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.

“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

We expected more but the entire experience was barely adequate - service was relatively indifferent and the food was okay but not anything we would go out of our way to find.

“What is Scrod? Tried it, loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

The Black Cat Tavern was a wonderful surprise. Lovely place. Low lighting, white tablecloths, and a good crowd, but quiet. Our server was delightful, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. She made some great suggestions. My husband and I love seafood and fish, and noticed that they had a fish called Scrod that we had never tried. We both ordered a Scrod dish, and loved it! We always enjoy trying cuisine that is unique to the area that we are in. We loved this place and will return on our next trip.

“Not a leisurely meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Went for the clam chowder which was good, but not as great as expected. The food was good, but the atmosphere left you feeling very rushed. The waiters and waitresses were running from one end of the dining room to the other, bumping into tables. It was noisy and hurried. Not the ideal place for a leisurely vacation dinner.

“Great Lobster Bisque!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

During our stay we ended up going here 3 times! If you can try and get a table outside to people and and enjoy the harbor views... otherwise a little dark inside. My 1st experience we enjoyed the popcorn shrimp as an appetizer and I had the lobster roll and husband had a bowl of the lobster bisque. The lobster roll was great nice and fresh and light tasting.... but the bisque..... we went back the next evening and sat in the outdoor back patio area and enjoyed some wine and a bowl of bisque as it was a little chilly. Came back the 3rd time and I enjoyed the bisque and the fried scallops which where wonderful!!!!! We also shared as a group the spicy calamari which had the right amount of spice and sweet. Everybody in the group loved their dinners.... from Mussels to Fish Tacos to a Veggie Burger.
