It's alllll good!

We always eat at least once at Patti's while we're out on the lakes. The portions of their meals are generous to say the least. It is all delicious. You must top it off with one of their mile high meringue pies!!!!

What a place. Great service. Seated quickly. Awesome atmosphere and amazing food. Ordered the Ky Hot Brown and it was tasty. Kitchen times very fast and server was excellent. Little pricy but nice place to visit.

OK we've all had a really good pork chop or two right? Wrong! This place redefines what a really good pork chop should taste like. They start with a two inch thick center cut pork chop, cook it perfectly, then add their signature sauce, the result is a magnificent pork chop that, at first sight, you can't imagine you will...

Food and service has ALWAYS been good. Sometimes the line is long, but once you are at the table, the rest of the experience is great!

Had seen so much advertising about this place that tried it during our visit to Grand Rivers. We were there for lunch and were waited on quickly. The food was good (had the 1 inch pork chop) but not outstanding. Cost us over $40 for lunch! Possibly have less expensive dishes but this was the one they seemed to be... More

Patti's was an expensive experience in dining. We went there because someone told us of their fried chicken, They don't have fried chicken ! While waiting for a table, we looked over a menu they had displayed in the lobby and found some burgers which looked good and were affordable,But once seated, we were informed burgers are not served after...

We were here to celebrate my best friend's wedding and she took us to this restaurant for lunch. The decor was nice, each room decorated a bit different. The food was a bit too salty but the bread and strawberry butter was delicious! The thing that ruined my lunch was the woman that came into to dining room every 7-10... More

Ignore any negative reviews. I have eaten here many times and I have had a great meal and great service every time. My wife and I spent our 43rd Wedding Anniversary dinner here. We had a 7:30 reservation. We were seated at 7:30. Drinks were served almost immediately. I had the signature 2 inch pork chop. As usual, it was... More

We got so lost on this property of many small buildings made to look like a Disney village from the 19th century. When we finally found the restaurant, I was visually knocked over by thousands of objects and lights to decorate the many dining rooms and adjoining gift shop. The servers all wore hideous matching dresses of the era, and... More

The whole settlement is well worth visiting, but the restaurant is excellent. The portions are more than generous--we ordered the "lite" lunch of 1/2 sandwich & cup of soup. It was too much to finish, as it included their scratch-made potato chips and coleslaw. Also went for the coconut cake for dessert, getcha some!
