    Limited menu. We saw people leave because they weren’t getting service…even after pointing it out to their server. They told us there was a limited menu due to a new chef. This last time we attempted to dine here, we were told the kitchen closed at 8. Many hours before their true closing. Guess alcohol sales are more important than food. We’ve seen this before with other restaurants. They are now out of business. Hopefully Phat Sammy’s can up their game and survive whatever transitions they are going through.

    The waiter told us the cook quit that day and there was a very limited menu that night. The amount of food that we received for the price that it cost wasn’t much.

    Love the atmosphere and the cocktails were delicious. However, almost every item we tried to order, they were out of something. Tried to order the chips and dip appetizer, they were out of the dipping sauce. Ordered the Pork Belly appetizer instead, but learned once it arrived at the table that they were out of the squid topping. When ordering drinks, they were out of the Boba for most of the cocktails. When ordering dinner, the waitress notified us when we tried ordering multiple different entrees that some of the ingredients they were out of. The food overall was good, but the service and the shortage of a lot of ingredients was a let down.

    What happens when a Tiki Bar and a Fine Dining Restaurant have an affair.....🤔 They have a baby named PHAT SAMMY'S ( @phatsammys ), in downtown Huntsville, AL!!! 🗿💘🍍 This is now one of my FAVORITES, in the world! Yasss!!! It's the total vibe for me, from the time you trek down the stairs, to the speakeasy, you get hit with the bright tiki/tropical vibes, to the time you're welcomed by your server and served some of the top notch gourmet meals of yo lifeee y'all!!! I specifically had their Valentine's Day menu, why...because #TreatYoSelf !!! 😝🤟 And, it was Valentine's Day! 🥰🌺 I was served Fry Bread, Plum Salad, Sweet Curry Carrot Soup, Ceviche, Chef's Tender Loin (cooked to perfection) and all the desserts!!! Lime Panna Cotta and decadent Chocolate Mousse, With Strawberries!!! 🍰🍫🍓 I couldn't have asked for a romantical night, with myself!!! And, they gave each table a lovely Valentine's Day gift also!!! So fitting! 😉 The perfect marriage of flavors, from one course, to another, in addition to the cocktails, was INSANE!!! I will definitely be back, because they also have such a fun-loving team and just help make every guest's experience a lovely one!!! 🌞🍹🤙 #PhatSammys #HuntsvilleAL #tikibar #speakeasy #downtown #allthevibes #goodvibrations #ValentinesDay #lovedaygourmet #gourmetfood #supportsmallbusiness #supportlocal #PassportToGoodEats

    Jacks our waiter was very attentive first off! Our first time so we weren’t sure where to start we would have tried 8 more items if we had the stomach We had the Phat Fries amazing how the multiple ingredients worked together. The next 2 items were the K- Max burger and the hot dog- both were good but the Kmac was excellent- probably my love for hotdogs made make the other decision- not that it was bad it was just wasn’t as good as Kmac- amazingly the side’s actually were as good- the Brussels sprouts and veggies with Bok Choi were amazing as well- Drinks were finely crafted hats off to the bartender mine had bourbon and bitters - my wife had a drink that actually came in a spam can- I know interesting right- I can’t wait to go back and try 4 more new items- this place actually pulled off a fusion restaurant properly- like to see more desert options but other than that 5 star! Thanks Phat Sammy’s

    The food was good but the service was SLOW. The waitstaff did not check with our table and we always had to get her attention. The bar orders were the biggest issue (not the fault of the waitstaff), because the bartender spent more time talking to the two or three people sitting at the bar than preparing drinks.

    The food was phenomenal and service was great. My only (quite large) concern was their selection of music. I have no issue with rap music but prefer not to hear the f word multiple times throughout multiple songs while I am trying to enjoy a meal with my 13 and 17 year old sons.

    They advertised Drag Trivia and a few of us went to play because of that and there was so drag trivia, just regular trivia. It was boring and the waitress got sarcastic with us. Not a fun experience at all. Won't go back.

    I love Phat Sammy's! The food does not disappoint. Definitely check out the phat fries, brussels sprouts, spam fried rice-- all delicious! The sake colada and pina colada drinks are wonderful if you like sweet drinks. If you have a group of 4 or more, try the scorpion or aquarium drinks! :)

    The food was fantastic. The atmosphere was unique and fun. Our server was amazing! She made recommendations for everyone in our group based on a few quick questions and no one walked away disappointed. Overall a great experience for a girls’ night out. We will be going back. One note: be sure to make reservations ahead of time or expect to be turned away if you’re a group or have a very long wait otherwise. This place is popular and seating is limited.

    My girlfriend and I went for a wonderful date out. The drinks were great and the food was delicious. But we were thoroughly disappointed with our service. We WILL go back and hopefully get a different server. We sat and watched her as she joked and laughed while giving great service to everyone but us.

    Great basement venue. The staff were so nice and explained everything. It’s a very unique menu with traditional Polynesian dishes modernized. The Battleship Curry was very tasty. The island drinks were refreshing on a 100F day! I had my first Red Stripe in years - when did it got from a full 12 oz to 11 oz?? Got there on drag queen trivia night and it was a lot of fun. I’ll go back!

    We went for a Japanese pub food special event that sounded cool and spent like $80 and for sure should have just gone to a Japanese restaurant instead. The menu all seemed cool but everything had like an off ratio of ingredients or something. I really like Japanese food so I'm not unfamiliar with the flavors or anything. Also they were playing like 90s skating rink music and I was surprised that they couldn't be bothered to change the music to be on theme for the night. Our server was nice but got kinda swamped, which is surprising at a reservation-only event, but it was ok. I'll probably be back for a drink sometime but definitely not going to go to any future events.
