Service was poor. Server was miserable and unapologetic when my crush didn’t taste like much of anything. My meal was all one texture-soft. Potatoes soft and the English muffin soggy.

I have eaten here many times since the 79’s, The food is usually good. However, tonight I was a little disappointed. School is out for summer and so must be the chef. I had crab bisque to start and it was only fair. I ordered...the crab cake sandwich which was broiled and had no filler. However, it was a little bland. Old Bay would have added some flavor. The waitstaff is usually comprised of students and my waitress must have been fairly new. I never got a much needed refill for my drink and it took a long time to get the bill. In the past, the food has been more flavorful. The specials are usually good and so are the desserts. The beer soup is very good. In general a good place to grab a bite and a brew, for students old and new. A well-established mainstay on Main Street.More

We usually go to Iron Hill but thought it would be nice to try Kate’s. Dry, completely overcooked hamburgers on stale rolls, inattentive service. Next time will stick with a sure thing.

My meals are always perfectly prepared and served - and they make sure everything is great! Everyone is well-trained and professional, yet personable, courteous and friendly. The menu has something for everyone, even gluten free options, and there ks a wide variety of beer and...cocktails, which are always served with a smile! Through all the Main Street road work, they have persevered and maintained a high standard, friendly disposition, and shown a real esprit de corps! Lately they added cauliflower-crust flatbread that is served on a slab of wood - it is really wonderful and a must-have! Also, the new steak sandwich with horseradish aioli sauce is an actual steak - the arugula makes it! Great job guys and gals!More

Ate there with the family for a lunch. The waiter was attentive and the food was pretty good. Would recommend for a quick bite.

I cannot thank her and the the staff enough for setting up and executing...the event flawlessly each year. The staff was awesome. The food was good and the atmosphere was perfect. I thank you for your efforts.More

Klondike Kate's has been around for ever. I first visited KK's when I was a college student, and I finally returned as a family man and father of two boys. We came because they offer a kids eat free deal on Wednesday night, which included...free face painting and balloon animals. There are about 6 options for kids (free meal with the purchase of an adult meal). It comes with a junior entree, side, and drink. My wife ordered a salmon salad. I ordered a small plate of loaded nachos that included chopped up chicken fingers, fries, and a load of other ingredients. I should not have ordered this, as it's more for sharing and I couldn't finish half of it. Rather, my recollection of KK's from my younger days included tasty jumbo buffalo wings. I should have gone this route, but there's always next Wednesday. Our check for a family of four ended up being $34. Not bad. They also brought out drinks in a nice KK's plastic tumbler. I wanted to take it home with me, so I asked the server if it was okay to do so (my wife insisted that I ask). The server said sure and went into the kitchen to get me a new one. She came back with 4.More

We walked here from our hotel for dinner. The fried calamari appetizer was delicious as was the rest of our meal. The noise level, however was very high as the place was completely full. Not a place to come if you are looking for a...relaxing dinner.More

I can’t believe we’ve never been here! Everything was great! Food, atmosphere, service, beers and the game was on too. Parking wasn’t bad but it was before school started. Good choice on Main Street.

Spent night in local hotel and was looking for an option other than hotel breakfast. Ended up at Kate's for brunch. Good choice. Cinnamon bun basket appetizer was a fun, sweet start. We had quesadillas and scrambled sausage (eggs). Portions good. Prices fair. Nice, relaxing...brunch out on deck. There was also a musician playing inside that we would have enjoyed if it weren't such a gorgeous morning to eat outside. Will returnMore

Parking behind restaurant there maybe a small parking fee, or go down the street to strip stores, plenty of parking there, and it is free. Great place to hangout with your friends, kids, and the food is good too!
