While visiting Bolton Landing, we opted to have lunch at Cate's. Although we had a party of eight, the staff quickly adapted the tables for us. Despite it being busy and the size of our party, the service was quick and vert efficient. All our meals were served together and as ordered. Nice salads, a great pastrami sandwich with some...

Very enjoyable meal outside under the awning. Diverse menu and reasonable priced for the area. Waitress was very friendly and made you feel comfortable and unrushed, even though it was very busy.

We heard from a few local folks to go and try Cate's, and ended up having dinner here after eating at a few other great local places. Cate's was hands-down the best restaurant LG has to offer. Coming from two restaurant snobs, both my wife and myself were thoroughly impressed. Not only good portion sizes, but the food is absolutely... More

If you like to eat on cheap green plastic patio furniture with everything tasting like Prego sauce, then this is the place for you! The only positive thing I can say about this place is the cute street appeal. That's probably why it's always packed. Other then the appealing outdoor seating-I would stay away from this place.

While vacationing in Lake George, we had dinner at Cate's. We thought the food was very tasty. And our waitress was great. It's a great casual spot in Bolton Landing. Good place to go either with or without children. Didn't try the pizza, but it looked and smelled delicious.

My husband and I have been vacationing in Lake George for 20 years, Cates has become a favorite on our list of places to eat. This year it was for lunch. It was late around 2 so the restaurant was not crowded. We were looking forward to the warm mozzarella and tomato crostini; great presentation but the tomatoes were blah.... More

This restaurant is in the quaint town of Bolton on their main street. The restaurant is quaint in its own right, with old pictures of Lake George on the walls. We ate on the patio, which is covered from the sun. The food is good comfort Italian food and the atmosphere delightful.
