the wait staff is professional and courteous. the atmosphere is friendly. the food is typical pub food with a upscale twist that falls short. the drinks are also nothing special. this would be a safe alternative if you're in a jam but you wouldn't be impressing anyone by taking them there.

I tried fat cat after seeing them on phantom gourmet. I was not disappointed, in fact it's become one of my favorite spots. It's rather small and gets crowded but worth it!! I recommend the blackened chicken pasta, but everything have tried is delicious! !

Stopped in because the reviews were so good. We were not disappointed. Had a burger which was very well cooked and buffalo fries. The wife had a chicken wrap which she said was delicious. Beers on tap were cold and delicious!

We loved our HUGE portions of delicious food! Hubby had pulled pork, and I had turkey BLT wrap! Everything was delicious...very crowded, even with street blocked due to construction. You should go!

I was in the mood for a burger but I'm quite picky. I believe a great burger consists of quality ground beef and a quality bun. Well they delivered!! Cooked just right and the Cajon fries were awesome! Service was friendly and attentive. Plus they have a great beer selection. Very satisfied!!!
