There is a bar in the front and food served in the back. The food is cooked to order but try and keep your choice to the simple and the plain. The staff is always friendly but its their selection of cakes and pies that will make you happiest. They are commercially prepared but the restaurant has... read more

This place is owned by the same people Who owned Olympic Pizza. They serve Greek style pizza, which is not my preferred choice, but it is still good. They make a good spaghetti sauce as well. I find the prices to be a bit high, but nothing too extreme. The front bar area is very nice and a great place... More

My husband & I recently dined here for the first time. I thought it was strange that on a Friday night at 6:30pm, it was empty...found out why after seeing the dinner prices & what you actually get (I mean don't get). We had fine service & the food came quickly enough. I found the prices to be too steep... More

Fat Cat Grill and Bar has a great take-out menu. The restaurant itself is very clean and welcoming, the best spot for casual dining in Norwich. The servers are friendly and attentive. The food is a good blend of mediterranean favorites - pizza, calzones, grinders - and good seafood, sandwiches, burgers and salads. Whether we eat in, or take out,... More

Located where the old Blockbuster use to be. When you first walk in you are greeted by hostess, Going straight takes you to the bar located in front and sounded as they say " A goodtime was being had by all". Going to the right will take you to the restaurant portion in back. Upon being seated in back front... More

After a day at the Norwich Inn and Spa my daughter and I wanted a quick bite before heading home. Spoiled from being in robes all day, we wanted a casual restaurant that we could visit in comfy clothes. Someone at the Spa recommended Fat Cat Bar and Grill to my daughter and it was perfect for our purposes. The... More

I've eaten here several times and the food is decent, although I would never say that I am exactly wowwed by it. Took the family here the other night on the last trip and we ordered a large pizza with sausage, onion, and bacon, as well as a mozzarella, hamburger, gorgonzola calzone to split. The waitress was very friendly and... More

The Fat Cat Grill is in a strip mall type of building in downtown Norwich. We stumbled on this place after finding out the restaurant across the street was closed for the evening. What looked like just a bar from the front was totally deceiving upon entering the establishment. The front bar was filled by the 9-5 crowd blowing off... More
