We live the wings here. B52's for my wife and Teriyaki for me. .59 cent wings on Tuesday and Thursday. We love the remodeled I side and the addition of the outside seating area. Nice casual place to meet friends for a beer and food.

Stopped for a quick lunch. The seafood platter had a weird texture. While I will preface I did not get sick, the flounder had a sour taste and smell which I gave up on after a few bites. When asked, I was told "it was thawed out yesterday." The real kicker was when I was able to see someone in... More

My wife and I really enjoy our trips to Katy's. The food is varied, good, and worth the cost. We usually get one of their seafood offerings. On this visit we had a fried shrimp and flounder plate with fries and slaw. Overall it was really good except for the slaw which I rank as ok. The server was friendly,... More

My wife, our adult daughter, and I stopped in on Thursday, 7/28/16 for dinner; our first & LAST TIME. My daughter ordered the "Sandpiper Street" sandwich which was Grilled Chicken, Pineapple, Asian Sweet Sauce & Mozzarella on a Kaiser Roll. She had only a couple of bites when she discovered a DISGUSTING HAIR IN HER FOOD. We informed our server,... More

Katy's has changed a couple of times over the years. Current décor is pure sports bar/pub and would be great for catching a game. New outdoor areas nice given what they have to work with. Food is solid, burgers are well worth the price. Wings sauces are also very good and there are many to choose from. The daily specials... More

Katy's offers a $3.00 burger that is hand made, all day. Katy's offers $1.00 tacos on Wednesdays 3-5 pm. The rest of the menu is good with lots of sandwiches, salads and wings. They run specials everyday and the food is well prepared and waitstaff is very nice. Check out their new outdoor bar space. Although they are right on... More

This place is disgusting. I'm surprised whoever owns this hell hole hasn't done anything to fix the food yet- clearly no one cares except for a few of the bartenders who are polite and seem to do the best they can. Whoever is in charge of the food should be ashamed. I have been several times and every time the... More

Have gone here for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was better. Very informal dining atmosphere, but the waitresses were very attentive. Both times our order was messed up at breakfast, but both times they took care of it quickly.
