A popular restaurant and tourist destination in west Kentucky is breaking ground next month on a new building after a destructive fire in February temporarily halted operations. Patti's is an iconic attraction in the lakeside town of Grand Rivers, featuring decorative restaurants and shopping. Marketing Director Ann Martin says the new building will be more handicap accessible.


A popular destination in west Kentucky partially destroyed by a fire this week is offering a look at the damage. Patti’s 1880’s Settlement in Grand Rivers posted a video on Facebook walking through the restaurant where the fire broke out Monday morning. The video shows the burnt remains of the kitchen, aerial footage of the severely damaged roof and water and smoke damage in other areas. Marketing Director Ann Martin addressed the more than 200 employees that work at the restaurant.
