Really hit the spot!

Walked just a few blocks from our hotel to find this place and so glad we did. Had Cajun Chicken strips and they were great. Best part, not deep fried. She had grilled cheese and soup and said it was really good. Waitress was nice and worked hard. Lot of Milwaukee history in there, pics of... read more

Our first time to eat at Miss Katie's diner. We had the nights special, bbq ribs. Tangy sauce, fall off the bone tender, and cole slaw and hash browns which would rival any BBQ joint. The food was excellent, but the best part of our dining experience was our waitress, Angel. She puts her heart and soul into her job.... More

In Milwaukee & looking for a local favorite. Found Miss Katie's Diner. 3 of us ate there & loved it. A retro 50's diner that has been around quite a while. Biil Clinton ate there with German chancellor Merkal also Rachel Ray & a few other notables. Food tasted fantastic. It is near Marquette U. When you are in Milwaukee,... More

Go see Denise at 7am and have a wonderful breakfast. Specials of the day are delightful. Service is excellent. The Italian sausage omelet is quite a treat. Throwback to the old diner days but with really outstanding food. Excellent lunches. Try the eggplant strips. TO DIE FOR. Lots of street parking. Fun and extensive menu.

Visited Miss Katie's Diner for lunches with friends a few times recently. Haven't found any food I really like to try again. Everything is ok for simple lunches. Not impressive at all.

We chose Miss Katie's for lunch after exploring Marquette and Pabst Mansion. I had the salad with fruit, veggies, and tuna salad. The tuna salad was homemade and packed with fresh veggies. My lunch came with warm homemade Italian bread & Wisconsin butter. I think my son's meal was the table favorite starting with a Red Velvet malt and including... More

This place was recommended by the bed and breakfast we stayed at. The homemade hot potato chips are a must as an appetizer. The food we had was well prepared and delicious. The prices were reasonable for a sit down restaurant. We were visiting for the weekend and the waitress provided us with very helpful information for our stay in... More

Quaint mid-west diner, good food, nice service. Boasts visits from Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama. Sat at a table used for a commercial.

Have eaten here over the years when in town visiting my son at Marquette. Had breakfast at Katies today. Old time lunchnette feel with a bar attached. Breakfast was awesome!
