My boyfriend and I eat there quiet frequently. The service is usually superb, and the food is delicious. One of the features I enjoy about the restuarant is that there is a time set aside on Sunday that they offer no smoking completely in the whole restuarant. I recommend the Kalabash Chicken, or the Club Sandwich. If you want a good dessert that low carb cappaccuino cheesecake is to die for!
My husband I frequent Fatz every couple of weeks or so. I absolutely LOVE the poppy seed rolls they bring you as an appetizer before your meals (free!). The first time we went I ate more of them than I did my meal! I had the 10oz. sirloin and it was good, but I have yet to find a great steak in the Tri-Cities. Food is good overall. Big spacious booths and very friendly wait staff. Overall good experience.
Atmosphere was good yet lacked a true theme, much like most aspects of the restaurant. The tables were spacious and sported at their entrance a billboard for drinks and desserts. The specialty at Fatz is the Calabash chicken (World Famous)... what I ended up with is chicken fingers and fries. NOT GREAT. I thought there would be a special flavor or something... but NO. They are just chicken fingers. This is a nice place to go with friends for a few drinks but don't expect great food... just good food.
Bright Spot: A mexican style chicken soup... very good and great as a dipper for the chicken fingers.
Down Fall: Lacked a true theme or something to set it appart from any other place one might label as a 'Fern Bar'
