The food quality and presentation is very good. Service is friendly. They improved the menu from the previous year, along with the bloody mary mix. Much better this year. For the last two Brr Rides, we have just eaten here. Jay the owner, may stop by and chat.

My husband and I enjoyed drinks, the mushroom appetizer and the burger--all wonderful. Honestly one of the best burgers we have had in a long time. Great service at the bar and as always a check in and smile from the owner, Jay.

The food was outstanding. When I saw the buffet it was clear that ingredients were of high quality and everything was very fresh. Tasting the food proved it - great job on the shrimp cocktail, prime rib, salmon, salad, and vegetables. It is so difficult to find good greens for salad in the middle of winter. The green beans were... More

With a railroad theme and lots of original art, this restaurant (in the Hotel Patee) has excellent food and a great atmosphere. The grilled salmon was moist and the Bearnaise sauce on the asparagus was delicious.

The staff was great. Never felt like we were part of a large group. I recommend the diner and the Hotel Pattee as a wonderful experience.

inner and Breakfast at David’s Milwaukee Diner: We stopped at the Hotel Pattee due to having car problems. We ate dinner, stayed at the hotel and then had breakfast before heading to the mechanic shop. The dinner was very good. They have recently changed their menu and only offer 2 varieties of steaks and the prime rib Friday special. There... More

First gotta mention the loaded bloody Mary. Awesome. Great coffee and wonderful atmosphere. Early 20s rail diner look and feel. Frank Sinatra playing while sipping on the bloody Mary. My wife ordered bettys Benedict. I ordered Perry skillet. Both very good. Of course sitting across the table from my beautiful wife. What a great way to start the day.
