  • "Good food. Love the atmosphere. This is where my daughter wanted to celebrate her 22nd birthday."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Be sure to reserve your table in that on weekends it gets very busy. The grounds and shops are all about tourist and not about 1880s. Great food at a good price for the location. More of a special event or celebrations type place. Why the owner makes the staff were clothing that is so cumbersome and not to what ladies would wear in 1880 is beyond me. Seems more of a movie director's idea of time and place stuck on the set of "Gone with the wind" than anyone having done some research to set the tone of a true 1880 boarding house or a high class hotel dining room."

  • "Hamburger bun was chewy. The ribeye steak was not caramelized as it was many times before. Food just was not as good as it has always been."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We have dined here many times before, but were disappointed this time. Service extremely slow. One child ordered a plain cheeseburger & it came with pickles on it along with tomato & lettuce.. The ice cream pies were melting when we got them for dessert. We had a party of 7 with reservations, we sat in a very small area and it took us 2 hours to complete our meal. Probably will not return."

  • "We had a table of 7. Everybody ate something different and enjoyed everything! As always the potato chip appetizer is a winner. I had a new item on the menu...Oscar....I forgot the name of it. It had chicken, big shrimp, mushrooms and asparagus covered in a creamy delicious sauce, with a baked potato. The service was impeccable. The server was very attentive and kept the sweet tea flowing!"

  • "We were visiting our son spending the summer at GSP at Murray State University and on family day decided to drive to Patti's for lunch. We made reservations and were seated right on time even though for those without there was a 1+ hour wait. The food was very good and the flower pot bread with strawberry butter clever. We enjoyed walking around the grounds, gardens and gift shops on a beautiful summer day after our meal. A great stop if you are in the area of Land Between the Lakes."

  • "My husband and son and I had an early dinner. It was all too rushed and cramped. The dining room we were in had seven tables but should have had about three less. The servers gave you two minutes and then asked for your order. I started with a salad and it was sad. There was a chunk of egg in the dressing served on the side. Eww. My husband had the pork chop and it was tender and tasty. I my son has a shrimp pasta that was overdone with four pcs of shrimp. I has the fried shrimp. The batter on the shrimp was the size of tennis balls- kinda gross. After stripping off the giant glob of batter,the shrimp was tiny. Over $85 with a tip. I would not go back. Love the kitschy decor, but it doesn't make up for rushed service and poor quality food."

  • "Our family has been dining at Patti's for a long time. We've never had a bad experience there. The food is always great, the service is prompt, and the desserts are outstanding in variety. This last visit was a celebration for the 4th of July. There was a huge crowd, but thanks to our reservation, we were seated quickly. We have also eaten at Bill's, the companion restaurant of Patti's and we've had good experiences there, too. I believe that the two restaurants share the same kitchen. So hurray for Patti's."

  • "We love stopping by Patti's on our way back vacation. The food is alway excellent and the service is great! It is a great place to stretch your legs and let the kids run around after a long trip in the car. It is not often that someone makes a trip to a town 3 1/2 hours away for the day JUST to eat at a restaurant. Don't forget to make reservations, they usually have a long wait, but the wait is worth it."

If you haven't been to Patty's 1800 Settlement to eat you should make plans to try it soon! Because you are truly missing out! Can't wait to visit again soon...but I did bring back Stawberry Butter until next time!"
