The ones at Fatz rocked! I wish you were in Arizona! The staff was really friendly and after a long day on the road it was a wonderful end of day.

My husband and I went to Fatz Cafe at the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. We took a seat at the bar (baseball on TV). Our server/bartender was Whitney. We asked for his recommendations for dinner, especially since we had never heard of Calbash cooking. He promptly brought out a sample of the chicken... we were sold.... More

We stopped here after a 12 hour drive. The advertisement of southern style comfort food was tempting. I ordered the chicken pot pie. Please never order that! It was inedible. The crust was hard as a rock. The insides looked like scraps. My stomach still turns when I think of it. Also, the place was dirty and the waitstaff inattentive.

Food variety is exceptional. Love their appetizers, calabash chicken and club. Service is quick, food hot, wait staff friendly. I visit every time I am in Florence.

Staying overnight on our drive to Florida. The staff at the hotel recommended this place for Southern comfort food. The place is very busy we had to wait about 25 minutes for a table but it went fast. They have a bar so you can have a drink while you wait. We got chowder and seafood and everything was good....

If you are lucky enough to have Charley as your server you are set for a perfect meal. Everything on the menu looks delicious and the pictures do not disappoint. The Calabash Chicken tenders were melt in your mouth yummy. My husband had the Bug Fatz Chopped Steak. I think he about licked his plate clean! But the service was... More

Hopped off I95 to grab lunch while traveling through the area. Was greeted with southern charm, amazing food at a fair price.

Visiting family in Florence and tried this local restaurant. First time here. Great food, great food, very accommodating. They let us sample the tenders to help with our decision on what to order. Every thing came out hot and fresh. Would highly recommend, and will dine there again when back in town. Everything came out hot, fresh and prepared correctly.... More
