Ate here both mornings of our weekend get away. Great diner food, great service, sort of a step back in time.

Miss Katie's has been a local favorite for many years, but those years were apparently hard ones. A Sunday visit for three of us at 1:30 was very disappointing. The restaurant's once shining chrome and 50's charm is now looking like a beat up old greasy spoon, 10 years past a needed restoration. What was worse was the food. Not... More

Stopped in with our elderly parents after a trip to the domes. Such a fun place, The staff was fabulous, the food was great. We had burgers and fries that were awesome and the chocolate malks were so gooood! Cocktails available, low key, quick service, price reasonable. Enjoy the old time diner experience.

We had only poor food and service during our visit. My wife's food was served cold, not only her entrée, but the soup as well. My fish-n-chips was probably one of the worst "fish-n-chips I've ever been served. On top of all that, the waitress brought me another couple's bill (for more money of course). Miss Katie's Diner is a... More

We occasionally drive up from the south side to eat at this "famous" diner. We've never been disappointed with the amazing fish fry. Huge portion, so delicious it almost melts in your mouth! The home-made potato chips are so good. Philly steak sandwich and Reuben also good - and large. The bar feels like a step back in time to... More

Great local diner with the standard staples. Nothing crazy or off the wall, just solid favorites for this kind of establishment. I had the cheese omelette which was outstanding and delicious - wish I could eat that every day!

A popular local place with that nostalgic decor of a diner that sets it apart. Homemade breakfast dishes that let you know it's not from a can. I thought the wait staff was attentive and efficient and friendly although they can seem busy going from table to table, but even humorous if there's a moment to converse. Definitely a place...

Miss Katie's is a hidden gem on the edge of Marquette's campus. A wide array of appetizers, great drinks, and good entrees. The cheese curds are fantastic and the ribs/shrimp really stand out. Service is top notch as well. This location is popular for visiting politicos too. Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Helmut Kohl have all... More

There is a theme here...Miss Katie's DIner is a diner, not unlike the look of those who are familiar with Ed Debevic's. Since I was on my way out of town, I thought to eat at Miss Katie's since it was near the Marquette campus and I could wave my "so long" when I finished breakfast. I ordered the eggs... More

This is an old time diner, since we were there for brunch we indulged in the best Bloody Mary's I've had in a long time. My brunch was eggs Benedict and the hollandaise was made fresh. Everything was cooked perfectly.
