Fat Tuna Grille & Oyster House
Excellent seafood very crowded popular place menu is varied
Fat Tuna is one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsburg.
We were seated immediately. My wife ordered the fish tacos and I ordered a seafood platter. The platter had shrimp, flounder, scallops, oysters and rice. Each item tasted as they are, i.e., like shrimp, flounder, scallops, and oysters...meaning they were fresh and not fried in the same oil. One thing, the flounder was somewhat tasteless. Maybe they should switch to catfish for more flavor. My wife truly enjoyed her meal as well. The service was excellent and prompt. Cost was reasonable. I will certainly bring family members to this restaurant.
LA very cute place with grreat food and good service!
Generally good food. We chose the wrong menu items as most of our meal was fried. The soft shelled crab was not as tasty as I had hoped, but it was good.
Our waiter was outstanding and the meal was served very promptly.
The price was quite reasonable.
Overall, we enjoyed Fat Tuna and will make better menu choices next time.
Excellent service and good food! The server was very attentive and met our every need.
Overall a great experience. Maybe just a little more seasoning but the quality and price is very good. Dining out in Williamsburg can be pricey due to it being a tourist town but fat tuna does a great job of delivering good food at a good price. A+ food came out hot!
I took my family to Fat Tuna and Oyster House for Mother’s Day. I was very impressed by the food and will be coming back for more.
Of course Mother’s Day was packed but our server did an amazing job. Hush puppies and corn muffins were a nice touch. Salads were amazing. PoBoy was good. Grouper Ruben would pass on next time. Terrific bar menu. Overall really nice visit.
My wife's favorite seafood restaurant. I don't eat a lot of seafood because of gout, and ordered a steak, which was really good....as good as any higher-level steakhouse.
People wait a long time to eat here, for a reason...
We sat at the bar bc it was very crowded and did not want to take up a table for others especially since it was just the two of us. We ordered tuna appt and scallop meal. Well appt. came out with meal which was weird and tuna was under heat lamp bc it was warm and mushy. Not the proper way to eat tuna and scallops were to be broiled and they weren’t cooked. We asked to have them cooked and instead of taking whole plate back the bartender wanted to put scallops on a small plate. Again not the proper way to address uncooked food. I handed her the whole plate. Mind you we had tons large scallops and when new plate came back we had only 5 small scallops. Very weird. Not happy and I wouldn’t recommend this place. We went to Berrets Taphouse Grill near William Sonoma which highly recommended. Fresh seafood and $1 oysters which were amazing.
We go to Williamsburg twice a year, and Fat Tuna is our restaurant of choice every time we visit. We love it! The food is excellent, and the owner strives for excellence. I highly recommend Fat Tuna.
Had been here twice before in the past couple of years. I remember it being better. There was nothing actually wrong, but the food came up short of my expectation, and the ambiance was lacking in general. I’d put it on par with Red Lobster. Which is to say that while everyone ate their meals and the service was very prompt, none of us felt the kitchen went beyond the bare minimum.
Food was fantastic, I had the soft shell crab. They were the best I've had.
On a visit to Williamsburg, we were told about the Fat Tuna. We try to visit small businesses during our travels and we decided to give it a try. Reservations were recommended and I’m glad I had open table. We were able to walk in and be seated right away. Food was good. Wait staff was excellent. Cheesecake was absolutely the best cheesecake I have ever had.
Large and varied menu.
Pleasant and attentive service.
Excellent grilled whole branzino.
Firm, fresh and tasty oysters
An excellent, solid choice for a good meal.
Great food and service as usual
Food is always very fresh and well-prepared. Wish they offered a greater selection of soups or chowders, but the fresh seafood should have precedence, as it does.
Our oysters were wonderful. The dinner was amazing with wonderful taste and large portions of food for the price. We will come back and recommend to friends as well!!
Food good, service great, lots of noise. We could not carry on a decent conversation.
Great spot! Good food, good portions , great waitstaff.
It was just okay. The hush puppies were good. The mashed potatoes were good. My mother got sick from the tuna and spent the rest of the evening in bed. Overall okay experience. My parents are just visiting for the weekend and I’d never been to Fat Tuna before so I thought it sounded like a good place for us to go. I regret it. I feel kind of mislead by great number of positive reviews.
Very friendly and great place to eat for a night out
Attentive service. Dishes and drinks explained. Personable wait staff.
Our waitress, Fibi, was awesome. Her knowledge of the menu and service was wonderful.
Great food and service. Bery busy and loud so dont go if you want a quiet dinner.
Service was great. Menu has a wide variety of items. Oysters on the half shell were excellent, my fish was way over cooked.
as alkways the food was outstanding . our server seemed a little rushed and it took a while to get drinks and check but otherwise fantastic.
Excellent seafood- place. Good choices and service. Very popular - need a reservation to guarantee seating
This is our go-to place in Williamsburg. Huge selection - haven't tried everything on it. But everything we've tried has been excellent!
Really enjoyed the food, but the noise level was hard to deal with. Diners are packed-into rooms with little to no atmosphere, or sound attenuation. We will go back in a less-buy time, for the oysters if nothing else.
Food was poor quality and very noisy. Had eaten there several years ago and it was very good. Will not go back
Food very good, and waiter Sergio very accommodating. Loved the broiled seafood platter and sesame salmon. Veggies cooked just right, and we enjoyed our hush puppies and cornbread muffins, too! Family owned. And a good find in Williamsburg!
We had a nice dining experience. Good food, good service. Large seafood selection.
The food was fresh and delicious. Our waiter Seth was extremely attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back.
The quality of the food was excellent. The portions were huge — particularly in relation to the price. I was in a wheelchair but they were able to accommodate me. I promise I will be back.
Fabulous meal and service. We both had the tuna. Great!!
Everything was very good my husbands raw Oysters were excellent Rather expensive but very fresh and very cold I had Tuna which was delicious Our waiter Jonathan was excellent Helpful and friendly and patient with the kids Best meal of our mini vacation
Seated right away even though we showed up 15 minutes early for our reservation. Food was hot and tasty. Had the raw oysters. Fresh and clean. Staff was upbeat and attentive. Wife really enjoyed the Berry Mojito.
