    Most delicious food I've experienced in a very long time! Presentation was outstanding, flavors were rich without being overpowering, portions were big enough to need a carryout box for leftovers! While we had a wait to be seated even with our reservation, the staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful at all times. Having worked food service I know first hand how tiring and frustrating the job can be, but everyone we talked with had a smile and positive attitude! This was DEFINITLY a trip worth making, and we hope to return soon!!!

    We usually go to Patti's a few times a year & decided to go over the Labor Day weekend. We had reservations & thought we would wait even with a reserved time. We arrived an hour early to walk around the shops & enjoy the grounds. The shops have something the whole family would enjoy. We checked in 15 min early & was seated in 5 min. There were so many people but we got right in. We had the special, a smothered Texas Steak, & it was the best meal we've ever had at Patti's. It was so delicious, we are every bite & couldn't even get our usual dessert. The service was impeccable & we're looking forward to our next visit & we hope they offer that smothered Texas Steak again!

    I have eaten at Patti's many times, and I must say the food was not as good as usual. The asparagus was WAY overcooked....if I had not know what I this was, I would have trouble identifying it. Very thin, nearly soggy ...just not pleasing. The fillet medallions were supposed to be be medium, but were slightly overcooked. For the price, it should have been better. I will go back, but will order something different

    Were seated 15 minutes before our 1:00 pm reservation which was positive. We specified in our reservation a quieter location but were seated by the kitchen. Asked to move, were told no due to availability but we could clearly see empty tables in the restaurant. Were in a busy pathway between the kitchen and two dining areas, the servers would hurry by almost brushing against us. One server came by with a heavily laden tray and passed the tray directly over the top of my head. Another placed a drinks tray just behind my companion and served from there. Our meal came about 1:25 and only after we asked for it, the server was clearly unhappy we asked about the delay. Just wanted the meal to end so we could leave, very stressful.

    It reminds me of a miniature Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge East Tennessee little town. The grounds were very nice and there were plenty of antique shops to visit while waiting on your reservation time to be seated. We got there about an hour early and toured the grounds a little bit. The salad was not very good. I had catfish which was very good but the hushpuppies were missing something so they were not very good. We were told that they were known for their pork chops and desserts, which we had neither. I would visit again and probably try something different. The lighting at the table was quite bright at our table and dim lighting for dinner would have been more appropriate.

    Overall experience was good. Portions were large. Pork loin fillet was fabulous. Catfish was tasty. Onion rings did not do any thing for me. Not a fan of beer batter. Restaurant is a bit dated. Felt like I was in a mini Opryland of yesteryear. Staff was very friendly, informative and helpful. Their "uniforms" were hideously outdated. Realize the name is "patti's 1880 but they need a fresh look. They were out of the dessert that we requested and nothing else seemed to fit what we wanted. But overall the food was good.

    We drove up from TN just to eat here! The food was good and the service was too! I was dissappointed with the upkeep outdoors. The ponds were dirty and green. The grass was grown up in some areas. I sure hated to see this since Patti's is so beautiful. I hate to mention the cats because I am such an animal lover but there seem to be an over run of them. I saw food and water everywhere for them but they were skinny which tells me they need vetting. Never saw any vaccination tags on any of them.

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    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!

    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.

  • Local Legacy Restaurant
    HRMayer
    Dined on 8/6/2014
    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.

  • Awesome Pork Chop

    Dined on 8/5/2014
    Although I am usually not a pork chop fan, I decided to try the 2" pork chop and was far from disappointed. This was not only the best pork chop I have ever had, but one of the top 3 pieces of meat I have ever eaten. Add to this the fresh flower pot bread and strawberry butter and I couldn't ask for a better meal. We had 4 adults and 3 kids in our group and I was worried about my kids behavior in a place this fancy. My kids were behaved, but still acted like kids and I never felt like they were not wanted. Our server was great, also. We will definitely return to Patti's the next time we are in the area.

    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.

    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.
