had dinner at the red cat along with 2 friends. the dishes - both appetizers and mains- were fine, if somewhat underwhelming. my main was the bbq pork rib chop - surprisingly bland. the prices would have justified a significantly better meal.

I sat at the small bar and had an appetizer, it was terrific and the wait staff was friendly and helpful.
