to fine restaurants and great food in the Boston area and I've got to tell you, this was simply a dining experience that tickled our palettes! We've been coming to Martha's Vineyard for 30 years... More
