Beware of 2 hour parking

We used Miss Katies sports shuttle to attend a recent event. When we returned we found a $25 Milwaukee parking ticket. Miss Katies is surrounded by street parting with a two hour limit so beware.

We used Miss Katies sports shuttle to attend a recent event. When we returned we found a $25 Milwaukee parking ticket. Miss Katies is surrounded by street parting with a two hour limit so beware. In regard to the food, Miss Katies ranks somewhere between average and good. Their food is fairly inexpensive. I think they do breakfast best.

I've been coming to Miss Katie's Diner for close to 10 years. It is by my place of work, so it is a great quick oasis to grab a bite and meet friends and colleagues. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner and my favorite is lunch. It is a diner so I base my rating on diner food. I've never... More

A friend and I went to Miss Katie's Diner for lunch recently. The place had a charming "old time diner" atmosphere and very friendly service. We both had the pork barbecue sandwich and cole slaw. It was very tasty and reasonably priced as well.

Ordered a simple cheese burger and fries. Bun was burnt, patty was char on the outside rare on the inside fries were over cooked. Cooks were in a hurry to carry on there conversation instead of paying attention to my food.yet they boast about miss oboma stopping by. All said and done the 12.00 dollar would have been off spending... More

I give it a 2. One for being open on New Year's Day and one for charm. We sat at the diner counter/bar. The bloody mary was cold and made from tomato juice. It was barely average in flavor. I've had far better "housemade" bloodys for much less than the $7 this one cost. I ordered the "famous" corned beef... More

We had a classic diner breakfast this past weekend. The pancakes are divine and the skillets delicious. The servers are so friendly and helpful as well. Highly recommend!

i had the corn beef hash griddle and my husband had the Miss Katie's griddle. Both were very hot and good. Not a fancy place. The servers are classic diner waitresses. It's kind of fun in that regard. Not a frou-frou place at all!!

A dying breed of restaurant. Classic decor & atmosphere in a setting left back in time. The food is great. It isn't a 5-star restaurant... it's an experience with great food at great prices. Very few places can match the value. If you are the adventurous type & like those obscure places that have character, this is a must visit... More

Your French toast will arrive, not with little porkies, but good-size Italian links that offer a zingy contrast to all the maple syrup that you like. Miss Katie’s is a bright, big-windowed place just off the freeway and at a corner of the Marquette University campus, so it’s a popular meeting place. You might see a President or First Lady...
