Worst service in Picayune. Sat us down as two tables were served, ate and new customers served before we got our drinks. Then those two tables are and was gone before we got our food which consisted of Two Shrimp Po boys and a salad....Ridiculous! Military discount $1.67??? Po boy bread had to be a week old. Never again.More

Keith as the owner of Fatty's Seafood Restaurant I am confused by your "interracial" comment. We are an equal opportunity employer and always have been. We offer a 15% military discount to all service folks which is higher than the 10% that other establishments such...More

Service was five stars food and price three! Four entres, two way over priced, one cold and the fourth was the cheapest and the only good one, Catfish and fries. But not worth $16.00. The fish was good the frozen fries were frozen fries. Can't...really mess them up.More

I recently placed an order from Fatty’s for delivery. My order included a Caesar salad with blackened shrimp, a cup of soup and the “Fat Cat” which Fatty’s describes as “Crawfish étouffée served over rice & topped with fried catfish.” The only part of my...order that was correct was the cup of soup. I received a garden salad and the above picture is what I received for “the fat cat”, there was not one piece of catfish. I messaged this picture to Fatty’s through Facebook and over a week later they replied with a thumbs-up sign.More

We had a group of about 50. Reservations had been made well in advance. The food was good, but the service slow and understaffed. I'm not sure I would try it again.

I had won a BOGO offer and decided to get a whole oyster po-boy with the free half po-boy. I called in the order and told the woman that my husband would pick it up shortly. Because I refused the give her my credit card...info. she said that my order couldn't be started until he came into the restaurant to pick it up. When he arrived there no one knew anything about my order or never owned up to it. They asked him for a code which he knew nothing about...nor did I. Consequently, he came home without any food. Do not respond to any of Fatty's promotions if you don't want to come away emptyhanded.More

There food is good except for one spice that throws everything off. I'm not sure what it is but I had the crawish etoufee and fried fish and it wasn't the best. It is kind of pricey so I need to really like it to...make me want to go back. I went once before about a year ago so decided to give it another try.More

We had dinner here in early May while visiting Picayune. It turned out to be the first day restaurants were able to serve customers inside. What a treat - our waitress was very capable and friendly, the food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the...entire experience. I highly recommend the Fat Cat dinner selection; fried catfish fillets served over a bed of crawfish etoufee. It was outstanding. We will definitely eat here again.More

Fatty's was our go-to seafood restaurant even before it opened in Picayune. The owners had a small place in Chalmette, La. before Hurricane Katrina and we often purchased seafood meals there because of their quality. I would recommend it to anyone, unless loud noise bothers...you. The building in Picayune is large but not well insulated against loud chatter. There is an excellent bar and a party room available for rent.More

Read reviews, expected better. Ordered shrimp poboys and fries, Coke’s. Waitress described as OVER stuffed poboys with typical dressing. My over stuffed poboy had “8” Shrimp! Not authentic gulf shrimp. Absolutely NO flavor or seasoning what so ever. I do not know where they are...getting their shrimp but they were tasteless and had a distinctly bad after taste. We literally had to use a lot of salt and even then it was just not a good experience. Lastly it was hot and people were fanning themselves. Not comfortable at all. Such a shame because the building itself was pretty but unfortunately the food was a complete waste of money.More

I ate there twice this week, once for lunch and once for supper. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. I had crawfish for supper and they had some of the best flavor I have had. We also had boiled shrimp and like the...crawfish they were spot on in quality and flavor. This is a great place to take your out of town guest for some great local flavor.More

Traveling through Picayune for the first time and tried the seafood at Fatty's. I had the Fat Cat, which is Crawfish étouffée served over rice and topped with fried catfish. Never eaten crawfish before and it was really good. Also the catfish tasted much better...than others that I have eaten and the environment was good for a relaxing time with friends with open areas and good music playing in the background. I'd go back for a meal anytime.More

We were a little hesitant because of the mixed reviews, but wow were we glad we stopped here! One of the best fried seafood platters we've had anywhere! Everything on the platter was excellent. I am really picky about crab cakes and even those were...close to perfection. Fries were crispy, not greasy, and hush puppies were really good too. Our waitress, Kadey, was sweet and friendly and made us feel at home. 100% happy!More

Just an average Seafood Place.Decent seating area for a group. But the menu was limited and the food was about average in quality and price. We were expecting more.
