Restaurants & Bars

New Patrick's, Memphis

We tried Patrick's last night at its new location at 4972 Park (at Mt. Moriah, the old Buntyn's location). Patrick is an old flying mate of mine in the Air National Guard, but thru 20+ years I've never been in his two former locations. Patrick's is a Meat & 3, with a bar. Seats 200+ and there seems to always be (as we drive by) a waiting line that goes out the door.
We found the food to be average -- nothing to write home about. Prices reasonable. Service was excellent. Surprisingly (at least to me), average age of the diners seemed to be 85+.
But with a packed house, the whole evening was ruined for many by this one table of 8, 4 being rowdly little boys about age 8. Parents made NO effort to shhhsush them thruout the meal; too busy with their beers. This seems to be a growing problem in "family" restaurants. ???
