We were delighted to visit! We were visiting friends and they treated us to a delicious meal! Our waitress, Monica, was an angel! Her dress was from the Renaissance period and she was charming! What a memory she has as she recited the whole dessert menu--WOW! We were too full after our dinner to enjoy any dessert, but it was... More

This restaurant is very unique. All workers were dressed in period dress. We had reservations; therefore we did not have to wait but a very short time to be seated. Entrees were good. Disappointed in the dessert. There were 4 of us. Each of us got a different one and wasn't overly impressed with either. However, we were very impressed... More

We ate at Mr Bill'so, the annex to Patti's Restaurant....same food, same kitchen. We ordered the 1 inch pork chops and the apples pork loin. Both were done to perfection and came with a salad and a side. The garden salad and the spinach salad were both delightful, but the mixed vegetables were overcooked and mushy...our only disappointment. We ordered... More

Delicious food! Beautiful area! Charming decor! Fun gift shop! Epic southern hospitality! Those are just a few ways to describe our experience at Patti's! We had a party of 6 and had a very short wait, despite the busy atmosphere! The service was kind, efficient, helpful and personable-- a perfect portrait of southern hospitality. Some of our food faves are...... More

Been here before. Excellent food and a complete dining experience. The atmosphere is like none other. Food is divine, staff is friendly, and servers are attentive. The flower pot bread and strawberry butter are the bomb! 2 inch porkchops and mile high pies cannot be beat. I love, love, love this place!!

Waitress uninterested in working--Neither rude nor polite. Very, very slow in taking our order, bringing our check, returning with our receipt. Food came fast enough when ordered. Chicken sandwich, Chicken BLT, and hot brown good but the latter was very salty. When food arrived, I thought orders wrong. Looked like casseroles with crumbs on top. The crumbs were potato chips....

We had the most delicious meal. Ordered 1 inch pork chops and baked potatoes. You can not go wrong eating at Pattie's. After dinner we walked around the grounds and shops. What a wonderful way to spend the evening. Love this place.

We have been stopping at Patti's for a Hot Brown and piece of delicious pie since the 1980s on our travels between East Tennessee and Central Illinois. We have always enjoyed the food but I'm afraid we've made our last trip to Grand Rivers KY. We made a quick detour on our way home from the Cubs/Cards game and got... More

It is interesting The pork chop my son got was massive but done very well. Nothing innovative with the food. It seemed fresh and plenty of it. I went once but probably wouldn't go out of way to go back. The staff were great, attentive and friendly no complaints there.
