Came to The Fat Cat one Friday and Saturday night and the place was packed and the wait was long so my friend and I left. For brunch today, my two girlfriends and I were looking for places to eat and this came to mind. We came in around noon and the restaurant was not as busy as they had just opened at 11am. Here and the music is great, our server Aaron is great, and the food is fabulous!! Got the Signature Mac and Cheese with Lobster and the portion is enormous! My friends liked their food of salmon and burger. And we had the fries for an appetizer. Great place to come!!

Awesome! The food is so good! We got the ultimate Mac and it was enough to bring home and share with everyone. It's a little small and parking is annoying but that goes along with the location being in Quincy. Be prepared to wait since seating is so few and they can't handle large parties. However just for two for lunch its a perfect afternoon.

At this establishment their motto is "go!" You're sure to feel guilty finishing your plate with such generous helpings. The menu isn't huge but just right for size. What they make, they have perfected. must haves are mac n cheese and mussels both with flavor options that are all excellent. And don't skip dessert or you'll be sorry. Also sit at the bar it's the most fun.

I love this place! The food is amazing and the beer selection is great! Very friendly staff! Can get very busy because it is small but there is a bar to sit at while you wait. Highly recommend their mac and cheese as well as the haystacks as the appetizer!

Lobster Mac - yum. Fried pickles - yum. Scallops - so delicious, arguably best I have had locally. Surprisingly nice with Parm Cheese. Always crowded and with a wait for a good reason. Think to myself they should expand but would lose it's charm. Like passport in Weymouth (same ownership) annoying policies for splitting meals and check.

The food is good for its value, but don't come alone. If there is no two-seat table free, yet all the four-seat tables are empty, you will not be seated due to their policy. Not even at 10PM. No matter that you've been there over a dozen times before. "That's the rules, man". Never before in any country have I received such rude treatment. Manager did not respond when asked for clarification.

Headed to the Fat Cat to celebrate a graduation this weekend. As usual, the food was delicious and the portions LARGE. I ordered the Blackened Chicken Pasta, which has chicken, romaine, and pasta served with a caesar cream sauce. Imagine a chicken caesar salad pasta. The sauce has a great consistency, creamy but not thick. It's tangy but rich, and really compliments the chicken. I would order again. Fiance ordered the mac and cheese, but he always requests buffalo chicken. They do a great job. The sauce is similar to the one mentioned above, but with several types of cheese. It's a amazing, and could feed a family of 4. The one disappointment was the $4 side of grilled asparagus I ordered. It came with only 4 pieces of asparagus. I didn't think it was a great value. Save room for dessert! I've had their crème brûlée twice (amazingggg...always flavored with a nice liquor) but this time I ordered the chocolate brownie sundae. It is perfect to share, with a lot of hot fudge and caramel, a hot brownie, and a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
