Description: Serving Funky Southeast Asian Inspired Cuisine!We serve our food in an unconventional manner, where there are no appetizers or entrees. The food comes out of the kitchen as it is prepared by the Chef. Therefore, we recommend ordering several dishes off of the menu and encourage sharing. Our cuisine is made up of locally sourced ingredients when available. Our flavor profiles are comprised of spice, sweet, sour, salty, and savory. Our cocktails are just as flavorful and as interesting as our cuisine. All of our wines were sourced from Michael Skurnik Wines and were hand-picked by Michael himself. The wines were selected to complement the wide variety of flavors in our cuisine and they were shipped in temperature controlled containers to ensure the integrity of the wines.We believe this style of dining creates an intimate, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. We serve sophisticated dishes in an unpretentious manner.If you are a diner looking for a traditional dining experience, there are lots of other great restaurants on island, come in for a drink and we'll recommend a few.Live well and be happy!

We ate at Fatty Crab knowing we'd get a good meal. What we got was a GREAT meal. We ordered the Volcano sushi roll that rivaled any sushi we've had. The pork belly with watermelon and pickled watermelon rind was so damn tasty and well prepared I told our waiter it was "stupid good"! The music being played in the... More

if you go, do not order the fatty sliders; meat very tough. Food comes out at different times, so some of our group were finished eating before the rest of the food arrived. Bar area looked cool with flat screen tv's.

My wife and I came back to St. John's for more r&r and Fattycrab was our favorite again!!! Great food, great atmosphere, killer drinks. We ate at the bar this time and it was fabulous. And if u go on Saturday night you get a discount on Sunday brunch!

They did an outstanding job for our family. We brought in fish that we had caught earlier in the day and they prepared several unique dishes and courses for us to eat. They bent over backwards taking care of the kids as well. The staff was patient, friendly, and fun.

We watched the Colts vs. Patriots in January 2015 here. The bar is great and the food is tasty. We had a spicy tuna role, seafood ramen and salt and pepper calamari.

Very oily. Ordered a fried rice and a lo mein. Because it took so long to get our take out, they offered free beer...nice. However, due to the amount of oil they used, we would not revisit.

Fatty crab delivery service is just what we needed on St. John! With a new and extensive menu fatty is offering delivery service all the way to gift hill! Delivery only took 8 minutes from prep time and my food was still hot and delicious. Now im eating tapas style food in my bed on a rainy day :-) A... More

The sushi was excellent, as was the daily seared local fish special. The beef brisket was good, but nothing to write home about. It was a very relaxing meal, and as with most SJ places, no rush.

We really liked that there were many different choices on the menu. Everything was really good! Many dishes had a little kick to them - even my drink did! A chili infused tequila with watermelon juice - tasty but spicy! Service was great! Loved the atmosphere. We will definitely go back next trip!

The only chain restaurant on island. Also the only place we were disappointed in. All 4 dinners were average or below average.
