If you have read my other reviews you know I love deli. Life goes beyond the Waffle House. Ask for the waiter I has. His name is Shon and his customer service is pleasant and always had a smile. Shon's mission was to see I had a great experience which I did. The coffee is SO good! I had the... More

This place only cares about sales. It's horribly over priced . I eat here a lot. I've had some of the worst dinning experiences in my life in this place. Slow seating recently. Slow service always attitude always. If I could give a less than zero on their service I would . Food is good but overpriced avoid this place... More

I go to Katz often. I enjoy an "eye opener" on my days off, so I usually sit at the bar and have a KY coffee to start (Bourbon/Coffee). Everything I've tried for Breakfast is fresh and well prepared. I love the chopped chicken livers for lunch! Good, solid deli with the bonus of a bar. Opened 24/7.

I absolutely love the fried pickles. This place is always fresh and good. I haven't tried the cheesecake shake but I will be there on Friday I love it

Excellent sandwiches. We arrived shortly after the lunch rush, so the place was cool and inviting. The menu was great. My husband had the classic Rueben and I had a half classic Scottish salmon on rye with a side of onion rings. Delicious!

We came for lunch and it wasn't too busy so no waiting. Table service, very pleasant staff. Extensive menu, including children's menu. I went to Katz's in New York some years ago and this one wasn't as good atmosphere and decor. Pastrami on Rye yummy.

Quite standard. Good thing is that it's open late and one can have food at any time. A bit pricy compared to similar restaurants

Katz deli is a busy,friendly,and large, I found the waitstaff knew the menu and answered all our questions. Their prices are a little bit high overall I think they are okay.

We went here after visiting the Museum of Fine Arts. There were 8 of us. Our waiter was attentive and the food came out in a timely fashion. The fried pickles were great as well as the reuben sandwich. However I wasn't too impressed with the potato salad. Others in the group liked their meals too. It's also a great... More
