Best restaurant in Point!

Ever changing menu of small plates with a local and seasonal focus. Same Chef/owner as Christian's Bistro in Plover. Outdoor setting is nicer than indoor (summers only, of course). Can be a little noisy and crowded when they are busy. Food is great with a great variety. Creative drink menu... read more

Can be a little noisy and crowded when they are busy. Food is great with a great variety. Creative drink menu and good wine selection are also positives.

Up front, it's usually busy at desirable times and it isn't cheap if you eat everything you're likely to want to. That said we live Father Fats, super interesting menu and helpful staff. Try it if you haven't and go back if you have.

Usually is very busy, so you may have to wait to get a seat. Great Tappas place (variety of appetizers). You get to try a lot of different foods and share with whomever is with you. This way you don't have to commit to something you are uncertain you would like. Great way to get out of your comfort zone... More

One of the things that first drew me to this restaurant was the interesting menu. I ended up finally going with some of my girlfriends and I have to say that I see myself returning many times in the future. The service was phenomenal, and our server was very knowledgeable of all the menu items. I wish I could remember... More

This restaurant has the feel and quality that feels like it belongs in a much larger city. Every dish is fantastic and the service to match. Expect to dole out a bit more cash for this experience compared to other fine dining establishments in town (which you can cut down by not drinking) but it is worth it. The dishes... More

After trying his other restaurant, Christians Bistro in Plover we thought we would take the drive and give Father Fats a try, glad we did! They do not take reservations but we were seated right away at 7:00 on a Saturday night. Being a tapas place we were hoping they staggered the food delivery, which they did. Tables are small...

We went last night and was seated right away. The service was excellent. I had the Bruchetta and the Lamb meatballs which were beyond phenomenal. We were told that the plates are small and that two people could eat 4-5 plates. We both agreed that we would have been just fine with 3 plates. Very full. This is not the... More

Imaginative menu which changes daily. A concise wine and drinks list that covers the world and yet features local craft beer and spirits. This is a small plate menu mean for sharing. Some items - like the bacon wrapped scallops with cheddar biscuits and artisnal BBQ sauce are regular features (and the scallops were perfectly prepared). Other items change daily... More
