We received wonderful service from Sarah Jane. This was surely a nice surprise and very refreshing since, unfortunately, you don't get it very often. We really enjoyed the food too!

Service was first rate, the entree left a lot to be desired.The chicken fried steak was a very thin piece of steak. My spouse said he finds the fish filet at Captain D's superior. He got the optional, for .99 uncharge, dinner salad. It was... More

Went for a family member's birthday. Bathroom was super gross. Service was forgetful. Food was obviously frozen food warmed up--Stouffer's lasagna would have been a better, fresher choice. Most tables around us were complaining to management for one reason or another, as did the folks I was with. I had fried shrimp which weren't bad, but the chopsteak is like... More

Our club group arrived just after lunch opening. Two tables were moved together for us giving us plenty of elbow room. Amazing these days how much adding lemons to drinks can complicate drink ordering, but our server got it perfect. Three of us had the Classic Burger. I ordered mine medium and it was perfect. The others ordered their's medium... More

My husband & I have been dining at this Fatz Cafe since it opened and have never had a disappointing meal here! Food & service have always been good. Some of my faves are their Calabash Chicken Wrap and their Seabreeze Spinach Salad. My husband is partial to their Key West Fish and Salmon on a Maple Wood Plank. HINT:... More
