Waitress was friendly. Food was below drive thru quality. Bring you out a baskets of rolls. They were rubber. They rave about the chicken strips. And shockingly the chicken strips were the only decent part of the meal. Nothing at all special about them. Salads were awful. Coleslaw was heavy and over seasoned. Loaded potato soup lacked potatoes.

We ate there once, Sept 2013, and would never eat there again. Started off with two clam chowders which included no visible clams. Then ordered two single Fatz's fish. Definitely not cooked properly and was inedible. The response of the waitress, when she saw that 3/4 of our meals were left, was "did you have enough". Enough said, the service... More

My sons Caesar salad had a large piece of cellophane type plastic in it. He actually bit into it and began to choke. The shrimp & grits which used to be fabulous were just meh. Quality not the same.

My wife and I met our daughter's family at the Fatz Cafe in Rockingham. Previous visits to the Fatz located in Camden SC and Columbia SC had left an unpleasant experience for us. This one in Rockingham was totally a joy - great service and great tasting food. We often go through Rockingham on our way to Raleigh, and will... More

I ordered the chicken wrap and cheese fries and it was excellent. The rolls are so delicious. The food came out fast. My server was awesome. Only down-side was the restaurant had many dirty tables and the bathroom wasn't clean. They need a new manager.

We found Fatz to be a clean and fun place to eat during our stay in Rockingham for the 2014 U.S. Open golf tournament. We ate there three times and each time the food was served with little delay and tasted fresh and well prepared. The hostess, bartender and server were all friendly and professional. This was our first experience... More

I have eaten here many times in the past, but this experience was just unbelievable. We had dinner here on April 11, 2014. The salads were just so fresh and completely done. My companion had the beef tenderloin tips dinner. The meat was not very tender, and fatty. She did not eat very much of her dinner-that's when the waitress... More

The staff in Fatz, Rockingham are wonderful. They are efficient, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our evening with them. They chatted with us but did not intrude. The food was excellent.

Our waitress was fine, but when I ask for a baked potato, she said they were out until 7:00pm. It was then 6:50, but the loaded mashed potatoes were good. The steak was good, but nothing special.
