“Best meal while on vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night! Lots of locals so that spoke volumes. Fun, loud atmosphere. Husband had a shrimp burger, which he said was very good. I had the beef burger with bleu cheese and caramelized onions. Superior beef, great taste. We highly recommend eating here.

“Best Place for your new Marine to eat”

Our son was told to eat there once he finally made it out of Parris Island... You wont regret, the burgers are awesome and for your new Marine is the best after 3 months trap in the Island....

“1 Good and 1 Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

It was recommended we go here from a waitress at another restaurant. The selection was very good and we decided to 'build our own'. My wife got a Turkey burger with sweet potato fries which she said was very good. I ordered the Beef/Bacon (medium rare) with goat cheese, mushrooms and bacon with fries. My burger was not even close to medium rare!!! It was crispy on the outside but still completely raw on the inside. I order medium rare every time i get a burger and have never had one this under cooked before. The meat inside the patty was still cold and completely untouched by any heat. I think that the burger would have been good if it had been cooked a little longer but who knows. Also the price jumps up once you start adding on toppings to the burger but still wasn't that bad for what we ordered. I'm still not sure if we will try Fat Patties again or not but i will post if we do.

“Great burger and brat place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

We went here after our Marine graduated from boot camp. Was very crowded but that was because it was a Friday and it was after graduation. Service was fine. Bar service was slow.
Menu had plenty of choices if you wanted burgers or brats. Had many selections of build your own or had a variety that were pre-selected varieties. They have 5 different varieties of base burgers--including black bean burger.
We all enjoyed our burgers. Although one of our burgers was way undercooked--he ate it anyway due to how crowded place was.
Would definitely return.
There also is an ice cream parlor in the place. Very good ice cream. Unique flavors.

“Not Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

The selling point here is that you build your own burger or brat. Problem is, that can get expensive. The other items on the menu, while described in delicious detail, are also a bit pricey for what they are. It wasn't a bad meal by any means, but not some place I feel I need to go to every time I'm in town.
