“Just average”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

The place was not very busy but the service and kitchen were both very slow. It took almost thirty minutes to get my dinner which was nothing complicated just chicken tenders. The appetizer of onion straws was cold but the entree was nice and hot. Waiter was a really nice guy but really slow. Nothing great just average.

CafeEnterprises, Manager at FATZ, responded to this review, July 9, 2013
We are sorry to hear that the service and the kitchen were slow and that the onion straws were cold. We agree that it is unacceptable for this to happen, and does not live up to the high standards we expect of our team. Please accept our apologies and thank you for your feedback as we can’t get better without it.

“Excellent place”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Just near Fort Jackson. Great food, friendly atmosphere and great customer service. I order a trio of shrimps, grilled chicken and ribs, everything was well cook, tender and juicy. Generous size.

“Enjoyable meal”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We arrived with a large party and it took them a few minutes to get the table set up which was no problem. For some reason it seemed to take a little extra time to get us our drinks but once that was done everything went well. Our Server was fast efficient, helpful with the elderly patrons and did her best to make sure a glass was never empty. The food was delicious and every one was pleased with what they had. Definitely worth visiting if you find yourself in the area.

“Good Choice”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

staff was friendly, I had a delicious Strawberry spinach salad, but the chicken dishes my daughter and husband got were not very appealing. Cotton candy for dessert was a treat!
