My spouse and I were part of a large group (Milwaukee Section ASME) of about 40, dining at Miss Katie's as part of the April section meeting, which was preceded by a tour at UWM's Freshwater Institute not far from Walker's Point. The 40 of us were seated at two long tables with seating on both... read more

After touring Marquette University my daughter and I were starving do we stopped in here for lunch. Were immediately seated at a table and waitress took our drink order. Both of us had cheeseburgers with fries and chocolate shakes--typical diner food. The burgers were dry as a bone and we weren't asked how we wanted them prepared. I guess everyone... More

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.

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!!
