Good home cooked food at a good price.

Great place to drop in for a good meal at a good price. Portions are never skimpy and food is always good. Eat hear often for a casual meal.

Service, quality & value all riled into one. Locally owned, operated & friendly rolled into one. Older building lacking esthetics, but easy to overlook.

Thanks to the staff at Fat Willy's for excellent service and good food during our visit. We never would have found you without the reviews on Tripadvisor, but we're sure glad we stopped in. The walleye was done very well and the loaded potato soup was excellent.

Once a month I go on Thursday for 1/2 price pizza. All the pizzas and topping are 1/2 price. The pizzas are thin crust and good with cold beer on tap or bottles. On Wednesday it's all you can eat Walleye (a very good value). They feature a full bar and prices for food and libation are modest.

The staff is friendly and the cooks do a great job. In fact if you sit in the bar area you can watch them in action. The boss is usually there... More

For home town bar food with a relaxed atmosphere Fat Willy's is a great place. The salads are immense and a great value. Pizza is good and we very often go for the walleye.

This is small and decent restaurant. Have eaten there a number of times. The best dish is the horseshoe. The meat and fries are good and sauce is decent, not real flavorful because it is a white sauce and the original horseshoe sauce has a cheddar like flavor. Very disappointed in the fried chicken dish. The chicken was fresh and... More
