My family went here to celebrate a birthday dinner and the food was fabulous! We all ordered different things from the menu and it was all very good food. My husband whose well traveled and has eaten at various places absolutely loved it. We will return

I am Gluten Free. It is so rare to find a place with GREAT Cider (Picket Bone Dry Cider by Arsenal) AND GREAT burgers with GF rolls. Finally a place I don't have to order a burger without the bun. Bar tenders are knowledgable and friendly. Homemade chips great. Coming again.

Those smokehouse wings may have been the best wings I have ever had! They are literally 2 wings in one. Between the delicious and the nice char taste & texture, these wings were amazing!

A few people told us to visit Fathead's - we are so glad we did! The sandwich combinations are unusual but delicious! And the portion sizes are very generous. Definitely worth a stop!

Visit this place frequently when looking for the big bar salad or sandwhich to go with one of the numerous draft beers available. Knowledgable and friendly staff, usually, especially behind the bar. Big portions and great choices to go with the beer.

This place is fantastic! Huge sandwiches, and a very large variety of them at that. Excellent burgers, topped pretty much anyway you can imagine. Great selection of beers and a great atmosphere. You can't go wrong at Fat Head's!

This is our "Go To" for my wife and I when we have a chance. I have been eating\drinking here since the late 90's. I have watched the place evolve and am impressed that the quality of the food, drink and staff has never wavered. I have had a vast amount of their menu, which has something for everyone. When...
