This is a convenient location right off of interstate I-90 at the Kingsville, Ohio Exit. The food is wonderful and service is fast. The Beer Battered fried Cod is always outstanding! This is a no frills establishment that feel like you walked into the 1970's décor. They do a bang up business there and ALWAYS have outstanding service. This visit... More

Stopped in today and waited 40 minutes for food that was uneatable. Left a one cent tip and will never return. Waitress also had a bad attitude.

I wanted address the unfortunate experience that you had. First let me apologize for the less than satisfactory meal that you had. It is always our intent to do a good job and create a return experience for every customer and we obviously failed, and for that I am sorry. I did interview the entire staff to isolate the problem...

Just an old-fashioned diner with traditional diner food plus! Have stopped twice now when making the drive from Cleveland to Rochester and I am going to make it a habit. The food is great, the service is excellent, the place is clean and cozy. My daughter and I came with baby, and our eyes were too big for our stomachs.... More

We had a friend that has eaten here and suggested we try it if we are out that way. I'm so glad we did! Even on a Sat. night, it was nice that we didn't have to wait, but busy enough to see that alot of locals were dining there that night. I was so happy to see Clams on... More

I've eaten at Kay's place for many years, there was a period where the food quality started to decline and I chose not to eat there any more. After a 5 year break I decided I would give them another try. To my surprise things improved, my go to meal is on Fridays when they have beer battered cod available.... More

This is a simple family owned restaurant that is serving up good old fashioned home cooking. Nothing fancy. Lots of real good well prepared food. The service was excellent. If I am in the area again I would for sure stop there.

Had some trouble finding what looked like a good place to stop after leaving Erie PA and heading west toward Toledo. Then we came upon a truck stop and just across the road was a little cafe called "Kay's Place". We decided to give it a try. We were really glad we did. The breakfast was great, the service even...
