Tried the fried broccoli and it was bomb! Everything we had was great! It reminds me of a parlor and the food is named as such. The service was on point too. It was a nice night, but windy and they closed the garage doors when we asked.

Food solid, not especially noteworthy. Doing great job with Covid precautions. Some service was great, some was not. Maybe an off night

It was good food. We probably went to early in the evening for the ambiance to be great.

The service was pretty slow and food took an hour on a Sunday when it wasn't that busy. The bloody Mary was awesome. The breakfast scramble was yummy but very small.

Service was friendly but very slow. Both of our dishes arrived without the bacon we ordered and paid extra for. It was impossible to flag down our harried waitress who never stopped by to check on us after dropping our food. We finally caught the hostess when she seated another table nearby to get help with our missing items. She took care of it right away but by that point our food had gotten cold. Dishes were honestly surprisingly small and it didn’t seem like there was any salt or pepper used at all. We won’t return.

We had such a great brunch at Fat Kat Slims! The live music, food and service were all great! The GM, Keith, was such a pleasure and took great care of us— thanks so much and we can’t wait to come back!

We were excited to try this place, but we’re sorely disappointed. The live musician was awkward, and his music was far too loud. The garage doors were open, and the place was windy and freezing. The food took forever to come out even though they were not busy, and there was a hair in my husband’s burger. We won’t be returning.

The ambience was great. The band, Jane Rose and the Deadend Boys rocked. The staff was friendly. The service wasn’t very good. Our server, only came to our table twice. Once to answer questions and next to bring our drinks. She never came back to check on us. We had to go find her to pay our bill. The hostess came to our table to move it back from the band stage. She told us “we have swing dancers coming in”. My wife and I had been swing dancing while we were there. I suppose she wasn’t talking about us. We stayed about another half our then left before the “swing dancers” came in.

It was probably the worst buffet my wife and I have ever had. For $25 a person, you’d expect more than 3 options. The drinks we ordered were very very bad. I also got the wrong beer.

The place was nice and the music was great. But we love good food or at least okay food, and this was below okay.

Totally average at best. Not the place to eat. Maybe better when they have live music.

Fat Kat Slim's was close to the Science Discovery Center, so the location was ideal for us to bring our family of 8 (ages 8-70) for an early dinner. We had the place pretty much to ourselves at 5 p.m., although there was a bachelorette party going on in the bar. We were there for the food, and probably not their ideal customers. The staff was very gracious.

Burgers were decent. However, the cocktails left something to be desired.
