“Cool Cat Lite Bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We came for an early dinner, and loved the food, though the portions were on the small side. I loved the She Crab soup, but their bowl was the size of a cup elsewhere. We both liked the dumpling appeteaser and my better half loved the rock shrimp tacos, best since Mexico. The atmosphere was getting even better as the live music took off. Good vibe, tasty food, ok prices, especially for a historic district (except $4.50 for draft beer!? It was a No beer night). They did have some interesting drink offerings. We'll go back for another round soon.

“Truly Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Fat Cat Grill is relatively new by this name; and serves general american fare. The place is very large and is clean. We have eaten there a couple of times and the food is good and the portions are above average. The people are nice and the location is a block off the historical downtown or a block from 2 of the parks on the water (King Bay City Park and Hunter Springs). So it is convenient to eat and stroll. Nothing special, and not bad...

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I managed a wood burning grill for over 5 yrs. I know food, atmosphere. This is a must visit when in the area. I will drive over an hour to go eat here again soon just for the food.

“Great food and a great band”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and I ate here after a day on the water and the food was great and the jazz band there was very good. Our only complaint was as soon as we finsihed our food the waitress rushed our tab over as if they were ready to close. We would have stayed much longer if this had not happened. It was easily the best place we went in CR.
