Patty’s burned down a year ago but you can still get great food, including their famous pork chop! They have a food trailer and plenty of outdoor but covered seating. Good daily specials too.

Unfortunately the building is gone, burned some time ago. Tried the vending vehicle and sandwiches were very good at reasonable prices. Do not know how this will be in the heart of winter though?? Waiting for it to re-open!More

DUE TO A FIRE OUR MAIN RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. We do have outdoor dining options available serving a 1" or 2" Pork Chop with two sides, Don's Chicken, Hamburgers and several other options. Open Daily 11am-8pm Our Settlement shops are open and we are selling homemade pies, breads, fudge and strawberry butter. Patti's 1880's Settlement is that special place where friends bring friends. Patti's and Mr. Bill's are upscale family dining - famous for a 2" pork chop, mile high meringue pies, flower pot bread, and strawberry butter. Patti's 1880's Settlement is located in the small town of Grand Rivers, KY located at the northern entrance of Land Between the Lakes between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.
