“What has happened to Pat's?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Slow service; bland food; hard, dry rolls; sparse salad. what's going on?
Regular filet was cooked perfectly, but had zero seasoning - not even salt or pepper.

“Fabulous Cuts of Beef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The steaks are top of the line cuts, cooked to perfection. The ambiance is 100% Irish in Kentucky. White linen table cloths, and excellent service help to make this a great place to eat.

“Great Local Flavor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Pat's Steakhouse is a Louisville institution serving great atmosphere, very good steaks and homemade sides. Wine list is a medium level both in offering and price. Definately a good local dependable place. Note they ae a cash only restaurant!!

“I'd Go Back in a Minute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was the second time my family has been to Pats Steakhouse during Derby weekend. It was as good as last time. It was crowded, which was expected, but the service was excellent and the food was very good. They give you plenty of food and the vegetable side dishes were a real compliment to the steaks. The place is reminiscent of a steakhouse from 50 years or so ago, which is approximately when Pat’s started. I would go back in a minute – it was excellent.

“Not too good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Felt very unwelcome as we asked to sit at the empty bar and they told us we couldn't because they were too busy. We were the only people in the restaurant. Only 2 people ever came to the bar while we were there. Stayed and ate at a table and the steak had no flavor. Everything was very bland and didn't even have basic seasoning like salt and pepper. Our server was good and the place seems cool because it's been around so long, but we felt very unwelcome (and we were dressed up) and were very disappointed in the steak.
