After some sad dinners while visiting Kentucky we ended up at Patti's, wish I had gone here every night! The food was great and the kids loved wandering around checking everything out. Of course we tried the pork chop and it was really good. I had the beef oscar and it was amazing! Wish I could have more of it.

We love eating here. We did have a large group, 25. There were several in our group that had never eaten there. The food was awesome. The disappointment was with one of the two servers that we had. She was the rudest waitress that I had ever experienced anywhere. It was so bad and unprofessional that even the other waitress... More

My favorite place to eat. Always very good. Make reservations. Enjoy dessert! Always have the pork chops and sometimes if we eat there twice the fried shrimp. The pot of bread and strawberry butter is divine!

My husband an I recently spent a week at Ky lake. We had heard of Patti's and had to give it a try! We had the blooming onion for an appetizer an we both had the stuffed fillet. It was by far the best steak we have ever had! Seasoned perfectly, cooked the way we ordered, and fork tender! Oh... More

This is a special place. We save it for our anniversary and a Christmas visit. The prices are pretty high, but the experience is worth the money. Their Christmas decorations must be seen to be believed. Quite a spectacle for Western Kentucky.

We stayed in the area on our way home from mini vacation. Had made rsvp for 6:45 pm. We arrived early by 1/2 hr and we were seated immediately. The staff that greeted us were very pleasant. Our hostess and waitresses were spot on with information about the restaurant and menu. The atmosphere was nice and warm. We ordered the... More

We stopped here for the first time on our way to the Land Between The Lakes area. It was a very unique experience to just walk around the grounds. My wife and I both had the pork chops after we shared an order of the fried pickles. Both were good. I thought everything was a bit expensive. The service was... More

Company and they wanted to go, so I gave it a shot. I should have shot the company. Why do people love the food because they get a giant portion? A big plate of bad fòod is still bad food. Lazy service, robbery prices, and the old restaurant trick of overwhelming you so you think it has to be good.... More

Had dinner here on recommendation of friends on our way to visit family in south east KY. We did not have reservations so the wait to be seated was over an hour. The food was worth the wait. You wont find better pork chops in the country. Some nice little shops around the restaurant to visit if you have a... More
