My husband and I came in here for dinner on 12-18-14. This place was really nice!! It was all decorated with Christmas lights and décor. The pork chop with baked potato was really big and really yummy. The cost was $23,99 and it came with a nice dinner salad and home baked bread with strawberry butter!! The cost was a... More

My husband and I drove from Louisville, KY to stay at Patti's Inn and dine at Patti's restaurant (it was a "package deal"). My husband made the reservations for a romantic Sat date night. When we arrived at Patti's Inn, they informed us we were there on the wrong night, our reservations were for Sunday night, not Sat night.. There... More

We stopped at Patti's 1880 Settlement on our way through Kentucky. The special of the day was a 1" pork chop. It was probably the best pork chop I have ever had. It was tender with a slight smoky flavor. The pie selection is unbelievable. Unfortunately we were too full to try them all so we settled for sharing the... More

I've been going here for over 20 years, and today's service, food, and holiday decor was outstanding, as always. The Christmas tree pavilion is decked out with even more decorated trees than ever! This was my first time lunching in a Penguin-Polar Bear holiday themed section, which our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed. The flower pot bread and strawberry butter... More

Take a long break when traveling I-24 through Kentucky and enjoy this splendid "Settlement," very interesting with elegant Christmas decor during our visit. Along with a variety of shops and two great restaurants, Patti's and Bill's, it's almost sensory overload, but a fun stop nonetheless. Our party of 8 had lunch at Bill's. Service was outstanding, fresh-baked bread with strawberry... More

I have been to Patti's several times during the year but I've never been more impressed than during the Christmas holidays. The entire town of Grand Rivers, KY, decorates with over 50,000 lights and Patti's, in particular, decorates EACH, INDIVIDUAL room with different themes. The entire restaurant is just jumping with the Christmas spirit and even the BATHROOMS are exquisitely... More

We hit the road on the fifteenth day of the trip, leaving Nashville about 9:30. We stopped for lunch at Patti’s 1880s Settlement in Grand Rivers, Kentucky. Many of you are probably already familiar with this place but in case you are not: It is at the north end of the “Land Between the Lakes” area, just a few miles... More

Since she knew that I was going to be driving through the area, a friend suggested that I try this restaurant; it's roughly a 25 minute drive from Paducah. The food was tasty and the portions were huge; I ordered fried catfish from the lunch menu and had enough left for dinner that night! The flowerpot bread with strawberry butter... More
