“Never again!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Over cooked hamberger. I think it was very likely that it was "pre-cooked" and then warmed up just prior to serving. The french fries were served luke warm. Great service by an attentive young man but this is the second time I have been served over cooked food and/or luke warm food, so I avaoid Fatz from now on.

“EXCELLENT EATING EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Hotel manager recomended Fats cafe to us and we were very pleased, The food was great,the service was outstanding, at a very good price, considering what others charge for alot less food, and when we mentioned that it was our first visit we received a free sample of their awesome calabash chicken, and also one of the best peach cobbler desserts we had ever eaten..I highly recommened Fatz cafe to anyone in the area.. Can't wait until they get a place in our area ....

“Totally ignored”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We walked in last night. There were very few patrons and no hostess or bartender. After waiting a few minutes, we sat ourselves at a booth in the bar. The bartender walked past us a few times waiting on another table and serving 2 other patrons at the bar. After she passed us a few more times we walked out. We were there at least 15 minutes and no employee of the restaurant spoke to us, including the hostess at the door as we left.

“Shrimp and Grits (pricey for what you get)”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

I decided to try the shrimp and grits entree recently at Fatz. It was at least $11.
The plate arrived with a huge pile of grits and little topping (consisting of shrimp and bacon bits).

Don't misunderstand....the food was DELICIOUS. I would have had a more balanced meal had I chosen the Hawiaan chicken dish or calabash chicken...and for less money.

Otherwise, the service was great!
