“Classic diner - a Milwaukee landmark”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Family friendly and great diner food. This is the kind of place your kids will remember for years to come (I used to go here with my grandparents and still love it)!

Craving a real, homemade vanilla malt? Miss katie's is the place for you! Old school decor and the food is generaly OK but for malts, Miss Katie's has that nailed down!

“Historic place with great food.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Miss Katie's Diner has been the host of Presidential visits, celebrity meals and now I know why. The food, coffee, everything was worth the stop on our weekend in Milwaukee. If you have a chance don't pass up your chance to have breakfast here.

“Greasy Spoon with a capital 'G'”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

MIss Katie's is a Milwaukee institution, but I'm afraid its a pretty nasty experience. The diner itself is certainly authentic (i.e. in need of an overhaul) but the food is greasy sub-par stuff. If you love grease and weak diner-coffee, this might be the place for you.

Horrible atmosphere and depressing location. Steer clear!

“Best home made potatoe chips”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

I do not stop atMiss Katie's very often, but when I do I always get the house-made potatoe chips. They are delicious and come with this great dipping sauce. I had them with the tuna melt. It was delicious. Miss Katie's is a typical old-style diner. Not the best food in the city but a good choice by Marquette.
