Went to fat sams with my wife and two kids. We didn't book, the place was full but the staff kindly led us to a ''holding area'' for some refreshments while we waited for a table. I had the hot chicken wraps which was absolutely delicious and the chips were also lovely (although they came ready salted which although i... More

the spicy chicken wings are lovely and the food portions are very big, and the service good. Can get busy later on in the evening so you might have to wait for a table.

Great food, the restaurant was extremely busy and I am glad we got there early for a seat, anyone who arrived after 7.30pm had to wait 20-30 mins. The portions are huge and the service was friendly. The only downfall is that we found it to be slightly over priced.

Amazing restaurant! Puts other american diner style restaurants to shame!! Staff are friendly and attentive. All the little quirky signs etc are great to look at when you're waiting for your food, really lovely, fun atmosphere. I ordered ribs and I figured they'd take ages but after polishing off the FREE nachos you get when you sit down, they arrived... More

Ate here as a family of four (14 and 21). Similar to TGI Friday . Good food - worth the wait . Tip - if you are not all totally starving then 3 dishes would easily feed 4 people.

Fat Sams is a sister restaurant to Boston O Bradys and is a very busy restaurant. Its themed similar to a TGI Fridays. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Big portions too. The loaded potato skins are delicious. I had the New york strip steak and it came with pepper sauce, onion rings, mushrooms and you can have... More

This was our 5th holiday visit to Fat Sams. If you like flame grilled meat this is the place to come to. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The highlight of the night was the look on the faces of the 8 young men on the next table when their burger meals were served. They were massive.

Great service, Great food. Only downside is the fact that there is only 1 toilet to service a fairly large restaurant. Food good value for money and plenty of it. Only 1 piece of advice: don't have a a starter if you want to finish your main course.
