This place was a hidden gem that my friend showed me. The food was delicious and felt like it was made from a kitchen in Germany. On Saturdays they had an accordion player, which was fun. Every time I've gone the servers have been so kind and personable. The prices aren't very affordable as well!

Fairly authentic German Menu. Plenty of Schnitzels. Fairly authentic sides. I had the Saurbraten. The meat was lean and tender. The sides were just OK. The service was OK The ambiance, nothing that German or spectacular. All in all, average, nothing special at all.

We must have been to Zur Kate on an off night because it wasn't all that good. The service was great and our server was very friendly, but the atmosphere was lacking. The restaurant was dark and not very inviting. The meatballs were really greasy and the spatzle was over done and mushy. No appetizers, no salad, no soup, and... More

I started going to Zur- Kate over 10 years ago. The food is great with large portions. I have made many friends there. Music is played on Friday and Saturday nights. Some winter months Thursdays also.The owners and staff are friendly. Weekends have specials and everyday till 6 is happy hour.

My husband and I invited a few friends to join us for what we hoped would be a good German meal. We were not disappointed. The food was what I expected,(home fries are the best outside of Germany). Service was very friendly and we were fortunate that we picked an evening with live music. We have been back and plan... More

I was surprised at how authentic the food was. The sauerbraten was outstanding. I would have included a photo but I was too busy enjoying my meal. I've been to Zur Kate I Hamburg in the late 70s and this place replicates the original. Don't miss it if your in the Phoenix area.

I had the Sauerbraten and the sauce was amazing. I just could not get enough of it. My wife had the Smoked Pork which was great... More

Having served four years in the Airforce in Lahr- Schwarzwald, I have been privy to some great gasthofs throughout Baden Wurtemberg and Bayern. Since our return to North America in 1994 it has been a constant challenge to find a German restaurant/gasthof of the same food quality and ambiance. ...and after wintering in Mesa this past winter we were fortunate...

I have been waiting to go back to this place for over 20 years. I was pleasantly surprised that it has not changed. It is the same ole german place we went to in the 80's and 90's. The food is excellent, service and atmosphere you can't beat. If you want a little taste of Germany go here.
