    We had New Year’s Eve dinner plans at 7:30. The previous table took about 40 minutes longer to eat. We sat at the bar while we waited and we’re treated to multiple complimentary dishes and multiple apologies. It was way above and beyond what was needed and extremely appreciated. The food and the drink were also top notch. Will be back.

    I always enjoy my meal at fat baby; drinks, appetizers, and entrees were perfect. It was quite loud, which can be hard when getting together w friends. I do always enjoy my meal and already can’t wait to come back!

    Great experience overall, very good food and fun vibes. Only complaint is that servers seemed somewhat averse to clearing the table so we were often left with empty drink glasses and appetizer plates that should have been taken away.

    Maki Monday was awesome! The food and drink was delicious. All you can eat maki was an exceptional value. Just know it is going to be LOUD. I was fine with it— lots of energy—but I imagine the noise level is not for everyone.

    Great vibe inside and cool, Thai fusion menu! I had to go for the Thai curry noodles but I’d love to go back soon to try the unique sushi rolls! Server was so friendly and food came out hot and fast even though it seemed like a pretty busy Tuesday.

    I had to update our reservation time twice last minute because my friend was traveling from out of town, hit a ton of traffic, and never called me with ETA updates. I had so much anxiety calling in to say we’d be an hour late, then another 20 minutes late. I assumed I’d be cancelled and blacklisted but let me tell you- fat baby has a hostess with the mostest!!!! She was incredibly kind and understanding, professional and accommodating. We didn’t have to wait when we got there despite the place being busy, and the table that was waiting for us was one of the bests. I’ve been a host, bartender, server, and shot girl over the years and y’all check all the service boxes. Welcoming host, fun vibes, friendly server/runner (+server made menu recommendations when I was torn which was amazing) fast delivery, and delish craft cocktails & food!!! How dare you treat an unreliable guest with such greatness! ;) Love and appreciate your team! Don’t change!!!

    The food last night was awful…and the service wasn’t good either. The server was too busy talking with people or doing other tasks instead of caring about our experience.

    we never actually ate or drank anything, after approx. 10-15 minutes sitting at the bar we got up and left. We understand shift change is hectic, but we saw no less than 5 staff walking around, one of which was just leaning back on the bar and the other geeking out laughing with friends/coworkers that had just walked in. we were given waters when we sat down, so that was nice. The bartender was left hanging, and sure he could have taken our order, you expect the other staff or management to be on the lookout for this type of situation we were really looking forward to this but ended up shooting over to the south end.

    Awesome!! I hadn’t been back since right after the opening years ago, and enjoyed every bit of our second trip back! Great location, beautiful inside, fun, good food etc. We especially loved the Maki Monday unlimited sushi- a great deal and also was fun to try a bunch of different rolls within our group! Will definitely be back. Brussel sprouts and fried chicken buns were also amazing!
