Been a frequent visitor to Fat Cat since it opened and it has maintained an excellent level of food, service and atmosphere for years. The founders/owners have done a remarkable job of staying true to their vision of pizza, desserts and wine. The pizza is a super thin crust style that is remarkably firm, regardless of what toppings you put... More

I have always enjoyed the food and wine here. It was one of my favorites. This time, the service was nonexistent, they got the orders wrong, pizza was cold, salad had none of the extra ingredients it was supposed to have. We had to call the manager who agreed with our assessment and did not charge us for dinner which... More

Wines tend to be from smaller vineyards and there's a good variety. Kale salad is delicious. Pizzas are all thin crust and you choose the toppings. The best part is the spice rack they bring out to you with the pizza -- all from the local Penzey's spice shop. You can try the usual toppings like red pepper flakes or... More

Always busy bar & restaurant. Excellent variety of wine. Great cheese bar. Great salads. Pizzas are somewhere between personal pizza size and small pizza. Extremely thin crust. Excellent. Service always good. Parking in a municipal lot across the street.

Design your own pizza and and the gourmet spices to top it off. Wonderful salads are a nice compliment while waiting for your pie.

We always plan to go to Fat Cat for birthday dinners or celebrations. They have the most amazing gluten free pizzas. Even if you aren't gluten free, you should try them because they taste better than the original pizza bases! Great wine list as well. Can't go wrong !

This restaurant gets it right with a well considered selection of small plates and gourmet pizzas. Family friendly and great for small gatherings.

Indie one of a type pizza place. What's to love? The pizza is thin crust, good ingredients & nice combos (red onion, mushroom & sausage for eg). You get to build your own. The salads are simple fresh and healthy. The wine & beers offered are good & different. Fat Cat (I think) is connected to Fountainhead (wine & beer).... More

Fat Cat has unusual pizzas and excellent salads and a wonderful selection of wines, plus very knowledgeable servers. The experience of eating there leaves something to be desired, for me, because of the noise and lack of comfortable seating. The wood and brick interior is aesthetically pleasing to the eye but makes for a noisy environment, which for me detracts... More
