Good mid scale family-run place

An odd niche between upscale restaurant and breakfast diner, but with consistently good food. Go for the specials at dinner.

Our kids raved about this place so my wife and I tried it for lunch. Food was OK but not special. The price was unexpectedly high. Overall experience was just meh.

Nightmare for parking. I just drive on by now and go elsewhere. Pricey for regular food. Just my opinion

First time "Brunching" here. Wasn't overly crowded (it was a Wednesday morning) but there was a large special party in arear room. We had eggs Benedict coffee and a very good Bloody Mary. Not too hot not too mild. Service was fast and courteous. Food was good and drinks mixed well. Looks like an ideal type place for larger groups.... More

We have been to The Fatted Calf 4 times - all for breakfast. I can't speak for the dinner menu, but we LOVE the breakfast. The service is great, the food is fresh and the complimentary strawberry preserves are wonderful. Biscuits and gravy are great, the Eggs Benedict is great and the Breakfast sandwich is very tasty. I highly recommend... More

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
