Was a fun place to visit. The entrees are good but the bread, strawberry whipped butter and desserts are fantastic!

It's easy for a place to got to sleep at the wheel after it receives such a following and status. The over all experience was good. Didn't feel that the price was right for what we got. I feel they need to do some minor renovations to keep the place fresh looking. Need a thorough deep cleaning. Very dusty. The... More

This was my first visit. The food was good, but not just outstanding. It was just an usual experience to eat here and not be rushed. The servers were very nice and the menu was a good selection for everyone. Would recommend this place to any of my friends.

This isn't a place I would eat at on a regular basis. When visiting Green Turtle Bay Resort each year, we usually make it a point to eat at Patti's mainly because it's a tourist attraction and also one of the only restaurants in Grand Rivers. The food is good but it is expensive (we spent approx $75 for two... More

I had the pork chop and it was very good, it's their specialty. They marinate the pork chop and you can also buy the marinate there. They bring out bread with homemade strawberry butter. Great place to try..

The service was, "cloyey" and obsequious. Real let down; reminded both my wife and I of Uriah Heep. The kitchen saved the place for our visit.
