Very cool atmosphere, Some how it seems to encourage conversation. The food was very good as well. We will be back.

a place like this doesn't seem like it would do well in a smaller town, but everytime i've been here(except brunch) i had to wait for a table. of course, that would be because the food is amazing. it is a louisiana-styled tapas restaurant, basically you order a few small plates per person and share with your comrades. the service...

We have eatend abroad and in classy urban settings, but the food and presentation at Father Fats is equal to if not better than most of those meals---and right here in Portage County. Food is fresh, creatively prepared, and as local as they can get (some of the vegetables are actually grown on the property!). And then cap it off... More

When my wife and I want a memorable date, we go to Father Fats. No other place in town couples great food and service with the feeling that we're somehow not in the middle of our small Wisconsin town.

I'm a huge fan of tapas but they are hard to come by in Central Wisconsin. I went there with my boyfriend and we tried to keep it to just a couple items a piece but we just couldn't stop - the menu is so diverse & creative! Of everything we ate my favorite was the buttermilk waffles & fried... More

Father Fat's is a great tapas spot in downtown Stevens Point. The 6 of us ordered 7 different small plates and they were excellent. We had shrimp, lettuce wraps, tacos, flatbread, can't even remember the rest but it was all excellent. Chef Christian is a magician in the kitchen, Christian's Bistro is his signature place but Father Fats is just... More

Very tasty, friendly waitstaff. Varied menu including crab cakes and cheese boards. Great presentation. All this with the blues playing softly in the background

Father Fats is a fun restaurant in downtown Stevens Point. The menu is a sort of tapas menu with small dishes to share. They serve a lot of locally produced food. The bar is well stocked and they mix a wide range of delicious cocktails.

Met some of my college roommates here for a reunion dinner. It had been a long time since I had been in the area and was surprised to find this restaurant in the building that used to be an A&W root beer stand! The decor was very interesting, the server was attentive and the menu was so plentiful that all... More

We were in Stevens Point for a trade show and looked for different restaurants each night. We expected to find good food but not necessarily gourmet food. We were both surprised and ecstatic to find Father Fats. The chef trained under Emeril Lagasse and you can see the Cajun influences in the dishes. The menu changes every night and I... More
