    Hadn't been to Patti's in several years. First time was excellent but this time was just ok. Food was just warm and my pork chop was a little dry. Price is pretty high so I expected a little better.

    I have been eating a Patti's for special occasions for decades and I have never once had a bad or even less that wonderful experience. During cold weather, it would be nice if they had a little bit bigger place for you to wait for your table. If you come right at your reservation time the wait is not too terribly long though. The food is always excellent and always worth the wait. The staff is always very friendly and very accommodating.

    Our gathering at Patty's for a retirement and birthday celebration was fantastic. This festive restaurant decorated for the holidays and located in a lovely small town shopping community was the perfect place to dine on their colossal cheese sticks, famous 2" pork chops and delicious flower pot bread with strawberry butter... yum! The wait staff was attentive, pleasant and fit right in with the party. We'll be back!

    The decor makes any meal at Patti ' s a special occasion. I was there with 3 of my old High School friends. We get together once a year for a special weekend to catch up on all the news from our busy lives. Three of us ordered the tropical pork. The chutney on the pork chop added a wonderful blend of flavors to the succulent meat. My other friend stated that the salmon was cooked to perfection and the best she had had in a long time. The warm flower pot bread with strawberry butter was a treat. The desserts were decadent. The server was attentive. A real dining pleasure. I would recommend reservations--it is a very busy place. I have eaten there on several other occasions and have never been disappointed.

    Patti's is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. My family and I drove two hours to get there and the dining experience is great. They already had Christmas decorations up and they were fantastic. We went on a Sunday and it was slightly crowded but the food was worth the wait. My son had the two inch pork chop which he said was wonderful. I had the 1 inch and it was great also. The flowerpot bread with strawberry butter is one of my favorite things about dining there and the waitress kept bringing out more when we ask. It was well worth my long drive and waiting time. I plan on going again before Christmas

Delicious food, great service, and we enjoyed the stroll outdoor after our meal to admire the Christmas lights. An experience everyone should try!

    The entire village was decorated for Christmas, and was very pretty. The service was good, but not great. The pork chop sauce was entirely too salty. The hot bacon dressing for the spinach salad was more like sweet and sour sauce. The baked potato was good, as was the flower pot bread. Lunch for two was over $47 plus tip, and for that price I would have expected a cloth napkin instead of cheap stainless rolled up in paper.

    We drive 2.5 hours and try to come 3 times a year. We come spring/summer, fall, then try and catch the lights. My daughter has never been and after some health issues we thought she would enjoy it. The service was slow and the pork chops were dry with no flavor. It was almost as if they were cooked in advance. They didn't seem to have the sauce on them. Very expensive meal and drive for such. The waitress was always gone for long periods of time. It took 30 to bag our leftovers which in not sure why we took them because it wasn't edible left over. It will be sometime before we make the drive again.

    Listen, I an an avid fan of all things culinary. I like to say that food is my ministry! In other words, I am a foodie to the next level, and Patti's has provided this foodie a delightful first experience! Two friends and I went to Patti's to celebrate a friend's 25th birthday. My two friends had eaten at Patti's, but I hadn't. We started off with the appetizer sampler with juicy chicken tenders, gooey cheese sticks, crisp loaded chips, and excellent fried pickles. After that, I enjoyed a delicious, savory Kentucky Hot Brown with a loaded baked potato (loaded to the MAX) and green beans (gotta have something green). I washed all this down with iced sweet tea. I highly recommend Patti's for groups and special occasions! Be blessed!

    I had known this place as famous pork chop restaurant for years. It was a lot more than that! I live about an hour away, and I was shocked that I had never stopped at this place before! It is such a fun place for not only eating, but also walking around. I already am planning to go back there soon!! I also can't wait to visit stores(they were all closed on Sunday) and Christmas decorations.

    Had the sampler appetizer, best cheese sticks I've ever had, dip was great too. Chicken strips and pickles were so so. Wife and I both ordered the 2" chop. I had the tomato bisque, best I've ever had. Wife had pork fiesta, she enjoyed it. Then came the potato and chop. Potatoes were good , but it's a baked potato so should be easy. The chop on the other hand was very disappointing. It was way over cooked ,dry , and tuff. The "gravy" was way too salty. When I was reading the menu about pork should be pink, I thought finally a restaurant gets it. I wouldn't be so critical but this is the "signature" dish. Service was awesome.

    A trip for the fulfilling of a desire to eat at Patti's. We had visited Patti's several years before and wished to visit again. We started our meal with the fried pickles, main courses were the fish sandwich and the chicken with the cheese sauce, mushrooms and grilled asparagus and dessert was the lemon pie. The signature "bread in the flower pot" was served warm with regular and strawberry butter. The meal was served by Nicole. The food was served hot and was very tasty. I give Patti's A+ for the meal. Waiting to return.

    We were promptly seated at a corner table in a nicely decorated room. But then we sat for a good 15 minutes without even being acknowledged. Then a waiter who was not our assigned server noticed that we didn't even have drinks. He took our drink order and said he would get our server. She then appeared and wanted to take our dinner order immediately and we ordered pork chops. Two minutes later she reappeared and asked us if we wanted a free appetizer because of our wait. We declined as she had already taken our dinner order. We then waited 40 minutes for our dinner. She then offered us free dessert to compensate us for our wait, but again wanted our order immediately without even offering a menu-she was very rude. Overall a bad experience.

    Came to Grand Rivers for the Hunters Moon Festival and of course we had to eat at Patti's. The food was great! My husband had the ribeye which was excellent, I had Chicken Oscar, and the 2 grandkids had chicken tenders. We have always been well pleased with our Patti's experience and look foward to going back when we are back in Grand Rivers.
