“Great food with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I noticed Fatz has many locations in northern states, but had never tried it. I have to say, I had a great first experience in this location. The waiter was just amazing. Always checking on us and asking if we were doing okay. And when he found out it was our first time at Fatz, he went and got us a free sample of their famous chicken fingers. And to my surprise, the manager of the location came to greet us with the sample. That was a great touch!

The food was delicious! The poppy seed bread is amazing! And of course the chicken fingers were great.

It's a nice place to eat a causal meal with friends and family.

“It's OK.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

FATZ is an OK restaurant but the food is just average. It's OK for just a routine meal out during the week, but not for any kind of special occasion. The salmon is my usual choice and is reliable.

“Didn't want to go chain - but so glad I did!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

After trying to get in at several local restaurants, we happened upon Fatz. The service was spectacular, the menu options were endless, and the food was great! Wish they had one in my hometown!

“good food and a good variety to pick from”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Very good food but could have been warmer. Very close to our hotel, Country Inn and Suites. We walked there but had to walk on narrow two lane road and cut through parking lots. Probably not the best idea when it is dark!!
