Well this place is something to see. If you like lots of garland and lights and stuff hanging everywhere, you will love it. It is unique. But the food is just average. I was excited to see that they had so many deserts. Including 8 inch high meringue pies. But the pie we had was not that great. The Kentucky... More

This is a kitschy themed restaurant with a great menu. They are known for their 2" pork chops and bread served in flower pots with strawberry butter. One member of our party got the Chicken Oscar and it looked wonderful! It's pricey, but the portions are large. It seems to be popular for special occasions as anniversaries and birthdays were...

We were seated for lunch a few minutes earlier than our reservation. Server was friendly and attentive. My husband had the pork chop which he enjoyed. My shrimp was crunchy without being greasy and the hush puppies were excellent. The homemade bread was served warm with delicious strawberry butter. The hot bacon dressing on spinach salad was delicious. He really... More

I had the tropical chicken with a salad, broccoli and flowerpot bread and the Boo Boo Pie...it was all delicious. The atmosphere is over the top whimsical with flowers and little lights everywhere...made for a fun experience. The hostess and wait staff were welcoming and professional. Reservations are preferred for lunch and absolutely necessary for dinner...that's how popular the place... More

We were last here 20 years ago, We loved it then and the place has only gotten better. You can spend some time here just looking around, but the food is excellent. They have a wide menu selection, and the service is great. You also could spend an hour in the gift shop.

The good: Salad, salad dressing, friendliness of staff, cleanliness of establishment. The bad: The pork chop (mine, my husband's, and my son's) often tasted like what a hog farm smells like. A few bites were okay, but the rest was awful. My steak fries were actually three small unseasoned, over cooked potato wedges. The bread comes in flower pots, which... More

This restaurant is an event. It is on the grounds of Patti's 1880 Settlement which has fountains, pathways, shops and a small zoo. It is immensely popular and it is advisable to make reservations. The decorations inside are very eclectic. There are tons of memorabilia everywhere. The restaurant has a very cozy feel because there are all sorts of side... More

This restaurant has it all, service and the food. The portions are large and very tasty. You will get full and still be able to take some home. It is moderately priced but worth every penny. The bread with the strawberry butter is excellent. I always get the seafood pasta which is great but my friends like the pork chops.... More
