Delicious Food

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

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
