My son and I ate here on a recommendation from the Airy Hills B&B. We had endured the red eye flight from Los Angeles and were exhausted and hungry. Service was quick, the food was perfect, and we enjoyed the old school charm of the place. I had the lasagna and it hit the spot perfectly along with the side... More

We stopped in at the restaurant for lunch. The hostess was new and left us standing at the desk for quite awhile. Then we were left to sit at the table because the waitress seemed too busy. The food was good and once the service got underway, it went well.

My husband, me and two of our friends were on our way back to Georgia from a trip to Maine, when we came through Manheim. We were tired and hungary and we were told to go to the Cat's Meow. Of all the places we ate, going and coming, the Cat's Meow was the best of all. We are planning... More

Cat's is ALWAYS our choice for excellent food and great atmosphere. We love the service as well. In fact most of the time when we eat elsewhere, we usually say - "it would have been better at Cat's"! We especially love the salads, shrimp and tips, and the salmon is delicious. If you like liver and onions, this is the... More

The ambiance, the food, the waitress were all fantastic. The clam chowder and crab cakes delicious and the orange cream cake was especially good. The location, history, and unique 1920's style are worth the trip. The only drawback was our timing. Saturday night. It was the perfect night to eat on the porch but we're not smokers so we moved...

On a suggestion by our innkeeper (Tea Kettle Inn) we went here for dinner one night. What a great place! Our food was delicious, very accommodating of my gluten allergy, and our server was excellent and attentive (and fun to talk to). We love the 1920s ambience, so it was just a great evening. My 7 year old enjoyed it,... More

We have enjoyed dinner at the Cat's Meow many times but on Sunday night, May 29th, we decided to try Music Trivia. It was a blast! The host was a lot of fun and we really had a good time. And it goes without saying, the food was delicious. We will be back to try our luck again.

Great place, food and service are good. Nice variety to choose from. The eggrolls under appetizers are especially tasty. The tenderloin tips are a favorite. Good wings too. The crab cakes are t the only item we have ordered that wasn't very good, mostly filler.. reservations are highly recommended. Very busy place, gets a bit noisy.

Do not overlook this place. You might never find it. Near the railroad tracks. Meatballs are homemade and very good. Nice people. Love the history of the place. Kids loved the french fries.

We always eat at Cat's when visiting our family. It is within walking distance from their home. It is a real treat for our grandchildren. The food is always good. Great place to eat. We will visit again in August 2016.,
