We love Patti's Restaurant although we don't get here often. The hostesses and servers are dressed in 1880 clothing, and are very welcoming and attentive. The food is delicious and there are many different selections for everyone. We had the spinach salad with chicken and it is delicious. It has habanero dressing which was so good, I asked to buy...

We want to Patti's for a business meeting 2 nights ago. We were like little kids ooohhhing and ahhhing staring at all the lights. The Christmas decor was still up all over the dining area and outside. I believe this is because they are so packed for Christmas that they offer office Christmas parties through February. One of my business... More

Everything about this resteraunt is awsome. One of the best prime rib dinner that I have had in years. Thick, tender and cooked just right. Reese,our server,was extremely attentive! The apple pie and lemon meringue pie were heaven. While there we walked along the walkways and looked at all the lights. It was so peaceful! We will definitely be back.

We just took my in laws here for the anniversary and his birthday. Group of 10. Excellent service, atmosphere and food. They love the family feel. And since they are teetotalers the no alcohol is fine with them. I would prefer to be able to get a glass of wine at least.

We have been coming to Patti's on an annual basis for over 15 years. It is always a special treat for our family. Over the years, the service has changed. They used to place a very special emphasis on the customer service, now not so much. They used to have gigantic portions (we always had leftovers), now not so much.... More

This is one of those restaurants you take pictures of your food or a selfie with your food then you send it, or post it on a social media site and make people jealous.....and it works..! I have never been disappointed in any aspect of my visits there. From the service, atmosphere, food, dessert and cleanliness.
