Excellent bar food, good selection of drinks and pleasant service. Only one server at bar and food, but she never lost her cool and kept her charm throughout... Practically running between stations, responsible for bar, food, and register. Good job! Nice place.

Wednesday night music . Great selection on beers, which I like, also MI drinks and wine. Food was great and reasonably-priced. Thumbs up to Fat Fish.

Came here for my class reunion. Ordered the Bloody Mary Burger, see the menu. Their burgers are infused. It was juicy. The fries were overdone for my tastes however. Fat Fish had local bands play on the weekends. A little loud for my old ears, but I still had a good time. Check them out sometime.

This was my first visit to Fat Fish Pub. They have bands that play in the evenings. I had stopped in for lunch, so no bands for me to experience. They have autographed pictures and guitars that hang from the walls from some of the bands that have been booked to play there. We had the tenderloin special and fries.... More

Arrived a little before 7p.m. When waitress came over ask if we wanted food and gave us a menu but said they were out of everything but pizza. After mulling it over my husband went up to the bar and ordered a pizza. He left his card because it is required if you want to order. Later probably 15 min.... More

Just north of the square, in the old camera shop, is a fabulous bar with live jazz. Check their website to see what nights stuff is happening. Great service, love the vibe..

The menu is full of interesting choices, but fails to live up to the potential due to short staff or being out of items. We were the only ones dining that evening, we were never given menus, and had to order at the bar. However, it would be perfect for a small group who is looking to have tasty snacks... More

Fat Fish is probably my favorite place to eat in Galesburg. The food is amazing--think bar food, but gourmet and innovative. I'm vegetarian, and usually have trouble finding good food at bars, but Fat Fish has many delicious options. My favorite is the pimento grilled cheese. Besides the awesome food, they have a wide selection of craft beers. Try the... More

Whether it's a loud weekend live show or a quiet weeknight happy hour, Fat Fish is the bar that provides Galesburg's largest selection of quality beers on tap with an enjoyable interior aesthetic of classic rock 'n roll. You can even order a sampler flight of up to four beers. Hungry? Order your food at the bar and be served... More
