The atmosphere was unique, the food amazing, and the beer on tap is plentiful! The fries are dubbed “crack fries” and after one bite, it is easy to see why! Great place for a bite to eat!

Had a great time at HopCat. It has a great atmosphere and decor, good food and the beer selection is excellent. The only downside is that you have trouble finding some of the local beers once you get back home.
