When we are near this area we always try to have dinner at Patti's 1880's restaurant. The food and service are always top notch. I normally have the signature pork chop dinner but this time we tried a couple of the chicken specialties. Both were really good. Oh, and the flower pot bread is a... read more

We have visited Patti's many times. You may be seated at "Mr. Bill's" next door, but it is the same menu. There are cute stores, mini golf, and much to look at if you have a long wait to be seated. I definitely recommend visiting around Christmas time, their lights are beautiful. I would also strongly recommend reservations. The waitresses... More

We had a late dinner planned to go to Patti's Settlement and I really didn't think I would eat a large meal but when I saw the pork chop - it was a must have! I had the one inch pork chop and it literally fell off the bone and the amazing sauce was so yummy I might have licked... More

We had no idea when we stopped for supper. This place is awesome! Not just the restaurant but the settlement itself. And the service and food were spectacular! If you like down home dining you will love this place. We had dinner and the next day went back for lunch. Great food and service both times. After dark it turns... More

Thoroughly enjoy eating at Patti's. The food is always excellent. LOVE the 2 inch pork chop. Buy the sauce in the gift shop and you can make equally delicious pork chops at home too!

Did not expect much, frankly, but was blown away by the breadth of selection and quality of the servers at this quaint restaurant in rural Kentucky. Our server, Dusti, handled our large table with ease and charm and a great smile. Potted bread with strawberry butter was a hit with our family as we awaited our salad and soup course.... More

Stopped in for lunch with two kids. Menu is extensive and clearly vetted by time. Food was great! We especially enjoyed the flower pot bread with the strawberry butter. Kids meal were enormous. My wife got the brown Kentucky and loved it. I enjoyed the fried chicken salad. We ordered the lemon meringue pie for dessert. We couldn't finish it!... More
