Fat Tuna Grille & Oyster House
fried or broiled
1.5 pound crab legs with corn, potatoes, Surry sausage, carrots, onions, celery, and Old Bay Seasoning with ale broth
Food was fine. Restaurant didn't have reservation from opentable and said we didn't have one even after I showed them email confirmation. Wasn't busy and got seated but kind of dumb when people deny the obvious.
Great food, freshly made and out to us with great pacing for all courses! Great waitress!
We loved the food and the staff. The local oysters on the half shell were great! Will definitely be coming back when we are in the area!
The calamari app was over cooked... drak breading and a bit tough.
The scallops also fried were perfect.
This is our second time at this restaurant having just moved to williamsburg. Both times we experienced over cooked calamari. Also time span from ordering to getting our main course was extremely long. Waitress kept apologizing for kitchen errors. Seems like they have several kitchen elements to correct.
Our server guided us through the menu. Our choices were awesome. Wife's crab ravioli made her purr. My ahi tuna was just the way I like it. We'll be going back soon!
We had Muscles, Halibut and sesame tuna. Food was prepared nicely and tasted very fresh! Ambiance is a bit blah, had potential but with news playing on TV at bar, and seating area looking a bit cheap and touristy... not quite what we expected. Would go back, but not for a nice night out...
Good food at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.
Loved everything about this restaurant!!! Will be coming back soon!
The food and service was great would definitely recommend!!!!
For sure fat tuna is over rated. The ambience and mood was very positive but the food was below par. I wish that the food was presented better and had more flavor. Prices are excellent but quality needs to improve.
Great lunch. The gumbo was excellent. Loved the tuna salad.
Truely a wonderful experience. Nice relaxing environment. Efficient, pleasant service. Terrific food at very reasonable prices. I was very impressed with the extensive menu that is full of attractive selections. The four of us have experiences many restaurant and all were very appreciative.
Food was wonderful! Hush puppies and cornbread to die for!
Always good food and great service . We were there on a Sunday night and were seated right away
Great Raw Bar and solid selection of beers. Service is a cut above.
the food and service was outstanding. it is an open space with a lot of tables. it was a bit difficult to move around and it was a bit noisy due to it being very crowded. I would definitely go back. And you definitely need to make reservations.
Amazing food and atmosphere,
Excellent time here during Valentine's Day of 2020. We made a reservation for 8:30pm and arrived a little early, around 8:10pm, and were seated promptly at 8:29pm. Highly recommend doing a reservation during busy food holidays because they did had a wait time for those who didn't. The food was great, the wine was excellent, and our service through and through was better than we could've asked for. Will definitely enjoy again the next time we're in Williamsburg.
we had to wait 1/2 hr WITH a reservation but the food was great and we liked the decor. a bit loud.
Always delicious! We had the broiled seafood platter. Excellent! Server was great too!
Great hush puppies! Oysters were delicious! A wonderful birthday surprise dinner enjoyed by all!
Not a pretentious place but the food and the service are amazing. We had oysters, salad, and the broiled fish platter and all was very nice. The waiter was extremely competent, and with the perfect attitude. Not too much not too little attention. Worth the visit.
Really good food. My tuna steak was cooked as ordered and was melt in your mouth tender.
Service was very friendly and took good care of us.
Overall a very nice experience
Server was good. The food we had was good, but two listed wines were not available and the main I wanted was gone (maybe it was never there?). Oysters were very good and the shrimp po’boy was excellent. Had a good meal there previously. Disappointed that it measured up to our first visit.
Wonderful choice for a birthday dinner! Delicious food and drink, attentive staff, and reasonable prices.
We will be back soon!
We were promptly seated. Our meals were Cod and Flounder lightly breaded and fried. Each dish came with fries and a veggie. I had green beans, my better half had broccoli and green beens. Love the corn bread and hush puppies! Great job on the tasty food! Service was friendly. Overall, we continue to be impressed with Fat Tuna, highly recommend.
Excellent service, Joyce our server was amazing. The oysters and clams were super fresh, the scallops were awesome.
Service was horrible! Getting refills on drinks was almost impossible. Server rarely came to check on the table. Said something to the host and his response was “we’re busy”. Unacceptable answer! Have eaten here a couple of times before without any problems. We were dining with 3 other people who had never been. They loved the food and atmosphere but they also agreed the service was awful.
Oysters were fantastic ! Love Sesame tuna .
I could of done without looking at the head of my husband’s red snapper ! 😳
Great food, great service! The sitting at bar to eat !
Everything was good. I had the fried calamari and oyster po-boy sandwich. Highly recommend.
Restaurant sat us almost immediately even though we were an hour earlier than our reservation time. Excellent service from our server Joyce. Kept our drinks topped off and checked back often to make sure we had everything we needed. Server made a recommendation to our daughter looking for sushi. My daughter loved what she ordered. I couldn’t resist the fried shrimp. Some of the best fried shrimp I’ve ever tasted. Piping hot with just a light dusting of breading. Hubby loved his grilled tuna with mango salsa topping. Only complaint is that the tables are MUCH too close to each other. We could understand full conversations of surrounding tables. Not the ideal dining experience. But the excellent food and service outweighed this inconvenience. We will return!
Great food and awesome service! We would go back again.
I enjoyed the environment of the restaurant. There was a lot of cool artwork and different lights. The food was really good - huge, juicy scallops; fresh, local, and cheap oysters; and hot, tasty cornbread really set the dinner off right. I would go back.
This was one of the few places open in Williamsburg on Christmas Day. The atmosphere was more ‘diner’ casual than we expected and menu was more pub style. Good crab cake sandwich.
The restaurant was busy as it was Christmas Day
The staff was very friendly and helpful with explaining the dishes on the menu
The server Nazli was excellent in all ways
The staff worked so hard to accommodate all the guests that were waiting
Fresh seafood that was great. My wife had flounder while I had shrimp, oysters and clams. I also had the baked macaroni and cheese which was surprisingly good. Would definitely go back.
My dining experience was on Christmas Day and the restaurant was very busy. Maybe on another day it would have been average but I doubt it would ever be above average.
Lovely looking restaurant great food and staff server Nazli brilliant can not say anymore just out of this world
First time visit and very glad we made this choice. Easy access, comfortable seating, quality food choices and excellent service from Julia.
Since we all love seafood this was a good choice. The fried oysters were delicious, not overly cooked. The seafood platter contained shrimp, oysters, flounder and scallops and contained enough to share. Our server was attentive, quickly serving us hush puppies and corn muffins when we were seated. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy seafood.
