When people ask me why I love this place, most are surprised when I answer, “Because it’s a total hole-in-the-wall!” But I mean that in a very complimentary way. The Cat’s Eye is a bar - plain and simple. The location (right on Thames Street, overlooking the harbor) is great, they have live music every day, and there’s a small... More

We came to Fells Point specifically to check out the Cat's Eye Pub. Small with original wood and interesting decor it reminded us of a pub in the Isle of Wight. It's a casual, be yourself kind of place where everyone is friendly...the bartender even shook my hand introduced himself. The band is right there. Listen, dance and meet new... More

Our group of 14 hung out here for New Year's Eve 2017. The band was an excellent Blues group (Ruben Montoya) and they did a heck of great job on La Grange by ZZ Top and several other songs. The pub is very nice for an Irish style pub and we all had a great time with the music and... More

We went here for after dinner cocktails and stumbled into a live 4 piece band that really got the crowd going. I would go here again just to examine all the decor on the walls. So much to look at!

I love this place! I've enjoyed it on a quiet night in the middle of the week or at full capacity on a busy Saturday night. The bartenders are great, the beer selection is pretty good, and the atmosphere is perfect for relaxing in your blue jeans and white t-shirt. And the music! I've mostly experienced jazz and hard blues... More

Stopped by for a drink during the Fells Point Festival. Very good jazz band playing. It is a very small place. Took a long time to get a drink though.

I opened the door around 7 on a Friday. The place was packed and the band sounded amazing. Everyone seemed to know each other. As I was going to walk out, an elder man took my arm and said "Oh Hun, you're not from around here, get in here and have a drink. You'll this band!" He was right I... More

Great local bar with a lot of "history"! Very cold beer and great bartenders. We stopped in for drinks before our reservations at Thames Oyster House.
