Recently visited for lunch. The restaurant was empty except for three at the bar. Two waitresses on duty yet a man came out of the kitchen to see if we had been helped. He got the waitress who then seated us and left. She came...back a few minutes later to get drink orders, two sodas. Well, ten minutes later, no drinks...but...she could cut fruit for the bar and wait on people coming in from outside for bar service. The other waitress walked by us multiple times bussing a previously occupied table. Several minutes later WE LEFT! Maybe worst experience everMore

My husband and I had dinner at Fat Patties on 8/2. We had our dog Dorthy with us so we sat outside. Our server was Margaret and she was absolutely awesome! We started with calamari which was excellent a very generous portion. I got the...house made porter sausage and hubby got the ribeye cheesesteak. My sausage was amazing and my husband (who’s a chef) said his cheesesteak was the best he’s had in years. The rosemary fries were also a nice touch. Server was knowledgeable about the local beer selection and was able to give some really good recommendations. As a heads up, with covid right now you do have to look up the menu on your phone to order but really not a big deal. Highly recommended.More

Only come here if you have an hour to wait for food if they are not busy. If they are busy it could be two hours. Wont be back.

We had a delicious meal at Fat Patties. The service was wonderful and ordering online was very simple. The portions are well worth the money. I suggest the rosemary fries and homemade chips!

We ate here after visiting Parris Island. Parking is horrible. Just a small lot behind the business. The lot was full and the restaurant wasn’t so. Not sure where all the people were. It’s a burger joint. The fried mozzarella snacks are wonderful. Plenty of...room on the inside for a large party. Service was good.More

First time here! I had the beef burger with fried mozzarella and fries. It was awesome... except they have two kinds of ketchup at the table and I basically ruined my burger by putting the “7 spice ketchup” on it instead of the regular kind....So I had to eat it. My only concern would be that they find a different bottle for this ketchup, maybe a different color completely instead of just the labeling.More

Keeping in mind the COVID “era” when we were there I would say no because it really felt more like a restaurant to me. Not my idea of a sports bar, anyway.
