Good food

I ordered the grilled chicken lunch special. Very juicy and flavorful. Chicken breast was on the smaller side but the French fries were plentiful and delicious. The pepperoni pizza was good and my children enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs and the mozzarella sticks. Would go again.

After exploring the area, we chose Fat Tony's as our spot for dinner, and we are so glad we did! The service was awesome, and the food was delicious! My lasagna was some of the best I have ever eaten! My son & his friend were pleased with the beer & wine selection, as well as their meal. Definitely a... More

Looks nice. Neon sign says river front seating. Asked for river front seating. I was told the seats were wet. So, I encouraged them to wipe off the seats. I get back there.. there is no river. It's a giant apartment building view. The drinks were WEAK at best. I even went for the premium bloody. Yah. Two little quarter... More

Some of the best pizza I've had in all my trips to North Carolina! Could use a little more wait staff.

We stopped in for the pizza, which was delicious! But the meatball stuffed mushrooms were to die for! I regret not going back a second time to have them before heading home. The meat is perfectly seasoned and they are in a buttery, garlicky sauce! Wow!

Went to the bar waiting for a table on the deck. Bar tenders were so nice we spent our evening there. Gave us samples of their drafts so we could make educated and delicious choices. And they have a lot of beer choices, many local or in State. Had informative conversation with bar tender re: the micro brew industry in... More

You know you had a great pizza when you think about how good it was over and over again. My husband and I stopped in for lunch one afternoon and opted to sit outside in the back. I don't know how they do it, but the crust on their pizza was epic. Add to the mix a pitcher of beer... More

We ate only appetizers (4 of them). They were all awesome!!!! Thw onlyy thing that we disliked is that in the menu says that some appetizers are 1/2 price from 3-6 pm, it does not clarify that is only for the Bar and Barrel seating.
