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.

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.

Met a coworker here who was staying in the hotel next door. They said the food was pretty good. I had the shepherd's pie, which was very good. Only way to make it better would have been to use beef roast or stew meat instead of ground beef. Great flavor, very filling for the small looking presentation. Every meal that... More

My husband will be celebrating his 81st birthday in a few days. We wanted to do something special, so we drove to Perry to have dinner at David's Milwaukee Diner at the Hotel Pattee. He had Sheppard's Pie, and I had salmon. Both were delicious!

We stayed at the hotel and had dinner here. Staff was very nice. The owner came around to greet customers and ask how things were going. Drinks we ordered from the bar were perfect.

Whether you're staying at the Hotel Pattee or just visiting (and you should be staying!!), David's Milwaukee Diner is fabulous! Service is friendly, menu is creative, and food is well prepared. During a gal's group getaway in August we dined here for both dinner and breakfast, and each was delicious. Everyone in our group of 7 was happy with their... More
