Bill's is part of Patti's 1880's Settlement and actually shares the kitchen: the night we were there, the specials in both restaurants were identical. Patti definitely has lock on this town! Inns, restaurants, mini golf, shops...you name it, Patti owns it. Why do I point this out? You will wait a long time for a table at Patti's restaurant, when... More

We've been to Patti's a couple of times but could not get reservations there for a Friday at 6pm. The lady on the phone made reservations at Mr. Bills for us instead. The menu and prices are exactly the same, but this side of the operation seems to have a little more space between the tables, and a little less... More

We love Patti's but Bill's side is our favorite. Quieter and rooms not as crowded. Same great food. Go at Christmas to see the decorations.

Mr.Bill's is much like Patti's in menu, and price,but it beats Patt's in service. The serving staff was much more efficient and friendlier. The food was as expected. We had dined at Patti's several times and was familiar with the menu.The difference was the serving staff's attitude and efficiency. My advice to management would be to cherish your servers and...

There were eight in the family group and when Patti’s was called for reservations they advised none were available and we would have to dine at Bill’s which is a part of the same location and restaurant complex. Our reservations were for 7PM and we arrived at 6:50PM and were told there would be a wait. We eventually got seated... More

The kitchen was HOPPING, service was great. We stayed at Patti's Inn so the package included a gift card for dinner or whatever you wanted. The 2 inch porkchops were amazing, so was the stuffed filet. I don't know what the other complaints are about. We had a reservation for 7:15pm, we went in at 7:18

Let's face it Mr Bill's is really Patti's Restaurant's overflow. They send you here if there are long waits for Patti's next door. Right next door. Same menu, food, themes, prices, etc. and same thick, thick pork chops. Pricey. I really prefer lunch, a soup and salad is always good here and much cheaper than dinner. Sometimes the rest rooms...

We attempted reservations as Patti's; however, they were full and we were unable to make reservations until 8:15 pm. Decided to try Mr. Bill's which is simply an duplicate of Patti's with the same decor and menu. and is adjacent to Patti's. Nice gift shop and gardens. It too was crowded, but the food was good and the service was... More

Did not have reservations at Patti's so we were offered "Bill's" for a 20 minute wait. It was great. Same food and service as Patti's as well as their mile high pie. Tip - if you are staying in the area buy at whole pie from the bakery and eat it later. Cheaper than buying in the restaurant and much... More

Mr. Bills is just an extension of Patti's. The decor is just as amazing and the food comes from the same kitchen as Patti's. The neat thing is if you go to Patti's and there is a long wait, they will send you around the corner to Mr. Bills and they take you right in...no waiting (even if there is... More
