We came in around lunchtime and ordered breakfast. Our server ( I can’t remember her name but she was and a smallish older woman ) greeted up promptly and kept the coffee flowing . I had the corned beef hash with eggs and home fries...More

Food and service were both great. We came with a party of seven and had no trouble being seated at a fairly busy time, which was nice.. There were a couple special requests on how we wanted the food prepared. Our excellent waitress wrote them...More

We went here for breakfast with our daughter and grand kids, who are picky eaters, That was half right. Everybody is greeted like regulars, which it seemed like we were the only strangers. because everybody seemed to know everybody else. Our server came immediately with...More

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 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.

I asked today after having a wonderful breakfast and they said they were sorry, but at this time they do not have anything that is gluten free.
