I'm vegetarian, and usually have trouble finding good food at bars, but Fat Fish has many delicious options. My favorite is the pimento grilled cheese. Besides the awesome... read more

The music was great, the service was good, and the food was good. All of which added up to a very enjoyable evening. Looking forward to the next time at the Fat Fish Pub.

Nice decor- historic rehabbed building- exposed brick walls, they pour a good drink and have free popcorn machine- bartenders are friendly and drinks are good and @ a fair price- fun and a great place to talk if a band is not performing but when a band is- they are usually pretty good . It is an intimate little bar... More

There aren't many reasons to visit Galesburg, IL anymore, unless you have kids in college or you're a train buff. If indeed you find yourself in the dried up little town, make It a point to stop in for a pint of the coldest craft beer in town. Great little venue for concerts, always a great seat, nicely decorated and... More

No food served, but heard a good band while having a glass of wine. Plenty of room to dance, and pleasant people sharing tables.

The bartender could have known a bit more about the product he was selling, but the choice in beers was stellar. Sawtooth and Smithwick's on tap. Popcorn machine. Live music.
