Slightly more crowded than Patti's side, but same great food! Food choices are the same at both places, however, Bill's is set up more like a Cracker Barrell type of setting. Excellent service and excellent food!!

Bill's and Patti's use the same kitchen, They are adjoining, so either would be a good choice. We were unaware of this great find until I saw a cookbook at the quilt museum. So glad we went, definitely would go back, but make sure to call for reservations. They are not required, but it will save you quite a wait.... More

The menu is the same as Patti's, right next door, actually named after her husband Bill. Love those 2" Pork Chops at Patti's? They're also on the menu here. We live nearby and when company comes to stay with us, they usually get a night out here to experience this great restaurant. Pork chops to die for, giant baked potatoes,... More

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...
