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!

I must admit, this little place has the best hamburger in town. Lots of variety. My favorite is the Cajun Burger. The price is fantastic. They have trivia nights, karaoke and more. A real fun place to be. Lots of TV's for sports. (One tv right in the middle was on Fox News, which I feel is a bit tacky,... More

Clearwater residents (i'm one of them) are fortunate to have the Fat Cat as a neighborhood watering hole. Like most of these places, they offer numerous televisions, a busy bar area, booths for eating, music and kereoke, and a nice size separate party room. What sets this place above many others is the friendliness of their waitresses, and the selection... More

My cousin is a regular here. She took me while I was in town because they have Buzztime Trivia. We went around 9:30 on a Saturday night and the place was very quiet. But we still had a nice time. The beer was cold. The food was hot. The fried mushrooms could have been a little crispier for my tastes.... More
