Service was good and food was fresh and cooked as ordered. Atmosphere was a little loud. Got plenty of food for the moderate price.

Wanted to get a quick dinner before going to Proctors. This location is popular for those wanting a few beers from imported and domestic to craft. Its not a fine dining location but I call it pub food plus. Lively atmosphere and comfortable. If you want quiet romantic, this is not the place. Its all about good times and good... More

Katie's is a family favorite. The food is Irish pub fare, the beer is always cold. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. It is in walking distance to the local theater. We have been going here since it first opened.

Second time going to this restaurant, the first time we only had appetizers and couldn't really judge the food. This time we order dinner and it was really good. We ordered the Galway dip, the Reuben, the corned beef grill, and the shepherd's pie. Everybody raved about what they got and we all ended up trying each other's food. Not... More

The owners of Katie O'Byrnes wanted to take their dining experience to a higher level. They brought in chef Marty Quinn. It's obviously working out well. We have been visiting and dining here since it opened in 2010. Original menu had Irish standards - bangers & mashed, fish & chips, Guinness stew for example. Also American pub style sandwiches like... More

We have relocated to the area for a year now as part of the transition team for the Rivers Casino. Katies has been our favorite place to go. To start, the waitress noticed we were part of the casino by clothing. The first time there we were a group of 8. The owner welcomed us to the are and bought... More

The three of us equally enjoyed the fish sandwich, Irish stew, oriental chicken salad, Celtic haddock sandwich, fried pickles, diet soda, and water. Our waitress happily answered our questions and was attentive to our tables needs. We were completely satisfied and Katie's will be added to our top ten Meetup sites!
