so disappointing. Food is well below average. Flies in the restaurant and poor service...and that was in an empty restaurant. This restaurant's time has past.

I absolutely LOVE coming to Fat Freddy's with my friends! The atmosphere and food are great, it's so relaxed and upbeat. The staff are really good fun too! Especially the guy with longish hair! Not sure of his name but he's very welcoming and helpful! Great place to go to sit out and people watch too by Quay Street

Got caught walking around Galway with 3 hungry children + 1 boisterous dog, then realized how limited my eating options were :-). Passing by Fat Freddy's I asked if we could dine outside with our pet. No Problem. As it was a cold day, they switched on the outside heaters, provided cushions and lap-blankets for us. The Pizza was excellent... More

Myself & my fiance dropped into Fat Freddys last week one evening after work. I had the two course deal for €16.95. The starter was fine but to my horror as I was eating my pizza I discovered I was chewing glass in my mouth! I actually had bitten down on the glass and swallowed small pieces. I managed to... More

Awesome food. Vegan Quesadillas were so good Very cute decorations around the entire restaurant. The staff was attentive and quick. A little on the pricey side but worth every cent!

My wife and I spent a very pleasant few days in Galway just before Christmas. We dropped in to Fat Freddy's for a bite to see what the place was like in the Winter as previous experiences were in the Summer. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was terrific and very "Christmassy", the staff wonderful and most importantly, the food... More
