“Great service, good food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The food was standard bar fare, but the service was superb! It is small and definitely a bar but family friendly and the food was good. Overall the best restaurant experience we had in Tahoe City!

“Life of town”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Nice little place that serves surprisingly good fresh food even though their main business is booze. Thursday nights are karaoke and Friday/Saturday they have live bands. Tahoe City is not exactly a party town, so this was one of the liveliest spots we found.

“Surprisingly delicious”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch there yesterday and Jaclyn was terrific with our group, including 4 kids. Thought it was just going to be bar food but the entrees were delicious. Recommend the fat cat burger with sweet potato fries, although the regular ones were good as well, the Club, and the turkey burger. Salads were good too.

“Small and funky”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Fat Cat's food was scrumptious. It is a bit crowded, but is an unpretentious watering hole and gathering place for locals.
My Hickory Burger was mouthwatering.
