I took my friend to lunch here this past week and the decor, service, ambiance and food are absolutely spectacular. Run, don't walk, to give your senses and taste buds a treat. They are closing August 31 of this year!

Food and service outstanding. The restaurant is closing this month. It will be a loss to the area because there are few restaurants of this stature in the area

Patsel's is closing, so sad. So we've been taking advantage of warm summer nights to go there and savor their final offerings before closing at the end of August. Everything is truly delicious, but I really like the duck. It's done well and is not something you find on many menus. I would recommend experiencing Patsel's before they close.

My husband and I went there for our anniversary and were excited to have a fantastic meal. The prices were rather high but I could have dealt with that. What I struggled with the most was the staff. We literally were interrupted every 5 minutes by some one to "see how we were doing" or "to say hello". Then they... More

For 15 years Patsel's has stood out as a great restaurant amongst much mediocrity. It is closing because the community was not ready to consistently support a such a great restaurant . John and Pat Arkins( owners): Kudos to a job so very well done. Great food and wonderful ambience.

Patsel's is beautifully decorated and has a lovely garden. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food and desserts were delicious. It is a little pricey but worth the time to visit for a special occasion. I am sorry to hear that it is closing.

Perfect way to lift your spirits on a cold, dreary, rainy Sunday afternoon. It is like walking into a sunshine rainbow entering the restaurant. Staff and food fantastic. So sad to hear it is closing :( A rare gem to visit before the closing.

Patsel's is a feast for eyes and palate. Interesting art, standout decor, lovely gardens. And excellent food! We usually go for lunch and choose one of the specials. Soups especially are excellent. Attractive presentation, attentive waitstaff. Fair prices. The chef has been here since the place opened almost 15 years ago -- just about unheard of in the restaurant business.... More

We have been dining at Patsel's since we discovered them in 2001 and it is always our "go to favorite" when we need to celebrate or just to have a pick-me-up. We always bring special friends here and are so sad they will be closing Aug. 31, 2014. We will go as often as we can until then and continue... More
