How Katies ruined the last night of our summer vacation... We visited Katies for our "farewell to Ogunquit" dinner the last night of our summer vacation. While we arrived there right on time for our reservation...we were seated in the lounge area because they were not ready for us ...and where we were promptly forgotten (I think on purpose as... More

Katie's is in a converted home with seating in rooms and on the porch. Dishes are imaginative--watermelon and tomato salad, delightful macaroons in a delicious chocolate dipping sauce, lobster ravioli--and attractively prepared. Service I'd generally good but unfortunately varies from excellent to dreadful depending on whether the owner is present.

This restaurant was one of a kind. The lobster flowers were delicious as well as other items on the menu. The waitstaff and bartender were top-notch.

Pleasantly surprised to dine during a quiet week in Ogunquit. We were one of only two couples that evening. Both meals were excellent and as you can imagine we had full attention of the staff. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to dine there the next night. My wife had the "lobster flowers" that were a bit salty... More

We were there on a slow night but got the impression the service and attention would have been the same if the restaurant was full. Andy, the bartender, was knowledgeable about the specialty drinks and a pleasant conversationalist. Our waitress, Johanna, was friendly and patient when answering questions about menu items. My lobster flower was delicious. It was a newer... More

Late in October, the crowds thin in Ogunquit and staffing is always a challenge, but we are glad that you were able to have such a nice, relaxing dinner. The Lobster Flower is one of my favorites among the new items on the fall menu, too! More

We visited this restaurant after viewing a play at the Ogunquit Playhouse. The meal was superb, the staff outstanding and we will return when we visit the area again. I liked that the restaurant even uses local soap and lotion in the restrooms-Stonewall Kitchen items.

Thanks so much for writing! Many of our other guests also go to the wonderful productions at the Ogunquit Playhouse and Katie's is so close to the Playhouse without being on busy Route 1. We are proud to have Stonewall products in the restroom and we buy them from Spoiled Rotten, which stocks so many fine items! More

A wonderful new place my wife Merry and I decided to try this past Aug. The decor is blue from the walls to the vases w/ blue marbles in them to some blue tchotchkes (not tacky ones). The floor was a beautiful honey colored hard wood which was immaculate. Our waitress Joanne knew who we were from our 98 Provence... More

Thanks so much for your kind review! I got a chuckle from it. Yes, last winter we painted the walls blue (light blue for the interior walls and darker blue on the outer walls) and we think it is calming and relaxing, the perfect accompaniment to great food! Thanks for noticing!! More

People are important. The chefs and bartenders/servers are like family at Katie's. In fact every night, the chefs and front of the house sit down to a meal together just before we open to discuss the evening's menu and get feedback. Thank you for recognizing that they all play an important role in your enjoyment of Katie's! More

We appreciate your candid, kind comments. Yes, absolutely, we are not standard touristy fare at Katie's and, yes, we are basically an eclectic American restaurant. What we are trying to accomplish is to serve great food in a comfortable (but not "kitschy") atmosphere. From the comments in your review, it seems that we are succeeding!! More
