Cat City Grill Didn't Wow

FWJoey and I checked out Cat City Grill last weekend with TXJohn and TXBrit. Our dining experience was fine, but nothing to rave about. We started with the Lobster Bites ($12) which just tasted like something fried. The remoulade sauce was really good, but that was the highlight of the dish. For the price, I expected the lobster portion of the dish to steal the show and it didn't.

Next, I had the Mimosa Shrimp and Scallops ($24). The shrimp and scallops were good but the dish was a little bland. The bok choy and asparagus were surprisingly nice with the mild sauce. FWJoey tried the chicken fried rack of lamb ($25) and it was okay, but it tasted like a "chicken fried something with gravy on it." The whipped potatoes that were served with the rack of lamb were the tastiest part of the dish.

On a previous lunch visit, I tried the quiche with the layered spinach salad ($12). The quiche was a generous serving and it was good. The spinach salad had some tasty components such as mandarin oranges, dried cherries, bacon, gorgonzola crumbles and a plum vinaigrette, but it didn't impress me as much as I expected it to.

Overall, Cat City Grill is okay, but it doesn't have a "Wow" factor.

We went for dinner and were very underwhelmed. I tried it again for lunch and was wholly impressed. Have you been back?
Yes, we went back for dinner another time and I have been at lunch. Each visit has been okay, but nothing spectacular. I don't feel like it is a good "bang for the buck."
