We'd put off trying the Fatted Calf because reviews weren't that positive. But, our experience was one of the best at a Rockwall downtown venue. We found it to be a good place to relax, have some drinks, listen to a guitarist and have really great food. I had the salmon and loved it. Limited menu with interesting combinations, but... More

We love eating at the downtown square restaurants. This is one of our favorite breakfast areas! Service is iffy depends on the waiter or waitress. Our last waiter was great but the one before that was horrible. Apparently he knew the people sitting behind us and decided to have a get together with them instead of getting us our drinks... More

Cozy place with good food, good drinks, and good entertainment. It's a nice place to go for some comfort food and a relaxing evening.

Never have visited for dinner but have been for breakfast and lunch. Their food tastes so fresh. A great alternative to places like IHOP or Denny's. Love their pancakes and bacon.

Arrived for breakfast was greeted, and was subsequently seated at a table of four. Wife ordered the egg sandwich minus the prosciutto and I ordered the omelet with spiced beef and hash browns. Omelette was devoid of any flavor as was the hash brown and my wife's egg sandwich look like a sandwich made with the sole of the shoe... More

I don't understand why The Fatted Calf isn't packed to the rafters every Tuesday night. You can't beat their half price burgers & $3.00 beers! Whether you want to be adventurous and try the Sonoma Burger with jalapeños, spinach & goat cheese, or stay closer to your comfort zone with The Pub Burger with bacon jam & carmelized onions, you...

No granola or yogurt even though it was on the menu. The pancakes were raw in the middle. The service was very poor. The silverware was dirty. Just no.

Cute rustic place, but mediocre food and service. We ordered the parfait, full Monty omelette, banana and pecan waffle, and blueberry pancake. The waiter forgot the parfait while we were waiting for the food so we never got to try it. The omelette was bland. The waffle was ok. The blueberry pancakes were undercooked in the middle but still pretty... More

A restaurant built on excellence and word of mouth. A gourmet delight. I wish I could eat here more often. And a holiday meal is out of this world. Plus the restaurant has a old world romantic vibe.

Love coming here. Food is always fabulous, although I'd love more allergy friendly options. (Dairy and nut free) Always fun to come eat and have drinks, and love that there are plenty of booths for seating. Brunch is fabulous- esp for the non allergy having crowd. (But difficult for me)
