It was nice but very expensive I can’t believe I paid 10$ for 2 prawns that were supposed to be king and they were not I had the crab plate and still felt hungry oysters were shriveled but the atmosphere was lovely

Noisy, cramped; waited 20 minutes for ordered drinks to arrive.
Only one waiter for front of house.
Food very ordinary -my husband had the 'Crab Boil' - said the crab was tasteless and ? fresh or frozen, the 2 small corn cobs and potatoes were also luke-warm.
I had soft tacos with popcorn chicken-dry and over cooked (chicken).

I thought the food was very poor. The crab boil was very disappointing as the sauce was not nice at all, it wasn’t really a garlic sauce it was more like oil mixed with herbs. The crab had like no meat in it and I thought the seafood was very average. I didn’t think much of the food at all and thought it was very overpriced for what you received. We even ordered soft drinks that were tiny for the price you paid. The toilets are really gross and weren’t very clean. The back of the restaurant was really dodgy and I felt like it needs a renovation. Although the service was great as the staff were very nice and friendly.

Service and drinks were good, but unfortunately the food was just average, the boiled crab was bland and other items were a bit overpriced for the quantity, like extra $5 for adding fries to the meal.

Very overrated, no value for money here. If you want great crabs with flavor and value for money, go to china town. Very disappointed 😔

As a diner from Maryland, they did good large crabs, though the sides left something to be desired. Great location and back seating area. Appreciated the Maryland flag at the front

The restaurant is quirky small but very comfortable. The service was amazing, our server was friendly and attentive. The best part was the food. Wow the crab was full of flavor and the potatoes, corn and spicy sausage complimented the flavor. I highly recommend the crab boil. If I could give you 10 stars I would . **

Our first time at Miss Katie’s we will definitely be back we had the fried green tomatoes, chicken wings and fried chicken with the mash potato. The fried chicken was just fantastic and the mash was probably the nicest I have had & had the homemade lemonade. We are already planning our next visit to try the crab next time. The staff were absolutely delightful and highly recommend
