Huge meal and very tasty. Good price. A very basic diner, not fancy but great view of the bay. Seems to be favored by RVers. Down home cooking.

When you are grungy, sandy and sunburned, nothing like a fish taco at Fat Cats. All the kids can pile in with thier flip-flops and all can get the fried thing of their choice. We always hit it after a long day at the beach.

We liked the muscles, clams, fish taco's and crab sandwich. Pretty nice view from outside patio, good prices.

Easy walking distance from San Luis Bay Inn. Outside patio has a view overlooking the marina. My wife had crab cakes (3) which she thought was OK but nothing special. She thought it was heavy on the breading. I had fried clams (not much you can do to ruin that). You have several choices for a side and we chose coleslaw (just OK--we've had better). We also split an order of 6 LARGE breaded onion rings. The bill came out to about $32.
