Excellent family meal in a fairy-tale setting. The grounds were magical with amazing plants, trees, waterways and a myriad of twinkling lights. After we enjoyed that, we had an amazing meal with excellent service. Loved it!

I got the Loaded Potato Chips and the Mile High Lemon Meringue Pie and they were amazing. This chips should be called mile high as well, I couldn't finish the entire plate in one sitting which was to bad because they were delicious. But it's the pie that's the real star of the meal. The meringue is piled high and... More

All the locals exclaimed, "Man, those CA cats are crazy"! Today it is truly a destination,... More

My family and I have enjoyed Patti's for forty years. They began as a small hamburger joint and ended up a gourmet restaurant of some renown. Located at beautiful Grand Rivers, Kentucky (boat marina, condos for rent, camping in area, etc.) there are many activities for family: boating, fishing, swimming, skiing, shopping, antique shops, etc., but most go for one...

We came in the middle of the afternoon for a late lunch. We had a few minutes wait to be seated but couldn't figure out why as the place had many open tables at the time. The service was were friendly and attentive. We opted for open face sandwiches which were excellent. They are known for their desserts. They are... More

Excellent food. Loved the beef. Loved the veggies. Loved, loved, loved the desserts. Be careful with the pork if you aren't a salt fan though. Wait staff is great too. Take the kids and enjoy all that it has to offer.

We are always amazed by the colorful and warm decorations at Patti's. Yesterday, I enjoyed Don's Chicken and my husband had a pork tenderloin. I recommend the loaded baked potato, which is a meal in itself. We also ordered sides of sautéed mushrooms - magnificent! We also had the Shrimp Bake appetizer, which was scrumptious. I am even impressed with... More

Long wait without reservations, but expected. Service was great, once seated, appetizers, salads and meal followed closely. We did not have dessert, but the list of pies sounded awesome!

Just spent a few days with friends at Lake Barkley. Heard about Patty's and went for dinner. Reservations are a must (even on a Tuesday). Food was very good from the flower pot bread with strawberry butter to the 2 inch pork chop. Not inexpensive but large portions and good food. Surrounded by shops and garden walkways. I'm definitely not... More
