“Great Seafood Outside in Hyannis”

Black Cat Harbor Shack
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 September 2017

Atmosphere was simply the fact that we were right next to the sidewalk near the harbor in Hyannis.
Service was good--servers were attentive.
Food was really good! My wife and I shared a crab cake appetizer, which had a light horseradish sauce drizzled over. There was more meat than breading, which is always a good thing when it comes to crab cakes. And, every bite was delicious! (Not like in Baltimore, necessarily, but still better than anywhere else I've tried them.) I had Shrimp Tacos, which were meaty--fried shrimp rather than grilled, but still good--and falling out of the tortillas. My wife had fried oysters, which she loved!

We had a drink here while waiting for our table next door. It was very busy and there were a few drunks - one who couldn't stand up and was evicted. Good place to wait while you are in line for the Black Cat Inn next door

Our family ate here one evening. Nice outside seating area with plenty of atmosphere. Server was average and food was not spectacular but for a harbour tourist trap, pretty good.

$100 for family of 5.

We frequent the black cat and ended up next door for outdoor seating. Such a fun atmosphere!!!! Lobster roll is hands down the best on the Cape, as is the lobster chowder. Mussels were not good at all- do not order these. Had mussels in Chatham day before that put these to shame.

Great vibe- really feels like summer is in full swing here.

Walking distance from our hotel (Hyannis Harbor Hotel) - this place was great. Yummy food and a fun bar scene. They even had live music one night.
