We went to the Fat Cat on several recommendations. At 5 PM on a Saturday, we still had a 15 minute wait. They don't take reservations but they were full for a reason.

It's been several years since I last dined at The Fat Cat, mainly because you could never get a table there during the popular dinner hours. Now, with many competing restaurants surrounding this Quincy icon, the competition is much stronger. Arriving at 6:30+ on a...More
