Enjoyed the meal very much. Patti's was decorated for Christmas and we enjoyed walking through and seeing all of the displays.

The food was ok. A little overpriced though. Service was ok. We sat in a corner and I felt like we were forgotten. The roll in the flower pot would have been better if we received it with our drinks instead of with our entrees. I would go again, but probably only for dessert.

It’s always an eye treat since the dining rooms have received their Christmas decorations. After our meal (never ever disappointed with Patti’s food, no mater what you try) we strolled around the shops and trails to see the Christmas lighting. Even if you’re not eating, it’s a fun place to visit and walk, shop and watch.

Our second visit on our anniversary and it was just as good if not better than our first visit. We were a bit disappointed that none of the shops were open, but the lights were very impressive. My wife had the salmon and I had a most wonderful steak. There was plenty of food and we opted to bring some of it home with us. It is an hour and one half drive to get there, but it was still so worth the trip. We will be back and will bring some friends with us. Here is a picture of my beautiful bride of 39 years.

Amazing decorations make for a festive ambiance. Our server, Seth, was helpful in providing suggestions and attentive to any needs we had. Food was delicious, beginning with their bread baked in a flower pot, straight through to the 2 inch pork chop my husband enjoyed. I would definitely return and encourage others to visit!

Disappointed in the salad. Will order soup if we come again. Pork fillet should have been a little browner for our satisfaction.

We drove about 2 hours to get there and were early for our reservation by about 40 minutes. With no problem at all, we were seated in less than 10 minutes. The service was wonderful as was the food! It's a little pricey, but the atmosphere, service, and food are unbeatable. I only wish we lived closer so we could go more often.

Our waitress was terrible. She did not greet us when she arrived at our table - she just asked for our drink order. She entered one of our food orders wrong and th person didn't get their corrected meal until everyone was finished eating. Her overall attitude was terrible. Wish we had had another server.
Her name was Cara.

We have always been more than happy when we visit Patti's. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun family time together. It is approximately 2 hours or more from home and we never mind the drive. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault!

The food & service was good. We were there for the Festival of Lights. It was advertised to start at 4:30, but they actually didn't turn on the lights until about 5:45. That was a disappointment because it was so cold outside & we had eaten at 2 pm. We had a long drive home. Made for a long day.

Food was good.service good. Waited 2 1/2 hpurs for lights to be turned on. Got out there at 5 . Filming was taking place. Carter didnt get there til 630 . They did retake after retake. Band did not play . Lights on less than 5 min turned them off. We ended up going to shop . Lights on when we left at 9. We parked in handicap parking at pattys in back. My 88 yr old mother ended up falling. No light on wxcept chritmas lights. She fell on sidewalk trying to get to car. There was 2inches of water at the curb. She couldnt see because it was dark. She hit face first. So her head hands and knees were bleeding. Glasses broken. Lenses was deep scatched so now unable to see out of them. We did file report. Kinda ruined the reason we came to see Christmas lights that were on for the 5 minutes. My mom is very active for 88 yrs old. She still weedeats her property as well as cuts her grass. You really need sidewalk lighting at the handicap parking places.we have the sticker for my sister. Shes the one handicapped.

Patti's restaurant wowed us again with their delicious pork chops! The restaurant and settlement was transformed into a sparkling winter wonderland, bringing out the wide-eyed inner child in all of us! We loved having the opportunity to share Patti's with our son and daughter in law, as Patti's is a very special place to my husband and me.
