We will definitely be back. We had a party of 2 A and 1 C. We all shared the the veggie salad (yummy), an order of the macaroni and cheese (OMG yummy), and a medium sausage/pepperoni pizza (very good but the sauce is sweet). We brought home leftovers. Service was good and the decor was snazzy! A little pricer than... More

The food here is always delicious, especially the steak & lobster ravioli! The servers are very well informed on the menu and they're very attentive. Tables are a bit close together here so it can be quite noisy.

I've eaten here many times and always had a great meal. The entrees are quite interesting and the portions hearty. There are a lot of seafood options, which I like, and the quality of the seafood is excellent. It is a bit crowded and can be a little loud, but I like that it is not too stuffy.

I went here with my wife to try something new. My wife is a very picky eater. Their menu is very unique and limited. Don't expect to find your normal dinner club menu options here. The waitstaff was pushy and not customer service minded. Perhaps the rudeness comes from thinking they are better than they are? I would not recommend.

The restaurant is nice and clean. The meals were creative and very tasty. I am pleased they cater to those needing gluten free options. The beer prices were impressively low but were countered by the impressively high wine cost. The meal prices seem to be out of touch with the local economy but not high compared to what I am... More

While visiting, met friends for drinks and dinner. Overpriced, great for an anniversary dinner. Delicious steak. Found the service very slow and not impressive for the cuisine. No really family friendly.

We have never had a bad meal at "Kate's". The same quality, fresh food and layered tastes as the original restaurant but now with more room and the ability to enjoy upscale casual atmosphere. Excellent service and quiet enough to enjoy good conversation with guests. LaCrosse NEEDS "Kate's".

We were looking for a light lunch and found it, sort of. My wife had a turkey sandwich which had coleslaw on top along with a cranberry and orange relish on cranberry bread. It was a decent sized sandwich and she took part home. I had the chicken caesar wrap and devoured the whole thing (slowly of course). There were... More

The crab cakes are not cheap. $9 for lunch but sometimes it's worthy paying more if something is exceptional. Second best cakes, best were Barb Jeans in Jacksonville, Florida. I plan to come back and get them again.

I am from New Jersey and even though I am not Italian, I have frequented many Italian restaurants, pizza parlors, hoagie shops....So let me begin...The waiter was very professional and cool. I asked if the pasta was made on the premises, he told me that it was not. I asked if it comes in "Fresh" (refrigerated), he said no, it... More
