A great NON-SMOKING restaurant!

Finally... a place in FL that does not allow smoking inside! Fat Cat Tavern has decent food (not great, but it is a "tavern") and happy hour prices. Been there a few times and it is always busy.

Great drink specials, great food (gotta try the indiana-style pork tenderloin!), fun BUZZ trivia, live band Friday nights, Karaoke on Thursdays and Saturdays (nights). Servers are upbeat and friendly, food is served quickly and hot. Friendly atmosphere. Pool tables, darts and HUGE jenga games.

We recently moved to Largo and googled for places to eat. This establishment popped up almost immediately, so we thought...gotta be good! OMG, much to our amazement, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on Friday and went back for lunch on Saturday! Great drink specials throughout the week. But note...they are in the shopping center (behind Burger King) heading west, just... More

I had past by the former location multiple times thinking it was just another rundown dive bar in Largo. So when my sister in law suggested it, I was less than enthusiastic about going last night. So my sister in law, my wife, our baby, and I went for trivia last night. We were quick to a table with highchair.... More

I have NEVER had a bad meal here and their new location has so much more room! Had the Portobello Mushroom Burger tonight and it was excellent. They always have a special for the day and some nights, fun activities for the group.

This is a very good neighborhood tavern. Even if you don't consume alcohol the food is well worth the visit. Decent sized menu and very good service.

My husband, and his lively work crew of about 10, had a going away get together this Friday. The prices for specials were low, the salad and chicken fingers were perfectly cooked and our server, Gina, was highly in tune with the needs of this slightly obnoxious group. There were games (pool, bowling, life size jenga), a large bar, high... More

Ordered codfish dinner for me, they were out of cod. Wife ordered portabellos, I settled for a cheddar burger Medium. Burger was closer to well done but as we hadn't eaten... More

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....
