We were vacationing in the area and wanted to enjoy one nice dinner out. We chose Carr's based on the reviews we had read and the inviting atmosphere. The hostesses were very nice and accommodating (my daughter wanted to sit outside and they right away got a table cleaned so we could and didn't have to wait). The food was... More

Worth the wait! Delicious pizza, pasta and Italian specialties. Not too pricey. My chicken parm hero was outstanding. Tomato basil soup one of the best I have ever had!

They do a great job of making you feel welcome from the moment you check in. Nice atmosphere on the patio and excellent service by the staff. We were checked on frequently and drinks were always filled. We began with the mozzarella sticks. Standard fare. Nothing special, but our kids favorite. Heavy on the breading but cooked to perfection with... More

Another fabulous evening at Cate's. The other Bolton Landing dining establishments try hard, but Cate's is the tops when it comes to food & service!

Great place to bring the entire family. Excellent selection of food. From pizza to seafood. I didn't like the selection of salads and made one just to my liking. Now that's service. Looking forward to my next visit

I will say the food is not awful but certainly not worth the price they are charging. A plate of penne with chicken in pesto is $18.00!! And believe me it's not THAT good!! The only reason why they do good business is because they are the only Italian restaurant in Bolton. If another Italian restaurant opened in Bolton they'd... More

Nice Italian restaurant, good service, moderate pricing. Large portions, maybe slightly expensive, but no complaints.

We were there years ago and loved it. This year, server was rude and unaccommodating. Food was subpar and lukewarm.

Cates food is ok. But so overpriced and not worth it in my opinion. Anyone that has eaten at a real Italian restaurant knows that Cates is not that great. Penne with pesto and chicken goes for $18.00. It's outrageous. Any of the other restaurants in Bolton that serve an Italian dish or two is better than Cates and is... More
