Most importantly, the food at Kate’s is much better than typical pub food. Our friend ordered the featured roast duck and declared it excellent!
My frustration is that we couldn’t make a reservation for our table of four. I called Saturday hoping to make a...Wednesday reservation, and the woman I spoke with assured me that if we arrived before 6:30, we’d have no problem being seated in the big room where the Irish music is played at 7:00. We arrived at 6:10, but were seated in the overflow room because all the tables were reserved for tour groups. But…some of those tables remained empty all evening because of no-shows.
Also, the hours on TripAdvisor may not be updated, so call before you go to be sure the bar and restaurant are open. They do have picnic tables outside with a very limited menu, but it’s not ideal for dining.
Donna, our server, was great and took great care of us. Give Kate’s a try—but call first!More
