Restaurant Update on Patti’s 1880’s Settlement Restaurant

Patti’s Restaurant is currently closed from the fire. As a very unique dining experience, Patti’s is trying to continue the tradition in the new building. They are recreating a place special to thousands of customers, and indeed the process takes extra time. Patti’s hopes to open late November and they are not yet able to take reservations. Please follow Patti’s Facebook page for further opening updates.

During this rebuilding time, the Settlement and Shops are OPEN. The Grist Mill Outdoor Cafe is open from 11am to 3pm (CLOSED Monday and Thursday) with Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Daily Specials, Patti’s Homemade Pie slices, and lots of other items. Their new Restaurant, T. Lawson’s Grill, is open and located across from Patti’s with a unique atmosphere and menu. T. Lawson’s is quickly becoming an area favorite.

Make Patti’s 1880’s Settlement and the Holiday Festival of Lights part of your Grand Rivers Christmas traditions. Find Patti’s on the web and on Facebook.
