We came for breakfast and to be honest it was just very average food. We love dinners and this place has a lot of history so I give it 3 stars for that. The staff was rude and not very welcoming and the food nothing to really want you to go out of your way to come back to visit.

My friend and I chose Miss Katie's as our first "activity" in Milwaukee because we liked the name and decided if it was good enough for Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Donald Trump, it was good enough for us. The food was typical diner fare, served up with a lot of personality. We had a fabulous server who happily churned... More

On our from Summerfest we decided to stop in for breakfast.I love diners so I thought we give this place a try. This place has been around for 30 + years. Decor tries to give that old vibe. Sat at the counter in he back room and ordered:corn beef hash special, eggs Benedict and the western omellete. 10 minutes later... More

Doors open at 7am and you can count on a group of regulars waiting outside almost every morning. Love love love Denise. Best server with a great sense of humor. They can custom just about... More

We popped in for a quick breakfast, ahead of a morning meetings by nearby. The staff were friendly, the omelettes were fresh and good and the coffee refills kept coming.

Food was awesome! Wish I was hungover because theyre bloody marys looked very good too. The Steak tenderloin sandwich and strawberry milkshakes were great. Waitress seemed a bit testy but for the most part, I'd definitely go back

It is my first night in the US and what a way to welcome me. Friendly staff who were super attentive and wonderful food. The apertizer platter and wings filled 3 people. Massive serves. Wings gad a great chilli kick. The place had a very fun vibe. Well worth a visit.

I love Miss Katie's Diner! I travel all the way from Wisconsin Rapids just to go there. They have the best food. Their oatmeal is so good, they make it totally different than any place I have ever been. All their food is top notch from their burgers to their homemade chips! We had the most wonderful waitress! Her name... More

Miss Katie's is a classic old time diner. The wait staff still wears uniforms, the menu is old school (chili, eggs, sandwiches, etc) and the prices are reasonable. The homemade Italian sausage is great especially when served with an omelet and Italian toast. They have a bar with a shuffleboard game and period chairs. It's old school all the way.... More

We had a good dinner here. The decor is very kitchy-cool. We sat at the bar. Service was very good. We ordered the rib dinner and the ribeye special. The bbq sauce they use is not overly sweet which I liked. The ribs could have been a bit more tender, but were still good. My husband said the steak was... More
