Really Good Food at Good Price

My husband and I stopped by here on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch and some cocktails. Above all else, it's simply really good food with large-sized portions at a decent price. My husband had a full rack of ribs with fries and coleslaw. (He didn't really need the full rack, but was able... read more

If you ar looking for that romantic night out just you and your honey, could be the wrong place. If you wand a heaping plate of gourmand comfort food this is the place. Dress casual.in the evening or arrive early with friends and go sit at the bar. It's one of my favorite 0 laces in quincy RB

Absolutely fabulous food. Large quantity. Many options to chose from. A bit noisy for business. Service is great.

This is the best place to eat in town. Large portions (Be careful with the Mac+Cheese) and a friendly wait staff. The downside to this place is that it is small and there is always a wait... but well worth it.

My husband and I enjoyed a nice meal with our adult son at the Fat Cat. The restaurant is quite small so expect a wait. Warning! They do not take reservations, so plan accordingly. There is a bar on one side with reasonably priced drinks (nice portion draft beer $5) and a series of tables on the other side of... More

This small restaurant is nothing fancy, but the food is good. My husband ordered a Corona ($4.50) and I had The Pink Panther ($9.50) one of their signature drinks...all named after cats. Then we shared the Blue Crab Cake appetizer ($10) 3 crab cakes with cajun remoulade. There could have been more crab in the crab cakes, but they were... More

Let me start by saying if you're counting carbs or calories this is probably not the restaurant for you. But, if you're feeling like a decadent cheat meal then you could do a lot worse than The Fat Cat. The mac and cheese is famous and massive (the price tag might be a little high but you'll be eating it... More

After walking by this place for nearly a week and seeing that it was always packed, we decided to stop in for lunch one day. We order nachos and a burger. Both were delicious. Definitely one of the best in Quincy.
