I met a new friend for lunch. It was right before Thanksgiving so I didn't want chicken, and they have a good selection of chicken items on the menu. I chose the broiled fish with broccoli and a side of garlic coleslaw. It couldn't have been better. Abundant serving of broccoli, not overcooked but fresh and crisp. The fish was... More

Saturday lunch. My wife's entrée was an extremely over-cooked, chewy, tiny piece of chicken with five miniscule chunks of peach on unseasoned rice. Mine was a basic burger on a bun which had been burned on the grill and had no bread-like texture left. Service was adequate and the bill came to $32.00 with ice tea and a diet soda.... More

I keep saying I'll never go back. My wife talked me into it again. I will not go into all the details, again, but you can read my other reviews of this place. How bad was it? The manager gave us our meals for free, if that tells you anything. Fair? I was not satisfied with this. I feel I... More

Frequent visitors to FATZ we normally find the food good, the service very good and the atmosphere enjoyable. Last night the food was good, the bar service good, but the kitchen was understaffed and the food was way too long in coming. Our salads took 40 minutes plus! During our wait we endured a loud, obnoxious group of 3 in... More
