No matter the day of the week be sure to make reservations. Patti's was a fun, eclectic experience. Fun to know the history and tour the gift shop while you are there. The pies have mile high meringue and the store has other goodies like homemade fugde, jams etc as well as souvenir type things. The food portions were generous,... More

I know everyone I talk to says how great Patty's is, but to me it was just average. I did get a 2 inch porkchop that you normally don't get anywhere else, but I was just not blown away. I guess one of the things that bothered me was the fact that I got to choose Steak Cut Fries, when... More

Our family visited Patti's for lunch to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious. All 10 of us enjoyed everything we ordered, especially the desserts. The waitress learned it was our anniversary and brought out a small cheesecake with a candle and all of the wait staff came out serenading us with "Let me call you Sweetheart"...it... More

This without a doubt was one of the finest restaurants we've ever dined in. The service was beyond exceptional, the food was incredible, and the Decor was amazing. If you are ever able to eat here, do not hesitate. We were visiting from Oregon , and drove a distance to go after the recommendation from a friend. Don't miss it!

Would have loved to try this place.....but a 2 hour wait notice from a less than nice hostess sent our group elsewhere. We had strolled through the gift shop the evening before. A couple of purchases there was all that Patti's got from us.

The food was not very good to me, I got the FAMOUS pork chop, it was SO salty, tough and chewy. The side salad was mediocre at best. It just seemed like what it is; the only place in miles to eat. We use to go 30 years ago and I remembered it being so good, but not anymore.

Been there 4 times this year and can't wait to go back! The pork chops are always so wonderful. The steaks are more tender than any steak house around!! Yes it is a bit pricy but you will leave here stuffed!

Just Fantastic! Home of the 2" Bone-in Pork Chop. It is perfect every time! Oh there are plenty of other items on this menu from a filet to a pork tenderloin to full size salads. But I just can't move past that fabulous porky chop!We didn't try an appetizer but they looked wonderful. The desserts are to die for. The... More

We went on a Wednesday night with reservations and still had to wait about 30 minutes.. Could not begin to say how many they can seat because there are a... More

Happened upon Patti's after driving through Land Between the Lakes. It is like a piece of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge dropped into Kentucky. Decor was awesome. Food was fantastic. Two inch thick pork chops - what can go wrong with that ! Several shops surround the restaurant. And their bread is cooked and served in a flower pot. Can't wait to go... More
