The food is decent but the service is ALWAYS terrible, I will not go back. I do not know the name of the waitress but she is the obese one. Nothing against that I just don't know her name. I always get her as my waitress and she always takes a long time, 10 minutes,.. to even greet the table.... More

The food was delicious and service was good. We had bacon cheeseburgers with fries and shakes. The shakes were so big that even though we decided to split them, we all ended up with a full glass of milkshake. Go early for lunch as it fills up fast & there is limited parking.

Went there for a lunch meeting for the first time in 10+ years. I didn't miss anything in those 10 years. We beat the lunch rush but still took 15 minutes to get order in. I ordered bacon cheeseburger and fries. Burger was very dry but the bun was dryer. Fries were decent but nothing great. Others in party had... More

Working nearby, I've been here many times. Service is very efficient and quick. The Cajun Chicken salad is my new "go-to" choice, formerly I chose the Patty Melt. The chicken portions are very large so you always have some to take home. My friend ordered it not Cajun and the portion seemed a bit smaller but still generous. One word... More

Ate here both mornings of our weekend get away. Great diner food, great service, sort of a step back in time.

Miss Katie's has been a local favorite for many years, but those years were apparently hard ones. A Sunday visit for three of us at 1:30 was very disappointing. The restaurant's once shining chrome and 50's charm is now looking like a beat up old greasy spoon, 10 years past a needed restoration. What was worse was the food. Not... More

Stopped in with our elderly parents after a trip to the domes. Such a fun place, The staff was fabulous, the food was great. We had burgers and fries that were awesome and the chocolate malks were so gooood! Cocktails available, low key, quick service, price reasonable. Enjoy the old time diner experience.

We had only poor food and service during our visit. My wife's food was served cold, not only her entrée, but the soup as well. My fish-n-chips was probably one of the worst "fish-n-chips I've ever been served. On top of all that, the waitress brought me another couple's bill (for more money of course). Miss Katie's Diner is a... More

We occasionally drive up from the south side to eat at this "famous" diner. We've never been disappointed with the amazing fish fry. Huge portion, so delicious it almost melts in your mouth! The home-made potato chips are so good. Philly steak sandwich and Reuben also good - and large. The bar feels like a step back in time to... More

Great local diner with the standard staples. Nothing crazy or off the wall, just solid favorites for this kind of establishment. I had the cheese omelette which was outstanding and delicious - wish I could eat that every day!
