My wife and I decided to stop by Fatz after arriving in the area for a couple days at Carowinds. We were very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by courteous staff and a manager who asked if it was our first time at which point we were given a free sample of their famed Calabash chicken. It was excellent enough that we both ordered entrees with it.

Our server was the best waitress (Veronica) I've ever had. Pleasant, upbeat, and helpful, she was extremely proactive and had the same helpful demeanor that everyone else we encountered did. From making sure we got the discounts we should (without us asking) to suggesting a drink my very picky wife absolutely loved, she was fantastic.

Sometimes you'll encounter one or two exceptional elements in an average restaurant, but this place truly had an excellent vibe. We will go out of our way to eat here again.

We've been here a few times, and have really had no complaints. The calabash chicken is good, but there's nothing really memorable about Fatz. Good bread, good service. But it's nothing to get too excited about.

We took my stepdad here for a treat night. We had an awesome server (regretfully I can't remember her name!) who was very attentive and super friendly. I love the poppy seed rolls so she brought out extras! We ordered the cheese fries for our appetizer and we were all fighting over them-- delicious! My husband and I both had the steak tips and we loved them-great flavor and cooked just the way we liked!! My stepdad had the calabash shrimp and he really liked that too! I've always had good experiences here and will definitely go back!!

Walking in the place felt pretty fancy, but was more like a glorified Applebee's. The music was pleasant though, mostly recognizable movie tunes. The food was good but nothing to write home about. It had a large chain restaurant quality which isn't what we were looking for.

We ate at Fatz just across the border from South Carolina yesterday on a recommendation from my brother in law and this particular one didn't quite fill our expectations. It had the look of a nice place with superb standards but definitely wasn't. The wait staff wasn't horrid but they weren't great either (our waitress was decent, not everyone else). The steaks weren't cooked how we ordered them and the ribs I got looked like they were sitting out for hours prior to me getting them. We didn't complain and just ate the food because the woman who brought out our food had that "I don't give a hoot about being here or you" look and figured we'd get a side of spit if she was involved. Given the opportunity, I would not go back or recommend this place to anyone else.
