“Only Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We found the steaks here only average, a bit tasteless. Deserts were no better. The service was friendly, but we felt rushed to finish up our meal and leave the restaurant, at one stae one of the waiters took away the plates while others in our group were still eating.

“If you want a good STEAK!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Sometimes you just want an excellent Filet!! And Pat's got it! They have simple sides like lima beans and baked potato paired with a salad with home made blue cheese dressing! MMMMMMMMmm delicious! Excellent service as well!

“Perfect place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a perfect place if you want a fantastic steak!! Unlike the chain restaurants, this is locally owned and you can see that in the loving way they care for their establishment. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere and decor are great and the service is wonderful. There is always a wait, so make sure you get your reservations in!!!

“Pat's, Nice Folks..but didn't knock our socks off.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Servers with Gym Shoes, very old decor, outside of the building dirty. 80 degrees when we first sat down in the restaurant. Cash and Personal check only, no Credit Cards. Really nice folks though, Pat walked around and greeted people, and our server was really nice. They also really helped us celebrate our anniversary with their hospitality. I was dissapointed with the steak, it was a filet but came out with a bacon wrap, and the shape of it was very odd. Also, it lacked a real good season to it, and just left something to be desired. The house bleu cheese is awesome, and you get a salad, and two sides with your steak, so it is more affordable than your common, ala-carte type steakjoint (the greenbeans are excellent, hasbrowns were ok). Decent Wine List, but the server didn't know the wines enough to give me a recommendation, based on my likes I told him. We were in and out within an hour of getting there, which is just too fast for a "fine" dining experience. I worked in fine dining for a couple of years growing up, and I can honestly say, this is more of a family oriented, cross between a fine dining steakhouse, and an Irish Outback type place.

“Great Steak at an Equally Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I am a steak snob. I want it cooked precisely as requested and to have excellent flavor. Pat's has not ever failed! The steak is wonderful. The sides are just as good. I can also recommend the fried oysters. These are some of the largest oysters you will ever see. The are great and with very little breading. The bleu cheese dressing is homemade and the best in town! The atmosphere reminds one of the 50s with old standards playing in the background. Very romantic! My son, requested we make reservations here for he and his date before Trinity's Winter dance. This is our son-inlaw's favorite restaurant. While he was in Afganistan, Pat never failed to ask about him. Needless to say, we love Pat's!
