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.

Needed something to eat while strolling the harbor and spied the Black Cat. The interior was clean and neat. Service was a bit spotty and we seemed to be handed off to another waitress, but they were surprisingly busy for an off-season weekend lunch. Nothing wrong with the food, but then did not stand out either. Another satisfactory meal from what I perceived as an average restaurant. Regulars seem to rave in other reviews and we were just passing through. Sounds like we needed to go to the Wednesday Italian Night.

From the shrimp cocktail to the lobster all of their fresh seafood is delicous. The atmosphere inside is elegant. If you want to see the view of the water you give up the classiness for the appearance of a picnic setting. There are other resteraunts with much better views of the water than here. I prefer sitting inside for the wonderful ambiance. The servers are friendly and attentive. In season it appears that their parking lot has a fee. You just tell the valet that you're going for dinner / lunch and you don't have to pay. The food is pricey but it is well worth it.

Just in Hyannis for an overnight stop we had an excellent dinner at the Black Cat. We started out at the bar that is set in absolute superb marine/sailing decor in mint condition ! We had scalops and swordfish, both absolutely delicious in very refined style. Compared to Nantucket, much better value for money. Highly recommended.
