Reviewed 4 October 2016

Just spent an hour and a half with three children who were very hungry and very patient only to watch three tables turn over and take out to be served with absolutely no one coming back to tell us when we could possibly expect to receive our food. We approached the waiter and asked that our food be wrapped up so that we could at least take it home, the response we recieved was "Not to point fingers but the kitchen is backed up right now." We walked in to this restaurant at 6:00 and at 7:30, there was still no food served and no indication as to when we might receive it. In addition, there were no refills of drinks or even an offer of chips or anything else while we waited. Ultimately we had to leave. The service was terrible and the owner was there and appeared to care less. This is not the first time we have been here, in general the food has been good but service was always a challenge. I will be sure to never recommend this restuaraunt in the future and let those who we have spoken to about this place that it has gone completely down hill.

Honestly, all 3 of us ordered different burrito bowls and none of us were particularly impressed. We all felt that it was bland food and was mostly comprised of rice. Comparing it to other Taco places such as this it just seems like $10 was too much to pay for 75% rice and one piece of Cod as was the case with mine. I could go to another unnamed place a couple of towns over and get a similar lunch with unlimited chips and salsa that has a lot of flavor to the food for less money. I would categorize this place more towards cheap eats IF there was more of the other ingredients than rice.

Having said all of that, the place was nice and clean inside, the wait staff was friendly and I thought the food came out quick and while it was heavy on the rice what was their seemed to be of a good quality. So...we would try Fat Fish one more time ordering the tacos this time and will hope for a more satisfying experience.

True neighborhood gem! Tacos were so fresh and tasty! Service slow but food makes up for it tremendously!

My wife and I were disappointed tonite in the dinner we had. The prices were low but you got were you paid for. The main dishes that we had: the cod fish and the buffalo chicken were primarily rice and beans with a speck of chicken and a tiny bit of fish. The dishes were tasty but there was so little that it was not enjoyable. If you wanted a bit of sour cream you have to pay extra for it. We noted our displeasure to the server and he just smiled. He next gave me a check without even asking if we wanted desert. This is one place we won't be attending again.

First time at Fat Fish Taco. Great menu. Reasonable pricing in a relaxing setting. The food was excellent. I had the Buffalo shrimp taco and a chicken quesadilla. Definitely a great combination. We will be going back real soon.
