This little hidden gem has a small menu but what they have is excellent! We have driven by numerous times and finally went in to try it. We were pleasantly surprised! The staff is very personable and friendly. The atmosphere is very laid back and informal. Kids are welcome. The music is old-school and beachy. Loved it!!!!!

The people there cooking aND waiting on customEra were super great people. The music was awesome and they were just down to earth fun and friendly. But the food and the prices were not great. I will not be going back. I gave the food a second chance.

The waitress Jennifer was the BEST server ever! She knew her customers by name, met some of them at the door with their drinks and knew what they wanted! She even trusted a young lady to bring payment back due to card service being down! I have NEVER seen such EXCEPTIONAL service! And the food was AMAZING!!

We stopped in while traveling after reading some reviews. We were not disappointed. The server was fast, friendly and offered us the special. The burgers were juicy and cooked perfectly. I had mine "all the way" with slaw on it. All I can say is " oh my goodness!". The bathrooms left a lot to be desired but the food... More

Love this place. You must get an order of fried pickles if you go! Don't forget to get yourself a Fat Cat's basket (great hamburger!). My husband and I used to eat here a lot, but we don't go out as often now, but still visit sometimes!

I ate at Fat Cat's for the lst time last evening. The experience was awful from start to finish. The waitress was terrible and could only carry one thing from the kitchen at a time. Some things we asked for, we never got. The food was cold so we sent it back. When it came back it was hot, right... More
