  • "Very impressed on getting our group seated we had made reservAtions for 1:30 but arrived at noon and we were seated within 5 mins"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food is great and there's more than you can eat. I would suggest if you get the two inch pork chop that you share it and just get an extra side dish"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Patti's for our 5th anniversary meal and they did not disappoint! Best pork chop I have ever eaten! And the homemade flower pot bread was amazing (they actually cook the bread in a small clay flower pot)! The interior of the restaurant fits the theme of an 1880's establishment with old tools/equipment and even waitresses dressed in appropriate attire. It is a somewhat romantic scenery, but not really a place to go for a private meal as you will more than likely find yourself right next to another table. It is also very pricey, but great for special occasions and for large groups if you do not mind the high price. Overall, it was a good experience and a great meal!"

  • "4 men who had played golf all day and we're very hungry. We arrived 1 hour before our reservation time and we're able to be seated immediately. Good service"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "This is their speciality and they're very delish! Their pie has crazy high meringue is more of a novelty or at least I won't eat 6 inches of it! It is tasty and Marshmellow-like, which is a little different taste. Very friendly and great service! We'll be back, overall great experience."

  • "Patti's is great. Not only are the pork chops fabulous, don't deny yourself one of their steaks. They are so good you don't need steak sauce ."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This was my second dining experience at Patti's. This time I drove an hour out of our way home to introduce a friend to Patti's. The only disappointment I had was the amount of time it took for us to receive our beverages from the time that we were seated. It was a full 20 minutes from the time our drink order was taken to the time it was actually served. The restaurant was not nearly as busy as it had been the first time I had been there. Otherwise delivery of our salads and meals was very timely. My guest stated the meal was more than worth the hour drive out of our way home and that she would be bringing her family."

  • "We hadn't eaten here in 12 years since we moved away. It was high on my must-do list when we came for a visit - and it was better than I remembered! I don't care for pork chops much but I just remembered loving them. They are so amazing! But the pies may have been even better. All I can say is "Come hungry!""

  • "Been to Patti's several times over the years. A legacy in this little resort town. Kid friendly a garden outside and a "a bit too kid friendly" gift shop, in the restaurant. I've eaten the famous pork offering on previous visits and liked it. This time I found it too salty. Can't recommend it after this experience. It could have been better if it was possible to order a beer with it but this is a dry county so no alcoholic beverages of any kind in this establishment. Baked potato was fine. Broccoli undercooked. Salad a bit wilted. No favorable comments from the other three diners with other dishes. If you want a better restaurant, drive up to Paducah, about 20-30 minutes up I-24. For a place to take the kids, this could be fine."

  • "Vacationing in area? Must go here! Had a large group. Kabobs and pork chops soooo tender. Had a large group. Pasta meals just ok. Dry county. They allow you to bring your own wine. (Wish we would have known) Staff was wonderful!! A little expensive so make it your special night out!"

  • "The food was fantastic, as was the service. A special place for special times."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant for celebrating that special occasion. The food was very good-especially the spinach salad. We have been going there for many years. I can tell some changes from the original owners. The flower pot bread doesn't quite taste the same as it used to. It tastes more like a store bought rather than homemade. We ordered 3 various desserts-chess pie, apple pie, and boo boo pie. The portions used to be huge. Now the price is still the same ($7.95), but the serving is very small and not the "special" dessert that I remember. The pork chop is still incredible and will be more than 1 person can eat. Not really a restaurant for small children. It does have a kids menu, but it is a long dining experience."

  • "after hearing about Patti's through friends and from church groups that have been there, finally made reservations and ate there. Was not sure what to expect. Meal was outstanding with excellent service. Will stop again and try some of the other choices on the menu."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "If you want great food, smiling faces with genuine friendliness, and a unique dining experience, you won't want to pass up a meal at Pattis. And definitely leave room for dessert! Worth the drive, worth the wait, worth the cost!! , and yes, even worth the extra calories for PIE!!!"

  • "Ambience may be a bit hooky but the food is legitimately good. Service is efficient and polite."

  • "Pattis doesn't disappoint. Big crowd on Sat nite of Fancy Farm. Some delay in being seated for our resv. Service outstanding. Food timely and good."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Patti's 1880's Settlement. The food was delicious. The ambience was peaceful and welcoming. The staff in the restaurant was quite friendly. We only had one complaint, and that involved two of the women in one of the stores. It was the store where the large Nativity Scene was, as well as the movie memorabilia. We were in there on a Saturday afternoon around 5:00. The women did not smile much or seem like they wanted to be at work. When my husband returned to the store after realizing he left his To Go cup in there and inquired about it, they were not apologetic about having thrown the cup away. They were quite unfriendly. Otherwise, everything was perfect."

