Cate's is a great place for family and friends to enjoy a wonderful meal. Friendly folks at the bar make for great conversations. As a regular customer for the past 10 years, I've noticed the food and service is consistently excellent. A great time here!

Food was great, and fast which gave us time to get to another event we had planned. Waitress was Alyssa, she was very friendly and helpful. We usually order pizza from here on our annual trip to this area.

Caesar, garden, Greek, but call them because they sometimes have specials which include salads. You can't go wrong with their food...super fresh ingredients, good portions and prices.
