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.

The manager would not honor our $5 for $20 food purchase coupon on a $23.59 bill. They said the total $20 is for FOOD only. Drinks don't count as FOOD. Their cokes are $2.29 each. What a rip. False advertising.

This is one of our favorite places around, great food and cheap prices. Very clean, no smoking inside, perfect service and has buzztime trivia which is always fun. This is the place where the locals go.

This place is ok the tables are easy to trip off of. The food is just ok. Atmosphere is good. I usually have the wings they are great if you ask for them well done. I have gotten them pink at the joint. I don't drink so can't tell about the cocktails.

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.
