Kind of a cross between Applebees and Ruby Tuesdays, decent food for that genre, large portions, crappy beer menu(BMC)

The restaurant is next to the hotel - a short stroll! Service was excellent. The selection is very adequate. Started with a tomato based soup which was delicious. Entrees were very good.

Sorry, but for a veggie this place is no good. I ended up eating just a house side salad after asking that the bacon was removed. My partner ate the trout, which he enjoyed, but the vegetables were awful.

We had a party of 35 and the entire staff ensured that all of our orders were correct as well as went the extra step to provide any discounts that were available to our party.

The seafood place was closed on Monday night. So we decided to try the Fats out. The food and service was very good. The portion size was more than ample.

I wish they had this brand of establishment near our home. They seem to be mostly in South Carolina. They are O'Charley's-like in price and setting, but their food is better. My wife and I have never had anything served at a Fatz (which is the way it is spelled, not "Fats") that was not prepared to perfection. Go to... More