  • "We have been going to Patti's for 30 years. Great food and great service. The spinach salad is a must have!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We went to Patti's for our 14th anniversary. Bonnie, our hostess, was friendly and funny. Sarah, our waitress, was quick, thorough, and kind. Even though she got three tables at pretty much the same time, we never had to wait for refills and the food was delicious and came quickly. The servers there seem to really help each over out rather than avoid each other. It was a great experience and helped make our anniversary a special day for us. We will be back when visiting the area!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Visited Patti's over 20 years ago and was so excited to go back, but sadly we were disappointed in the food. It was not like we remembered. The pork chops were way too salty and the bread was doughy on the inside. Oh well. A lot can change in 20 years. Probably will not return."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "After a very pleasant experience at Pattis our first time, we again drove one hour for dinner from Clarksville, TN. Our server was very good at refilling drinks but everything that was brought to the table was rudely placed in front of us, bordering on being slammed down. It wasn't until we mentioned to our previous server that she had also forgotten our appetizer that we received any type of actual hospitality as she came to apologize. I can not complain about the quality of the food at all but the service this time was definitely subpar."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We had the greatest experience at Patti's. The food was fantastic, servers were very helpful & friendly & we just love the atmosphere."

  • "My husband and I found this restaurant by accident while on vacation. It is always busy and reservations recommended. We've tried to dine here in the past but had to cancel last minute. We finally made it and it was well worth it. The food was very good and our waitress was wonderful. It has a themed decor but it doesn't detract from the experience. Will definitely go again."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "My husband and I always have a good time when eating at Patti's. It was unusually busy Tuesday night, so we weren't seated until 30 minutes after our reserved time and the crowd we were seated next to were too loud, but we still enjoyed ourselves and the food was wonderful."

  • "This is THE place to go in the area for a special occasion. The food is consistent and fresh. The spinach salad was especially good this time and I finally had the pork chop. I'm not one for eating pork much, but this was exceptional. Shopping at the attached shops were also very good. Sunday right after church seemed to be a somewhat quieter time, surprisingly. Will return soon."

  • "Party of 16 table felt too cramped. My order was never received & then got it to go so party wouldn't have to wait on me.Meal to go not what was ordered. Asked for dessert for 2 & only got 1.I will return again but not with a group.Meal was compensated but I would of appreciated it served while I was there with my party."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and so good. Love the 1" pork chop. My husband had the Elle Mae Chicken, I believe that was the name and it was very good too. We always enjoy our time at Patti's. It is a special trip and day for us."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Probably eaten here every time I pass through Western KY in the last 20 years. I plan my trips around this place. Always a very good experience. Their pork chops and pies are outstanding. If I could ever pass on the pork chops, I would simply eat THREE slices of pie for my meal! You wont go wrong eating here, but make reservations before you show up so you will not be disappointed or have to wait a long time. They have a great reputation in food and service and they work hard to maintain it."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • " Patti's has a great deal of ambience. It is pleasant both as a restaurant and as a nice place to visit. The prices were moderate. I had the 2" pork hop which was very good and my wife had the Beef Oscar. Our appetizer and the Beef Oscar were overly salty. It was wonderful that the waitresses sang us "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" as it was our 50th anniversary of the day my wife and I met."

  • "6:15 reservation; we are on the wooden walkway at 6:18 when my cell phone rings. The Patti's hostess tells me that our reservation has been "given away"; I let her know that we are there; she informs me that when we arrive we will be put in the queue. By this point I am standing in front of her and the others in the party are showing her their cell phones reading 6:19. She scolds, "your reservation was for 6:15 and you are late." About 25 minutes later we are taken to a table with an open door to the gift shop behind it. We are told that our server will be right with us... By four different people. 10 mins for water. Three of four meals come out ... Eight minutes for the fourth meal. Food good. But not a good time. Probably fun for kids."

  • "We've been to Patti's several times over the years, sometimes with family, sometimes with a group of church friends. The food is always delicious and plentiful; the prices are reasonable; the service is always considerate and helpful and good to check on our needs. I would recommend Patti's to families or a couple or larger groups. Just be sure to make reservations as early as possible and that can be done online which is convenient and quick. If you need to change the reservation, you can also do that online."
