The kitchen was HOPPING, service was great. We stayed at Patti's Inn so the package included a gift card for dinner or whatever you wanted. The 2 inch porkchops were amazing, so was the stuffed filet. I don't know what the other complaints are about. We had a reservation for 7:15pm, we went in... read more

Let's face it Mr Bill's is really Patti's Restaurant's overflow. They send you here if there are long waits for Patti's next door. Right next door. Same menu, food, themes, prices, etc. and same thick, thick pork chops. Pricey. I really prefer lunch, a soup and salad is always good here and much cheaper than dinner. Sometimes the rest rooms...

We attempted reservations as Patti's; however, they were full and we were unable to make reservations until 8:15 pm. Decided to try Mr. Bill's which is simply an duplicate of Patti's with the same decor and menu. and is adjacent to Patti's. Nice gift shop and gardens. It too was crowded, but the food was good and the service was... More

Did not have reservations at Patti's so we were offered "Bill's" for a 20 minute wait. It was great. Same food and service as Patti's as well as their mile high pie. Tip - if you are staying in the area buy at whole pie from the bakery and eat it later. Cheaper than buying in the restaurant and much... More

Mr. Bills is just an extension of Patti's. The decor is just as amazing and the food comes from the same kitchen as Patti's. The neat thing is if you go to Patti's and there is a long wait, they will send you around the corner to Mr. Bills and they take you right in...no waiting (even if there is... More

The food was delicious, the service over-the-top. We went to Bill's restaurant in celebration of our anniversary. It was a wonderful treat. The decorations were a little on the gaudy side, yes, but they definitely fit the 1880's theme. We loved our meal. My husband ordered their famous 2" pork chop and was NOT disappointed. I had the chicken breast... More

Maybe yesterday, it was clean. The restroom was DIRTY!!! It was 4 pm and the trashcan was overflowing with paper towels on the floor and the odor was horrific. The toilet was dirty. Maybe yesterday, the decorations were pretty.The table decor was crumpled as if just out of a box, the poinsettia decor outside was faded and crumpled. Maybe yesterday,... More

We went to Patti's 1880 for lunch with a group of 25 motorcycle riders in our association. Our road captain had made the reservations a good three weeks prior. We were given only three items off the menu to choose from, a one inch pork chop, a chicken breast and the Hawaiian salad. First restraurant I've gone to with a... More

We had lunch at Bill's on a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, they told us we'd have to wait for a table, even though we were the only ones at the entrance. After five or ten minutes, we were seated -- in an almost empty dining room. Our meals came with the 'flower pot bread', a gimmick to charge more... More

My daughter ate here today. We were driving through the area and I had heard of Patti's, so wanted to try it. ( Reservations are recommended). We did not want to wait the 1 1/2 hours to eat there, so we decided to give Bill's a try. I walked from one area to the next with no problems Nd did... More
