Ate there Sunday for late lunch. Service was terrible and the Reuben sandwich was dry and hard as a rock. My son got pancakes and they didn't bring him bitter or syrup. I had to get up and walk to the kitchen , and then the staff just walked by me on several occasions and ignored me! They also serve... More

I really would like to give a five star review on this restaurant, but our waitress was not concerned with the details of our orders. She got several things wrong and acted like it was an inconvenience to fix it. Another waitress helped us, and she was excellent. The reason she helped us is because our waitress was too busy...

Food still OK but lunch portions are smaller now. Fish and chips, for example. 2 small pieces of fish, about 3" long each, now called 'calabash'. Does that mean 'small'? Wrote about toothpick cup before - sits by door, open cup for all to touch. Not individually wrapped or dispensed. Imagine the sweaty guy with the cold feeling around for... More

I always went to the Shelby Fatz. The food was very good. We all went Feb. 6,2017. The chicken was changed and some of us could not eat it. I would highly recommend going ther, but since it changed, I am not going there anymore. I really did love it. I am sorry that I can't eat there anymore. Brenda... More

This is a typical Fatz restaurant in its arrangement and atmosphere. The menu offered many new items since our last visit to a Fatz. The server was very friendly and efficient. The manager came over and spoke with us and asked if we were pleased with the service and food. The Calabash Fish was tasty. My wife told me that... More

Saw the billboards but wasn't sure what to expect. My wife and I finally stopped for lunch one day. Inside is very nice with a large mix of booths and tables. Our waitress was prompt and very knowledgeable of the menu. My wife had a large salad with salmon. It was fresh and the fish was nicely done. I opted... More
