I was passing by afterwork, I always see cars in the parking lot and decided to stop in. My friend ordered the New York strip and I had a cheeseburger. The strip came out overcooked and was barley edible. Over salted is an understatement. The cheeseburger was good, nothing special, but it's pretty difficult to mess up a regular cheeseburger....

I have heard what wonderful food they have and decided to try it out. I was forewarned that food is very slow getting out of the kitchen and while I can understand this on a busy weekend night, I was there at 12:50 on a Monday. There were only around 15 people there. There was one server and one bartender/slash... More

Went here for lunch with my husband, who ate there before with friends. Fast, friendly service, totally enjoyed my burger and the atmosphere. Looks like a nothing place from the outside, but bigger than you think once inside, lots of sports on TVs, but not loud. The A/C was cold and it felt great on a hot day. The shopping... More

Worst food ever. The cheeseburgers have no flavor, all you taste in the beet battered fish is beer, & the calamari tasted like it was old and gross.

This is known as a "sports bar", boasting 21 tv screens, trivia nights and other entertainment, and good prices on a variety of drinks. For us the main attraction is the food. It is fresh, well prepared and a lot of thought to the varied menu offerings. Especially good is the Chicken Piccata (yes, there are capers on it-and chicken... More

Have been here a number of times and usually it's decent but went last night...different story. We entered, sat at a dirty booth and proceeded to wait. About five minutes went by and a waitress showed up to let us know it would be a minute as there was a large group she was helping. Now, we all know what... More

Fat Cat is a local place, but doesn't have the feel of some local places that may make new comers and visitors feel like outsiders. The place is large and airy - nice big bar and plenty of booths and other seating. The service is always good too. The food is really the reason to go - they offer some... More

Fat Cat Tavern is the Largo spot for a great yet inexpensive lunch. With an entire page of specials - all just over $5 - you can't go wrong. Oh, and the quality is superb! Whether you order a hamburger or a salad, it is all great! It has turned out to be my team's "Friday" lunch spot!
