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

I've been as a couple and in a group. I have loved almost everything. I will add this caveat, The Tex Mex dishes (duck taco's, nacho's, etc) are, in my opinion, not good. Absolutely everything else I've gotten, most recently, shrimp, lamb, crayfish, heirloom tomato, fritters, etc has been excellent. The drinks are all fun too! I agree with a... More

We visited with friends and passed dishes, as suggested by the waiter and on the menu. Everything we tried was excellent, and the drinks were unique, but outstanding. Will definitely visit again.

This place is a nice change from the other places in town. This place is a ‘small plates’ restaurant. The prices are a bit higher than other places in town, but well worth it. Save it for a special occasion and you wont be disappointed. Menu is constantly changing with seasonal, local offerings.

Foodies looking for inspired, creative dining featuring excellent ingredients and the work of an outstanding chef can sometimes find themselves with very limited choices in north central Wisconsin. That's why we were so excited to find a top-flight tapas menu that competes with some of the best that we've enjoyed in Spain, where tapas rules. The cuisine at Father Fats... More

On a recent road trip I decided to give Father Fats a try. I assumed since Christian and Leah are running the show, it would definitely be different. I like the tapas concept, small dishes to nosh on while you drink and chit chat amongst friends. The place has a contemporary decor with eclectic music playing in the background. They... More
