Amazing Menu, Fresh & Local

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... read 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

Pros: Great service, fresh menu, amazing fire-cracker shrimp, Asian chicken lettuce, crisp, sparkling Riesling, flat bread to die for! Cons: Don't eat here if you are in a hurry or have a tight budget, it's worth the wait and I'd personally pay twice the price for food this nice!

We started off with a cheese board that was delicious, aged cheddar- yum! I tried the lamb meatball dish and my husband had the beef stir fry. Both were awesome- wish we had a place like this in Green Bay! Great flavor combinations, we will be back next time we are out this way again.

Father Fats is quite the unique choice for food. There are so many different options to choose from unlike other restaurants in the area. You can choose several platters and try a bit of each. On the last visit I had shark and the scallops. The presentation of the food is beautiful and the taste is even better. Their drink... More

Creative menu, love the tapas focus and we love to go and share. You will not be disappointed. We were there in October and enjoyed the decorations.
