Mr. Bill's Restaurant started in 1990, and was named for our father, as he was tired of being called Mr. Patti. Because we keep growing, Bill's has become another dining room of Patti's with the same menu, service and atmosphere with stained glass, rough cedar, quilts and antiques. Mr. Bill's is especially great for larger parties with a seating capacity of 100 in the main room, 225 over all.

"Patti's 1880's has been added to our list of fine food emporiums worth driving miles to visit. All the food is fresh and carefully prepared... their sawdust pie (is a) culinary delight. For searchers of fine restaurants', this is worth the trip." (The Jackson Sun)
