    Patties never disappoints! We do a yearly trip to look at the lights and this year we took the grandkids and they had a blast. Make sure you make a reservation this time of year! We had the best waitress, she did an awesome job and would definitely pick her every time if I had a choice.

    The food tasted well. It was my girlfriend’s and I’s first time there, our server did not look nor barely spoke to my girlfriend and it made it seem as if she did not like African Americans. It made us leave sooner than we wanted, we didn’t even finish our food and made us not want to come back

    The quality is not what it used to be. We planned our trip to Kentucky Lake based on staying close to the restaurant. We were disappointed in the difference in the homemade bread. It did not have the same taste that it used to have. It took a long time for the server to come for our drink order, then the bread did not make it to the table until after the appetizer was finished. It was not a busy time for the restaurant so service should have been better. Given the price of the food a higher quality should be a must. Nothing was to the point that we wanted to speak with a manager, but we would not spend that kind of money again for just mediocre food and service. Such a shame because this was one of our favorite places to meet friends for a long weekend.

    Food was delicious. Service was great. Room decor was pretty. Our reason for not giving a 5 is because we feel that when an adult couple come to dine that being placed in a room with large family it becomes loud. It ruins the ambience.

    Paige our waitress disappeared! I had to ask someone to find her! We had to ask for bread! She came back and smelled like smoke! We were out of drinks and waiting to order dessert! While she was smoking! My bill for 2 was 120$ outrageous! She didn’t explain the extra charge for broccoli 4.99 never again! She left the bill and disappeared again! I was about to call the front desk to see how we could pay and get out of there! She didn’t explain all the up charges and changed! I do understand the price of everything has increased and I don’t mind paying especially if I have a great waitress! I visit every year driving 2 hours and sadly I have to say my tradition is changing next year! It was the worst experience Friday! I really hate that! My friend ordered pie later for take out and she waited and waited! So she went to the desk to ask how much longer and the girl never sent the order back! Sorry to complain because I love coming there every year but I’m declining next time! I would gladly speak to someone if they would like to talk to me! I’m sure nothing will be done! I totally understand I just hope and wish things could of been different!

    Something has happened at Patti's. This was our second sub-par pork chop trip. Service, great. Salads? Bread? Great. Center of attention pork chop? Sad. No "color" to speak of. Overly pink, and oddly dry at the same time. Dessert....got the crumble apple pie and crust wasn't cooked...not sure it was even made in-house. Doubt we're rushing back. Sorry to say that. Loved them for sooo many years.

    We were very pleased with our waitress. She responded well to all our requests. The salads were fresh and tasty. The decorations were so splendid that we did not mind waiting for the main dishes. We were not rushed at all and had plenty of time to visit with our friends (who also drove two hours to get there.)

    There was 5 in our party. The food was great for four of us but one of our party (whose birthday it was) ordered the pork loin and it was very dry. They brought some sauce but it was just so dry she couldn’t eat it. That was very disappointing because it was kind of a pricey meal to be disappointed in it. Patties has been one of my very favorite places for years . We had to travel for 4 hours just to eat there.

    Excellent experience as usual! We typically come several times a year and at least once during Christmas! Our 7 year old always enjoys the Christmas lights! His birthday is next week so the staff also sang to him which he loved! Thanks for being a great establishment where we're able to create memories!

    The atmosphere is never a disappointment. It can be busy and loud. The food, honestly wasn't as good as I remember it. You get a lot but for the cost, it was nothing amazing but the price of everything has gone up. The shops are expensive and I was unimpressed by the addition of alcohol but it's good profit for the company. Overall, my memories of it are better than the current experience but nothing stays the same, maybe I'll try again in a few more years.

    I do not want to be rude by any means. The lights and staff are amazing! Patti's is an Annual tradition for us. Unfortunately our food was awful. I had the shrimp skewer and rice, I should have stuck with the porkchop. Our server did get the item comped and it was handled very well. I appreciate your establishment and will continue to return every year but I hope this review helps to guide the ones preparing it to take some corrective actions.
