My wife and I have been to Germany several times. We love German food. When we walked into Zur Kate we felt as if we had walked into a restaurant in Germany. The decor is very typical of casual German restaurants. The menu is somewhat limited, but has several varieties of sausages, schnitzels, and rolls. Each meal comes with either... More

This little restaurant style is in a strip mall. It has a nice ambiance and we always enjoy the extra ambiance of the accordion player. The food is home-style so don't expect fancy. The four of us enjoyed the included rye bread, weiner schnitzel, sauerbraten, sausage plate, and rahm schnitzel. All were good. The spaetzle was only okay as I... More

Good German food and drinks, and price is right! If you like German food, don't miss it! This is a small simple restaurant; not fancy.

Since moving to town five months ago, we have tried out several restaurants in the area, but Zur Kate is by far our favorite. The food is always consistent, always lives up to expectations, from appetizers to entrees to desserts.. Have had several menu items now and it's all been great. Good selection of German beer. They have an accordion... More

When I lived in Germany, we would usually have our dinners out at the local gaust houses and Zur Kate reminded me slot of those good times. With a great schnitzel and spatzle dinner, good price,friendly service, and even an accordion player, I left a very satisfied customer.

This is the best German food I've had since a trip to Germany in 1989. The Schnitzel Cordon Blue was superb as was the German tap beer. We have been there many times in the past years and the service and hospitality is worth the return visit every time. The German music during dinner was also enjoyable. The Black Forest... More

we met our friends from Phoenix at this restaurant that we had dined at in previous years. We got there shortly after it opened because we dine early. After a leisurely 90 minute visit and meal where we were not hurried..we were surprised to see about 25 people out front waiting to get in to this quite small wonderful restaurant.

We had a coupon from the Coyote book for a complimentary dessert at a German restaurant. We went to Zur Kate by mistake, but they honored their competitor's coupon with a slice of their delicious apple strudel. By then, we had been treated to great German beers, tasty bratwurst and sauerkraut, schnitzel cordon bleu, a potato dumpling, savory fried potatoes,... More

I took my 83 year old German born and raised mother here for dinner on her birthday. I had really had high hopes based on all of the wonderful reviews this place has received. What a letdown. It's Dirty, cramped, the service is spotty, and the food was HORRIBLE! Please do yourself a favor and run from this place!!!!! Disgusting!!!
