The waitresses are always dressed in 1880's attire and the food is absolutely wonderful. My wife4 and I always opt for the pork chops. MMMM MMM yum. The flower pot bread with strawberry butter is so good. Pies with meringue so tall, you wonder how they managed to carry it without it falling off the pie. The pies and other... More

Can't go to Patti's without getting the 2" (or more realistic 1") pork chop!! Super moist and flavor packed. Fixings are prepared country style and very good. You can't stop there, desert menus is two pages on a very large menu. Very reasonable prices. Wait can be long so a reservation is suggested. Patti's village is an eclectic collection of... More

We found this gem of a restaurant over 20 years ago. It is still the best restaurant in the world to us. The 2" pork chop is to die for! A little pricey but well well worth it!

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in the area. The restaurant is always decorated lavishly for the season with thousands of lights throughout the restaurant. The food portions are large and delicious. They are famous for their pies, and it is very much deserved. All the pies are so delicious. They have a great... More

Patti's 1880's restaurant is a place for great food and undeniably unique atmosphere. Nice touches include their homemade flower pot bread served with homemade strawberry butter, servers dressed in 1880's attire, and, of course, genuine Southern hospitality. The decor always reflects the season of year and is second to none. I have tried several entrees, and all have been excellent,... More

Food was excellent. Restaurant decor is elaborate and you can browse the gift shop. The whole settlement was exciting to browse through.

Their signature dish is the 2 inch pork chop and they have a lot of other items on the menu as well. Everything i have every gotten there is really great. A... More

If you are driving more than an hour, stay home and go to Cracker Barrel- their food is better anyway. For starters, when you call, the staff is positively rude. I called 3 times with questions and to make a reservation and the women who answer were curt every time. In person the staff is not much better. They jacked... More
