Having been here in the recent past and quite pleased, our stop here on a Thursday early afternoon is either an anomaly or a sign of impending doom. When the best thing you can say about food and service for three is that the malt was delicious, the iced tea was dark and flavorful, and the buns on the three... More

Yes, it's a kitchy diner that boasts its celebrity visitors of various political persuasions, but we thoroughly enjoyed it: both the food and the ambiance. We had a waitress who was a hoot (and also very good at what she does) that added to our fun visit. We stopped there for lunch on the way up to Door County and... More

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

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.
