Typical pub environment with above average pub menu

I've been to the Fat Squirrel on several occasions with different people, and the large and varied menu ensures that they have always found something on the menu that they are excited about. I have never taken anyone there who has been disappointed in their meal. I have had the turkey club... read more

Food here is great. The wait staff are nice and friendly. I was there during a trivia night and the host was pretty funny. Great assortment of beer.

Don't know what to say of zingers. I've been coming 6 1/2 yrs now (Am not in a liaison with the owner or staff!) Never had a disappointing meal or service. Admittedly I get mostly the Fish n Chips, but its because I've found none better in RR, let alone Albuquerque. Ya, the Chips were "off" for a short while,... More

My husband and I received a referral to eat at the Fat Squirrel Pub & Grille before a show at the Santa Ana Star Center. We were excited to try a new place after reviewing their menu. We arrived promptly at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, 4/11 - 2 hours before our show began which was plenty of time for us... More

Service was a little slow but the food was excellent! The menu offers a large variety of choices. I have never had a bad meal here!

Overall, not bad. But nothing special. I wouldn't say go out of your way to come here, but if you're in the area, give it a shot!

Heard great reviews for Turtle Mountain so showed up at 6 PM on a Friday without reservations. Bad idea! 45 minute wait. So we asked for another recommendation and was given Fat Squirrel only a couple of blocks away. We drove there, found a parking space at the front door, walked in and immediately were seated. That should have been... More

Great place to meet up with friends. It was very quiet this Saturday at lunchtime. I had the Mussels special, which was good, but with way too much over-buttery broth. Good red ale beer too. But, the fare was average at best. Comfortable place, excellent service, and a geocache nearby!

This used to be one of my favorite places but the last two times I have been there the service has been poor to non-existent and the food has suffered as well. We ordered and 10 minutes later they told us that one of the options for my daughter was not available... really it took 10 minutes for you to... More

Food was good, but service is questionable at times. We have visited twice and noticed that the regulars seem to get served first.
