    My husband and I have celebrated our anniversary at Patti's for the past several years. We would have rather had a table a little less conspicuous, like we have had in the past.The waitress was good, but didn't have the personality that most have had. The food was top notch and the presentation was great. Overall, a great night!

    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.

    The food is excellent especially the pork. I like the 2 inch pork chop. They also offer a one inch pork chop for the less inclined. The Flower pot bread and strawberry butter is very nice. The desserts are decadent! It's a good thing they are three hours away! Enjoyed it!

    The food was excellent and hearty portions. We had the loaded potato chips and they were fabulous and huge. The steak was tender and seasoned so that no additional spice or sauce was required. The only thing that seemed out of place was the music. With all the female staff on long dresses and aprons and the rustic feel of everything, the current pop music was odd and stood out like a sore thumb.

    Reese was one of the better waiter's we have had the pleasure to experience. We eat out often in various cities and the service at Patti ' s was excellent. A family was seated in our room that didn't know what "talking moderately loud" meant which put a damper on what could have been a very memorable dining experience. Seat families together and couples w/O children in separate rooms PLEASE.

    Patti's is a family favorite. It's a special place we like to try and visit at least once a year, altho their prices are getting too steep for our limited funds the past year or so.

    Any trip that might take you through Western Kentucky is worthy as an excuse to stop at Exit 31/Grand Rivers for a meal at Patti's. Famous across the Commonwealth for its food (while known for their juicy 2" pork chop I can attest that the greatest ribeye I've ever eaten was there) and its atmosphere, Patti's draws guests far and wide. They've got a small collection of animals, a putt-putt course and remote controlled boats for kids and families to enjoy. They've got several shops on the property - all an easy walk right outside the restaurant door around an arboretum of sorts with a water/stream feature (great photo ops). Finally, during fall they've got a Christmas light setup you've got to see to believe! I can't recommend it higher!

    We have been to Patti's many times and were especially disappointed this visit. The portions seem to get smaller and of lesser quality as the prices increase. The soup was watery and the deserts very average. We will no longer include this restaurant when we entertain out of town guests.

    Was traveling and saw signs for this place, and my wifes coworker was telling her about it. After checking it out on the internet, decided to go there. This place was great! The overall experience was good, and the food was amazing! Got the 2 inch pork chop, it was awesome! Our only negative experience was at the end of our meal. Our server seemed too busy to get to us. It took awhile to get our check, and since we were in a corner, she seemed to forget about us. Besides that the place was amazing!

    Patti's is a must if you are visiting the area. It is a sprawling complex - 2 restaurants/ several shops. The grounds contain gardens - exotic/ native plants, gazebos, waterfalls etc. I had catfish this time -- it was great. The hushpuppies were so-so -- I know they are hard to get right. The steamed vegetables were good but apparently had some kind of oil on them which they didn't need. The spinach salad was tasty but a little on the skimpy side given the price of the meal. Portions on the rest of the meal were generous. The flowerpot bread was delicious - especially with strawberry butter (my dessert.) It was a tough choice having fish rather than a famous Patti's pork chop - so I hope it won't be so long until I can return!

    This was my very first visit to Patti's. Everyone recommended I try it and raved about their pork chops. I was NOT disappointed! The service was friendly and very quick. The 2 in pork chop was mouth-watering! I even gnawed on the bone!! I will definitely return, and will possible make a weekend get away JUST for those pork chops!
