We went on a Friday early afternoon. Seated instantly. Waitress from Ohio was friendly and engaging to our group. The four of us were all pleased with the quality of our meals. The fish dinner had more than I could eat. The place was clean...More

I don't go often, but every time I eat at Fatz, the food is good and the service is also. Rarely ever much of a wait. You'll enjoy it

Have ordered carry out several times and we are always happy with the quality of food and service. The carry out server is always wonderful, friendly and very helpful. You cant go wrong with chicken strips (calabash), wings and sides.

Chalky, unappetizing potato soup, very dry sandwich with dry almost stale bread, but the service WS good. Overall not worth the time or the money.

We went there this past week because of the AYCE Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs. The ribs were a combination of baby back (which were tender) and spareribs (which were definitely not tender). They usually come with fries but I ordered a baked potato instead. Guess what I...More

There is an area that can fit 10-15 people. I am not sure if reservations are required for a group that big. It doesn't hurt to call in advance.
