Food was fresh. Nicely presented. My guest loved her choice. My chicken was salty

We eat at Catherine’s a lot. This was our first real disappointing meal. My wife’s sea bass, the special, was cold, and my filet was stringy and a bit tuff.

Good time. Valentines dinner. Pre-fix price. Love the BYO service. Susan is an excellent server.
Loud there and kind of packed in - but it’s still worth it.

Service was incredibly slow. We were seated and waited 10-15 minutes before anyone came over. The menu was miss leading that you split some of the courses for their Lovers Lane menu. Then there was a long lull before we got the main course. They apologized and sad our order went to another table. There are much better restaurants around, but at least we tried it once.

Catherine’s is always great.

Sunday brunch or a dinner, you know it will be good.

This is our favorite restaurant. We have been there numerous times for dinner.
This was our first Sunday Brunch. It was a Valentine Love Brunch and it was outstanding.
I have tried every entree on the menu and have never had a bad meal.

It was fine. We used a gift card that evidently you can't include a tip. So we paid tip on the credit card and the waitress didn't give us back our gift card with the balance left. We had to track her down... very annoying. Probably won't go back...

My husband and I love this restaurant! We haven’t been in awhile since we had our kids and it was the perfect spot for date night. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was spectacular! And it’s BYOB.
