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!!!

Can't understand what all the fuss is about. The food is mediocre at best. I enjoy different cuisine but this is not worth the wait or the expense.

On my first visit, I thought I had found the perfect neighborhood restaurant Even though it wasn't in my neighborhood, it was worth the drive (and the wait) as my meal was fantastic. I've been to the Fat Cat on three different occasions. It would have been 4 had there not been a 90 minute wait on a Sunday at... More

We like to take walks and stop in at the fat guy for their spicy mussels and beer. So good, especially on a fall day. They'll give you plenty of bread to soak up the delicious juice in the dish. If you like mussels, i guarantee they'll be the best you've ever had. The place gets busy. The staff is... More
