We stop here every so often on the way to or coming home from Pigeon Forge. It has always been super. However, this time, it was just not up to snuff. My wife order the Bar-B-Que shrimp that the menu say came with potato straws and pickled vegetables. Well, either the menu is wrong or the prep was wrong as... More

I am gluten free and used to enjoy many options at Fatz. I don't know if we just had a rude server or if it is company policy, but there was no flexibility with the menu to accommodate my needs. If you don't want a steak, there are only three other items on the menu that you can feel safe... More

The atmosphere at Fatz is a warm and inviting restaurant. The waiters were polite and accommodating with substitutes with dinner. The pricing is average depending on what you order. I would recommend this restaurant to visiters who wish to experience a nice place to eat besides a fast food restaurant.

Terrible service! Waited 30 minutes for a table and then waited 45 minutes for our food to finally get to the table. When the food finally arrived the chili was cold and the grilled chicken salad was full of onions after I had ordered without onions. The chicken was so dried out and tough we couldn't even chew it. The... More

Service was excellent, very clean and nice atmosphere. I personally don't like food that is spicy but my family does! When I told my waitress the BBQ sauce on my babybacks was burning my lips ( yep, I'm a baby when it comes to spice, I admit it) she immediately wanted to get me a new meal on the house.
