“A Restaurant That Never Lets You Down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Patio is a restaurant that is perfect for most occasions. It is decorated in an old-fashioned style--dark and intimate with small tables and patio-style metal chairs--so that it seems to be ideal for dinners for two and special celebrations. The food is so good, though, that people in the know don't just go there for special occasions, but go to The Patio anytime they have an excuse to eat at a restaurant. Everything there is great--steak lovers swear by their steaks, the prime rib is always good, the pasta bar on Thursdays (and Fridays during Lent) is terrific,
the enormous pork chop is a meal in itself, the Patio chicken livers are wonderful, their special salads and potatoes are tasty, and there also is an excellent bar. The last time we were there I had the grilled scallops with drawn butter--yum!

This is the one restaurant in town that our out-of-town children ALWAYS have to visit when they come home.

“Excellent intimate setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Cool, dark, and quiet. Really great steaks, etc., cooked on a grill over a fire. Great spot for an intimate dinner and a really good steak.

I really like alfredo pasta, taste deliciuos.
The place is a old restaurant, but looks like in good condition.
The service is excellent, little over-priced restaurant, but in general is a good food experience.

“Quincy's original steak house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

The atmosphere is a throw back to the 50 and 60's. If you are a fan of the show "Mad men" your going to love the Patio. A dark interior with indirect lighting make this a local and regional favorite for steaks, seafood, and many other items. I have been a fan for over 40 years.
