So, this is our hangout. We LOVE this place! Been going here since I was a kid, but moved to Manheim 5 yrs ago and spending more time there. The food is top-notch, fresh, reasonably priced, staff is warm and fun, owners are approachable, ambience is relaxing, yet fun. Music trivia is a HOOT! Gotta love Stan. Honestly, this is... More

We had a late lunch (1:30) on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant wasn't too crowded although the bar was pretty full. We were seated right away (we did have reservations), and our waitress was fairly attentive. Our orders were taken rather promptly, but then the wait began. It took a very long time to get our food (salads, soup, and... More

Stopped by on a Sunday evening. The place was busy, so reservations would have been a good idea, though they found a table for us. Dinner on Sunday is a superb value. All of our meals were very good, including seafood and nicely presented. Portions were decent, although the sides were a tad small. The atmosphere is distinctive, and fairly... More

Chose this one because of the ranking and description on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. An old railroad house hotel/restaurant and a 1920s theme made this a unique choice in the area. The place was also decorated for Christmas , which enhanced the appeal. We went in without a reservation, but it was only for 2, so we had a... More

Very nice ambience. Food was exceptionally good, with many different choices. Seafood choices were available. Soup of the day was very good.

Just happened upon this place and so glad that we did. Such a unique little out of the way place to eat. The decor and atmosphere is so neat. We had a late lunch and the place was just starting to pick up when we got there. Service was fast and very good. Food was very good. We will definitely... More

I stopped by here last night with a couple friends for dinner. At about 6pm there were some empty tables but these were quickly occupied. The restaurant has an outside dining area, a full service bar area, and a dining room. The location is on a back street near the railroad tracks in Manheim. The menu had a lot of... More

Nice little restaurant. We sat outside which was nice right next to the train tracks and a cute little train station. There were a million flies out but it's not the restaurants fault, it was a hot sunny day. Our dinner was delish and the service was really good. I'd recommend.

We recently ate dinner at the Cat's Meow. This was our second time there - the first was a year ago (both times we were in the area for the PA Ren Faire) - and this time around the kids specifically asked to go back. The menu has something for everyone - even picky teenage boys! (We are a family... More

The atmosphere is great. If you enjoy that type of music, it is very enjoyable. The food price is a little high, but the size of the portions is amazing. If you consider the size of the portion, the the price is very low.
