I decided to go back to this establishment for my birthday last night. My friends and I enjoy dancing and it is one of the few places you can dance without a cover. I went there despite the horrible experience I had a few years ago. We had just gotten there and went upstairs and they threw out our designated... More

The service was poor. The place and certain regular customers was very loud. It took a very long time to be served and then to get drinks.i felt the establishment was somewhat dirty, dark and very up appealing.

Stopped by midday for drinks. Nice little place with a very diversified and expansive tap list. Very friendly bartenders and located right in the middle of everything downtown. Did not order food but many patrons seemed to enjoy their meals. Would definitely visit again.

Fat Belly's is great. It has a great bar feel to it, with typical-but-delicious bar type food -- the wings are top-notch. Many options to choose from. Head directly upstairs and sit at the ice bar (a strip of ice running down the middle to keep your beer/drink cold... pretty cool) or sit at a big table with friends. You'll... More

The seating is a bit tight and the ambience is so-so. I've been told the dj is good at night but I can't imagine where anyone dances (upstairs has a little bit more room but not much). If you want a great burger (topped with almost anything you can imagine, or not), you can't top this place though.

Let me give you a little recipe for a fun time... Get a burger, grab a beer, add some cool people. But that isn't enough for you is it? You want options don't you? You want different toppings for that burger, maybe you want a qusadilla or wings too. Maybe you want the sauce that goes on the wings... on... More

Went here few years back and decided to go again - just love the wings and fried pickles! They are to die for! Large orders and enough for 2 to share! Waitress was only one waiting on tables - and she was super! Totally had very thing under control. Fun place and food is delicious.
