Great classic American fun diniing. Good place for family, kids, etc , Totally non smoking which is wonderful to us. Can have cocktails if desired and menu items along with specials are great. Especially like the Sunday homestyle menu. Consistent at all FATZ we have visited.

We were staying at nearby hotel and the lady at the front desk told us about this restaurant. We had never been here before so we figured let's try it. Boy are we glad we did. The food was delicious! And you get A LOT of it! Our waiter was fantastic. Very funny and very nice. Would definitely eat here... More

The ribs were very good quality, slightly overcooked but overall very good. Drinks were not overly generous pours (alcohol) but fair. The fries and salad was very good as was the outstanding service. I'd go back to this Fatz

I'm not really sure why this place has so many bad reviews, but we really enjoyed everything about this place! When we got here, we asked if our dog could dine with is and they were happy to accommodate us. Everyone was very polite (even brought water for our pup) and when we told them it was our first time,... More

We travel from Florida to Charlotte, NC often and we frequently stop at Fatz in Orangeburg. We have noticed a slight decline in service and food quality. This visit was the worst. The food tasted like old grease. My fries were soggy. The poor server was trying, but he was assigned too many tables and everyone around us had complaints.... More

We sat down and waited and waited and no one came to serve us so we got up and left. The waitresses were sitting down screaming at each other. It just sucked. They need new management to say the least.

Well, let me first off start by saying that we have been to FATZ many times and always have an enjoyable experience. We had a long day on the road and were looking forward to sitting down for a decent meal. Unfortunately, we were highly, highly disappointed. I wouldn't even recommend this place to my worst enemy. It started from... More

Long wait to be seated. Took about 15 minutes before waitress took our order. My wife ordered Crescent Cajun pasta which she found not edible and way too salty. I ordered the Calabash Fried Fish which looked like a really large portion but was a lot of breading and not so much fish. The fish had a very odd texture... More

The food was very good. Took to long to be seated with empty seats available. Had a long line waiting to be seated. Same way when I went back the next day.
