I’m not sure I’m comfortable with all the servers treating me like their son, but nobody else in my group had a problem. We were there for breakfast, their professed specialty. Hard to beat. So many options, but the winner was the fawning and spoiling...More

We gave this restaurant one more try trying to relive our great experience of a few years ago. Unfortunately the restaurant didn't respond. Oh well lessons learned the hard way. The service was still outstanding and hasn't declined since the last visit. However the omolets...More

We decided to try Kathy's for dinner, after having visited for breakfast several times. Breakfast has been great! What a disappointment dinner was. I had the fish fry - so much batter and 2/4 pieces had barely any fish. The baked apples had a chemical...More

Overall good food. Ham should have been trimmed more (too much fat) and fried a little more. Service was efficient, but not very friendly to us. It seemed that the “regulars” got more attention.

This type of restaurant is a throwback when service was more important than the food. Open for more than 30 years, Kathy's is the kind of place that makes you feel at home. Even though I came to the diner 30 minutes before closing, the...More

Good place to eat if you are a fan of country food. Its a little on the bland side, but has a good price. Comparable to Cracker Barrel or Country Cookin'. Nothing spectacular or terrible with my visit.
