Dead. No personality.

I give this place 3 stars because I was starving and the pancakes were good. Our waitress was terribly bored. People were actually irritated we showed up. I'm sorry is this a restaurant?

When we visited the waitress had an attitude about serving us. We ordered breakfast food- an omelet and biscuits and gravy. It took 30 minutes to get good despite there only being 5 tables with people. Everyone waited a long time to get their food. May have been a bad day, or someone may have quit but our waitress was...

This restaurant does a better breakfast menu than lunch. Not especially excited about bread drenched in gravy and processed turkey.

Had breakfast at Kathy's and was waited on by Kathy herself. She is a very funny and entertaining person, she loves life and loves to work (seemingly). She is about to open a new addition to the restaurant that will feature more entertainment, such as WVU Game day (I am a Marshall Fan), and will have slots. I thought the... More

The food was good and reasonably priced and our server was very nice. However, it wasn't the decor that drew us - it's very old and in need of sprucing. I suspect this restaurant is where the 'locals meet'. The restaurant is on a side street and we found it by accident.

Older establishment. Took forever to get our orders (3 of us), so we had to gobble and RUN to our 1pm tour at the Lunatic Asylum close by.

This place is across the river from the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and is easy to walk to, as there is a little pedestrian bridge to cross over. The food and service were great, however the place was dark and a little run down looking. It didn't stop us from enjoying our meal though.

I guess this isn't our type of restaurant. We don't like fried food or servers with an attitude. Everyone in the place knew each other, so we felt very uncomfortable being there. What is really strange though, there is no view of the river at all.
