We had eaten here several years ago and had a great experience then, so we ventured there again. Not disappointed AT ALL! We were able to make reservations and avoid the wait time which started our experience out even better. From the flower pot bread with the strawberry butter to the salad (I had the spinach with hot bacon dressing... More

I grew up in Paducah and have been coming to Patti's for close to 30 years. I can honestly say it is one of the only things about West Ky that has not changed since I was a kid, which I find comforting. After all the many times I've been here, you'd think I would have at least once caught... More

The atmosphere is so interesting and historical! Each room is themed, the workers are dressed in costume, and the newspaper articles match the timeframe. So fun! The food was wonderful! We had flower pot bread with strawberry butter (one of the things they are known for and is amazing!), the porkchop which had great flavor, and the loaded baked potato... More

After traveling to the Mid West regularly over the past 4 years and having received many recommendations to dine at Patti's, we finally decided to take the 2 hour drive. The interior was cosy, but the dust invested artificial flowers sent shivers down my spine. The carpet was very dirty - probably beyond cleaning. The hostess was great but our... More

Whenever we're in the area, we always go to Patti's. They have the best 2-inch pork chops! Their bread that comes in clay pots are also awesome. We were seated outside in the patio which is surrounded with the lush gardens and there are shops in the back as well!

The food was wonderful. I got one of the specials which was a filet and salmon. Really good. My husband had the famous pork chop. WOW And we were almost too full for desserts but tried the I think boatsinker pie. Really good. It was too bad our motel did not have a fridge to keep our leftovers so we... More

One of the best restaurants around. We have been back many times and will continue to go in the future. Wonderful little shops outside for shopping before or after meal, with a gazebo so beautiful they use it for weddings. Go for the pork chops and the pies. If Patty's is not available, eat at Bill's. The food is the... More

If you are planning to visit the Kentucky Lake area, your trip really needs to include a visit to Patti’s 1880 Settlement. It’s a large complex with restaurant, shops, pretty garden area to stroll through, live animals & more. Reservations are suggested. My husband & I both enjoyed the infamous pork chop for dinner – the 2-inch for him &... More

Went to Miss Patti's yesterday with family. As always an excellent experience. We had reservations so we were seated within a few mintutes of arriving. Our experience began with an excellent server named Brett who was at our benkon call the entire meal. He was very attentive without intruding on our meal. It was amazing when he recited the entire...

We have taken groups there for lunch for several years. We are seated in a separate dining area and the service we receive is excellent. The food is excellent, portions are generous and the Saw Dust Pie is to die for. The tour of the settlement area filled with pretty flowers, a nice walk path, unique gift shops and even... More
