We stopped here for a late lunch on the Tuesday after Independence Day. The wait staff was so sweet and even though the lunch menu is simple it was delicious! I had a grilled ham and cheese that was made with real ham not deli...ham. Others had the grilled cheese, club and bourbon burger which were all delicious.More

Mom and Pop type place. Good food, service is average. We went a few times for lunch and everything I have tried was good. Nothing fancy, no frills.

It’s an excellent little place to eat. A breakfast to wake up for. We had prompt service and our food was on our table in only a few moments.

Not my favorite breakfast. On our first day in town and had seen this restaurant on our way in the day before. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. We went somewhere else the next day.

Walked in, sat at table that was bussed but not cleaned. Waitress was attentive and cleaned table for us promptly, drinks were ordered and brought, food was ordered and from there it went down hill. 45 minutes later I gave a confusing look to a...worker and was told that they were short staff in the kitchen and our food was coming up. Our breakfast came up and I've never seen eggs look so bad, it looked like some one cut all the white off and left just the yolk. I tasted the potato's and cold, wife's French toast cold. informed a waitress and received no apologies. Informed owner that we were leaving and all she said was they're short staffed and proceeded to yell in the kitchen to cancel order. I get places are short staffed, but short staffed is no excuse to serve food at a unsafe temperature and sub par quality.More

Surprise - an Italian Bistro in the middle of Kentucky. Beer, wine, but come for the pizza and sandwiches. The bread is prepared and cooked onsite. One hot brown pizza, turkey sandwich and tomato soup (unique), Also had a couple of salads on the table....Saturday lunch the place was rocking. Two young ladies handling about 80 people on their own. They did a great job under the busy conditions. Will go back.More

We were looking for a place to have a bite to eat between brewery tours. This was the perfect spot. Quaint atmosphere, attentive servers, and good food at decent prices. What more can you ask for?

Comfortable place with nice breakfast offerings and friendly service from twins Erica and Elizabeth (Elizabeth is two minutes older). Lots of locals here, so you know it's good. Huge glasses of OJ, good food. Three of us had eggs with bacon; I had biscuits with...sausage gravy. A nice start to the day.More

I have eaten here numerous times and the food and service is always good. They get you thru at your pace, if you want to linger and want it faster. Pat’s is a favorite of locals for sure.

Don’t waste your time, it’s a crap shoot when they are open. Just went in with an hour to go and told they were closing early because they had been busy. Not a lack of staff, but had been busy earlier lol what a joke

This is my second visit to Pat's Place in as many years. Situated downtown, the cuisine is varied, delicious and served with gracious Southern style. They make their own desserts....O..M..G! Prices are quite reasonable and the location is central to a number of excellent distillery...tours.More

Went in for breakfast on a Thursday morning. Not busy, plenty of open tables and 3 servers. We both ordered the platter with 1 side of grits. The coffee was good, but we only got one cup since the server never bothered to come back...to ask if we wanted more. Asked for over easy eggs, the yolks were completely cooked through, the hashbrowns and sausage were frozen patties, not fresh, the grits tasted like instant, and everything was overcooked and dry. The service was the worst part. They brought the food and coffee, and then never checked back. They slipped the check onto our table and walked away without saying a thing. Apparently our very presence was insulting to them. No problem , I won't be back.More

You immediately know you are at a great place when you walk in and see locals eating here. Great coffee and great food with that local diner feeling. Try the Banana Nut Bread French Toast and a cup of coffee and your day has started...off right.More

I did not see it on the menu but they offer daily specials. I would suggest a call to the restaurant.
