It wasn't real busy at 8am on a saturday but have seen lines out the door. Very diverse menu, great waitstaff and food was served very warm. Nice place on the square but... read more

We love this place. We usually visit once a week for breakfast or lunch. The food is excellent! The service isn't always the greatest, but the quality of the meals more than makes up for it.

There for a late breakfast. Food was excellent and portions were generous. Staff was delightful. I'll definitely return.

From the moment you walk in you feel the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Casual dining, reasonably priced with five star food. Extensive wine list with Sunday night wine special. The wait staff and management make you feel like family and you are being welcomed into their home. We have only been there for dinner, but I am sure other meals... More

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
