Stopped in for dinner and they had a large variety of their own and other beers. The food was great. Had the Pirogi's, Pepperoni Roll & Sandwich. The Sandwiches (Headwiches) are huge and delicious. All of the food was great. The place had a good crowd and great service. Would definitely recommend stopping in if in the area.

You are reading from a 20+ year Fat Head's veteran of over too many (and/or not able to) count. You can leave there stuffed, tanked, or both. If you were to close your eyes and pick a sandwich, beer, or appetizer, you will not be disappointed. I have a soul connection to the Original wings that I cannot and will... More

awesome food, could use more space. I didn't like how small the tables were for the 5 of us. Felt like we were sitting on top of everyone.

Stopped in for lunch on a cold Monday. I had a Mighty Fine Bovine sandwich and my son had a Chicken Little (both super) and we each picked a beer from the selection of about 2 dozen on tap. Yumm. Sunday night was a 45 minute wait (we didn't). Today was only a 15 minute wait.

I was referred to Fat Heads by another restaurant that had their brews on the menu. Be prepared for an 'understated' appearance -- okay, it's pretty dumpy - well, a lot dumpy but the beers are awesome and the food is terrific so close your eyes and enjoy! The bar tender was super helpful and since it wasn't slammed when... More

We went for lunch on a Saturday with no wait. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was enormous and very good. The best was the beer though. Tried the head hunter and fell in love. Took a growler home with me. Don't miss this place if in the area.

Stumbled onto the place and wandered in for a quick one and some relaxation. Great choice. Wonderful brews, good eats and great personnel. Could not have been more pleased.

I always heard my co workers talk about this place. So my wife and myself got in the truck and drove here. It is everything I heard. Great sandwiches, beer and really good service. It's a must stop.
