This place has good food and people. We have only been twice, but the two times we have been it has been great. Our server was Lisa she is great. She made sure we had everything we needed. So if you go ask for Lisa she will treat you great.

Delicious food and friendly service. I had Thai chicken salad and Chantal anticipated I might prefer my dressing on the side. Very thoughtful. She was right. It was our first visit and she was very helpful as we made all our selections. Loved the poppyseed biscuits with honey butter and the peach cobbler too.

At our table we had calabash chicken strips, ribs(bourbon street style), fried shrimp, Thai chicken salad and the Carolina peach cobbler. 5 for 5 is a pretty great visit. Service was great at our table and throughout the restaurant. A very nice stop for dinner.

Food always good and fresh. Plates are large. Enough to share. They are so nice. Don't mind providing an extra plate. Service is great. Last time we sat in the bar area. Did not like that as much. Wait for dining room worth the wait.

Fatz is consistent in the food no matter the location. There ribs are slow cooked and fall off the bone good. I love their sweet potato fries also!

Family friendly, lots of fried dishes but something for everyone. Great family dining. Bread is delicious! Desserts are too. Don't be on a diet.

I have to start this review by saying that our waiter, Lavelle, was the best waiter I have had in a long time. He should be a manager because his top priority is customer service and food quality. The food was really awesome and the atmosphere is very homey. This is great southern cooking and their specialty, Calabash Chicken is... More

Quick and friendly service with a smile, banter, and deliciously flavored basket of rolls. Order ed chicken fried steak and calabash combo; both delicious and very filling. Nevel, our server, was attentive and entertaining. Great stop during our travels.

My wife and I found this cafe by chance and it turned out to be a real find. We stopped for lunch and had chicken tenders along with their poppy seed rolls. The chicken tenders were incredibly moist and the poppy seed rolls were excellent. The service was top notch. Can't wait to visit this restaurant again.
