Established since 1896
Originally a stop on the old stage line, The Cats Roadhouse served as a weigh station for horse-drawn lumber wagons on their way to San Jose, as well as a rowdy social club for local residents. At the time the road was first paved, around 1920, the Cats was one of the area’s most notorious speakeasies and bordellos. During the 40′s and 50′s The Cats building housed a realty office, gun shop and sporting goods store. The restaurant and tavern were re-established in 1967 and it is one of the last remaining Roadhouses in the United States.
A New Chapter
We are thrilled to announce that ChefCentury has acquired The Cats restaurant in Los Gatos.
The Cats is an iconic restaurant with a long history of serving top-notch BBQ dishes and live entertainment, and we are excited to continue this legacy. Starting May 5th, we will relaunch the restaurant and feature a menu that highlights past customer favorites as well as new dishes created by our talented ChefCentury chefs. Jalapeno Hush Puppies, smoked brisket, smoked beef ribs, smoked wagyu and house-created craft cocktails are just a few of the delicious items you can expect to enjoy at The Cats. In addition to our restaurant menu, we are also excited to offer catering services for celebrations, either on or off-site, and host special events, such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
