Is it bad that the employees recognize me and know my name now? I love love love the apple pecan chicken salad! Actually, I love the whole menu! Always fast and friendly service and never have I had a bad meal at Fatty's. You gotta get there!

A group of four "leaf peepers" from the east side of the state took a chance after reading other reviews. Oh so glad we did. Each of us tried a different sandwich, and we loved them all. We also had a really yummy tortellini pasta salad. Fast friendly service in a very cute setting. We will be back!!!

Always a great choice for lunch. The Caprese salad and white chicken chili (I ask for a dollop of pesto) are my favorites! I have never been disappointed at Fatty Lumpkins. Seating is limited.

I could easily tell that this was a local's secret and favorite in town! Many business people were popping in on their lunch breaks and grabbing a quick bite!

The food was great, I was just passing through and found it using Trip Advisor. Boar's Head meats, what else needs to be said?

Came here for lunch after visiting the USS Silversides. Chicken sandwich and greek salad were great, very fresh and tasty. As others have said its off the beaten path, but is worth the drive for the food. The staff were very friendly and even brought our food outside. Recommended.

I work locally in Muskegon and frequently order sandwiches from Fatty Lumpkins for client meetings. My clients are always happy with the choice. My favorite sandwich is the "Wham Bam Thank you Ham", especially in the fall when the apples are super crisp.
