There's a story that it gots it's name from a squirrel that used to eat the left over hopps from the micro brewery that was there...hence, one fat squirrel...regardless of facts surrounding the name, it's a clean, spacious, relaxed pplace with a great selection of beers, stouts, ales, (and wines) and a simple but satisfying menu...from bangers & mashed, shepards pie to burgers & variety of platters & sandwiches, should be something there to please you. I had a beef tip sandwich, beef was marinated in Guinness Stout, with sauteed onions & Swiss...tender & tasty...fresh cut potato fries were tasty, not greasy otr too salty...if in the area, worth a stop in...apparently they have Wi-Fi and power outlets around the interior...TV's throughout, so you can keep up with games...

We love the food and atmosphere at Fat Squirrel. The fish and chips is to die for! Great rueben sandwiches and chicken wraps. The local beers are excellent. The atmosphere in the restaurant is fun. the servers are friendly and very service oriented.

Overpriced and food wasn't that good. I didn't enjoy the seating not very many or large TV's for a supposed sports type bar.

The food was great & we've had them adjust for diet issues for our visitors. We went one afternoon a bit after the lunch rush. They were very friendly & were happy to have us split a sandwitch. They cleared a booth for us & we were very comfortable. The only negative would be small seating area, but if you go at an odd time it's not a problem.
